PM HUBERT MINNIS AND Opposition Leader Philip Brave Davis Q.C.

PM Minnis appears to be obsessed with exerting power and crushing the most vulnerable and never delivering clear scientific data to support his policy. Even former Minister for Health has supported the Opposition Scientific suggestion to increase testing along with contract tracing to better manage the spread of Covid19.

Over the last week since the airspace reopened some four new cases have emerged after months of flights stopped from entering the country.
