“Bermuda remains among the top ten countries in the world for vaccinations administered relative to population size.”
This from Premier David Burt on the latest stats recorded by ourworldindata.org.
Speaking at the latest COVID briefing on Tuesday (Feb 23), the Premier said: “We are getting closer to our goal of having 19,000 persons fully immunized by March 31st.”
To date, 17,073 doses have been administered.
“What is most important is that the number of doses administered increased this week by 24 percent, which demonstrates that the move to the Bermuda College has had its intended effect of increasing the pace of our vaccination program,” said Mr Burt.
“While this is very welcomed news, it is vital for all Bermudians to understand that this is not a time to let your guard down.
“We have all worked hard to put our country in a place where curfew can be removed, and measures can be relaxed. Let us not undo that hard work by neglecting our collective responsibility to adhere to the measures still in place.
