  1. How close is Madeira to going into lockdown again ? at least then there was no stupid time consuming restrictions like now it was simple stay at home go out for food shopping and excise.

  2. It’s the seasonal flu. The PCR test can’t make the difference from flu from Covid. That’s why WHO recommends to drop the PCR tests by end of this year.

    All this fuss is useless. The governments just wants to control people.

      • Exactly. The world hasn’t stopped before for normal flu, even if it’s as “deadly” as Covid. In Madeira, only 0,03% of a population of 250 000 people have died of Covid. That’s flu level mortality.

        It’s normal that old people with other health issues die. Of course, it’s sad, but that’s life. There’s no reason to panic about it.

  3. 103 cases in a day ! you could compare it to the UK (pop70 million) 40.000 new cases a day.
    Or with greater Tokyo in Japan (pop 38 million ) very worried because they have had 100 new cases in the last week !!!!!

    How do they do it ? well they never shake hands/ hug/ kiss on cheek, anyone they are not married to ! They always bow at a social distance and always normally wear masks (without being told ) if they suspect there is any chance they have an infection.
    Yes they may shake hands with foreigners out of politness, but I suspect they always go and wash their hands with disnfectant soap, as soon as possible. That and a healthy diet ( virtually sugar free) is why they live 10 years longer than UK citizens.
    They also closed the borders at the start to all non Japanese, opened last week to business people only ( If I assume fully jabbed and tested)

    • That’s an anti-parasitic treatment providing no defence against a VIRUS. Stuff claiming that ivermectin is beneficial for treating and preventing COVID-19 are not backed by credible scientific evidence.

  4. Some people now say that it is difficult to differentiate between flu and covid.
    So that means that in the last years the flu was as much life treathening as covid.
    Therefore, let’s wear masks, use alcohol gel or soap, get flu AND covid vaccins, lockdown when necessary, social distancing when possible.
    Do that against – choose – the flue, covid, or both.
    What more is there to discuss?
