Minister of Health the Hon. Dr. Duane Sands said the Ministry confirmed one additional case of COVID-19 – a 29-year-old female from New Providence who is currently in isolation at home.
This brings to 81 the total number of confirmed cases in The Bahamas, Dr. Sands stated during the COVID-19 update press conference at the Ministry of Health, Thursday, April 30, 2020.
He explained that the Ministry has used its daily dashboard to keep the public updated on COVID-19 cases since February 26, 2020. “On March 15th, The Bahamas announced its first COVID-19 case.
“Consequently, a number of adjustments were made to the face of the dashboard to provide Bahamians with a clearer and more accurate picture of the COVID-19 situation in the country.” Dr. Sands noted that Bahamians grew accustomed to seeing worldwide confirmed and recovered cases and the total number of deaths.
