It would be so nice if we can have some perspective in these figures. I.e., the 5 people that died, what were their ages? How many people would have died anyway in the same period, looking back over the years. What is published here has hardly any meaning. How many people´s lives did the COVID-19 actually save? As what is the drop in fatal car accidents? Or how many people did not die of air polution and fine dust? If you take it in a world wide bigger picture: 5 million die of airpolution, 1,25 million in road accidents......280.000 died of Covid-19 so far.
