July closes leaving the lowest infections of the entire seventh wave. The Ministry of Health has notified, with data provided by the Autonomous Communities, 19,417 positives in the last days. A figure that represents 6,601 infections less than three days ago and that maintains the decreasing rate that began two weeks ago. In the last report 11,422 of the cases have occurred among people over 60 years of age, as notified by the Ministry.
This number of positives is seven times lower than the data a year ago. Last summer, August started with 138,496 (in the report of August 2, 2021). The decrease in data has been reflected both in the improvement in hospital pressure and in bed occupancy, as well as in the number of deaths from Covid. Today, Health has notified 7,836 people admitted and 431 in the ICU.
In a total count, the month of July has accumulated 98,774 admissions hospitable and 4,509 in ICU. A seventh wave that dated its highest peak with 12,789 hospitalizations during week 28 (July 12) and 501 in intensive care. Throughout the weeks of July, the data would be reduced until closing the month with the lowest figure of 8,433 admissions and 460 in the ICU.
The latest Health report has recorded 273 deaths from Covid, which is 80 fewer people than three days ago. The seventh wave is settled with 98,774 admissions and 3,047 deaths from Covid in the entire month of July.
