    According to the Premier, there is a reluctance in the black community to get vaccinated. The vast majority of people in hospital and intensive care are not vaccinated. One could work out that most of those in hospital are non vaccinated and black. Sad that such a segment of the population is the greatest risk

  2. Just sad says:

    2 more deaths that didn’t need to happen. How many more deaths before the unvaccinated get their jabs? More I fear and that’s just sad!!!

    Please get vaccinated. Vaccinated is safety.

    If you are in ICU, a nurse told me that they are desperate for breath, but each time they do breathe its like gargling with engine oil, its a terrible way to go.

    “Sadly, Bermuda has suffered two more coronavirus related deaths”

    Yes, it is sad. But not unexpected. It is a result of our policy of preferring money over lives and not following the rules we have.

  5. So sad says:

    Why would someone want to risk leaving this precious earth and their loved ones instead of taking a FDA approved vaccine that could prevent you from getting very sick or dying. I just don’t get it. It’s just so very sad to hear about all these preventable deaths.

    • Just Saying says:

      Letting the virus into our country and letting it run rampant around our country was much more preventable. Bermuda had zero new cases in early July!

      It’s not okay to intentionally expose people to a virus and then try to make them feel bad for not taking a brand new vaccine, which is not yet approved for children under 12 by the way, unlike other vaccines!

      • sandgrownan says:

        More unhinged anti-vax nonsense. It never gets old?

        Kind of like the unvaccinated.

        Are you, by chance, a flat earther or moon-landing denier? Because that’s the level you are at.

      • Loquat tree says:

        There are many vaccines that cannot be given to young children and some that are given in smaller doses. The testing for younger children is underway and as for all other vaccines, testing is carried out first on healthy adults, before those groups with less resistance.

        I don’t think most people are trying to make unvaccinated people feel bad, rather they cannot understand the failure of so many people to evaluate the relative risks of each choice, ask their doctor for advice and then make their choice.
        Also why so many ignore the main teaching and world leading hospitals-which they unfailingly trust for all major surgeries and medical treatments, and rather accept marginal ‘doctors’ or quasi scientists, many of whom quote discredited scientific papers and un-factual ‘facts’ which a quick google or fact-check will be shown to be completely false!

        The mind boggles, when the alternative is a disease that can be incredibly painful, cause long lasting serious health complications and in quite a few local cases, lead to a painful and untimely death. It is also causing the entire community a more lengthy and painful path through the pandemic.
