The fifth wave has hit hard among young people, but it has also dragged the older age groups with it. In a matter of a month, the incidence among those over 70 and 80 years old has multiplied by ten. Octogenarians have gone from registering around twenty cases per 100,000 inhabitants in July to almost 300 in August. Those over 50 and 60 have also escalated to 350 incidents. Residences have once again become a focus for sprouts, with more infections and deaths than in previous months but without resembling other waves. “We are concerned about the increase in cases, they were the most affected institutions at the beginning of the crisis and we will adopt the necessary measures so that these centers are safe,” said the Minister of Health, Carolina Darias, on Wednesday.
