NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Bishop of the Diocese of The Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands Reverend Laish Boyd yesterday suggested that further restrictions were perhaps necessary for New Providence amid a surge of new cases and hospitalizations.
“Nobody likes restrictions, but the current worsening state of the landscape is clear,” Boyd told Eyewitness News.
“We see the numbers rising, daily numbers increasing, younger people dying and our healthcare facilities are full, so that’s really a serious state of affairs.
“I personally think that one of the biggest problems is that people need to take personal responsibility and there isn’t enough of that.
“We still have too many people not paying attention to the protocols.
“That’s alarming because we are really faced with a powder keg that could explode at any minute.
“And so, while we don’t like further restrictions, I think all of us need to work on limiting our activity and I think the restrictions need to extend to every area of our lives.
“We probably have to go back to allowing only so many persons inside of businesses at a time, and all those kinds of things as well.
