The Covid-19 is leaving a new increase in cases in the middle of summer and experts predict that they will still go up a few more weeks, although in his vast majority are mild cases that “something” is being noticed in Primary Care, but hardly “nothing” in hospitals and even less in ICUs.

According to the latest Sentinel Surveillance Report on Acute Respiratory Infections in Primary Care (IRAs) and in Hospitals (IRAG) Influenza, COVID-19 and other respiratory viruses published by the Carlos III Institute, in one week the incidence of covid-19 in Primary Care has increased 13 pointsof 75 cases per 100,000 population to 88. At the beginning of July it was 29.

By age groups, the higher numbers they continue to occur in under 5 yearswhich exceed 180.

While the hospitalization rate is located in 2,04 (in the previous report it was 0.75), but with fluctuations at the end of June. The rest of the respiratory infections that the report analyzes until August 6, the flu and the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), remain in basal levels in both areas.

Unlike these two viruses, Sars-Cov-2 “has never had a seasonal behavior“, emphasizes Salvador Peiró, a specialist in Preventive Medicine and Public Health from the Health Services Research Area of ​​the Foundation for the Promotion of Health and Biomedical Research of the Valencian Community (Fisabio).
