The third wave of COVID-19 is being controlled in Spain and in the rest of Europe. And the great wave that a year ago swept the world that we knew is also going down for five weeks. In the latest report from the World Health Organization it can be seen that the number of infections has decreased in the last week by 16%, 2.7 million less than the previous one. The number of deaths also falls, 10%: 81,000 less. It is the longest decrease in these 12 months. It does not necessarily mean that the end is near, but it does perhaps mean that humanity is no longer a “blank canvas” against the virus as it was in February 2020. Experts ask for time to observe the behavior of a virus that has been demonstrated unpredictable, and they rule out that vaccination, which began mainly in rich countries, has an impact on the scale of global numbers.
