False Information Circulating In Voice Note Again

April 6, 2020 | 1 Comment

A voice note in circulation claiming that 6 flights carrying 600 passengers are scheduled to arrive in Bermuda today is not accurate, the Government said this evening.

A Government spokesperson said, “The Bermuda Government continues working to provide accurate up to date information on Covid-19. Unfortunately, there are persons in the community committed to spreading false information, resulting in panic, confusion, fear, and frustration.

“Recently, the government became aware of a voice note in circulation claiming that 6 flights carrying 600 passengers are scheduled to arrive in Bermuda today. This information is false.

“There is one charter flight scheduled to arrive today from London, Heathrow Airport, to return approximately 120 Bermuda residents and continue on to other destinations. Another charter flight is scheduled to arrive in Bermuda from the U.S. tomorrow.

“This flight will return approximately 80 Bermuda residents and depart later that day with 44 U.S. Nationals to return home. The crew on both flights will not disembark in Bermuda.

“Furthermore, to control the spread of COVID-19, every returning resident is required to complete a comprehensive health declaration form: https://forms.gov.bm/covid19, and will immediately undergo quarantine in a Government approved facility for 14 days

“We understand many have not seen our loved ones for some time and emotions may get the best of us. However, friends and family members are urged to adhere to the mandatory Shelter in Place Guidelines and reminded the airport is not a permitted business, and as such, they cannot attend. Anyone found in contravention of the shelter in place guidelines without permission or just cause may be arrested and charged.

“The Government is committed to keeping the public up to date and informed on all developments relating to COVID-19. As such, we urge against believing all that is shared, especially through social media, and ask that all information be verified through reputable sources.”

    While everybody is trying to sort out right from wrong and you cannot blame them especially when your life is turned up side down .

    I am not a Doctor or a Scientist however I am a realist , I decided to explore what I would do if I was a cast away on a deserted island, I would look for what is and not available to me .

    What do we know about C19 ? Well it has friends and they are people.

    C19 has as far as we know does have one posibly enemy, and correct me if I am wrong, that enemy is HEAT.

    Prevention is the ultimate cure .
    It is important to eat properly and I take vitamins to maintain a healthy body balance.

    Lets get personal, over my many years I have survived many head colds , I have also survived many bouts of flu and on two occasions two bouts of Pneumonia , those was rough it makes a grown man cry, as it starves the whole body of Oxygen including brain and heart ,you turn into a vegetable, you go to a place called never never land.

    If you only knew the suffering you would endure you would strictly obey our recent preventative laws to the letter.

    My magic bullet is the hot 30 minute steamy bath, as hot as you can sensibly take it, add hot water when necessary and cover your self in the tub with a beach towel to hold in the heat , after which I go to bed with the room heater on and several blankets to break the fever.

    stay home
