The incidence soars to 204 points after adding 32,000 infections since Friday and reaches 640 among young people

The coronavirus outbreaks associated with young people complicate the first stages of this summer. The incidence rate exceeds 204 points after shooting more than 50 since Friday and reaches 640 among young people.

For several weeks, the age groups in which this rate has skyrocketed are those ranging from 12 to 49 years old. Primary Care and public health services fear that macro outbreaks like the one in Mallorca will complicate the control of the contagion curve that does not stop growing. Since last Tuesday, the Ministry of Health includes the breakdown of the accumulated incidence in age groups and that of 20 to 29 is the one that grows with the most force. The indicator of the previous Tuesday in this group stood at 251.

The increase in infections translates into greater hospital pressure. Barcelona hospitals have begun to notice the explosion of coronavirus cases in this early summer. From June 25 to July 1, 21,658 cases have been diagnosed in Catalonia, almost five times more than the previous week, when 4,559 were detected.

This week, a large outbreak originating in Salou is of particular concern, which has infected 700 Navarrese students and has forced the hours of discos to be reduced.

More than 40% of the population has received the complete guideline

More data for optimism. More than 40% of the total Spanish population has received the complete schedule of the COVID-19 vaccine after 1,166,638 vaccines have been administered since Friday. In total, the autonomous communities have already injected 43.9 million vaccines and 55.9% of the population has received at least the first puncture, that is, 26.5 million people. The vaccination campaign continues apace and Spain hopes to be able to reach the goal of vaccinating 70% of the population with the full schedule before the end of August.
