NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Amid a long and deadly third wave of COVID-19 cases, Princess Margaret Hospital Administrator Mary Walker says occupancy has dropped but she says the situation is still serious as people are still being admitted and workers are tired.

Kyle Walkine reports.



After months of operating at capacity with patients having to stay outside under a tent, the occupancy of COVID patients lingers between the 70s and 80s, according to Princess Margaret Hospital administrator Mary Walker.

Still pretty serious, but a step in the right direction. However, Walker says she doesn’t want to speak too fast.

The third wave remains serious as more people die because of the deadly virus.

According to the latest dashboard, 130 COVID cases were reported yesterday with 89 on New Providence and surprisingly 11 on Mayaguana.

One-hundred and 46 cases remained in hospital, with 19 in the Intensive Care Unit.

The people feeling the brunt of this third wave are those working in the hospital.

With restrictions seemingly loosening a bit, Walker said there has been serious concern over whether new infections and hospitalizations could go up again.

Then there’s the situation at the morgue, which had been overcapacity to the point of bodies being kept in a cooler trailer.
