    28 remain under quarantine

    17 staff 11 passengers

    300 can leave the ship

    its a good bet the entire Sea Org staff who can leave stay on the ship

    they still have a few days until others are cleared to go.

    How many are trained medical staff.

    How many of those have been vaccinated?

    or do the Billet some staff on shore?

    the odds go up there is one or more cases of measles to develop

    push it into a longer extended quarantine?

    its a good bet the 100's guests who were cleared to would leave.

    11 public Scientologists remain on the Measlewindz...

    Latest News, 4 hours ago.....Monday May 13th. Day 15 of the official Quarantine.

    "WILLEMSTAD - Authorities in Curaçao announced Saturday that 17 crew members and 11 passengers must stay aboard a ship owned by the Church of Scientology that is under quarantine following a confirmed case of measles.
    Dr. Izzy Gerstenbluth said the group is required to stay on the 440-feet Freewinds ship until May 13 because they are still at risk of contracting measles after a female crew member contracted the disease."

    Kind of this was just 4 hours ago. And today is the 13th....So are these 28 people still quarantined or not?

    Don't know...

    Those who have been exposed to the Scientologists on the Freewinds (or anywhere else) for any length of time are at risk of catching something far more dangerous than measles.

    The medical term is A.S.S.D.

    Stands for Acquired Severe Stupidity Disorder.

    Symptoms include financial bankruptcy, broken families, sudden loss of common sense, becoming delusional, and numerous other symptoms.

    New York Times: Despite Measles Warnings, Anti-Vaccine Rally Draws Hundreds of Ultra-Orthodox Jews

    By Kimiko de Freytas-Tamura

    But the rally on Monday in Monsey, a Rockland County town about 30 miles northwest of New York City, vividly illustrated how the anti-vaccine fervor is not only enduring, but may be growing: Hundreds of ultra-Orthodox Jews packed a ballroom for a “vaccine symposium” with leaders of the anti-vaccination movement.

    Organized by a Monsey-based Jewish group, the event also showed how the movement was gaining ground: Greg Mitchell, a Washington-based lobbyist who represents the Church of Scientology, attended the meeting and addressed the crowd, offering to be their “voice in the public-policy game.”

    Rabbi At Anti-Vaccination Symposium Blames 'Illegals' For Spreading Disease

    * * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

    D.C. lobbyist Greg Mitchell took the stage after Rabbi Handler. Mitchell has pushed for such causes as the First Step Act, the criminal justice reform bill signed into law late last year by President Trump. Mitchell, according to a report from the Daily Beast, was booted from those efforts when organizers found out he was also lobbying for the Church of Scientology, and that the church was potentially trying to convert formerly incarcerated people through a nonprofit it runs.

    “I will be your voice in Washington, I’ll make it will help you carry your message; I will stand next to you,” Mitchell said, admitting not to know much about the vaccine safety issue and deferring to the expertise of other speakers. “I’m your lobbyist, I’m here to help you.”

    Those that are anti-vaccine should have to do the following:

    Never take antibiotics - after all some people are allergic and may have a bad reaction, so do not take it so you support those poor people.
    Never take allergy medications - after all some people are allergic or have reactions. Just let the snot flow & if you get phenomena oh well.
    Never take fever reducers - after all some people are allergic or have reactions. Let the fever burn it's self out.
    Never take blood pressure medications - if God wants you to die of a heart attack or stroke let his will be done.
    Never take cholesterol medications - some are bad for you and it will take years for your arteries to clog up & you have a heart attack or stroke.
    Never take diabetic medications/shots - you can adjust your diet, if you lived a sin free life you would not have this problem.
    Never take any medications that the doctor orders - tests were done on animals & humans before it became available - how can you live with yourself.

    I had a great aunt & an uncle that had polio, I saw the effects, I protected my kids. I had my kids vaccinated - I did wait until they were slightly older than the usual age, additional size/weight seems to help reduce the change of bad side effects. I also gave the antibiotics and other medications when needed. Yes they could have died form the "cure" - but they could have died from the cause. I am allergic to aspirin/aspirin products, I do not take them. I am type two diabetic, have high cholesterol & I take medications for these issues.

    Anti-vaccine folks should have to care for people who are ill due to a lack of vaccination. The reality is not has pretty or noble as the cause leads them to believe.
