“Covid-19 cases are down in Bermuda, thanks in part to our aggressive testing and vaccine programme. As well, the United States Centres for Disease Control today upgraded Bermuda’s Covid-19 risk rating,” said Minister of Health, Kim Wilson.

“Bermuda is now classed as Level 2, moderate, up from Level 4, very high in a travel advisory on the organisation’s website. However, we must  continue to be vigilant to avoid any additional outbreaks.”

“Each of us has a role to play in stopping the spread of the coronavirus. Follow Public Health guidelines, wear a mask, practice good hand hygiene, maintain physical distance and download the WeHealthBermuda app. Do the research, talk with your doctor and make an informed decision about getting the Covid-19 vaccine.”

    Still no mention of the purported BA Indian variant case. Were they lying in court, or are these stats inaccurate? It has to be one or the other.
    How convenient for them that there is no press conference this week.

    • Answer says:

      I dont believe anyone said it came in on BA. That variant is in many countries

  2. Warrior says:

    Check Canadian news, Indian Variant is now in Canada.

    Ok…just a lil math here…2497 confirmed cases, of which 33 have supposedly died of SARS-COV2. That’s a death rate of 1.32%.. 1%?

    I was under the impression through the media,foreign and local,that this thing was like the Black plague or something. What am I missing here? Could some sane, rational person fill me in? smh..
