25 patients have recovered

Those 25 patients shouldn't even be listed as "recovered", knowing how incompetent and slow our health care system is, its painfully obvious that the "recovered" patients aren't being tested negative 2-3 times, they're only listed as recovered because they're not exhibiting any more symptoms, thus they can still be positive for the virus and spread it even without symptoms, not good at all, Minnis and Sands waited 10+ weeks too late to get the country prepared for a major outbreak of the China Virus, and hurricane season is only one month away!!!!

Just a few days ago there were no reported cases. It was said by health officials that the curve was being flattened. However, it is my belief that health officials ran out of testing supplies. Shortly after two residents disembark illegally because they made donations of testing supplies, the number of confirmed corona cases are increasing again. Why not just say, three days of no cases of the virus is due to the fact that we ran out of testing kits.

How many persons have died at home from this virus. I am sure once they are taken to the morgues they are not tested to see if they had the virus. Maybe that is why the number of death is at 11. If there is conflicting numbers for the total number of people who died because of hurricane Dorian on Abaco and Grand Bahama, I am sure the death toll for the virus are not accurate also.

how you get that from the ten people who was in the store with you:)) There are people on the far end of the island who dont even know anything change...except for the fact They can't go to the country club. They probably on their yacht right now or playing tennis at their private court or having Sunday brunch. As to not dressing up...take a look at Steve Jobs. Man judges by the outward appearance you don't know what them people feeling this could be the time of their life away from that snake pit of a job.. just sayin...

(people dress for the food store? It's the foodstore)

Take pride in your presentation - it makes you a more self aware and a better person. A personal sense of well being achieved through dressing well and appropriately as well as making a habit of proper hygiene does wonders for self image. We don't wish to look at Walmart dress attitudes while shopping for food!

It is important to take pride in appeaeance.nonetheless it must be a sideeffect of something that we see a white man in flip flops and ready to sing and dance for a tip but ready to call the black man a joneser.

Just wondering...

Are the new cases people that were already in Quarantine? It would be helpful to know if it’s somewhat contained.
