For the past few days, Bermuda has been ranked number one by the New York Times and Worldometers for Covid-19 cases per capita, and unfortunately, the statistics compiled by the two websites have gotten even worse, as the island has now moved up to the top 6 as far as deaths per capita over the past week.
The island is dealing with a major Covid outbreak, with over 1500 currently active cases, and unfortunately there have been ten Covid related deaths announced since August 30, 2020, and as many point out, these are not just statistics, they are people, with many families mourning their loved ones.
The island is ranked third by the New York Times in deaths per 100,000 over the past seven days, and the latest data from Worldometers also ranks the island sixth in deaths per million over the last seven days, which is an increase from the 18th place they had us in before the weekend.
The New York Times said, “This table is sorted by places with the most cases per 100,000 residents in the last seven days. Charts show change in daily averages and are each on their own scale. Select a table header to sort by another metric.”
