Dr Carika Weldon Named In Queen’s Birthday List


Dr. Carika Weldon has been recognized for her services to the Covid-19 Pandemic Response in Bermuda, receiving a Queen’s Certificate & Badge of Honour in the Queen’s 2020 Birthday Honours List.

The information from the Government said, “Dr. Weldon returned to Bermuda from the UK to devise a testing regime for Bermuda to increase testing capacity as part of the COVID-19 pandemic response. She has done so at a great sacrifice to her existing work in Oxford. She led the development of the Government’s Molecular Diagnostic Lab and has dramatically increased the island’s testing capacity, a critical element in successfully controlling the spread of COVID-19 on the island.”
