NASSAU, BAHAMAS – The former health minister says removing the mask mandate by years end, once The Bahamas reaches a 70 percent vaccination rate is not a realistic goal. Marlena Leonard tell us the former minister believes the reason is the slow uptake of COVID-19 vaccines in recent months, while also weighing in on monkeypox.

Free National Movement Chairman, Dr. Duane Sands addressing concerns about monkeypox at a press conference hosted at the party’s headquarters this morning.

Dr. Sands’ primary concern was the recent statement from the Health and Wellness Minister, Dr. Michael Darville.

On Tuesday, Dr. Darville said the COVID-19 mask mandate could be dropped as early as the end of the year once 70% of the public was vaccinated.

But, Dr. Sands suggests the projected end of year goal is unrealistic based on the current rate of vaccination.
