Useless info. Majority of cases omricon. Delete the word covid from the report and see how differently it reads.

If you scale this up to the UK population that’s over 120,000 on an equivalent basis, scary but not surprising as Majorca as been far too lax. That’s good bye to next year’s tourism as well.

Primary Care numbers increased by 1399 despite 1916 new cases. Therefore 517 more people were COVID clear than new cases during the reporting period. This would seem to indicate a 'slowing' in overall cases despite the hysterical headline.

I agree Mark, just more scaremongering of cases of Omicron we all now know, science has proven as a mild cold. The bubble is bursting for the media on covid. Even Sky news is going with a more Positive news feed going into 2022 with scientist saying it might be soon in the near future to live with covid and go about our day. And stop trying to eradicate the impossible.

And how many people died? This sort of news is useless if it is not put into perspective. It is like saying there have been 30 car accidents, without mentioning any details. This is the kind of news nobody needs nor wants and adds to the populist scaremongering by the press.
