Many Bahamians have shown themselves to be complete idiots who think they are on holiday, so obviously the rates of infection and subsequent deaths must increase. I stood on a line for the grocery store today and observed people standing next to each other as though they were at a social event with barely any space between them. There were also couples and parents with two or more grown children on the lines and shopping in the store, in spite of the PMs declaration that there be ONE designated shopper per house. With this kind of idiocy, things will have to get much worse before it gets better. It is now clear that we, the Bahamian people are our own worse enemy!

Some people visit 3-4 different food stores everyday along with their entire families. The more these fools keep doing this the more people will get sick and the more the curfew will be extended. Some even claim that they don't have to work anymore because NIB will take care of them. Seriously,are there so many idiots in this country?
