NASSAU, BAHAMAS — The Bahamas appears on track to outpace its highest number of cases recorded in a single month since the onset of the pandemic if the current upward trend continues, an Eyewitness News analysis indicates.
This month so far, the nation has recorded 1,722 confirmed cases.
This is around the same number of cases The Bahamas recorded in August 2020, close to the peak of the country’s second wave.
The Bahamas remains in the third wave of the pandemic, though some pundits have referred to the current surge as a “fourth wave”, noting that low double-digit cases were recorded in January and February before cases began doubling again.
In August 2020, there were 1,643 confirmed cases, up from the just over 470 cases recorded in July 2020 — a 250 percent increase.
