Govt: ‘CDC Listing Does Not Match The Reality’

August 7, 2020

The Government said that the CDC has “erroneously classified Bermuda’s COVID-19 risk status as Level 3 – High,” and noted that they have “contacted the US Consulate in Bermuda to communicate its concern with this listing that does not match the reality on the Island.”

A Government spokesperson stated, “The Government of Bermuda was made aware that the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] has erroneously classified Bermuda’s COVID-19 risk status as “Level 3 – High”.

According to the World Health Organization, Bermuda only has Sporadic Cases. This is the lowest WHO classification outside of No COVID-19 cases.”

The spokesperson concluded, “The government has contacted the US Consulate in Bermuda to communicate its concern with this listing that does not match the reality on the Island. Bermuda has one of the most stringent testing regimes in the world and we have worked extremely hard to successfully control the coronavirus on our shores.”

A look at the CDC site shows they are classifying numerous jurisdictions as “Level 3 – High”, including very small remote islands such as Kiribati and Nauru, which have not reported any cases, and the CDC even classifies the Pitcairn Islands – the smallest populated territory in the world with approximately 50 people –  as “Level 3 – High”.

    Seems they don’t want their peoples money coming to Bermuda so they scare their people into not coming to visit. Seems to be just like the beach oil ball contamination bs

    lots off money will leak here because of how well we have handled things they cant have that happen because Bermuda must remain under dept so we can be controlled by the fat cats that run this world

      Who is protesting against Trump? Many of us support him and his efforts to promote his country. His energy and enthusiasm is respected.
      Hope he wins again in November.
