Interestingly enough, these people may have been infected the FIRST day the border opened!!! Because we know it takes up to 7 days for symptoms to appear

The hotels and cruise lines are closed. If their reaction to this was to shut down what are they gonna do when the hotels open? this can't be the plan.

No names are ever given. Grand Bahama is a small community, if you give the name then that would greatly speed up the contact tracing and persons who know the individual and been in recient closs contact could go and get tested. That is how to reduce the spread.

Justin Trudeau and Donald Trump's vastly opposite CORONA19 outcome of how they handled the virus.

Like Canada, our borders should not have been opened to the U.S. until they got the pandemic under control. We will suffer a serious second wave and another even more painful shutdown. Will it worth the few U.S. tourist dollars?

How do we really know how factual these so-called case numbers actually are, here or internationally? How serious are the cases included in all the media hype? How much is just an influenza and how many cases are life threatening? Do we really know the reality of the numbers, in our Country or abroad? One day we may just discover the origin and global intent of the releasing of this deadly virus....

the only thing you can know with 100% certainty is the numbers are worse than what's being reported. In the Bahamas specifically, the numbers are way worse, cuz their strategy is not to test and brand the Bahamas as covid free

Already know, but it doesn’t matter, nothing anyone can do about it as long as the US running the planet.

As the US economy goes so does the rest of the world. So, simply destroy the global economy, have every leader under the sun obey these orders, reward those who obey, or destroy those who disobey. Minnis hands are tied, what he does does not have to make sense, he just needs to obey. Mission is on course.
