THE latest Ministry of Health COVID-19 Dashboard has recorded 132 new infections in The Bahamas with 94 of them being in New Providence.

The Dashboard, dated July 29, 2021, shows an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases putting The Bahamas on par with regional nations in terms of spikes in new infections. The total number of recorded COVID-19 cases in The Bahamas is 14,677 with deaths at 286.

Over the past week the Pan American Health Organization reported over 1.26 million COVID-19 cases and nearly 29,000 deaths in the region.

Argentina, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, and Paraguay are among the countries reporting the world’s highest weekly death rates. And PAHO reports that cases have more than doubled in the U.S. over the last week, mainly among unvaccinated people.

In recent weeks, various posts made rounds on social media blaming vaccinated Bahamians for spreading the virus and causing the recent spikes of COVID-19. Local doctors and PAHO officials have dispelled those rumours stating that the hospitals are filling up with unvaccinated people who are also dying from the virus.

The Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus is to date the most deadly and contagious addition to the pandemic. Many thought that the recent COVID spike in The Bahamas was due to this version of the disease. PAHO quickly rejected that thought stating that the only variant found in The Bahamas to date was the Alpha variant.

Thankfully there are no new deaths to report on the Ministry’s Dashboard, however, one is under investigation.

Out of the 132 new cases, 80 are males and 52 females. As said 94 of those cases are listed as being in New Providence with 16 in Grand Bahama; 16 in Eleuthera; 3 are recorded in Exuma; one in Abaca; one in Bimini and one listed in the Berry Islands.

One hundred and three people are currently hospitalized with COVID. Ninety-one of them are moderately ill while 12 of them are in Intensive Care Units.

Over the past year and four months, 1,723 people have recovered from COVID-19. To date the 119,041 COVID-19 PCR tests have been conducted.

The Ministry of Health's COVID Dashboard takes me back to the 1960s, when I had the misfortune of having owned the Luxury Model Lada Niva SUV, perhaps the worst engineered, crude handling amongst motor vehicles anyone's hard-earned Sand Dollars could've bought.
A close second crudest qualifier, although engineered to perfection, would've been the Horse Racing Results Dashboard they had out at Hobby Hobby Horse Hall Race Track in Cable Beach, near where today's Baha Mar stands.
The racing results dashboard although designed, engineered, and built to perfection to serve its most basic limited functions was the master craftsmanship work of a Mr. George Minns at his Poitier Lane small engines repair shop, which years was second to none known for its repair excellence?

A whole heap of horse arse. I am convinced by now some of these cases are nothing more than the common cold. All this number manipulation is getting old now.

White House demands CDC to lie. Change wording to more infections among unvaccinated from infections across the board.

In Australia, the corporate controlled government has its population undergoing the strictest of very strick strick Covid enslavement. They are running a national Covid nation jail same as Canada's cruel globalist reset to digital new normal. With the populations of France, Greece and Italy battling their governments on the street to but an end to forced vaccination, child vaccination, QRCode human pass and no no Vax no job, seems the world has had enough of banking Western Power blocks with medical tyranny. They are losing control of the narrow information sphere to propagate a vaccine world. Mexico told big pharma no to its child population getting vaccine let's pray he does not end up like Haiti president.

The science of this dynamic episode in human history as Wells tried to explain is ever evolving speaks to the vaccinated spreading Covid and causing hispital overreach and amplification of deaths. Like our innocent, dedicated to life nurses and physicians union begged, new vaccines are simple experiments, let's wait. But the are vilified. Seems they are not under monitary bribe into dishonesty. We adore you our Physician's and nurses. France, Italy, Greece, UK, stand with you.

And now we know that the great holy Compitant one allowed a religious convention gathering of thousands of persons packed into a small space. According to today's Nassau Guardian. Many may have died who had comorbidities and hundreds injured from this super spreader event. While challenging business owners to force employees to vaccinate they license this horror. Trust the doctor. Doctors leaves lives. Not this time. Lives lost will be termed an oversight.
