The incidence of Covid-19 cases continues to rise in Spain and there are communities that have already announced possible restrictive measures shortly. That is why certain experts already announce the risks of a possible fifth wave in Spain in summer.
And it can already happen, in the middle of July, in the middle of summer and holidays for many people. This is predicted by Professor Antonio Guirao, who collaborates with the Ministry of Health, and predicts, at the end of July, about 10,000 and 15,000 infections a day.
The Delta variant
This rapidity of infections that can lead to a fifth wave shortly is due, in large part, to the Delta variant that has been in Spain for a long time and causes greater transmission of the virus.
Affects young people who move more
Now the virus has its point focused on young people, who move more, and who are causing various outbreaks in Spain, such as the Balearic Islands, something that, according to experts, could be repeated in other parts of the country.
Professor Guirao revealed then that he could have a sub-epidemic with the virus totally out of control but always on the youngest population because it is the one that moves the most and is not yet vaccinated.
More flexible measures
From the opening of the nightlife to the end of the outdoor mask. The measures against the covid, although the virus continues and with force, are now more flexible, and this could be another explanation of why infections are triggered more easily.
The professor does not go far and gives the United Kingdom as an example, which, due to the Delta variant, and although with good vaccination rate, detects over 20,000 cases daily and for this it worries. He fears that the situation could also occur in Spain.
In the coming weeks, the situation should be better, according to Escrivá
Asked about this great incidence of Covid in the country, which could establish a possible fifth wave in Spain this summer, the Minister of Inclusion, Social Security and Migrations of the Government of Spain since 2020, José Luis Escrivá, he believes that the incidence should drop in the next few days because the vaccination is having a good effect. He has commented to the program Al Rojo Vivo, of LaSexta, that the rate of vaccination among the young population needs to be further accelerated.
