So we have more deaths than recovered. Should I be worried? 6/11 = 55%. We have a 45% chance of living if we get it. I am excited for the 4 WEEK SHUTDOWN

Not true. We have no idea of the cases out there. None.

Yes we don't know the exact number of cases because these are results from 2-3 weeks ago. At this present moment, we have had 36 CONFIRMED cases. If you are over 50, please stay home. Encourage family members to take precautions while they are out. Stay safe Bahamas.

Minnis says they are on the hunt for super spreaders. So the lockdown may be used to identify and track them down.

Wouldn't it be interesting to hear how "they" intend to track down the so-called super spreaders? Or is not possible for the rest of us "mere mortals" to understand such plans?
