The vice-chairman of the board, Juan Marín, warned that “72%” of the 122 people currently admitted to the intensive care units (ICU) of Andalusian hospitals with COVID-19 are “money”, that is ie “people who did not wish to be vaccinated”, “between 50 and 60 years”.
This was stated by the Vice-President of the Council during the press conference after the weekly meeting of the Board of Governors, during which he appeared with the Advisor for the Presidency, Public Administration and Home Affairs and carries – speech of the Andalusian government, Elías Bendodo.
By analyzing the situation of Andalusian hospitals following the new admissions caused by Covid-19, Juan Marín said that it was “very atypical for people already vaccinated, between 50 and 60 years old”, to enter intensive care. ”, And in this regard he stressed that“ 72% ”of current patients in intensive care units are“ deniers ”of the vaccine, after which he appealed for vaccination.
For his part, Andalusian government spokesman Elías Bendodo detailed that 64% of the 102 people who entered community hospitals last weekend for COVID “were not vaccinated”.
In addition, he warned that “the age of those entering continues to drop”, so that “40%” of this weekend income corresponds to “those under 40, and among them, 85% are not vaccinated by the circumstances that are “.
In this sense, Bendodo defended that these figures show that “vaccination works” because people who have received both doses “get such a high immunization” that, although they can contract the coronavirus, they manage to get it. “the disease does not progress and leads to hospitalization”.
“A cry in the sky” addressed to the Government
Likewise, the adviser’s spokesperson insisted on appealing to the Spanish government to increase the rate of arrival of vaccine doses in Andalusia in the coming weeks.
Thus, Bendodo commented that the Council had “no choice but to cry out to heaven”, as Andalusia will this week receive around “470,000” doses of vaccine, “practically half” of the 835,000 received last week. , as he regretted.
The council spokesperson argued that “it does not make sense for the government to stop the arrival of vaccines at the end of the vaccination campaign”. “We do not understand it”, riveted Bendodo, who called the circumstance “imprudence”, and considered that the new government that Pedro Sánchez formed after the changes of last weekend among the members of the Council of Ministers must having as “the only priority” is to “appear before the European Union and the pharmaceutical laboratories” in charge of the production of vaccines and “demand that the arrival of these be multiplied”, because “many are in progress workmanship, “as he pointed out.
“The Spanish government has nothing more important at the moment than to guarantee a large supply of vaccines,” insisted Bendodo, while the vice-chairman of the board, Juan Marín, added to journalists’ questions that “the distribution of vaccines must be by criterion of equality for all Spaniards, as established”.
“We are not going to change these criteria”, insisted on clarifying the vice-president before adding that on the side of the Council “we do not want the arrival of vaccines to slow down”, but that Andalusia does not want ” neither more nor less than anyone “when it comes to dosage.
Finally, Marín and Bendodo agreed to defend the order of vaccination that Andalusia followed, in descending order of age, giving priority to the oldest and highest “risk” groups of the virus, and the vice president felt that this had been reflected in nursing homes, with almost zero incidence of the virus at the moment.
For his part, Bendodo said he does not seem “responsible” for lowering the vaccination age by skipping other periods of several years, because “the younger the infected person, the less possibility there is of ‘enter the hospital,’ as he insisted.
