The 14-day incidence rate fell slightly this Tuesday and stood at 196.2 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, although the report does not include data for Andalusia. Yesterday, this indicator had been located on the edge of the barrier of 200 points, in all 199 cases.
Health aims that the fourth wave does not reach an incidence of 300 cases while vaccination progresses
In the absence of data for Andalusia, the incidence increases in 12 communities: Aragon, Balearic Islands, Canary Islands, Cantabria, Castilla La Mancha, Castilla y León, Extremadura, Galicia, Madrid, Murcia, Navarra and Euskadi.
In its daily report on the coronavirus, the Ministry of Health has also notified 6,292 new infections. They are less than this Monday, although both data cannot be compared because the accumulated data for the weekend were reported yesterday. The data does represent a decrease compared to Friday, when 10,875 infections were reported. In total, 3,376,548 people have been infected since the start of the pandemic.
By autonomy, again in the absence of data from Andalusia, the Community of Madrid is at the head of new registered cases with 2,176 infections, followed by Catalonia (998), Euskadi (744), Castilla La Mancha (473) and Castilla and León (409).
In the last 24 hours, 100 new deaths have also been reported, bringing the total death toll to 76,625.
These data arrive on a day in which Johnsonn & Johsonn has decided to delay the distribution of its vaccine in the European Union. It has done so after the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States have recommended stopping its inoculation after registering six cases of thrombi in people who had received it.
Spain had planned to receive 300,000 doses of the serum from the pharmaceutical company on Wednesday. Health had also announced that 5.5 million doses of this vaccine are expected during this second quarter of the year.
