The former CoV hotspot Spain is celebrating considerable success in the fight against the virus. The number of infections per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days remained below the 100 mark for the first time in two months, and the seven-day incidence is now 98.56, the Ministry of Health announced yesterday in Madrid.

Spain now has one of the lowest incidences in Europe, the newspaper “El País” wrote. The value was more than halved within one month. On November 4 it was still 236, and the number of admissions of Covid-19 patients to intensive care units within seven days fell from 382 to 210 in the same period. Today, only about 24 percent of intensive care units were still occupied by Covid patients, compared to a good 29 percent at the beginning of November.

Strict rules for Christmas
In spite of all the joy, Vice-Chairwoman Carmen Calvo warned the 47 million citizens of the country against negligence. One should “move as little as possible”. This also applies to the holidays on Monday and Tuesday as well as to Christmas and New Year’s Eve. The socialist politician sets a good example: “For the first time in my life, Christmas will not be in my (Andalusian) village of Cabra. But the sacrifice is worth it.”

Meanwhile, Health Minister Salvador Illa announced that the national vaccination campaign would begin in January. It is expected that 15 to 20 million people will be vaccinated by May or June. The vaccination will be voluntary and free of charge in Spain.
