From “record“This is how the Basque Government Minister of Health, Gotzone Sagardui, described the data on the pandemic in Euskadi. The Department will publish the epidemiological bulletin at noon, but the Minister has advanced in an interview in Onda Vasca, the” record “data registered both in number of infections and incidence: the 2200 cases in a single day and the accumulated rate in 14 days is already above the 1000 points.
As he affirmed, the data “are not good” and “we will once again have a record number in the number of positives detected and we will be above 2,200”, a “very high” number. “There are many lottery tickets for people to need admission to hospitals, where we already have 300 people in plant affected by covid-19, and that means tickets to need an income in the FIA, where there are about 100 people, 97 yesterday, “he stressed.
If the data is compared with the registered a week ago, the more than 2,200 counted yesterday suppose almost double of those in the previous bulletin, and the incidence rate has escalated more than 200 points in these seven days. Hospital pressure has also tightened considerably: from the 73 critical patients last Wednesday, we have gone to 97 yesterday. The number of hospitalized in the plant has grown by seven people.
In this sense, the counselor has underlined the importance of vaccination: “Every time an age group is inoculated, the incidence in that group drops and the effect on infections is less on health,” he explained. Sagardui has pointed out that the possibility of being admitted to hospitals is six times higher in unvaccinated people and that of entering an ICU 10 times higher.
As for the people deniers, the counselor has acknowledged that she does not understand them. “They do not want to be vaccinated for some supposed side effects and machivelic theories”, when the “evidence is in the street, with that 91% of inoculated with the complete pattern that makes life normally and less risk of being infected and contagious” . “If you want to play with your life, I will not understand, but play with others …”, has argued.
Regarding the situation in hospitals, Sagardui explained that Osakidetza “at no time has stopped paying attention to the urgency of the rest of the pathologies” but has indicated that “they are reprogramming” interventions “that are not serious or urgent”.
He pointed out that, at this moment, there are 288 ICU beds prepared to attend to covid-19 and the rest of the interventions, so “there is a margin”, but 97 are already occupied, which “means that you still have to consider a change of scenery”.
