Scientific knowledge about SARS-CoV-2 advances. The information collected by the Ministry of Health grows and is completed with the succession of waves. The fifth leaves a somewhat more accurate photograph of one of the blind spots of the epidemic: reinfections. The Carlos III Health Institute counts 9,082 cases until September 1, although only 8% of them, 729, are confirmed. The rest, the majority, are probable or possible.
The figures include the reinfection cases reported by the autonomous communities between May and September of this year to the National Epidemiological Surveillance Network (RENAVE). In the same period, the communities notified Health more than 1,300,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19.
