I remember many articles about ice rinks being used as mortuaries, as covid deaths were increasing. One of the more notable stories can be found here: https://www.france24.com/en/20200324-spain-transforms-ice-rink-into-makeshift-mortuary-to-cope-with-coronavirus-deaths
However according to this statistic, overall deaths in spain in 2020 were not significantly more than expected.
I also can't find pictures of ice rinks with actual bodies, I only ever read these articles, when the ice rinks were prepared to be used, but not when they were actually used.
Did Spain really use an ice rink as mortuary, or was it only preparing to use it, but never actually needed to use it because the number of deaths wasn't as big as expected?
When people tell me, that covid is not a big deal, I point to stories like that, however it seems, that these stories don't make much sense under closer scrutiny.
