New Providence reports 120 new COVID-19 cases in four days
What is happening in New Providence?
The Ministry of Health confirmed today that there are 53 additional cases of COVID-19. This brings the total number of confirmed cases to 1,089.
51 of those new cases are in New Providence, which had 40 new cases yesterday.
Grand Bahama recorded two new cases today.
120 people have tested positive in the capital in four days despite being under lockdown for nearly two weeks.
Bahamian citizens and businesses are paying a high price in order to curb the spread of Covid-19 but it doesn’t appear as if the lockdowns are working.
Though citizens are locked away like prisoners four days a week, grocery stores, pharmacies and the national stadium are jam packed with people on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
We need a new plan Mr. Competent Authority. This one isn’t working.
