Health officials are reminding the public to practice the following measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19:

• Cover your cough or sneeze in your inner elbow or with a tissue; and

• Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as phones, remotes controls, counters, doorknobs, and keyboards.

I hope MPs now begin to see the danger of these absolute powers and demand an immediate end to the strongman competent authority, spreading the powers to a group of persons. And we don't want a competent authority with handpicked yes men either. We need independent thinkers. We already saw the calamity avoided when a couple people met in secret to execute this illplanned lockdown of the country. We can't afford these abrupt stops and starts.

78 in hospital. 9 more people dead, in one month since Dr Minnis decided to speed through the reopening phases with zero benchmarks.

Things will only get much worse going forward unless the vast majority of Bahamians recognize and accept that there's really little or no difference between the corrupt political elitists behind the PLP and FNM parties. These two corrupt political parties must be done away with because they each carry way too much harmful history and baggage.

Wait a minute! Heard on the news that Dr Forbes said the 78 increase is because they counted people already in Sandilands. Huh????

repost: Why would you increase the hospitalizations to include people who are already in hospital? Hospitalization would imply that the person is in critical condition due to COVID complications. But if someone is on male medical for a broken leg, is asymptomatic for COVID, why include them in hospitalizations? It's now clear to me that the spigot is being manipulated to gush numbers out or slow them down based on the position they want to push at the time

If this they're in hospital makes sense then if someone dies and has COVID it should be recorded as a COVID death, it's the same rationale. Who is doing the thinking?

Why do you remain so infatuated by the obvious incompetence and/or deliberate manipulation behind the Cover-19 statistics for The Bahamas? Don't you remember how the Minnis led government ended up with less than 90 deaths caused by Hurricane Dorian when we all know hundreds and hundreds perished last September both during and shortly after that horrifically devastating Cat 5+ event?

All you really need to know is that corrupt politicians like Minnis and D'Aguilar are very much prone to painting the picture that they believe will best serve their own political interests, as perceived both locally and from abroad.

And Renward Wells as minister of health is certainly no different from Minnis and D'Aguilar when it comes to his inclination to manipulate the facts in an effort to look out for his own political interests above all else.

No! You're the one always doing the politics thing. The rest of us care about what's happening to our family members, ourselves, our businesses/employers and our country as a whole.

I'm sitting here wondering what the conversations would be on this Board if the government hadn't opened the borders last month. I'd probably bet my last Dollar, that we would all be complaining that Minnis and his cronies are useless dictators because they refuse to reopen the borders, even though there hasn't been a new COVID case recorded in 2 months. As they say, hindsight is 20/20.

And you know what they say about people who use the "damned if you do, damned if don't" excuse to justify the foolishness and stupidity of others.
