The incidence rate continues to fall, which this Wednesday fell from 100 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days. Today, Thursday, it stands at 96 and rises in the Canary Islands (82.91), Galicia (40.45), Murcia (48.30) and Catalonia (98.76).

In the hospitals dated this Thursday there are 2,959 admitted patients – which places the occupancy at 2.40% -, of which 835 need treatment in intensive care units. Thus, the ICUs are 8.89% full and the only region that exceeds 20% is Madrid, with 20.07%. In the last 24 hours, there have been 570 registrations and 313 admissions.

The pandemic continues to remit in Spain, except in Andalusia. Of the ten cities with the worst incidence rates, nine are Andalusian. In addition, cases are increasing in half of the large municipalities in the region. In Euskadi, La Rioja, Catalunya or the Valencian Community there are also some upswings, although these are specific points and many start from very low levels of incidence.
