Covid-19 Press Conference On Thursday

May 4, 2021

While they are normally held on Tuesdays, this week the Government’s Covid-19 update video press conference will take place on Thursday, May 6th.

Although the video press conference is on Thursday, we expect, not know, that we will get an update with test results via press release later today, so will likely update with that information tonight.

Thursday is May 6th, and Premier David Burt has previously advised that the “Government will provide full details on the supervised quarantine on May 6th,” so we can expect to get that information during Thursday’s video event.

Update 5.08pm: The Premier tweeted, “Our next press conference will be held this Thursday, May 6th at 5:30pm. I will be joined by the Min. of Health & the Min. of National Security as we provide updates on our Covid-19 status & changes to regulations as the Government continues to move Bermuda beyond the pandemic.”

    If alphabet shopping is to continue can someone ask what scientific data they are using to support this measure. It might have made sense last year due to the lack of data, but why now?
    Jamaica is restricting travelers from Trinidad and Tobago because of the rising incidence of the Brazilian variant there. Has Bermuda taken steps by checking on where people entering Bermuda have visited in the last 14 days, or is “I’m arriving from New York” sufficient?

      It’s for contact tracing ringmaster

    Excellent! Now I have more time to groom these whiskers for the camera.

    Story today from The Hill:
    BioNTech founders predict pandemic will spread for at least another year

    The founders of BioNTech, the German biotechnology company that developed a prominent coronavirus vaccine with Pfizer, are predicting that the pandemic will likely continue into 2022 as new waves of the infection surge in countries with limited vaccine supplies.

    Premier Burt: What are the Government metrics to get back to normal?

      This isn’t new news.

      I think, numpty nuts, you have answered your own question. I’m not a fan of Burt, the issue in Bermuda is this: We have amply supply of the vaccine (thanks to the UK) but, paradoxically, we have an ample supply of anti-vax idiots.

      So, in order to return to a normal, we need the idiots to get vaccinated.

      • LOL - the real one says:

        You poor thing. You sink to the lowest level possible with uneducated insults that poorly reflect on your lack of basic critical thinking skills. The idiots such as yourself need a shot of those skills. This is going to go on, and on…

        Premier Burt, the first person in Bermuda to be vaccinated, still became infected and was quarantined. NO metrics have been stated as to when Bermuda will return to normal because our government is clueless, but will never admit to that obvious fact.

        UK Daily Mail – ALL over-50s will get a THIRD Covid jab before winter: BOOSTER shots will be given alongside flu vaccinations – with trials under way now to decide whether to use an extra dose of existing vaccines or new ones adapted to fight variants

        Bloomberg – World’s Most Vaccinated Nation Reintroduces Curbs as Cases SURGE
        Seychelles, which has fully vaccinated more of its population against Covid-19 than any other country, has closed schools and canceled sporting activities for two weeks as infections surge.

        To date 62.2% of its eligible population is fully vaccinated, according to the Bloomberg Vaccine Tracker. That compares with 55.9% for Israel, the next most vaccinated nation.

        And so forth…

  4. Realistic Regulations says:

    The only people who are punished by this no mixing of families are the few people following the rules. The drug dealers sit in groups, people are still at each other’s houses, and list goes on. Sure not after 8pm you say, no they just stay at the party till 5am. In the meantime, legitimate business are closed or are soon going to be closed for good!!!

  5. Anxious worker says:

    If you are fully vaccinated, when will you be allowed to work different care facilities.
