Covid-19: no new cases, no one in hospital

No new coronavirus cases were recorded yesterday, the health ministry said last night.

A total of 1,193 test results came back to the ministry and all were clear.

The number of infections has also dropped and no one is hospitalised with Covid-19.

There are eight active infections, down from nine in the last update and the one hospitalised case has been discharged.

The active cases are being monitored by public health officials.

Kim Wilson, the health minister, said: “Covid-19 cases are down in Bermuda, thanks in part to our aggressive testing and vaccine programme.

“As well, the United States Centres for Disease Control today upgraded Bermuda’s Covid-19 risk rating.

“Bermuda is now classed as Level 2, moderate, up from Level 4, very high, in a travel advisory on the organisation’s website.”

She warned: “However, we must continue to be vigilant to avoid any additional outbreaks.”

The seven-day average of the real-time reproduction number is less than 1.

Bermuda’s World Health Organisation country status remained at “community transmission.”

Mr Wilson added that people who were homebound and wanted vaccination, a team from the Bermuda College clinic could administer the AstraZeneca vaccines in people homes.

She added: “They will also visit those homebound persons requiring second doses up to June 30.”

To organise a home visit, contact the hotline at 444-2498 and select option #2, or e-mail vaccine@gov.bm
