Spain exceeds 12,000 hospitalized with COVID, the highest number since February

Spain is in the midst of a wave of infections, but thanks to the accumulated immunity, it is not translating into pressure in the ICU and deaths at the same rate as in other phases of the pandemic. This is reflected in the data for this Friday since, although those hospitalized with coronavirus once again mark their highest level since February – there are 12,080 people admitted with coronavirus, 500 more than last Tuesday – in the ICU the number of admitted is of 508, only six more than Tuesday.

These data translate into an occupancy of 9.95% of the beds, compared to 9.56% in the previous report. The Ministry led by Darias has registered 83,613 new cases of coronavirus since Tuesday, bringing the total since March 2020 notified by tests to 12,973,615.

By communities, Catalonia is the one with the most cases (2,576,331), followed by Madrid (1,864,057) and the Valencian Community (1,494,467).
