Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis is scheduled to hold a press conference today and it is widely speculated that he will announce a lockdown.

Last Monday, Minnis announced the implementation of an “immediate” seven-day total lockdown of New Providence, that saw food stores, gas stations, private pharmacies, water depots and other businesses closed.

However, following widespread rebuke of the aggressive measures and the threat of a possible tropical system impacting the country, Minnis lifted the measures.
