For the first time in more than half a year, Spain does not register any deaths from covid in homes for the elderly in the last week. The data is extracted from the updated IMSERSO report, which includes the period from July 5 to 11, with 140 positives.

In that last week the cases rose, similar to what it did in the rest of the country, but mortality fell to zero, after several months in very low figures. Since the end of May, none of the weekly balances reached the dozen deaths in senior centers due to coronavirus.

The expected zero comes as a result of the vaccination campaign, which already has 100% of those over 80 years immunized with the full regimen and practically all of those aged 70-79 (97.6%, a figure that rises to 98.8% for those who only have one dose).

With the figures accumulated until the beginning of 2021, 15,799 inmates in residences had died from covid with confirmation of their positive and another 10,546 lost their lives with symptoms compatible with the virus but without official confirmation.

Since then, despite the fact that January continued to show very high data (about 2,500 recognized fatalities), mortality has plummeted. In the six and a half months that goes from 2021, the statistics collect 3,937 deaths in residences associated with the pandemic.
