The US has recorded more than 3,809,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases since the pandemic began. Another grim statistic is that the death toll stands at around 138,000. The reemergence of the virus pandemic has resulted in the Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Minni banning American tourists from entry.
Minni announced the ban over the weekend and also declared flights to the US would be halted.
He said the virus pandemic in the Bahamas has worsened “at an exponential rate” since the country, located within the Lucayan Archipelago of the West Indies in the Caribbean, reopened its international border in early July.
