A POPULATION DIVIDED: Pandemic “over” for vaccinated Bahamians but not the non-vaccinated, says Minnis

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis said yesterday that the country is currently in two pandemics: one for vaccinated individuals and another for the non-vaccinated.

Minnis made the comments after new coronavirus cases climbed to the triple digits over the weekend and as hospitalizations continue to rapidly rise.

Speaking to the matter on the sidelines of the Investiture ceremony for the Queen’s New Year and Birthday Honours 2020, the prime minister acknowledged the rise in cases, noting that it is concerning.

“One thing the Bahamian populace must understand — we are in two pandemics,” he said.
