The coronavirus continues to grow in Catalonia waiting for the Government to decide whether or not to expand the covid passport and ask for it in the restoration, something for which the experts advocate, as this Monday they will transfer to Salut. The figures for this sunday they continue like those of the last days, with a upward trend in indicators and greater health tension, something, however, very far from the levels of months ago due to high vaccination. But nothing negligible: in 24 hours there have been 46 more admissions due to covid, and they are already 470 people who are in hospitals.
Therefore, health officials and experts insist on the need for vaccination and a third dose:
Third very important dose for +70 years in the face of winter. We insist again, protection of the vaccine in transmission is not enough to maintain low incidence with high levels of social activity (esp. Indoor) and with delta. Please vaccinate to protect i6 /
