These deaths are tragedies that could have been avoided. Be that as it may, the count is a bit over the past holidays years that was at 33. Maybe it is a good sign of hope because the previous 2020-2021 XMAS and New Year’s the country was under curfew and overall risks were reduced and yet the country still arrived at 33 deaths.
