Evolution of infections in January

The Christmas campaign has ended and with it has come a new escalation of infections by COVID-19

 

Last Wednesday was Kings Day, and with that the festivities end. Despite the measures taken by the Government, the number of infections has increased as expected, since most of the people have reunited with family and friends.

All this comes from the hand of the new vaccine, which has made many people overconfident with the feeling of "false security." The units that are arriving in Spain are very limited and are being distributed little by little. The first groups of people to receive these vaccines are going to be sanitary and older, but currently not enough are available for everyone.

 Evolution of COVID infections in January - Béjar masks - Surgical masks

We have been able to appreciate in the latest data how all these events have increased the number of infections. We are in what today is considered "The third wave”From Coronavirus. The figures speak for themselves as the number of infected has doubled.

In November it was estimated that the number of infected was 150 per 100.000 inhabitants, but at this time they already reach 300. On January 4, 30.579 people were infected, a clear increase in cases so far. Unfortunately, the alert and emergency centers say that it is still too early to know the number of infected so we will have to wait for the real impact that these festivities have had.

Experts say that it is expected to know the size of the real impact within two weeks or even three. We can only be patient and hope that the figures do not rise as much as expected. Autonomous Communities such as Catalonia, Extremadura, Castilla y León and the Valencian Community, have already taken extraordinary measures in this regard, restricting mobility and even closing shops.

Evolution of COVID infections in January - Béjar masks - Surgical masks

The most affected

As expected, the increase in those infected has brought with it an increase in occupied hospital beds, especially in ICU beds. To date, 13.800 people are admitted to a hospital for Coronavirus, that is, 11% of the beds occupied in Spain, are due to a COVID-infected person, which greatly increases the risk of contagion in patients at risk and in healthcare.

Take into account that this only represents the national average, 7 autonomous communities register more than 25% of the beds occupied by patients with coronavirus, according to data from the Ministry of Health. These autonomous communities would be: Balearic Islands, Castilla-La Mancha, Castilla y León, Catalonia, Valencian Community, Madrid and La Rioja.
