Although the hospital pressure does not resemble the previous waves of Covid-19, the impact of this “fifth wave” in terms of population impact will be as intense as in the second (autumn 2020), third (winter) and fourth (spring). This is what it indicates the trend detected since the beginning of July by the Canal Isabel II Vigilance System, which tracks the remains of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in the wastewater of the Community of Madrid.
The presence of coronavirus in the wastewater of the Canal de Isabel II has generally increased in the region continuously in the last three weeks, coinciding with the beginning of July, after a continuous decline since the end of April. Although the first rebound occurred in Madrid capital, the incidence in the rest of the Community has followed the same growth rate since the second week of the month.
The sequence of the graphs warns that the level of Covid in Madrid’s sewage was significant between the months of September and October, in the so-called second wave; to then go down and climb again, reaching the record at the end of January (third wave).
In February and March it was reduced but remaining moderate levels until pick up something in early April (the so-called fourth wave), to experience a substantial and prolonged decline since then until the first week of July, when the general incidence has increased, especially among the younger population.
The system also publishes four charts. The first three show the general evolution for the entire Community of Madrid, Madrid capital and the rest of the region, and the fourth shows the evolution of the general state of the color sampling points. Red for the number of wells with increased SARS-CoV-2 presence, orange for wells with slight decrease, yellow for wells with pronounced decrease, and green for few without presence of this virus.
For wells the trend is also negative. The graphs indicate that red wells have soared to overtake yellow wells in the second week of July as oranges and greens plummet.
