“We are seeing income from 20-year-olds every day.”

The indicators that mark the level of cumulative incidence in the last seven and 14 days in Gran Canaria and Tenerife remain at very high risk, despite having experienced a decrease compared to last Tuesday, August 3. The pulmonologist Miguel Angel Ponce, has affirmed the concern of health personnel about the low percentage of immunization of young people between 20 and 29 years old before the Covid-19 in the Canary Islands in an interview conducted at Cope Canarias. Listen to the full interview here.

“Every day we are seeing income from people in their 20s and 30s, and the fifth has been the worst wave by number of income. La Candelaria Hospital has exceeded 200 admissions, and in no wave has it had that number of admissions “, says the doctor and PP spokesman in the Canary Islands Parliament on health matters.

“Pneumonia can leave sequelae, I have patients who are on oxygen for months at home and even if they do not die, there are many cases of persistent Covid in young people with various sequelae”, asserts and points out that young people can also have the disease.

On the controversy that arose around the AstraZeneca vaccine, states that “Certain vaccines such as AstraZeneca’s are being demonized, highlighting in the media two cases of thrombi among a million people and this has generated fear and confusion, reinforcing deniers that they are doing so much damage.” “There are many patients with fear, when the contraceptives themselves produce more blood clots than the AstraZeneca vaccine”he insists.

With respect to new drug, which has been tested with significant success in Israel, EXO CD24, and to which some information gives a 90% cure, argues that “Now we are using Rendesivir and corticosteroids with acceptable results, especially if the patient has at least one dose of the vaccine. But these new drugs decrease inflammatory cytokines and are having good results on inflammation, with which the therapeutic arsenal is increasing and the most important thing is that they are approved by the large international agencies “.

While, on the Lambda variant, it was sincere that “We know little about it, although there is also the Delta Plus. The danger is that these variants have greater vaccine escape than the Delta, and in the Delta we are already seeing outbreaks in residences with deceased. With which, in this immunocompromised and older population, we will need a third dose. Not to the entire population, but to these people, because they are the ones who die the most “.
