The various recommendations on wearing masks should be supplemented with the condition of God's willingness to aid that protection.
Surely if it were God's will, then only the Infidel would be afflicted?

Another Christian evangelical sect (just 30kms from me) has a major outbreak. 40 positive cases in the first testing round....
Nor for no reason do some rationalists qualify christianity as a death cult.

There's a hadith about that as well. Allah sends plagues as a punishment for the unbelievers and as a blessing for the believers. It's a blessing for the believers because plagues open up the great opportunity for any believer to die as a martyr without having to go to war. Every muslim who dies from an infectious disease will receive the awards of martyrs in Paradise (including the 72 virgins and so on).

So, don't hesitate. Get yourself infected, get a bed in the icu, suffocate from your own blood in your lungs and you'll have a great time in the afterlife. Wait, no, it only works when dying in spite of trying not to get infected. Bummer.

It's like the good old days in here - bashing the silly nonsense of the believers.

I'm actually quite nostalgic.

It's true that in some cases their stats may not be publicly available, and it's the government that acts as gatekeeper to those stats. But that would be for Scot to prove. And as we know, he doesn't prove anything. It's all feelings for him.
Dutch statistics are the best statistics. The Dutch Ministry of Health updates them daily and makes them publicly available. You can download the Dutch health ministry's dataset from here. It's a 2.8 Megabyte CSV file, currently well over 51,000 rows deep, listing every reported positive test result, hospitalisation and Covid death in every municipality and every province. Office Calc, part of the free OpenOffice software suite opens it without a problem.

If you can't be bothered playing around with the spreadsheet you could help yourself to the Dutch health ministry's 47 page summary (PDF), which is updated weekly, but it's in Dutch, so you'll have to run it through Google translate.

Then there is the Dutch health ministry's Dashboard, also in Dutch. It is updated daily. It provides stats for the most recent three days. If you click on "More explanation and dates" underneath each section (Intensive care admissions per day, Hospital admissions per day, People tested positive and so on), it pops up charts covering the period from March to the present.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

RIVM only issues weekly data now as it says daily data fluctuates too much. It also says this is 'best' data. Does the British OSR offer the same in depth 'best' data?

So is the death ratio for the NL better or worse than the UK and/or is the NL data more or less political, and as a result have the Dutch gov made better or worse political decisions when considered against your deaths per head of population? You don't seem to want to talk about this Scott - other than saying "Britain bad" that is. We could compare the Dutch experience to the German if you prefer: Has the NL faired better or worse than the Germans?
