Covid vaccination centre on wheels.

Covid vaccination centre on wheels.

16-11-2021

A study by the Balearic Ministry for Health says that 50 percent of those people who are still unvaccinated are foreigners.

The Balearic government has called for everyone to get the jab so that we will be able to enjoy a "normal festive season."

The number of Covid cases has been gradually increasing in the Balearics over recent days and the Balearic government has blamed those who are refusing to get the vaccine.

Of the 177 cases reported on Tuesday, there are 116 in Mallorca, 42 in Minorca, 18 in Ibiza and one in Formentera. The 74 cases reported on Monday were Mallorca 72, Minorca two. This does give an indication as to the lack of testing on Sundays.

The daily positivity test rate is 5.37% for the 177 cases. It was 4.11% for Monday's 74 cases and 6.03% last Friday.

The 14-day cumulative incidence in the Balearics has risen from 114.0 on Monday to 120.3; it was 102.3 on Friday. In Mallorca, it is up from 104.1 on Monday to 110.6; Minorca, up from 222.7 to 234.2; Ibiza, up from 108.0 to 110.0; Formentera, 75.6 (the same as Monday). The seven-day cumulative incidence in the Balearics is up to 74.69 from 68.71 on Monday.

Peter 40m is 0.5 percent of the worlds population, that better than the current death rate of 2-3% with many vaccinated. Math done.

Everyone will get Covid-19 as some point, just like we have all had colds and flus. The point of the vaccine is to lower the severity of the virus in various age groups should you catch it and lessen the chances of you dying from it. No one is pretending it's a miracle cure but no countries medical infrastructure is geared up for any pandemic let alone something as deadly - and it is - because if we all are unvaccinated then the projected death rate is 40,000,000. Do the math people.

@James, with the imbecile comment. It's easy to throw silly names around but alot harder to explain why I'm wrong. If 100% of a population was vaccinated we would still have cases rising and people in filling hospitals. It's still the elderly dying of covid exactly like before the vaccine in fact countries are in a worse state now this winter than last. And we didn't have the vaccine. We opened up. It's a virus it will spread regardless. If you believe in the vaccine then you should be o.k. And all the haters of the unvaccinated wishing death upon them or wanting them refused treatment. Well there the ones taking the risk from this deadly killer of 0.4% so maybe you'll get what you want. It will eradicate these evil and selfish people from the world.:)

Let's face it the vaccines don't work that well. So we need to stop pretending they do. And blaming others for it.

Another James here, I think James and James are talking rot. Especially the first James. As for the German/Jew reference. What an imbicile.

To the last James: your jew reference seems rather misplaced and dumb, actually. There is undisputed evidence that all over Europe, the migrant communities have much lower vaccination rates, due to illiteracy, religion or peer pressure. Same as native religious communities. That does not make them scape goats, it is just factual.

@James. I cannot understand this demonisation of the unvaccinated and this push for medical aparthied. Its not the unvaccinated peoples fault. The world and its governments just cannot admit that the vaccine isn't really that good and are looking for a scape goat. Somebody explain to me that Ireland who have 93% of there adult population fully vaccinated, covid passports for everything. Yet cases are crazy and over half the people in hospitals are fully vaccinated. So only 7% of there population is not vaccinated of which the demographics of that 7% are probably in younger age groups who are very unlikely to be hospitalised anyway with covid. So I wouldn't say the unvaccinated are to blame.i would say its the vaccinated spreading it around with no symptoms, because if you had bad symptoms you would be home in bed. People and governments need something or somebody to blame when things don't quite turn out as planned. Like the Germans blaming the Jews.

Just as an aside to the editor. It would be useful if we could sign into our accounts to be able to add a user name to differentiate ourselves from each other. We will soon run out of first names.

Hi James, another James here. There is a very large community in the Baleares of “residents” yet “foreigners” who are originally from various parts of North Africa. There is a very strong resistance to Vaccines among these groups as there is in many other counties with large immigrant communities. This is a matter of choice but it is useful to governments to group all “foreigners” together as one. It’s more politically correct.

Have the government considered of that 50% some could of been vaccinated in there home countries. U.K., Germany, Sweden. But there's is no record as its private information and nobody's business what your vaccination status is.
