Premier: Dr Weldon “Has Gone Above & Beyond”

January 15, 2022 | 19 Comments

“There is no way that I or Bermuda can thank Dr Weldon enough for her contribution to our fight against the Coronavirus,” Premier David Burt said, adding she has gone “above and beyond.”

The Premier was responding to criticism on Twitter following the most recent Covid press conference, with some people taking umbrage about comments made in relation to Dr Carika Weldon’s service and the impact of her resignation.

Dr Weldon, the Government’s Science Advisor & MDL Laboratory Director, has resigned from the position, with her last day to be on January 31, 2022.

The Premier — who is currently abroad attending a conference — tweeted, “Good Evening, I haven’t seen the full press conference however, there is no way that I or Bermuda can thank Dr Weldon enough for her contribution to our fight against the Coronavirus. She has gone above and beyond, & as I said on Monday I’m sure her service to our island will not end on January 31.”covid-19 divider 1

      • question says:

        Never here, always missing, which is all part of why things are out of control.

  2. sandgrownan says:

    Can you blame her for resigning? Having to put up with these morons and an inept and lazy civil service.

    • trufth says:

      I can’t believe she lasted this long.

      And Burt, ummm errrr, ahh….. your comment is too little too late. Your support of Dr. Weldon was needed while you all were off holidaying. You didn’t support her then, why all the sudden do you think she’s great now? Saving face for the bitterness of your Minister of Health??

    • Attack attack says:

      Lazy Civil servants? You looking in the mirror again?

      • Sandgrownan says:

        Look we have more than we need, we get poor service, ergo they are not fully utilized. Lazy.
