There will not be a "normal" life until a vaccine is developed and released to the public. This is a novel virus, no one has immunity, it will continue to go around until everyone gets it or we get vaccinated. "Normal" will not return for at least 16 months.

The people on ventilators are on them because they need them. They would die quicker without them.

The US has also stopped mask shipments to Canada. Every country is in it for themselves now.

Go to Watlings, well when it opens again. "Uncle Willie", the inventor of the Rum-Dum when he worked at the LCC, works there now and they have the best one in the Bahamas by far!

That is simply untrue, stop spreading fake news.

Actually you are very wrong Birdie. Quarterly imports average about $682MM per quarter, given the lower need for hotel and cruise ship supplies and an economy with lowered spending by the general public will decrease that quarterly average. This is on top of the fact that imports for Abaco apart from building materials are down and many American second home owners rebuilding will send materials that do not impact the foreign reserves. With the depressed economy we will like have over a year of foreign reserves without any new input. Mind you we can't run the foreign reserve to 0 but also that no expert expects this situation to last a full year and most expect it to be behind us in 6 months. Tourism will remain low but it will start to push up the reserve amounts as it trickles into the country.

It would be much better if they were honest about how long they will be shutdown. This will be longer than 30 days. Many cruise lines have already said they will shutdown for at least 60 days. Cupid's Cay in Eleuthera has a 60 closure. This is not only going to be for 30 days. It will be much longer.

That is such a sad sign. I hope enough others will have more resolve in the face of this.
