Spain reported a record 93,822 new coronavirus infections over the weekend and 767 deaths, the most since the second wave of the pandemic began.
This was reported by El Pais.
The incidence of the virus in the past 14 days also rose to a new high of 885 cases per 100,000 people on Monday versus 829 cases on Friday.
The European Union has recommended isolating all areas with more than 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. Most of Spain’s autonomous communities, except the Canary Islands, Asturias, Cantabria, the Basque Country, and Navarra, exceed this figure.
The Ministry of Health said the hospital workload was the highest since April. In intensive care units it is 40%, and in the case of regular beds — 24%.
It is also reported that 1,237,000 doses of coronavirus vaccine have been administered, 92% of the doses received. 88,700 people have already been immunized with a second dose.
Recall that the Spanish Minister of Defense accepted the resignation of Miguel Angel Villarroi, head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces, after the scandal of vaccination out of turn.
