Reduced cases over a four day period is a good sign. The Hranf Bahama cases having to receive intensive care is not a good sign. Has a new strain of the virus entered Grand Bahama?

Johnny still waiting on that evidence (any evidence) that there is a new more deadly strain of covid... because to the contrary the newer strains are in fact reported to be less deadly perhaps more infectious but the distinctions Are clinically insignificant.

We ll see what happens but my forecast (and hope) is that We would see significant decreases in new cases once Nassau hits around 5k-6k in cases - with a 10x factor of magnitude for undetected cases that would put infections 50-60k and roughly 20-30% of the population which is the threshold at which we have seen significant decreases in other hotspot across the globe. It is not an end of cases but sees a diminished increase and manageable level of infection in the community. I hope this is the case...we ll see... of course this al depends on the number of undetected cases, testing levels, and the specificity of the pcr tests...

Don’t fall in love with your masks. The wearing of disposable masks should be encouraged for all front line workers, including retail stores and bank tellers. These masks should be removed and disposed of before leaving place of employment and can be replaced with a cloth mask until the next work day. You don’t see doctors and nurses leaving the hospital in masks they been seeing sick people in all day and take them home and throw them on the dining table.
