Thanks for giving us the age of the deceased. 88 a ripe old age, 6yrs longer than the average life expectancy. The more details you can give us the better, surely it is good to provide us with more detailed data? Perhaps it will encourage the unvaccinated to get vaccinated if they see that there are a lot of those aged less than 65 dying. Perhaps you could provide us with this information now please. Also, why do you use August as your benchmark regarding the levels of new cases. What I'm saying is if cases drop below the August level will you report it as a record low?

Presumably being second highest for foreign tourists in October results in record Covid numbers in November?

88 year old woman has died, and ICU and hospital admissions are down. So explain the importance of the cases???
