For the third day in a row, The Bahamas has recorded no new cases of COVID-19.
The Ministry of Health said yesterday that there remain 80 cases of the virus, with two additional recoveries. In all, 25 people have recovered.
There are 792 people in quarantine.
Minister of Health Dr. Duane Sands has said that The Bahamas has flattened the COVID-19 curve and is “reaping benefits” as a result of recently implemented restrictions.
“[W]hile we continue to have cases and the unfortunate deaths, we have managed to flatten the curve by having a maximum of no more than six cases diagnosed on any one day and our acute care institutions have not been overwhelmed with assessment, management and in-patient treatment of COVID cases,” Sands said on Monday.
At the time, he said there were 47 active cases of the virus in The Bahamas.
He said eight patients were hospitalized in serious or critical condition.
