Bermuda has recorded another Covid-19 death, health officials said last night.

The news brought the death toll from the coronavirus to 123.

The figures came four days after the island marked another fatality from Covid-19.

Health officials added that there were 107 positive cases recorded from 6,642 test results that came back since the update last Thursday — a test positivity rate of 1.6 per cent.

There were 113 recoveries since the last update.

Kim Wilson, the health minister, said: “My heartfelt condolences go out to the loved ones of the deceased at this difficult time.”

There are 204 active cases and 199 were being monitored by health officials.

There are five people in hospital, but none in intensive care.

A total of 21 of the new cases came in from overseas, with 86 listed as on-island transmissions or as under investigation.

There were 211 active cases at the last update, with nine people being treated in hospital and none in intensive care.

The ministry said that since March 2020, Bermuda had recorded 11,423 coronavirus infections and 11,096 people had recovered.

Ms Wilson added: “Recently, there have been outbreaks in social settings, as there is an increase in social mixing at bars, restaurants and parties.

“Residents are attending gatherings where simple things like sanitising hands, wearing a mask and physically distancing are not being done adequately.

“We all want this pandemic to be over, but at the same time we must adjust our behaviour to reduce the opportunity of getting infected.”

Ms Wilson said: “It is essential that you are aware of high-risk settings and can avoid exposure to the coronavirus. It is also essential to get tested or test yourself to know your status before going to social settings.

“The Covid-19 vaccine is still available to anyone who wants it. It is safe and highly effective in preventing severe illness and saving lives.

“We need to be careful, the pandemic is not over, and the Omicron variant is still circulating in our community. Everyone must be responsible and take action to stay safe.”
