Infection data is rebounding after the apparent stabilization of the fourth wave of the pandemic since the start of the week. Health today reported 10,232 infections and 148 deaths from COVID in Spain, numbers lower than yesterday, when 7,486 cases and 114 deaths were recorded.

However, while on the last day health recorded a stagnation in the cumulative incidence compared to the day before, it has now fallen by one point to 229 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

In total, since the start of the pandemic, Spain has had to mourn the deaths of 77,364 people and recorded 3,446,072 infections.

In addition, yesterday there was a milestone in vaccination with the vaccination of more people than infected patients throughout the pandemic in Spain. Something that, as Health Minister Carolina Darias explains, shows that we are “at the beginning of the end”.

In fact, Spain has today integrated a new vaccine, the Janssen serum, in its vaccination plan, promising for its single-dose formula. After days of waiting for the EMA to approve this vaccine, the government today started distributing it to the Autonomous Communities, who hope to start inoculating it early this Thursday, April 22.
