The Hospital admissions in the province of Huelva due to Covid-19 have doubled in just three days, according to the data provided by the Ministry of Health this Thursday. To date, in Huelva hospitals there are 27 infected people, two of them in the ICU, due to its extreme severity, when this past Monday there were only 13, one of them in the ICU.
Must go back to the middle of September, to find a similar number of hospitalized. The figure is low when compared to the more than 100 admissions for Covid-19 that were in April or the more than 200 in February of this year, but it represents a significant increase in hospital pressure And, what is worse, it means that while the new infections continue to increase, hospitalizations will rise.
The vaccination is having a positive effect in that new infections are milder, but there are still almost 100,000 people in the province of Huelva (including those under 12 years of age) who have not received any doses. This means that 18% of the total population is not vaccinated and the virus continues to circulate and affect both the unvaccinated and the vaccinated, although the proportion is 60% among the former and 40% among the latter.
The vaccination of the first two doses is practically stagnant, because the population that remains to be vaccinated either does not want to do so or belongs to the age group under 12 years of age. The third dose has already been injected into 59,838 Huelva citizens and this is actually increasing, something fundamental for those over 60 years of age, who are the most affected by the loss of effectiveness of the vaccine over the months, especially of those vaccinated. with Astra-Zeneca.
