COVID-19 coronavirus infections grow again in Spain after seven days on the downside

Madrid / Positive cases of coronavirus have rebounded slightly in the last 24 hours after chaining seven days down with 5,478 new infections, totaling 140,510, and the same has occurred with the number of deaths, reaching 13,798 after 743 more deaths.

In addition, 7,069 patients are admitted to the ICU, 138 more than on Monday, which is more than double in 24 hours, and 2,771 more people have recovered from the COVID-19, with which there are already 43,208, the 30.75 % of total infections, according to the latest data provided by the Ministry of Health.

In this way, the same rebound that occurred last Tuesday occurred again and that the health technicians then attributed to the delays in the notification of the figures by the autonomous communities during the weekend.

Regarding infections, there has been an increase of 4.05% compared to yesterday’s balance, which revealed a 24-hour advance of the virus of 3.26%, the lowest since the crisis erupted. In absolute numbers, one of the new infections was not seen as low as today, except yesterday, since March 23, when it was 4,517.

The new deceased have returned to exceed 700 after two consecutive days below, although in percentage terms, the rise has been half a point in 24 hours (5.69%) and similar to that of Sunday, when it was 5.73% . It is thus the second lowest figure ever recorded.

On the contrary, the difference in patients in the ICU doubles that of yesterday (1.99% vs. 1.02%), although it is also the second lowest increase of all.

The number of cured patients more or less maintains the trend and today they are 6.85% more than on Monday the people who have been discharged.

The Head of Area of ​​the Committee for the Coordination of Health Alerts and Emergencies, María José Sierra, has justified the “slight” increase in infections (4%) in adjusting the data for the weekend, for which she has called for the Spend a few days to consolidate the information.

Descending trend

However, he has assured that the downward trend is the one that is still observed in recent days and has pointed out that there are two “important” dates in the changes in trend: March 25 and April 2.

Sierra has indicated that a certain drop in pressure is beginning to be observed “albeit slowly” in hospitals and ICUs.

As for the people discharged (more than 43,000), they represent 30% of the reported cases, “a figure that we like to see increasing every day,” he said.

Sierra recalled that this Tuesday is World Health Day and appreciated that this year is dedicated to the profession that “is contributing so much” in the coronavirus crisis and for its commitment to the health system.

Madrid, the most affected autonomous community

The Community of Madrid continues to be the most affected, with 40,469 (1,746 more than 24 hours ago) and has 1,494 ICU admissions (16 fewer), 5,371 deaths (235 more) and 18,410 cured (1,088 more).

Catalonia follows with 28,323 infected (1,499 new cases), 2,391 patients in the ICU (115 more), 2,908 dead (148 more) and 650 people have managed to overcome the coronavirus, with which there are already 10,738 discharged.

In third place is Castilla-La Mancha with 11,067 infections (465 more than the previous day), 360 people in intensive care units (6 fewer), 1,177 deaths (45 more) and 1,353 cured (94 more); and fourth, Castilla y León, with 9,581 infected people (488 more), 346 in the ICU (3 more), 982 dead (63 more) and 2,711 cured (178 more).

It is closely followed by the Basque Country, which has 9,021 infections (211 more), 417 patients in the ICU (7 more), 586 deceased (38 more) and 3,728 cured (160 more).

For its part, the Ministry of Health of Cantabria has reported 84 deaths, while the Ministry reflects 85, because the Ministry could not update the data on time. (April 7, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
