The incidence of covid-19 rises in Spain to 160 points

Madrid, Nov 26. – The Spanish Ministry of Health notified on Thursday 9,258 new cases of covid-19 and added another 27 deaths to the official count.

With this data update, there are already 5,121,100 cases of the covid-19 registered in Spain since the beginning of the pandemic, of which 87,931 are fatal cases.

As has been the case in previous days, the detection of new cases raised the cumulative incidence – infections per 100,000 inhabitants in a reference period of 14 days – which stands at 160, which is 11 points more than on Wednesday.

Despite the increase in infections, the pressure on the health system is still much lower than in the worst moments of the pandemic: at the moment, Spain has 3,273 people admitted for covid-19, occupying 2.63 percent of the beds in the country.

Of these, 571 receive intensive care, which represents the occupation of 6.22 percent of the ICU places.

Data from the Ministry of Health show that the low levels of hospital pressure are due to the success of the vaccination campaign.

From September 20 to November 14, 96,176 cases of the covid-19 in people whose vaccination information is known.

In the case of citizens with full vaccination, the infection rate is 24.1 per 100,000 people, while among unvaccinated people it is multiplied by three, up to 67.4.

In addition to a higher risk of contagion, the data show that the unvaccinated have a greater risk of developing the covid-19 seriously.

If one looks at the most vulnerable population – those over 80 years of age – the death rate is 1.4 per 100,000 among those vaccinated and 13.1 among those not vaccinated.

This is seen even more clearly in the age group 60 to 79 years, with a death rate of 0.2 among those vaccinated compared to 2.8 among the unvaccinated. That is, fourteen times more.

According to the latest report from the health authorities, a total of 37.5 million Spaniards have already been vaccinated with the complete schedule, which represents 89.2 percent of the target population (the one over 12 years old) and 79.2 percent of the total population.
