Video: Premier On Proposal For ‘Covid Passport’

March 29, 2021 | 31 Comments

There is a proposal for a form of a “Covid passport,” Premier David Burt said, explaining that it is just “a simple way of having your vaccine card”, and the considerations are there to possibly use them for matters such as travel and large events, not for day to day use.

Speaking during a Q&A session held last night with Dr. Carika Weldon, Premier Burt said, “The intention is to have those in place by May 1st. I actually have in front of me that I have printed out, the proposal for a Covid passport, and it will be based on QR codes.

“I think that it’s important, it’s a question of when, and how it will be used. I think that the use will be limited.

“I think it will be at the border will be one thing. And I think it will be part of a travel authorization process, so there is a process for verification, someone’s vaccine status, so they can come in and have something that they can show and share.

“I think it might be other places where it might be used locally is for large events, I can’t see being used on a daily basis for just simple day in, and day out use, but the considerations are there, but we are going to be launching something.

“A vaccine passport just is a simple way of having your vaccine card, except for it’s something that can be digital and something that could be a lot easier and can be used, and can be stored on your phone. So you don’t have to, I would say, carry around that card, which could easily be faked.”

  1. LOL (original) says:

    Totally against this. This boarders mark of the beast stuff. So you will not be able to buy, sell or participate in society with out this?! I say no.

    LOL this should not be mandatory on a Governmental of a private business but ultimately it will be private corps that institute this.

    • Unbelievable says:

      Nothing you can do about it because it’s coming. Bermuda WILL adhere to the will of the outside world. We have no power in the matter.

      • LOL (original) says:

        I know that Bermuda will bend to others will. Just remember your own words when they decide to remove all your freedoms or try to institute a human carbon tax or mileage tax like they are trying right now in the US.

    • Computer Guy says:

      He specifically said that it’s not for day-to-day use just for travel authorizations or large events.

      • LOL (original) says:

        That will change in a matter of time.

        • Dwbi says:

          Typical religious sheep what you just stated is a slippery slope fallacy and we don’t need to be listening to anybody that still believes in a god in 2021.

          • LOL (original) says:

            Yes cause the absents of religions which people are experimenting with are leading us in the right direction for sure, lets look at the one country to really do that and they have no issue with keeping people around to farm organs…….LOL

            I am talking about things already happening and being pondered in the US in states like NY. You really need to talk you head out of your rear and open your eyes and ears. Like I have said to others I have a math question for you I bet you just can’t answer that would prove creation weather your religious or not but like others you will not even attempt it cause numbers can’t lie.

      • Bdaboy says:

        Just like 14 days to slow the spread…. a year ago

      • Eye roll says:

        He did not specifically say it would not be for day to day use. He was intentionally ambiguous with vague comments like “I THINK that the use will be limited” and “I can’t see it being used on a daily basis…but the considerations are there”. Bermudians are so gullible and dumb!

        • Politricks says:

          Politician speak for saying, “yeah it probably will be required, but I don’t want to be the one to say it.” Premier Burt does know how to polic-speak, that’s for sure.

    • Reality Check says:

      There will be, worldwide and in Bermuda, a significant number of people that choose not to get the vaccine. Conceivably as high as 30 or 40% of the population. My guess is that there will be an alternative in addition to the passport as airlines and private businesses will not want to preclude such a significant number of customers from using their businesses. Probably along the lines of a vaccine passport OR proof of a negative test within the last 3-5 days.
      The truth is, even if you have had a vaccine, you can still be a carrier of Covid and infect other people. So am unclear why a vaccine passport is so necessary and achieves what exactly?

    • 2020 Won says:

      Better not let THOSE boarders cross our border init? Otherwise, next thing you know, we’ll have to accept all the exceptions.

  2. D says:

    Call an election.

  3. Right says:

    Totally ridiculous. Call an election now, OBA could slip in now to save us!

    • LOL (original) says:

      Actually I think they are just as bad.

      • sandgrownan says:

        Much as I despise The Naked Emperor, can’t see the OBA being any better in this regard.

        Now, on the economy however…..

  4. BS says:

    So i need a passport to attend events and move about my Island? BS! Not gonna happen O not-great and unwise Burt!

  5. Watching says:

    Fantastic news and can’t come soon enough. This document will play an important role in our lives for a long time if not forever. Eventually it will be used for most things in life not just travel. Read the tealeaves folks, we are in for a long hard rough ride for years to come and all I can say if you haven’t been vaccinated you won’t have a life.

  6. Bs says:

    He specifically said not for day to day . Just large gatherings. If you want to go Cup Match and events like that .

  7. trufth says:

    1st of all, this is DISCRIMINATION plain and simple.

    2nd, this is asking us to share our medical records. That’s illegal.

  8. If Bermudians doesn’t stand up to this sophisticated way of Dictatorship, They Deserve what they get, Mr. Premier it is one thing to have a Vaccine Passport to ensure those that are vaccinated are given probably ore relaxed restrictions, but I hope your government doesn’t intend on saying that Bermudians can not travel without it, Because this discussion has not even gotten to that stage in the U.S, and to say that you would want to see this by May is totally ridiculous.

  9. Portia says:

    Covid passports are a violation of the constitution. A business or event CANNOT deny access to someone because they haven’t taken the vaccine. An airline cannot deny you freedom to travel either, particularly as many Bermudians HAVE to seek cancer treatment or heart condition treatment overseas that isn’t available to Bermuda.

    If the PLP tries to roll this out, it will fail in court, especially considering that they have NO scientific backing to prove that an unvaccinated person is a threat to others. It’s the reverse actually.

    • Ringmaster says:

      @Portia. Get off social media and into the real world. Airlines can and do decide if you can fly on their planes. They are private companies and set the rules. Good luck with your violation of the Constitution.

      • Reality Check says:

        It is now abundantly clear that fully vaccinated people can be infected and can spread Covid.
        This is now a fact.
        So tell me again why a vaccine passport makes people safer somehow?

        • sandgrownan says:

          Is it?

          • LOL (original) says:

            They are still studying that issue right now. See GMA Fauci’s interview Good Morning America just this Saturday. He does not know but he said that people who are vaccinated are treated as asymptomatic carriers. So yes in fact they may still maybe carriers of the virus. Couple that with most media reports stating that you can still catch it, and spread it. That it only weakness your symptoms.

  10. 2020 Won says:

    Wow, the number of Bermudians on here who don’t seem to have the intellect to graduate from Trump University is astonishing. What would they do without Facebook and YouTube?

    • Unbelievable says:

      Exactly. Some of these people are so desperate to believe anything else. They are simply obstinate and contrarian for the sake of it. Childish and selfish if you ask me.

  11. Green Eyes says:

    So 1) Burts for independence
    2) COVID passports for Bermudians in order to travel or socialize …

    The list can go on but all I’m saying is he’s not making great choices and I for one refuse to get vaccinated. Especially knowing even being vaccinated you can still contact and pass AND being vaccinated you still have to adhere to the laws non vaccinated people have to follow. Makes no sense to me and I think we need to return to normal. This is a control and scare tactic and I’m going to continue going to work and home as normal.

  12. Red Pill says:

    No it’s not a simple way to a having a vaccine card. Please people do not agree to this.

  13. Red Pill says:

    This man is showing signs of being a globolist puppet. We are in big trouble here on this island.
