Number of active Covid cases continues to fall
The number of active Covid-19 cases has dropped by almost 700 in less than a month, new figures released last night show.
Latest figures show that there were just six new cases out of 1,229 test results meaning the island now has 208 active cases. At the peak of the outbreak on April 19 there were 904 active cases.
Last night Kim Wilson, the health minister, said the mobile vaccination programme would move to TN Tatem Middle School in Warwick today from 10am to 2pm, and the same hours at Victor Scott Primary School in Pembroke on Sunday.
Doctors will be available on site to field questions, and a minibus service will be available to take people to and from their homes.
Ms Wilson said that anyone wishing to use the minibus should call 533-5903 between 10am and 1.30pm.
According to the latest figures, there are currently 11 people in hospital with three in intensive care.
Of the new cases, four are classed as local transmission with a known contact. Two were found in residents with no known contacts or recent travel history and are under investigation.
Forty people have recovered and the island’s death toll remains at 31.
In total, Bermuda has had 2,461 active cases since the pandemic started. Of those, 298 came from overseas and 1,951 are local – 1,552 of them with known contacts, 399 with unknown contacts, and 212 are under investigation.
Details on age distribution and transmission categories are available here.
The seven-day average of Bermuda’s real-time reproduction number now stands at 0.55, and the island’s country status remains at “community transmission”.
