The Ministry of Health has updated the data of the pandemic this Tuesday, in a report that reflects a new, albeit very slight, drop in incidence at 14 days that remains in 120.3 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. In addition, the ministry directed by Carolina Darias has reported 4,388 infections and 30 deaths.
The profile of the contagion curve is getting flatter and reflects the stabilization phase into which the pandemic has plunged in recent weeks. The incidence data of the last days are very similar to those obtained in mid-March, when the third wave touched the ground after a long period of decline.
Despite the fact that, on average, the incidence at 14 days has fallen by just 1.2% at the national level, transmission of the virus has increased in 11 communities: Asturias (3.9%), La Rioja (3.4%), Extremadura (2.9%), Valencian Community (2.2%), Andalusia (2.1%), Basque Country (1.8%) ), Navarra (1.7%), Castilla y León (0.8%), Balearic Islands (0.7%), Galicia (0.2%) and Aragon (0.1%).
The autonomies with the highest levels of incidence are, in this order, Basque Country (199.6), La Rioja (180.7), Andalusia (176.1), Madrid (173.5) and Aragón (164.5), all of them at a “high” risk level. The rest of the territories are at “medium” risk with the exception of the Valencian Community (35.5) and the Balearic Islands (38.15).
The vaccination campaign continues after the start of 292,096 new doses on Monday. In this way, there are already 18,178,604 people who have received at least one dose of vaccine (38.3% of the population) and 9,405,245 who have a full schedule (19.8% population).
With regard to hospitalizations, the number of people admitted with coronavirus continues to decrease little by little. Currently there 4,655 patients hospitalized for Covid (203 less than Monday), of which 1,285 (62 less) are in ICU.
The average occupancy in these units is 13.3%, although seven communities are worse than the national average. These are Madrid Madrid (27.6%), La Rioja (26.4%), Basque Country (22.1%), Aragon (20.9%), Castilla y León (19.2%), Catalonia ( 18.7%), Castilla-La Mancha (18.7%).
