Bermuda could face “another round” of the Covid-19 pandemic and potentially a tough winter, the Premier warned last night.

Mr Burt told a virtual Bermuda Captive Conference: “I happen to believe that we are going to have another round of the pandemic before we come out of it.

“I don't think it is going to be a pretty winter.

“I still think we are going to have a challenge, and that's the reason why the Government is so firm that we need to have very, very strict border policies as we go forward to make sure that we can maintain our domestic economy.”

The conference was held on a virtual basis for the second year in a row because of the health crisis.
