Bermuda’s PAHO country status was upgraded this week to Sporadic Cases.
Bermuda’s current WHO country status is “Community Transmission”. Bermuda’s WHO country status is due to be changed to “Sporadic Cases” on 21 June 2021, provided that the epidemiological situation continues to meet the criteria i.e. that detected cases remain imported, or sporadic or linked to imported/sporadic cases, and there are no clear signals of further locally acquired transmission.
Each of us has a role to play in stopping the spread of the coronavirus. Follow Public Health guidelines, wear a mask, practice good hand hygiene, maintain physical distance and download the WeHealth Bermuda app. Do the research, talk with your doctor and make an informed decision about getting the COVID-19 vaccine. There is a wealth of information about the vaccines online at gov.bm.
