This was said by the director of the Center for the Coordination of Health Alerts and Emergencies, Fernando Simón, who also said that hospital admissions have declined because the most detected cases are in the most vulnerable groups. younger population, who generally suffer from a lower impact in terms of case fatality and hospitalization.
The director estimated the occupancy rate of intensive care units at 8.2% and added: “Unfortunately, there are still deaths.” According to Simón, for 8 weeks the pandemic has been stable, even if, despite the good evolution, he asked that the security measures be maintained while stressing that the vaccination plan has protected the most vulnerable.
The General Council of Official Medical Associations (CGCOM) urged the government to regulate the use of masks in open spaces and to clearly define the conditions under which they will not be needed because if the safe distance is not maintained, new peaks will occur. in summer.
Doctors are concerned that, with a majority of the population still unvaccinated, “in the busy streets and squares of summer festivals in Spain, no one will be wearing a mask” from next Saturday and that “when entering and leaving leaving the premises around it, fewer and fewer people protect themselves with them. “
