increasing by 10 points over the weekend compared to Friday.

The region that most worries in this regard is the

Ceuta (106), Canarias (133) and Andalucía (138) are with the lowest incidence.

In her appearance this Monday, Silvia Calzón, Secretary of State for Health, has expressed some reservations about the data that are offered on Mondays, but has influenced the fact that the trend continues to rise: "The data that are given on Mondays have "They have to be quarantined because there are usually delays in notification. The 7-day AI continues to trend up the curve in the coming days."

On the other hand,

2,041 infected have been admitted in the last seven days

, most of them in Valencia (308), Andalusia (288) and Castilla y León (180).

and Valencia, with 1,503.

Of the 2,041 admitted,

154 have required Intensive Care

in the same period of time and 117 more since Friday.

Thus, the global number of patients who have entered this hospital unit is 17,601.

As Silvia Calzón explained

, the increase in cases in this phase of the second wave has not yet been transferred to hospital pressure.

"These hospitalization data, as is the case with the deceased, still reflect the downward trend in AI that we have experienced in recent weeks, the rise that we are now experiencing will soon be reflected in the healthcare data," he assured.

The upturn in Spain is also reflected in the rest of Europe.

Our country continues in fifth place in number of infections, behind Russia (2,848,377), France (2,473,354), the United Kingdom, which also exceeds two million (2,040,147) and Italy (1,953,185) this Monday ).
