Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis cited recent spikes in COVID-19 cases as the reason for the restrictions, which he announced on Sunday — three weeks after the Caribbean country largely reopened to international travel, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.

“Regrettably, the situation here at home has already deteriorated since we began the reopening of our domestic economy,” Minnis said.

“It has deteriorated at an exponential rate since we reopened our international borders.”
