34 deaths and 83 still in hospital, not good!

Minnis always makes himself look even more stupid with every press conference, can't wait to see what his majesty has in-store for us!

The people who are affected may postpone tests because of cost. You need to be tested up to three times before being deemed recovered.

No.

And I do not understand the need to be declared recovered.

I had mumps, chicken pox, measles. Thing run their courses and I do not recall anyone declaring me "recovered".

That chart only says they "tested positive". Perhaps many of those will not manifest the disease and just need to be quarentined to stop spread.

When they test people for TB many test positive but do not have active TB. Same for herpes and leprosy.

it does say over 1500 still infected or active case, that means they can still pass the virus on to others

Still don't know why we need non covid deaths up there to complicate things. Just have covid deaths and leave it simple as that imo

Ma Comrade Amused, what difference would it make to alter the arithmetic by the most prolific collection Incompetent of Liars ever assembled as a governing Central Authority.

I guess (it's all we can do given that government doesn't explain these statistics properly) that covid accelerates or exacerbates existing illnesses such heart disease, diabetes etc.

Our Abacoian comrades who were so determined keep a grip on the virus had for the longest period reported zero to but few spaced out deaths and within what in scope the virus's escalation it now looks like their islands could be trending towards the 100 death mark. Nod Once for Yeah, Twice for No?

It would appear that the numbers grew dramatically after the Mr Gates circus came to town and the IMF handed out a very large loan. It might just be a coincidence, however based on a total lack of transparency on the real numbers and some real crazy stuff coming out of the PM, anything is possible. Maybe Minnis and his cronies can go to Sweden for a week or 2 to see how to deal with a pandemic and not cripple the country’s economy.

... Swedens approach resulted in it having 2-3 times as many deaths compared to other Nordic countries. They were willing to allow their population to be exposed to the risk of death in order to protect the economy. That is immoral in any language!

Exactly. Well-said. Tired of hearing about the supposed Sweden miracle.

There's also a great deal of uncertainty as to how long someone who has recovered from the Covid-19 virus will remain immune to it going forward. Keep in mind too that even those who do survive being infected by this virus are likely to suffer irreparable harm from it that they must live with the rest of their lives.

This is a tiny tiny Tiny tiny proportion of the over all cases. And can be found with influenzas such as h1n1. Bottom line is the vast majority get through this thing either without even knowing they have it or at home with rest immune boosting supplements. I don t understand why people focus on the panic-y And ultimately less prevalent nature of this thing rather than the positive. Let’s wash hands, wear our masks don’t go clubbing and get on with it!!!!?

But far less then other countries that locked down. Including the UK, Spain and Italy. There is 100,000 people facing food uncertainty in this this country, babies facing malnutrition, And yet they death rate still one tenth (even with them throwing unconfirmed cases into the count) of the mortality rate of cardiovascular diseases related to poor diet. Thats immoral! Across the world the hunger pandemic will dwarf what COVID kills and that’s policy result not the disease.

@ tribanon, ...Kudos to you in bringing up critical point on those who survive likely to suffer inreparable harm. It semms to be not to well publicized by authorities or others on the after effects Coroanvirus Survivors medical conditions likely to have affecting their abilities an health.

This should be of great concern to nation, leaders, families of Covid 19 survivors recovered persons, employers having workers recovered with after effects, govt dealing with nation with survivors with medical concerns after effects.

I suppose now, our illustrious P.M. will state " The Competent Authority " now sees fit to lock us down until the infections stop or the economy crashes whichever comes first ! Well at this rate, the economy will long be destroyed before this viral invasion is over and The Bahamas will be known as " A TURD World Country "

The PM's address will attempt to portray his splintered cabinet as being anew in sync to deliver on new promises. Nod Once for Yeah, Twice for No?
