Valencia Region goes from Very Low to Very High Risk

Postby marcliff » Tue Jul 13, 2021 6:52 pm

Spain has today recorded the highest number of cases in one day since February at 43,960 which exceeds that of the UK. The cumulative case rate has risen from just under 100 to 436 per 100,000 since the beginning of July.

The Valencia Region was, one and half months ago, the province showing the lowest rate in the whole of Europe with 29.74 per 100,000 and was classed a low risk area. Today this has risen to 357.12 per 100,000 which has now placed it in an extreme risk category.

The vast majority of these cases are in the Valencia Province and among the age group 16 to 29.
That age group is showing a rate of 1,014 per 100,000 and the Valencia Province has notified 2,086 of the total 2,855 new cases in our region.

Deaths are, thankfully, very low with just 3 notified in the last week in our region and just 13 today in the whole of Spain which is up from just 5 yesterday.

I think it's pretty obvious that Spain won't go on to the UK green list on Monday.

We've just driven a friend home to Cabo Roig, all the restaurants from PuntaPrima and the strip at Cabo Roig was heaving. Don't think we will be mingling much and eating out.

Do you think there is a chance that Spain will go on the UK's red list?

The next announcement is tomorrow 15th July.
Although the case figures are increasing, the U.K. government also take into account, the number of people vaccinated. The fact that Spain is now doing well at putting jabs in arms ( to coin a Boris phrase) should hopefully keep Spain off the list.

I hope so. I, like many others here, am getting desperate to see my family back in UK.

Spain like the UK has a high infection rate, but that has not so far changed the low hospitalisation or low death rate. Spain still has one of European lowest daily death rates.
It was in thd UK news today that on average in Winter, 200-300 deaths a day from Flu is common, which is significantly higher than covid.

I really don't understand this ongoing panic. Yes its dangerous, yes its here to stay, but its no longer the risk it was.
Thats not my opinion, that's the medical and scientific opinion.

It's also a shame because we normally go away to either Altea or Calpe around this time (Mon to Fri to avoid the crowds at weekends).
Both those places have now gone to extreme risk with over 250 cases per 100,000, the hotels we stay at have slots for breakfast (1 hour) and the only one available in Calpe is 10 to 11 which is too late. Also have to book times for the swimming pool which wouldn't bother us in Calpe as it has a nice, sandy beach nearby but Altea only has a stone beach so pool time would be a nice part of the week away.

Looks like we'll be making our own breakfast and using the pools here instead.

Because of the high number of cases now spreading down the coast (48 out of the 57 coastal towns have now gone to over 250 cases per 100,000) they are talking of bringing in further restrictions. Ximo Puig said he wouldn't rule out having to use the EU covid passport showing both vaccines to use bars, restaurants, cinemas and so on. He didn't say they would do it, just that it was something to explore if the situation worsens.

The regional secretary of tourism has said they could use the covid passport throughout the entire tourism and leisure industry.

It could also be argued that the vaccines are working as, even though some countries are showing 30 or 40 thousand cases in one day, the amount of deaths as MichaelC pointed out are very low. The vaccines could be doing their job (like the flu one does) and keeping the symptoms to a minimum.

On the other hand, with the increase of cases in the unvaccinated younger groups, it could just show what were classed as the vulnerable (mainly us old crinklies) are being protected but it is now infecting those without protection.

One day we may get back to normal. Seeing the grandkids on Skype isn't really the same as seeing them in person.
