Inagua woman gets Covid-19 from New Yorker son
An Inagua woman is the island’s first case of the coronavirus. She got infected from her son who lives in New York.
The woman was transported to New Providence on Sunday with symptoms. The Ministry of Health is now conducting contact tracing because the woman hails from a close-knit family. Residents fear some of her relatives may also be infected.
On Sunday, Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis listed Inagua as one of the islands that would no longer be under the two-week lockdown as of Monday.
That means business activity has been allowed to resume. It is unclear if those restrictions will be imposed once again now that the island has found its way on the Covid-19 dashboard.
There are now 989 coronavirus cases in The Bahamas.
