The Health Ministry has confirmed six more deaths from Covid-19 in the Balearic Islands taking the total number of fatalities to 81.

1,320 people have coronavirus, including the 27 new cases reported on Monday, 121 patients are in the Intensive Care Unit and another 70 were discharged which means 531 people have completely recovered from the virus.

Javier Arranz, the Spokesperson for the Regional Coronavirus Management Committee, is convinced that the virus has already peaked in the Balearic Islands after only 22 new cases were detected on Sunday, representing a growth of only 1.7%. But he expects the figures to continue to see-saw as the pandemic wanes.

"I think all countries are hoping for a herd immunity, that's the only thing that will ever stop this spread," says our state epidemiologist in the North.

That is, a little over half of Spain's population must be infected with the corona virus!

Since you are locked in, this happens when you gently open the sluice: covid-19, covid-19, covid-19! ... cough, cough, cough! ... Ahhh, I feel like Boris.

But if you punish people who are out walking with a goat. Or the man who was out with his dog, but there was no dog!

Then you never achieve herd immunity and then the virus keeps us in a quarantine grip forever.

How long can you wait?

PS. Our North official strategy is to spread as slowly as possible, so that health care can catch up and take care of all those who are ill in a good way. Not through quarantine. Stay home if you feel the slightest ill. But, "herd immunity, that's the only thing that will ever stop this spread. I.e. +50 percent!"

Search: herd immunity Herd immunity (also called herd effect, community immunity, population immunity, or social immunity) is a form of indirect protection from infectious disease that occurs when a large percentage of a population has become immune to infection, whether through previous infections or vaccination, thereby providing a measure of protection for individuals who are not immune.
