“This is nonsense!”

That was the response from Premier David Burt on Twitter to Buzz Cafe’s bid to open as an online grocery store.

Premier Burt tweeted: “I’ve just received this forward from @BuzzCafeBermuda.

“This is nonsense! Buzz is licenced as a restaurant, restaurants are closed for all services! Buzz will not open as a grocery store on Thursday.

“I have alerted Min Caines & Commissioner Corbishley.”

In another tweet, he added: “It is clear people do not understand how serious this situation is. Everyone if you do not have to go outside, STAY INSIDE.

“If you have to go out, wear a face covering. This virus has caused death around the world, and we do not want the same here. @BuzzCafeBermuda. COOL OUT!

“Please forgive my tone & frustration, but I cannot express how serious COVID-19 is,” the Premier tweeted. “There are seniors in hospital, there are cases in Bermuda where we are still investigating the source. It is important that we take this seriously and stay home!”

The Premier also tweeted: “This is serious. We have people in the hospital, because people are NOT taking Covid-19 seriously! I am angry because we all have to work together to save lives & people are being selfish. I’m not trying to attend funerals that don’t need to happen. Guys need to stay home!”

At last check, the total number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 was 37, with no new cases reported on Sunday.

Six people with the virus are in hospital in stable condition.
