Galicia is already close to 800 hospitalized by Covid on the back of the seventh wave. According to the latest data provided by Sergas, this Monday, with the usual cut-off at 6:00 p.m. the day before, the 771 people with coronavirus admitted to the plant are joined by 25 more seriously ill, who occupy Community ICU beds. In total, 796 patients.
The jump is considerable compared to Saturday, the last day on which data on the evolution of the pandemic had been provided from the Ministry of Health. With impact on care recorded until mid-afternoon Friday, there were 22 patients in the ICU and 667 on the ward. That is: in 48 hours the increase in acute patients is not striking, since there are only three more, but in conventional hospitalization the jump is notable: 104. Hence, rounding up, there are 107 more people admitted for Covid due to the 'end effect of week'.
But that the virus is now rebounding, when it seemed 'forgotten', in the heat of the relaxation of prevention measures, is very bad news. The only positive note from this start of the week is left by the total number of infected, which dropped considerably: from 15,599 to 14,490. In the last 24 hours, according to Sergas, 753 new cases were opened.
This, added to the fact that the number of patients in the ICU is still relatively low, means that, for the moment, the alarms are not going off and that a clinical committee meeting has not yet been contemplated to launch new (or old, depending on how you look at it) measures. .
