250 tests result no new COVID-19 cases in Bermuda, 9 February

250 tests result no new COVID-19 cases in Bermuda, 9 February

The Ministry of Health received 250 test results since the last update, and none were positive for COVID-19.
Additionally, since the last update, there were two recoveries.

There are currently nine active cases, of which;

• Six are under public health monitoring and;

• Three are in hospital with none in critical care.

Since March 2020, Bermuda has recorded 694 total confirmed cases of COVID-19; out of those, 673 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 ages range from less than one year to greater than 100 years.

The mean age of all currently active cases is 52 years (median: 41 years), and the ages range from less than 30 years (age group: 20-29 years) to greater than 70 years (age group: 70-79 years).

To protect privacy and confidentiality, age information will not be provided on the hospitalized cases.

The mean age of all deceased cases is 75 years (median: 77 years), and the ages range from 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:

· 201 are imported

· 491 are classified as local transmission of which:

· 401 are local transmission with known contact/source and

· 90 are local transmission with an unknown contact/source

· 2 are under investigation

Of the over 160,000 test results reported, the mean age of all persons tested is 43 years (median: 42 years), and the ages range from less than one year to greater than 100 years.

Additionally, during the week of 31 January to 6 February, 403 saliva screening tests were conducted (all negative). Therefore, as of 6 February 2021, results have been received for 4870 saliva screenings. The mean age of all persons screened is 59 years (median: 59 years), and the ages range from less than 10 years to greater than 100 years.

The seven-day average of our real time reproduction number is less than one, and Bermuda’s current country status remains “Sporadic Cases”.

While I am encouraged by the reduction in positive COVID cases, I strongly advise everyone to continue to be vigilant and follow the guidelines. People may have the perception that there is no coronavirus in Bermuda. That is not the case. We do have two cases currently under investigation where we cannot identify the source.
