Health, on standby for an increase in Corona virus cases in Andalusia

Health, on standby for an increase in Corona virus cases in Andalusia

The increase in coronavirus cases in the region worries the Ministry of Health, a month after the entire region was free of health restrictions. Now, when the virus coexists with others, such as influenza, the focus is on the pressure of hospitals in community centers, as well as on the state of the epidemic in neighboring countries.

The Deputy Minister in charge of the matter, Catalina Garcia, reported that she is maintaining a “very important vigil” to the development of the Covid-19 epidemic, with a “very slow” rise in infections. As specified, the community has a GPA of 34.4 cases per 100,000 residents in the last 14 point days, so it’s “rising very slowly, but it’s going up.” An increase is also occurring in hospitals, where 167 people have been admitted, 40 of whom are in the intensive care unit.

Masks and safety distance

Caution remains the key. He said that the use of masks, vaccination, and maintaining a safe distance from the necessary elements to avoid a new collapse in health, as is happening in other countries, “where 10,000-5,000 cases began to occur daily.”

“Social relations have increased exponentially, all this affects the infection, not only of the coronavirus, but of other respiratory diseases such as influenza, which in the last year was almost zero due to the lack of social relations. However, the precaution and prevention because of that is the way Which we have to live with, but we have the tools: they are masks and a vaccination against the Corona virus”, stressed Garcia.

Janssen . second dose schedule

The deputy minister insisted that more than 560,000 Andalusians, 7.5 percent of the target population, had not started the coronavirus vaccination process. “We’re still very concerned about the 7.5 percent high frequency now, that we’re going to start that phase, and the care situation could be complicated if everything gets mixed up, which it will, with other respiratory viruses like the flu.”

With regard to this immunization, he referred, on the other hand, to the specific application of the second dose to persons vaccinated with Janssen. He explained that it was carried out with messenger RNA and “it started last week and specifically in the places where the disease was really outbreak, which were prisons.” The expectation is that “this week and that is to come, a second dose will be scheduled for all people who have been vaccinated with Janssen.”

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is also expected to authorize the vaccination of children under the age of twelve. “We are already working on this planning in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, because we will be doing mixed vaccinations through schools, but also through primary care centers,” he said.
