The infections by covid-19 continue to rise in Catalonia and add 3,123 positives most notified in the last 24 hours, a few days after the start of the bridge. A similar figure, so high, you have to look for it in the month of August. Since yesterday there are also seven more deaths, 12 more people admitted (a total of 694) and three more people in critical units (148). It is the data of incidence updated this Thursday by Salut, a few hours after the covid passport for restoration became operational, which is reactivating a vaccination that was stagnant.
The primary care centers (CAP) are noticing it, and they attended yesterday Wednesday almost 13,000 patients. At the beginning of last month there were about 5,000.
The risk of regrowth (EPG), an index that measures the growth potential of the epidemic, keep going up and has been placed in 341 points, compared to 335 yesterday. The speed of spread of the virus (Rt) in Catalonia is 1.35 today, the same data as yesterday, which means that every 100 infected infect an average of 135 people. It’s one of the few indicators that remain stable or trending downward.
The increase in infections will continue
Since the beginning of the epidemic, a total of 1,046,226 people have been diagnosed with covid-19 by all kinds of tests in Catalonia, 3,123 of them recorded in the last 24 hours, while in the last week 11,925 have been diagnosed by PCR or antigen test (TA). The ‘minister’ Josep Maria Argimon already explained yesterday that a increased infections still for a couple of weeks.
