    NO LOCKDOWN 4 weeks ago

    Saturday 13th March figures for Coronavirus :
    Infected 10, Recovered 8, Deaths 0.

    Total infections over entire period since the beginning 36,662; Total recoveries since the beginning 34,257; Total deaths since the beginnig 1,510.
    Such figures are not alarming and do not warrant another lockdown. Is the threat of a further lockdown due to external political pressure, or aimed at increasing media sales, or what? The latest figures do not warrant it.
