OMG!!!! 1 person died!!! Would be nice to know how many people died of "normal" causes, as this sort of "news" has no bearing, if you cannot relate it to real life.

What is also rather concerning is the suicide rates. I mentioned this from quite early on in the lock down period. There seems to be no or very little attention to the ever increasing suicide rates. In many countries the suicides deaths are a multitude of the corona related deaths. Yet no politician seems to care about that.
