Is the law limiting the total number of campaigners to 5 vaccinated individuals not applicable in this case? Or is covid less transmissible during nomination celebrations?

Expect the Covid cases to double next week and triple after election. Minnis led y’all to the slaughter! And Brave did no better. Get the refrigerated containers ready for dead bodies

Obviously as long as you are a politician in the Bahamas you and your entourage not only you are immune to Covid but you are allowed to do as you wish. For the rest of us more restrictions and maybe a series of lockdowns may be necessary in the future. Do not forget all the decisions are made out of an abundance of precaution and after consultation with medical experts.
