The bad omens of the weekend are confirmed a day later. The coronavirus pandemic is out of control in Spain, where the Ministry of Health has registered 25,438 new positives and an increase in the incidence to 454 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. A new upturn that confirms that the Christmas weeks have favored the transmission of Covid-19 among the population. And in many cases, with fatal results, since the department of Salvador Illa has added to its statistics 408 more deaths from the disease than have been counted in the last 24 hours.
The accumulated incidence (AI) of Monday has already activated the alarms of what would come in the next few days, after it grew by almost 80 points in a day in which it could already be valued in a clearer way the consequences of Christmas gatherings. Now, the upward trend is confirmed with those 454 registered cases, which areexceed the extreme risk limit at more than 200 marked by health authorities. Something that is also noticeable in hospitals, where Income at the plant as well as at the UCI does not stop increasing. In the first case, there are 1,774 more hospitalized than on Monday, while in intensive care units the increase is 173 more people.
The autonomous communities do not present encouraging numbers either. Extremadura continues at the head of the health crisis, which once again increases its AI and reaches 1,076 positives per 100,000 inhabitants. Figures that show the constant progress of Covid-19 in the Extremadura region. The second worst is Madrid, which has surpassed the Balearic Islands on the list. Madrid’s autonomy reaches 621 cases, and the archipelago grows to 600. Except for Asturias and the Canary Islands, which are still below the maximum risk, the rest of the Autonomous Communities show a serious situation. Among those that exceed 500 IA are Castilla-La Mancha (596), Catalonia (523), Valencian Community (565) and La Rioja (593). Although some are close to reaching that number, such as Castilla y León, with 469.
The concern motivated by the weekend data released this Monday continues in this way. That the incidence soared and the record of accumulated infections was broken in three consecutive days confirmed what many were feared: that the Christmas season was going to considerably worsen the epidemiological situation throughout the country. Something that the director of the Center for the Coordination of Health Alerts and Emergencies (CCAES) admitted, Fernando Simon, which admitted that a large part of the citizenry had passed more relaxed parties than they should. Which, according to his analysis, motivates that now there is an “upward trend” of all indicators.
Communities continue to tighten their measures of perimeter confinements or closures of non-essential activities, such as shops that do not offer products in that category or the hospitality industry. Some measures that are taken in the hope of containing a virus that, currently, spreads throughout all territories after the slight improvement in November and early December due to the end of the second wave. But whose effects may take time to be noticed. What has caused the shadow of home confinement return to rest on the autonomous communities, despite the fact that none of them has yet ruled on whether they will request it or not.
He The central government has already assured that it has ruled out such an extreme route, for which the population has already spent almost two months confined in their homes to try to contain the blow of the first wave. For the moment, the department of Salvador Illa trusts the future to the effectiveness of the plans of the autonomous communities. What will be combined with the vaccination campaign, which will be reinforced in the coming days after the first doses of Moderna’s vaccine arrived in Spain this Tuesday. Vials that will join those already available from Pfizer, and those that from February it is expected that those of the Oxford vaccine will be added, whose marketing application will be studied by the European Medicines Agency on January 29.
