19 Visited KEMH Due To Road Accidents In April

May 15, 2020

19 people visited the hospital’s Emergency Department or Urgent Care Centre last month due to road traffic accidents, according to the latest statistics from the Bermuda Hospitals Board [BHB]. This is a substantial decrease in the normal amount, presumably due to the ‘Shelter in Place’ regulations, which largely restricted residents from being on the roads.

According to the BHB, “The Bermuda Hospitals Board reports the following road traffic accident statistics for the period 1 January – 30 April 2020:

  • “19 total cases were seen in the Emergency Department of KEMH
  • “3 persons were admitted to to an acute care unit

“The full statistics are available in the table above. The low figures are likely due to the shelter in place order for COVID-19, which was in effect at the time.”

    There were not a lot of good things about shelter in place but the quiet roads were like magic. Now the idiots are back….

      And as hard as it to believe the usual suspects are even more out of control than before because they’re assuming that there’s little chance of seeing any police on the roads .
      I feared for my safety before but now it’s even worse.
