    Andrea - thanks for being so diligent in your postings.
    Agree that it is good that numbers appear to be heading in right direction.
    DVG posted interesting chart just below the one you posted. First time I have seen them post this data. It is percentage of deaths post 7/2021. 79% unvaccinated. Prayers for all.

    Wow, non-resident numbers really declining. New actives and number of actives back to the level just before Christmas. That is encouraging. Government probably back to the place where they can now handle and house active non-residents. Stress on system to handle new and active cases must be coming down too. All headed in the right direction.

    When looking at the numbers, you need to realize what day of the week they were tested. Non residents would be higher on Friday, Saturday and Sunday because they would be testing Thursday for Friday departure, Friday for Saturday departure and Saturday for Sunday departures.

    Locals tend not to get tested over the weekend because they want to enjoy their weekend, so you will generally see higher numbers on Tuesday(testing Monday).

    Just an observation.

    It is easy to get caught up in the weeds looking at individual day results. Yes, there will be variations from day to day as non-residents test for departure and locals maybe don't wish to test on the weekend, but none of that really matters. What is important is the 7-day moving average, which averages out all of those daily cycles. Johns Hopkins puts the Aruba 7-day average at 441 for January 17. One week earlier, January 10, it was 839, the highest it has ever been. When omicron hit, it rose at a startling rate, but now it's dropping just a quickly. Here's hoping that the trend continues! We are still optimistic about our February 26 trip.

    Yes, I'm also very optimistic that we will keep dropping. We have plans for a late Feb. visit and to close on our condo.
