History seems to repeat itself: a part of the health system stressed to the point that it cannot fulfill its functions. The Generalitat de Catalunya has communicated that Primary Care is collapsed and asks contacts positive for SARS-CoV-2 not to go to health centers If they don’t have severe symptoms, they simply self-confine. In that community there are more than 2,000 cases for every 100,000 under the age of 30, that is, 1 in 50 has been infected in the last 14 days. Most of them have not yet been vaccinated, the main reason for this growth, according to the Ministry of Health. Young people do not usually develop the disease in a serious way, but who assumes their care is Primary; and who is in charge of contact tracing, Public Health. Members of both health levels have been working tirelessly since January 2020. And they have also been involved in the vaccination campaign for months.
The Government relies on vaccination and tracking to stop the outbreak of infections
