Spain faces its third Covid summer with a health situation that is similar to that experienced in previous waves.

Seventh wave:

infections continue to increase and the number of hospitalized is similar to that of four months ago.

Health has recorded 68,186 new cases of coronavirus, of which 33,664 have occurred in people over 60 years of age.

A figure that has increased by 10,000 cases in three days and that brings the total number of infections in Spain to 12,681,820 since the start of the pandemic.

The latest report published by Health accumulates the highest number of infections for the month of June, which began with 42,989.

The figure for this Friday increased by 17,951 more positives compared to the data from three days ago.

The incidence has risen again, marking the highest this month, with 755.71 positive cases per 100,000 inhabitants, after a declining streak, according to the indicators for risk assessment established by Health.

Which means that

Spain is at 'medium risk' according to the risk assessment established by the Ministry.

The Community of Madrid is the territory with the highest number of infections, 761.18 positive people per 100,000 inhabitants in the last seven days.

On the other hand,

Andalusia is the least affected

region with 128.73 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, according to the monitoring indicators established by the department led by Darias.

The rest of the Autonomous Communities are at level 2, with La Rioja being the most affected with 683.73 positives in the last seven days, followed by the Balearic Islands with 518.82 cases of coronavirus in the same range.

As for hospitalizations, Spain falls back to February levels.

Health notifies 8,205 people admitted for coronavirus,

the highest figure for the entire month of June.

The health system is experiencing a situation similar to the one it assumed in February with 7,824 admissions for coronavirus.

Four months later there are almost 700,000 more people vaccinated with the complete schedule and a million and a half more with the first booster dose, situations that differentiate both dates.

In total there is 92.7% with the two doses and 53.5% with the booster injection.

This week,

Guadalajara enters alert four with 20%

occupancy of acute beds by Covid-19.

The traffic light turns red -alert level 3- in the provinces of

Madrid, Toledo, Ávila and Albacete

.

On the other hand, Córdoba is the only Spanish province on alert 1, that is, with less than 2% of people admitted to acute care.

The rest of the provinces have an orange traffic light - around 5-10% occupancy.

However, at the moment the ICUs do not notice these increases.

Health has 388 people admitted to intensive care throughout the territory, the highest figure for the month of June.

Patients and occupancy beds covid June 2022

The ISCIII report also notes that, at the national level, between weeks 22/2022 (May 30-June 5) and 23/2022 (June 6-12),

the weekly incidence of COVID-19 in people 60 years of age or older increases by 2%

in a statistically significant way.

In this same band, a significant increase is observed in the Autonomous Regions of

Asturias

, beginning with an incidence of 174.3 and reaching 198.2 in week 23. The same occurs with the

Balearic Islands

, with an incidence of 284.6 (in week 23) .

22/2022), 371.8 (on 23/2022).

Canary Islands

in the same process with an incidence of 423.3 during the first week and rising to 486 during the second period.

Castilla y León

starts with an incidence of 312.1 and rises to 343, in week 23. As in

Catalonia

, where the data reached 293.7 during the end of May and 336.5 at the beginning of June.

The territory of

Galicia

reported 355.2 in week 22 and exceeded 417.6 in June, and

La Rioja

with 307.4 at the end of May and 403.2 at the beginning of June.

The data collected by the Ministry

reports 194 deaths,

so the global death toll from coronavirus rises to 107,799 people since the start of the pandemic.

The ISCIII report, according to the

Surveillance of daily mortality from all causes

( MoMo

) section, indicates that

104,574 excess deaths

from all causes have been estimated.

Omicron variants are made with Spain

The latest Health report has indicated the presence of the BA.2 lineage in Spain.

During week 22 of 2022 (May 30 to June 5),

the Autonomous Communities are considering the percentages between 55.7% and 91.2%.

That same week, for lineages

BA.4 and BA.5

it is between 5.5% and 44.3%.

Those with

more than 20% of cases with these lineages are the Balearic Islands, Galicia, Extremadura, Castilla y León and Asturias.

In Madrid, the Valencian Community, Castilla-La Mancha and Murcia, no specific data on these lineages have been collected.

The presence of these variants can be attributed to the increase in cases in the different Autonomous Communities.

As the latest report from the Carlos III Health Institute points out,

the new faces of SARS-CoV-2 have an upward trend in the Balearic Islands and Extremadura

.

In addition, also in the Canary Islands, Castilla La Mancha and Madrid, but it cannot be attributed categorically to these new lineages.
