Health alerts about the latest outbreaks of Covid infections: high school festivities after the end of Selectivity

With the advancement of the vaccination process – this weekend more than a million doses have been put – contagions, income and deaths among the older population are decreasing, and each time the ages of people who remain unprotected are reduced, because their turn for the puncture has not yet come. They are getting younger and younger and the Ministry of Health has indicated this Monday two important “milestones” of the last few weeks that have ended in an increase in positives: the festivities for the end of high school and for finishing the EVAU.

The director of CCAES, Fernando Simon, has pointed to the “end of courses academics, the Baccalaureate and the end of the EVAU and subsequent celebrations“such as the events responsible for the epidemic being” stabilized “or even increasing among the younger groups.

It is, he said, a “understandable but probably excessive relaxation “ which is holding back the downward evolution of the epidemic throughout the country. Curiously, the differences between communities continue to exist but are decreasing and, on the contrary, the difference between age groups increases, with an incidence that is now higher in the youngest. Because they are not yet vaccinated and also because of their behavior.

“We have to remain aware that the coronavirus is still there,” has warned Simón, who has recognized that, in the case of increasingly young people, it has “less impact because there are fewer ICUs, hospitalizations and mortality” but has pointed out that “it also has it” and that when it occurs “it has a social impact even greater than when it occurs in older people. “
