are the only ones that have not reported any deaths in the last seven days.

The increasing rate of cumulative incidence (AI) -number of confirmed cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days- makes the national average get closer and closer to 300 infections.

The Health report already registers

a rate of 265 infections

(10 points more than yesterday).

The Balearic Islands continue to be the one that worries the most, reporting an alarming AI of 528 cases.

Other regions with a level that exceeds 300 positives are Extremadura (459), Valencia (377), Madrid (371), Catalonia (349) and Castilla La Mancha (308).

On the other hand,

2,009 infected have been admitted in the last seven days

, most of them in Valencia (416), Andalusia (212), as well as in Catalonia and Galicia (207).

According to the latest report, Spain currently has

11,905 people hospitalized for coronavirus

, 127 less than on Tuesday, when the figure was 12,032.

Catalonia continues to lead in this ranking, with 3,089 infected patients, followed by Madrid, which registers 1,975;

and Valencia, with 1,875.

Of the 2,009 admitted,

191 have required intensive care

in the same period of time and 71 more in the last hours.

Thus, the global number of patients who have entered this hospital unit is 18,167.

Regarding the care capacity of hospitals

, the average number of beds occupied by patients with Covid-19 in Spain, not including other pathologies, is 9.80%.

Intensive care beds present a higher percentage:



The regions of greatest concern in this regard are Catalonia (34%), the Balearic Islands (31%) and Valencia (29%).

We must insist on the fact that these data do not include patients admitted for other diseases, so that the percentage of general hospital occupancy is higher.

At the European level, Spain continues in fifth place in the number of infections, behind




(2,574,041), the

United Kingdom

(2,382,865) and



In addition, Italy is at the forefront in terms of deaths, reaching a total of 73,029.
