Despite protests from a large section of health professionals, the mid-March Covid flu seems to be carrying a very high price. Between the first days of July and August, the community already accrued 308 deaths from the coronavirus, a figure that shoots past the summer’s record. In the same period of 2020 (between July 1 and August 5), the region barely saw six deaths, compared to 73 recorded last year. Therefore, the current figures exceed and increase by four times the record for the summer of 2021. Mortality rates to alarming levels that this latest attack of the virus is leaving behind.

The community has added 44 deaths and 2,495 new positive cases from Covid

The starting point of these three summers is different, which is an important factor in the existence of such a disparate record. In 2020, the community and the rest of Spain made contact after a long summer
lockdown With which infections were practically reduced and with a de-escalation, progressively, restrictions were allowed to be eased, although certain limits were maintained in closed spaces and precautionary measures such as the use of masks. Most of the population widely respected the advice of experts and the administration, such as reducing social contact and protecting the elderly and vulnerable.

A year later, the community had just suffered a brutal and deadly third wave, so infection levels remained under control between March and June. In addition, the elderly and vulnerable populations already had vaccines and masks were still mandatory, so the spike in infected people in the summer slightly raised the death toll, although they didn’t even come close to current figures. There are hardly any restrictions in this summer period, those who are infected have been without isolation since the end of March or
quarantine And, with the current limitation in conducting diagnostic tests, there is a huge hidden bag of cases; That includes the loss of effectiveness of vaccines and not very successful administration of booster doses, a cocktail that is causing an increase in deaths.

The rebound in mortality is positive and after the end of the isolation of the restrictions

In fact, the health ministry has notified 44 more deaths from coronavirus this Friday, leaving three with the death toll being 11, 13 and 19 in the last 7 days. They are 22 females, aged between 29 and 103 years, and 22 males, aged between 58 and 93 years. The 29-year-old deceased had other serious ailments.
