No new cases of Covid-19 were reported today.

There were 1,257 test results received by the Ministry of Health since the last update.

Kim Wilson, the Minister of Health, welcomed the news following the island’s recent outbreak of cases but warned the public not to become complacent.

She said: "Today's report of no new positive cases among the 1,257 test results received is certainly very good news and it shows that our recently-implemented health measures are having the desired effect.

“However, we must not grow lax or complacent in light of this news, we still have 223 active cases.

“We still must wear our masks. We still must practise physical distancing. We still must keep our social bubbles small.”

A total of 30 cases have recovered since the last update, the first time the number of active cases has dropped since November 19 when there were 17 active cases.

Bermuda has had 553 confirmed cases of the coronavirus overall.

Of the 223 active cases, 221 are under public health monitoring and two are in hospital, down from four on Saturday. None are in critical care.

A total of 321 people have recovered from the virus and nine people with Covid-19 have died.

The mean age of all confirmed cases is 43, the median age is 39, and the age range is from an infant to over 100.

The mean age of all active cases is 37 and the median age is 32.

Of all cases, 148 came to Bermuda from overseas and 327 were transmitted on the island. Of those, 305 had a known contact or source and the contact or source of 22 was unknown.

Another 78 cases are under investigation.

The Government’s update today included three cases that moved from “under investigation” to on-island transmission with a known contact or source.

The seven-day average of our real time reproduction number is 0.7 and Bermuda’s country status is “clusters of cases”.
