    Today's numbers. 26 new infections have been detected, 22 of them among residents (local infection rate 8 %). 20 people have been recovered. The total number of active cases now stands at 336; 302 residents and 34 tourists. On average there are 28 new cases per day with an average daily local infection rate of 12 %.
    ]Right now there are 24 patients in an ICU in Colombia. Already there are six ICU patients (four active Covid, two post-Covid) and 26 in the Covid ward (14 active Covid, 12 post-Covid).

    Thanks for the info. New to forum. First visit to Aruba was in 1973 - things have really changes. Been back several times, including 6 out of past 7 years (last year the exception). Looking forward to coming back this Nov/Dec Made many good friends over the years. Unfortunately, one passed from Covid just before vaccines came out. He will be missed; may he rest in peace.

    Any comment on Aruba's vaccination program. From what I can see, they are truly ahead of the pack. Over 75% total population and closing in on 70% fully vaccinated. Keep up the good work!! With those who have suffered through Covid, Aruba must be close to "herd" immunity. I know the gov't goal was 80%.

    Thanks again.

    Appreciate the greetings.

    I am an analytical statistics nut, especially on Covid. Do you know how many Arubians (hope I am saying that correctly) are 12 or younger. Thought I saw something that had that number around 20% of total population. If so, that would mean Aruba is closing in on 100% vaccinated for those eligible to be vaccinated. Understand it will never be 100%, but mid 90’s would be great and something that the Aruba gov’t should be proud of and make known.
