The incidence of coronavirus is still contained in Spain, although with a slight increase in the rate to 51.6 points per 100,000 inhabitants, after just over a month of the lifting of almost all restrictions. The data contrasts with other European countries such as the United Kingdom (873), Germany (306), France (117) Portugal (105) or Italy (94), where the incidence is higher.

The Ministry of Health has reported 3,291 infections and 15 deaths. The total number of infections now exceeds 5 million, and deaths total 87,477. The incidence goes from low to medium risk (from 50 to 150), but with a controlled hospital pressure in both general and intensive care (4.37% occupancy in these units, below the 5% risk threshold).

Most of the indicators of the pandemic in Spain draw a more stable scenario than in the countries of the European environment, favored by a rapid vaccination, the progressive lifting of restrictions and the still current mandatory use of the mask, except outdoors where safety distance can be maintained.

Now 78.7% of the entire population have already inoculated the entire vaccine regimen, and more than a million people have already received a booster shot.

In the world, the death toll from COVID-19 has surpassed 5 million, with the United States, Brazil, India and Mexico as the hardest hit countries, according to the latest count by Johns Hopkins University. In total, more than 247.4 million infections have been recorded since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020.
