The incidence of COVID-19 grew again in Spain in mid-March, announcing for the fourth time since the pandemic began a wave of the virus, but this time different: not only with restrictions to stop it but also with vaccines. On the 16th, more than two weeks before Easter, the fall that had been going on for a month touched the bottom: 127 incidence cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days, data equivalent to an average risk of contagion according to the ‘semaphore’ of the Ministry of Health. The goal since January, as Minister Carolina Darias had repeated, was to stay below 50. The ground was far away. The growth since that day 16 is slow but sustained. The spokesman for Health, Fernando Simón, said at that time that it remained to be seen if it continued until it became a fourth wave, or if it stayed in “wave”, softer than the previous three.
Health hopes to accelerate the immunization of the group between 70 and 79 years with the Janssen vaccine that arrives this week
