Kudos to govt on crisis response

Dear Editor,

I wish to thank our prime minister, his Cabinet, especially Dr. Duane Sands, the minister of health, and the medical team, for the excellent way in which they have led and guided us through the dreaded coronavirus pandemic.

I noted with alarm that Opposition Leader Philip Davis and PLP Senator Fred Mitchell stated that the government had overreacted by its use of emergency powers so early, but by watching the problems worldwide, I thank them for acting in this way to avoid or attempt to avoid what is happening in Italy and other countries.

From a voicemail, it appears that Mr. Mitchell has revised his position, but I can only say thank goodness we have Dr. Minnis and Dr. Sands at the forefront of our fight.

Now, we can only hope that Bahamians will obey the laws and rules or the disobedient among us will threaten the health of us all…

Jeanne Thompson
