May’s coronavirus Given the low incidence of severe cases, the World Health Organization (WHO) no longer classifies it as a global health emergency.
But the absence of the new coronavirus on the world emergency list does not mean that it has disappeared, because The virus continues to spread.
Ccontagion continues Although the outbreak has been contained and reduced thanks to vaccines, experts still call for caution.
In Spain, the number of coronavirus cases slightly raised In recent days, though the toilets have been reassuring and assured that the pictures are generally tame.
Taking off the mask undoubtedly increased the mobility in summer, which meant an increase in the number of infections.
Also, immunity from the vaccine is reduced, because as you recall Carlos Montalva (from SEMERGEN) Cadena SER is where the last vaccine was delivered to the most vulnerable “a year ago”.
People over 60, the group most at risk of contracting the virus, have been prioritized by vaccination campaigns, but the last boost was nearly a year ago and defenses have weakened, so infections are rising in hospitals and health centers.
Those conditions are generally milder than those during the pandemic, Montalva said.
Health data on morbidity remains low, Less than 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitantsalthough only those over the age of 60 receiving health care were counted, since self-diagnosis was no longer counted.
But even without counting, the rise in cases is understandable because many pharmacies are seeing higher sales. new crown test,In some cases Sales increased by 200%.

But for Montalva Flu cases as “more severe cases” are occurring.
The number of flu patients has also increased in recent weeks, although not a typical time for the virus to spread.
He also warned that taking more serious photos would even require Antibiotic treatment.
epidemiologist advocacy Return to vaccination campaigns in the fall And the flu vaccine is the same as the new crown vaccine in the most vulnerable groups.
Currently, the increase in cases has not translated into an increase in ICU admissions, as hospital saturation in this area remains very low.
