  2. Curious says:

    So now Bermuda has “community spread,” right? Untraceable cases are being found every day…

  6. Sister Mary says:

    We might as well had not all those months of shelter in place. This is the most cases we have ever had. It’s getting out of control now.

    So we are fast approaching active cases amounting to 20% of total recorded cases and (it appears, I did not do the math) the larger portion of these via community spread. Minister, the best Christmas you can give us is to shut it all down before the spread goes exponential. Let’s pray that horse hasn’t already bolted.
