A seventh death from Covid-19 was announced by the Ministry of Health today.

Kim Wilson, the health minister, said: “On behalf of my entire team at the Ministry of Health, I want to extend my sincere condolences to the family and friends of this individual.

“This death, falling on the first day of the end of sheltering in place, is an agonising reminder to us of the seriousness of this virus and, as such, I urge the entire community to please be mindful of your movements and interactions in the coming weeks — both of which should be very limited.”

The health ministry said the victim would not be identified.

All 157 of the latest Covid-19 test results received by the ministry were clear.

Bermuda has had 114 confirmed cases, 51 of which have recovered and 40 people are being monitored by public health officials.

There are 56 active cases, with 16 people aged between 57 and 91 in hospital.

The average age of all Covid-19 cases is 60 and the ages range from 18 to 95.
