    Who is being tested. How many tests do we have left, have we bought more, of so, where from. This could be a bunch of nonsense. Also how are we managing to process 800 tests a day.

    When will we run out of tests?

    • More ignorant questions says:

      Where have you been??? So I guess for you there’s supposed to be a load of positive results?? Then you can justify that it’s been done property?? Smfh….. Waste of energy to give you a real answer. You should be grateful that they are negative but no, your one of those that want to push some bs narrative

    Are old negative swabs just being reused? Not so long ago we were told Bermuda only had a months supply left, and that was when a few hundred a day were being tested and the airport just reopened. If these results are true, why is the population under any mandate to wear masks? Bermuda is clearly Covid free, but I don’t believe it. It makes no sense to have no positives. What is being hidden?
