CDC gets Bermuda’s Covid-19 status wrong


The Bermuda Government took steps last night to correct an erroneous classification of the island’s Covid-19 risk status by the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Government said that the CDC has classified Bermuda’s Covid-19 risk status as “Level 3 — High”.

A government spokesman said: “According to the World Health Organisation, Bermuda only has sporadic cases. This is the lowest WHO classification outside of no Covid-19 cases.”

The spokesman added: “The Government has contacted the US Consulate in Bermuda to communicate its concern with this listing that does not match the reality on the island.

“Bermuda has one of the most stringent testing regimes in the world and we have worked extremely hard to successfully control the coronavirus on our shores.”
