Low Level Persistent Spread

Low-Level but Persistent Spread

Like Cuba, Bahrain is an island. Like Cuba, Bahrain has closed off its airport to visitors. Unlike Cuba, Bahrain has an artificial land bridge to Saudi Arabia, but traffic has been and remains exit only. Both countries have low levels of infection. In Havana, the authorities have ordered a modified lockdown because of the “low-level but persistent” spread of the Sickness. This is exactly the situation in Bahrain. A low-level but persistent spread keeps the number of cases hovering around 3000.

A lockdown is one way to stop the spread.
