4 NEW POSITIVE CORONAVIRUS CASES RECORDED TODAY


There were 1427 test results received by the Ministry of Health since the last update and four were positive for COVID-19.  Two of the new cases are classified as imported. One of the new imported cases is a non-resident who arrived on DL 584 from Atlanta on 4 January 2021, and tested positive on day four. The other new imported case is a resident who arrived on DL 617 from New York on 8 January 2021, and tested positive on their arrival test.

The remaining two new cases are classified as local transmission with known contact as they are associated with known cases.

Additionally, since the last update, three cases have recovered.

There are 90 active cases, of which;
•        82 are under public health monitoring and
•        8 are in hospital with 1 in critical care;
Since March 2020, Bermuda has recorded 656 total confirmed cases of COVID-19; out of those, 554 persons have recovered, and 12 persons have sadly succumbed to COVID-19.
The mean age of all confirmed positive cases is 43 years (median: 40 years), and the age range is less than 1 year to greater than 100 years.

The mean age of all currently active cases is 43 years (median: 43 years), and the age range is less than 10 years (age group: 5-9 years) to greater than 80 years (age group: 80-100 years).

The mean age of all currently hospitalized cases is 57 years (median: 54 years), and the age range is less than 30 years (age group: 20-29 years) to greater than 80 years (age group: 80-100 years).

The mean age of all deceased cases is 75 years (median: 77 years), and the age range is less than 60 years (age group: 50-59 years) to greater than 80 years (age group: 80-100 years).

The source of all cases is as follows:

•        174 are Imported
•        443 are classified as local transmission of which:
•        385 are Local transmission with known contact/source and
•        58 are Local transmission with an unknown contact/source
•        39 are Under Investigation
As investigations proceed, transmission categories may change.  Today’s update has 8 cases moving from under investigation to local transmission with unknown contact/source.

The seven-day average of our real time reproduction number is less than 1 (0.63), and Bermuda’s current country status remains “Clusters of Cases”.

The first doses of the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine were administered today, and the Ministry of Health has received numerous calls from people trying to register. Unfortunately, this did cause a slight delay in the team being able to respond to all of the calls.

Minister of Health, the Hon Kim N Wilson explained: “We apologize for the delays being experienced as persons try to get through to the vaccine registration number. Our team is working extremely hard to answer as many calls as possible, and we appreciate your patience. We are placing more resources in this area to accommodate the demand – a demand which is most welcome.”

“We want to vaccinate as many people as possible so that we can help protect them, their loved ones and, also, help the Island to achieve herd immunity. According to most experts, if we are able to vaccinate 60 - 70% of the population, we can halt the transmission and spread of the virus.”

If you are interested in registering for the vaccine, fill out the convenient on-line form at https://forms.gov.bm/covidvaccine.

For more information on the COVID-19 vaccination programme, and the priority scheduling for the first batch of the vaccine, please visit www.gov.bm/vaccines.
