Please can we have published the figures for deaths that are not attributed to covid-19 and then compare them to the previous annual average? EG. Pneumonia, influenza, heart failure etc. It would be good to have a reference point so that we may judge the net effect of covid-19.

Could someone explain what the difference between a Covid-19 "infection" is against an "active covid-19" case is? Also what is "monitored by UVAC" against being in ICU. It is very nice to see the daily figures, but some of us are not medics and do not always understand the acronyms relating to the various professions.

It is so sad to lose more islanders. Today it is reported that 2 have passed on. Could this continuing lower figure illustrate that Lockdown is working in Mallorca? I do hope so. Will we eventually see no virus deaths?.

Its always sad to hear of deaths. My sympathies go to the families. But you have to think about the health and wealth also of the wider population. 174 people have died in the Balearics out of 1.18 million people, stripping out people who have died in nursing homes that leaves 102 dead out of the none Nursing home population ie people working, commuting at school etc. This represents 0.008% of the population or 1 death to every 11,500 people. A very low risk. However of the 500,000 people who work in the Balearics, 400,000 have been ERTE'd. We know that tourism is 80% of GDP and 50% or 250,000 of all jobs are tourist related. With no tourist season this year, we have a scenario where a large percentage of the population will struggle to afford food, never mind rent. There will be mental health issues and deaths associated with poverty. When people talk about the cure being worse than the virus. Mallorca is the poster child.
