In Granada, the seventh wave of covid is intensifying. The number of new infections has continued its rapid rise since June 24, a few weeks after the Corpus Fair. The Health report on Friday, July 1 showed that there had been more than 1,000 cases of covid. The figure was 851, as of Tuesday, July 5. However, there are more since diagnostic tests are only available for those who are most vulnerable and self-diagnostic testing, which are the most common among the populace, are not included.
However, the number of people admitted for the disease continues to rise, exceeding one hundred. This figure has not been seen since March. According to the Ministry of Health and Families data, 105 people are still in hospital in the province as of Tuesday. This is three more than the number of those admitted last Friday (103). Only one of the patients has had to be admitted to the Unit of Intensive Care. We must be sorry for three deaths due to coronavirus and 2,197 Grenadians have died since the outbreak.
As a result, the hospital pressure has risen slightly in the past week, as shown in the Health section. This is the report of the last three days, since it was stopped publishing daily three months ago. At the end of June, there had been 20 new admissions. This Tuesday saw 63. There are 450 of them, which is good news as the majority of infected have recovered.
