The incidence drops another nine points to 463 cases and Health reports 174 deaths

The incidence of the coronavirus registers a new decrease of nine points to 463.15 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. The rate has been showing a clear downward trend for weeks after rising for months, and Spain has already come out of ‘very high’ risk levels this week. All the indicators seem to decrease progressively, and with them, also the sanitary restrictions are relaxing more and more.

The group of people aged 12 to 19 years is the only one that registers an increase in incidence, which now stands at 727 cases. Meanwhile, people between 50 and 79 years old report an incidence of less than 400 points.

Health has notified 22,400 new infections registered in its latest report, which brings the total number of infected since the start of the pandemic to 11,100,428.

Hospital pressure continues to drop. The percentage of bed occupancy by COVID patients decreased to 4.59%, as well as this same percentage in the ICU, which fell to 9.31% occupancy.

The Ministry has also added 174 deaths to its registry. In total, 100,413 people have died from COVID-19 since the health emergency began in the country.

Spain opens a new evaluation on menstrual disorders after the vaccine against COVID-19

The European drug agencies evaluated in the second half of 2021 whether the COVID-19 vaccine could be causing menstrual disorders. They concluded, after reviewing all the information then available for each of the vaccines, that there was insufficient data to support “the hypothesis of a possible causal relationship.” Now, the Spanish Medicines Agency (AEMPS) has reported that it is starting a new evaluation as a result of “two studies that suggest an increase in the frequency of these disorders after vaccination, with slight and transitory changes in menstrual cycles.”
