The cumulative incidence continues to grow, increasing by 31 points in one week to reach 182 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, 20% more than last week.

Ceuta, Melilla, Navarra, Madrid and the Basque Country are at extreme risk. Among them, the one that grows the most in incidence is Madrid, it increases by 21% this week. In addition, all indicators are getting worse. The one that worries the most is the increase in the number of ICU beds, especially after weeks of efforts to reduce the number of critical patients. Since last week, the curve has risen again, with 2,050 people admitted with COVID, 8% more in a week.

It also worsens the positivity. After several months of decline after the peak of the third wave, the curve has reversed since last week and climbed to 8%, further and further away from the 5% recommended by the WHO.
