1. (U) The Government of Bermuda (GOB) has reported six new
confirmed cases of H1N1 on the Island in October and one in late
September, bringing the total number of laboratory-confirmed
cases from 10 (REFTEL) to 16 in Bermuda as of October 31.
According to the Department of Health's website, there have been
slightly more cases among males, and the majority of cases are
aged 25-64 (six cases aged 26-44 and five cases aged 45-64, 7
females and 9 males). There have been no deaths on the Island
attributed to the virus.

2. (SBU) Minister of Health Walter Roban told the Consul
General on October 26 that the GOB had budgeted funds to pay the
UK for up to 50,000 doses of the H1N1 vaccine, and the UK had
agreed to pouch the vaccine when it became available and Bermuda
requested. Meanwhile, the GOB is offering regular flu shots
throughout the Island.
