Record lows in Nassau... and somehow they did it without a lockdown... surprise surprise.. likely prevalence of infection - 20-30% of population...like everywhere else..let’s hope it stay this way...

These numbers don't make sense. No way Nassau just goes down for no reason...

What’s interesting is when compare the ratio of confirmed cases to daily new cases across countries of similar population size you have nearly the same curve. Drops seem to hit At 30% Of population. We ve seen the same thing across islands here locally.. This seems to suggest a level of herd immunity exists far lower Than 80% and makes thing like lockdowns irrelevant possibly in even dangerous.

I suspect our COVID-19 statistics are now being grossly understated because cruise ships will not be allowed to call at our ports until (1) the CDC and US Dept of State's health alert warnings for The Bahamas indicate our government has the number of COVID-19 cases and related deaths under control, and (2) our seriously under-resourced public health system is no longer overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients.

Stats are being understated by at least by a factor of 10, with that assumption (10 times the number of infections) we are seeing infections likely around 30% of np population and thus the slow down in cases as approaching a level a herd immunity threshold on that island.

Lots of swabbing is being done in Eleuthera right now, so those of you bloggersvwho got addicted to high numbers, should be very happy soon.

The public want and deserve reasonably accurate statistics.
