    It should be said that the information shared about the doctors, is REDO(hearsay). I would like to remind everyone again that Bati Bleki in Papiamento literally means "speaking hearsay". It is not known if the Doctor went to work or not. Nor is it smart to start instigating hatred against a person affected by the virus. Because that is what that article by Rona is doing.

    24ora, the "source" used, is one of the worst news media on the island if you are looking for fact based reporting. They are more a kin to a British tabloid than an actual news organization.

    In more positive news(from official sources), Caribbean Mercantile Bank has announced a complete moratorium on monthly payments for 3 months. Other banks and financial institutions are going to follow. 4 major casinos have also send their workers home with 3 months of pay!

    I like the moves they are making...it will certainly ease the sting. I would love American banks to freeze payments as well but I dont see that coming.

    4th confirmed case of Covid after tonight's briefing. Once again an imported case. An American tourist who was not staying at a hotel. No community transmission as of yet. Hoping it stays that way!

    We are here now at Playa Linda, which becomes more deserted by the day. Most folks we know are leaving by Saturday. Not much is open in Palm Beach. Skeleton staff at resorts . We have tried to overtip staff that we have come to know over the years. They will be suffering from almost a total lack of income for an indefinite amt of time. Some employees will continue to be paid a basic salary, we were informed by a dear friend who works at Pelican Pier. Please keep the citizens of Aruba in your thoughts and prayers. THEY are the ones who make us all long to come back to this beautiful island
