“Now it is not time to remove the masks“, has assured the Minister of Health of the Junta de Andalucía, Jesus Aguirre. At a minimum, in the community, citizens will have to wear them, both indoors and outdoors, up to 75% of the immunized population with the two doses or with antibodies after having passed the Covid-19.
If all goes well, there are no delays by the European Union in the arrival of vaccines and the rate of 600,000 doses given per week continues, Aguirre believes that this figure can be reached next august.
En the I Spanish Economic Forum “Post-Covid Andalusia” at the Cajasol Foundation in Seville, organized by EL ESPAÑOL and Invertia, the Andalusian councilor has not been as optimistic as the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez.
Sánchez does see that citizens get rid of these PPE on a near horizon. This Wednesday has assured that “early” in Spain no need to wear masks outdoors, thanks to the high rate of vaccination. In a few days, 15% of the population will have the complete vaccine regimen.
However, Aguirre believes that not using this protection “createslaugh a false feeling that we have defeated the virus and it is not like that. “
Another issue that worries the Andalusian counselor is the arrival in the community of the Delta strain, which is the one that was detected for the first time in India. Five cases have been detected in Andalusia, all imported.
Hence, Aguirre is going to propose to the Interterritorial Health Council this Wednesday the advancement of the second dose of AstraZeneca to the group between 60 and 69 years to increase protection against this strain. The goal is not wait for the stipulated 12 weeks.
