Cabinet To Meet, Press Conference On Sunday

April 10, 2021 | 10 Comments

The Cabinet will meet tomorrow [April 11] and there will be a press conference on Sunday evening, Premier David Burt said today.

This comes amidst a major coronavirus outbreak, with 116 new cases confirmed yesterday alone, 556 new cases confirmed so far this month, 871 currently active cases, and over 25 people hospitalized.

The figures are the highest — by far — since the pandemic began over a year ago. The 556 cases announced so far this month equates to around 31% of our total cases [1773] to date, and the 871 currently active cases equates to around 49% of all our cases to date, and about 1.36% of our total population, meaning over 1% of our residents are currently confirmed to have active Covid.

The Premier tweeted, “Today marks 2 weeks since the latest restrictions were announced. Health Bermuda will review the data & provide the Cabinet with recommendations for any further law changes that may need to be considered to prevent the continued household & workplace spread.

“The Cabinet will meet tomorrow, to discuss the recommendations from the Ministry of Health, and there will be a press conference Sunday evening following the meeting of the Cabinet.”

Update: The press conference will be at 7pm on Sunday, Bernews will carry the live stream.

  1. No government for me says:

    Lockdown people!

  2. Ringmaster says:

    Too late. The Government was warned weeks ago about the UK variant and didn’t put in place proper quarantine restrictions for travelers. What did they expect? Add in the illegal parties, with apparently no punishment, and the results are clear. Nearly 50% of the population have received at least one dose of vaccine so why should they suffer because so many refuse. I have sympathy for those who want the vaccine but haven’t yet got it, but the economic and mental hardships should more restrictions be imposed are too great. Of course, the elite don’t care as they are exempt from the restrictions they place on the rest of us.

      These Lockdowns don’t work every Country that locked down the rates went up. The only real lock down is for everyone to stay in their house for 30 days. No buying food no going anywhere understand.

  3. Tom says:

    dont take a rocket scientist to see what’s coming down the pass. Thank you to the selfish un disciplined careless pricks that think its ok to party and break the rules.

  6. Alaba says:

    Hopefully to give dispensation to those who have had the foresight to vaccinate.

    But this is the PLP, ignore the science. Likely Lockdown for everyone, they know better. Better than the CDC.

  7. QFF says:

    Why another meeting on a Sunday? It’s noble service or paid overtime ?

  8. Jedi says:

    Lockdown for the selfish who refuse to vaccinate only!
