Soller chatter is always interesting as long as new subjects are discussed. This week the scientists among us have been trying to make sense of the the Covid numbers in Majorca. The fact that the more people tested will give an upturn in numbers was understood by all. The discussion point was ‘when do we have to start worrying about this’? If many people get the bug and recover, then the comparison is the same as any other flu like bug. The Soller chatterers decided that the worries begin when the hospital admissions gather pace. That is the when it tips over to being more than ‘managed at home’ flu. R numbers, blaming the young for partying and the old for their Sunday family lunches was now lost off the radar. It’s all about those unfortunately sick enough to be in hospital which will turn the way we think and behave.
