On December 1, 2020, there were 564 positives, 491 admitted to the ward and 129 to the ICUs. Just one year later, with 91% of the target population vaccinated, the data are these: 1,361 positive, 207 admitted to the ward and 55 in the ICU.

The Basque Autonomous Community entered this Friday, again, in state of health emergency due to covid-19. After less than two months since she had been called off, he worsening of most indicators has caused the Lehendakari, Iñigo Urkullu, to decide to re-implement the state of health crisis, recover the LABI and the possibility of decreeing restrictions.

The situation, although much better than many European countries, is not the desirable one: the CAV has, together with Navarra, the worst epidemiological situation in the entire State. It has a cumulative incidence of 577 cases per 100,000 inhabitants at 14 days, when the state average is 248.

Nevertheless, cumulative incidence does not currently cause the same effect than a year ago. And what is the difference? The irruption of the covid-19 vaccine. The 90.1% of those over 12 years of age with CAV are fully immunized and 91.7% have at least one dose.

Thanks to the important vaccination coverage, the numbers of this 2021 have nothing to do with those of the past 2020. Making a comparison using the data as of December 1, 2020 in contrast to those of the December 1, 2021, reflected in the last bulletin of the Basque Government, a clear conclusion is reached: the number of infections and the cumulative incidence are worse than a year ago, but the hospital impact is much lower.

On Navarra the radiography is very similar. The sixth wave reaches a peak equal to or greater than the previous ones – in recent days the new positives have touched or exceeded 500 daily cases – but with almost half of ICU admissions. Currently there are 96 people admitted to Navarrese hospitals, 16 of them in ICUs. A year ago, to date, there were 145 admitted, 29 of them in the ICU.

What’s more, 31 people died in 2020 in the last week of November, in front of 5 in 2021.

With these data in hand, this week the president of Navarra pointed out that in terms of hospital occupancy, Navarra is at low risk: ”We do not have to look at the number of positives, but at the hospital occupation” He has reflected.
