Isn't every death a Covid death? Or is that only here in the USA that they lie about the numbers. WHO, CDC, hospitals etc, have been faking the numbers. By a LOT!

Government and money are involved. so you know criminality is too.

You are still in the bravado, "I'm OK" mode. Stop worrying about your real estate and tourist ads. Tavira alone jumped by 30 cases this weekend! So your new case figure is wrong. you are playing with the figures.
The government needs to close the borders (even if the horse is out of the barn) and the bars must either be closed again or not allowed to serve inside. Masks and distance as before. The strict adherence by everyone this spring is when there were so few cases. Now we're spiking again for pure monetary reasons. Stop it now.
