One additional case of coronavirus; man in hospital
A 64-year-old man from New Providence has tested positive for coronavirus, according to the Ministry of Health Covid-19 dashboard. The man has a history of travel and has been hospitalized.
Hundreds of Bahamians who were stuck abroad for months, after borders closed, were recently allowed to return home.
Return flights have brought in Bahamians from the United States, United Kingdom, Cuba, Turks and Caicos Islands, Jamaica, Haiti and Cayman Islands.
The total number of confirmed Covid-19 cases in The Bahamas is 104.
68 people in the country have recovered from the coronavirus, which has killed 11 people locally.
There are 25 active cases and 2 covid-related hospitalizations.
Three months after the first case was confirmed, only 2,294 tests have been carried out.
Former Health Dr. Duane Sands said recently the government has not carried out enough coronavirus testing.
The Bahamas has entered phase 4 of its phased reopening with borders expected to open to untested tourists on July 1.
Sands advised the government not to play Russian roulette amid the pandemic by allowing tourists who have not been tested to enter the country.
There are growing fears this could result in a second wave of the potentially deadly virus.
