The Ministry of Health confirms a new case of COVID-19 in Grand Bahama. This brings the total number of confirmed cases to eleven (11). This latest case is a thirty-five (35) year old female with no history of travel, and no known links to previous cases. The newly confirmed case remains stable and is in isolation at home. Health officials continue to follow the condition of the other ten (10) COVID-19 positive cases. None of the previous cases announced are in hospital, and all are in stable condition.
In view of the increasing numbers of COVID-19 positive cases, the Ministry of Health has decided to change the format of the COVID-19 Bahamas Dashboard to reflect the following statistics:
• “Confirmed, Suspected and Recorded Cases” will now be amended to “Confirmed Cases;”
• “Current Persons in Quarantine Facility” will now be amended to “Total Persons in Quarantine.” This new statistic will reflect the number persons in the Quarantine Facility and those persons who have been requested by a Ministry of Health-related health care provider to remain in self-quarantine;
• The “Number of Persons Released from Quarantine” will be omitted; • The number of “Recovered Cases” and “Deaths” will be added to the new Dashboard.
Members of the public are reminded to follow the Emergency Powers (COVID-19) Order announced by Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Dr. Hubert Minnis to reduce the spread of the virus, including physical distancing.
