There are now 1,069 people infected with coronavirus in the Balearic Islands, 69 more than on Monday.

85 patients remain in the ICU, 42 have died and 111 have been discharged, according to the lates figures from the Ministry of Health.

Dr. Javier Arranz, spokesperson for the Autonomous Committee of Coronavirus warned on Monday that the numbers would jump up and down over the next few weeks but is still confident that overall the downward trend will continue and there will be fewer diagnosis in the Balearic Islands.

“We are probably already entering the maximum number of new cases, which will evolve with decreases and small increases. What we expect is that during this week the increases will be small and the trend is to go down and that would allow us to be optimistic that this famous curve could enter a decline this week,” said Arranz.

Bloody Truth / Hace 7 months

Iceland has a population of 364,134 people and, strictly speaking, mathematically has a shorter way to go in order to be able to map the entire population.

So far, Iceland has tested 17,904 people, of which 1,135 tested positive. Two people have died from covid-19: a tourist and an Icelander.

A look at Iceland's special corona database, which is open to the public, shows that 90 percent of the corona cases are in Greater Reykjavik and two southern Iceland regions.

If this is correct (the most thorough measurement in the world of the spread of the Corona virus is found in Iceland), this means that the number of infected percentages is 1,135 / 17,904 = 6.34 percent.

Transferred from Iceland's population to Spain's population would mean: 6.34 percent x 46.66 million = 2 958 000 infected in Covid-19 in Spain.

Madness (the politicians and doctors in Spain).

PS. Yesterday I wrote that there is a doubling of the number of dead in Italy in just over 3 days. In Spain it is a doubling of 2.5 days!

I hate to be pedantic, but hopefully this will apply more and more in the future. You say "There are now 1,069 people infected with coronavirus in the Balearic Islands, 69 more than on Monday." but I believe that is the total number of (confirmed?) cases on the Balearic Islands. The number of people currently infected is that number, minus the number who have died, minus the number who have recovered. As the recovered numbers increase, the difference will become greater!
