Spain exits the extreme risk level of COVID two months later and adds 7,461 new infections and 443 deaths

The Ministry of Health has registered this Tuesday an incidence of 235.8 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days, a rate that is below 250 from which experts consider the epidemiological situation of extreme risk due to the first time since December 28, 2020. This indicator remains in continuous decline since the peak of January 28, when 994 cases were reached. The current situation according to this parameter is, at that time, high risk.

The health authorities have notified 7,461 new cases of coronavirus this day, a figure lower than the 11,435 on Friday, and which continues the downward line of the last week. In total, since the health crisis began almost a year ago, 3,161,432 people have been infected.

In the death box, Health has added 443 more deceased people. There are already 68,079 since March, of which 871 have died in the last week. This indicator is the one that takes the longest to decrease once the incidence and infections have begun to fall, but last Tuesday the number of people who had died with coronavirus in the last seven days was 1,290.

On the floor, the figure is 14,169 patients, but the percentage of beds occupied by people with coronavirus stands at 11.3%. In total, since March 312,919 people with COVID-19 have been admitted, 2,701 of them in the last seven days, and 27,185 in ICU, 267 during the last week.

The autonomous communities have already supplied 3,165,191 doses of vaccines, which represent 87.4% of those they have received. Furthermore, 1,208,305 people have already been injected with both doses, so they can be considered fully immunized. Most are in Andalusia, where 216,617 people already have the full guideline; Catalonia, with 181,835; and Madrid, where 169,765 people have received the two doses.
