    Could the Ministry say if the positive case is a returning resident? One positive with no information, yet they can set out all the useless information of ages and the R below 1. It’s been several weeks now with 4 active – has no one recovered? Is there anyone with any common sense or understanding of the situation, or is the Ministry as clueless as the Minister?

      With more information on all cases under investigation.

    • Question says:

      She ‘doesn’t have that information right now’, would be the usual response.

    • Can’t believe it. says:

      Such unjust criticism.Bermuda has done well with the virus.

    I do see that last report showed 53 imported and this shows 54. Resident or Visitor is a good question.
