García Rojas: «There are still days in a complicated situation»

In the Archipelago there are 7,394 people infected by coronavirus, of which 46 are admitted to Intensive Care Units (ICU) and 266 remain hospitalized on the ward. Yesterday it was necessary to mourn the death of a 57-year-old man in Tenerife who, according to the Ministry of Health, suffered from previous pathologies and remained admitted to the hospital. With this death, the region now adds 799 deaths.

The head of Epidemiology of the General Directorate of Public Health of the SCS, Amós García Rojas, explains that these figures are being given by “the appearance of the Delta variant, which is more contagious; because there is still a long way to go to reach a broad vaccination coverage that hinders the transmission of viruses, although we are making good progress; and because a triumphalist message has been launched in certain sectors of the citizenry about the end of the pandemic. The epidemiologist affirms that «there are still days in a complicated situation“And warns that” if this impact of infections had occurred at the beginning of the health crisis, the transfer to deaths and hospitalizations would have been brutal. ”
