In the week from August 8 to 14, 353 cases were confirmed by PCR or antigens (53 per 100,000), which represents a decrease of 52% compared to the previous week. The incidence in all age groups decreases markedly. However, Public Health insists that the incidence remains “somewhat high” in those over 65 years of age. Admissions and deaths decrease more slowly -than the incidence- for this reason and due to their delayed presentation with respect to infections, the Navarrese Government has reported. Last week 22 admissions were registered (30 the previous week), an admission in the ICU and six deaths from covid (eleven last week). These data are collected in the latest Epidemiological Report of the Institute of Public and Labor Health of Navarra (Ispln), in which it is stated that 13% of the population over 65 years has contracted the infection for the first time from May to date. The circulation of the Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 subvariants (97%) predominates, against which previous infections do not fully protect. Vaccination considerably reduces the probability of hospitalization, but does not manage to prevent it completely, according to the Government . To avoid these incomes, while there is circulation of the covid, it is convenient that people over 65 years of age or with chronic diseases, as well as the people around them, maintain a prudent use of preventive measures, even if they are vaccinated, added the Executive. Hospital occupancy also reflects a notable decrease. The total number of patients in the different hospitalization modalities went from 99 on August 7, to 68 with which it was closed last week. For its part, the number of patients hospitalized in the ICU on those same dates has remained at five patients. Likewise, in the last week the presence of genetic material of the coronavirus in the wastewater of Iruñerria and Tutera has decreased sharply. , compared to the previous week. Appointments for vaccination The Department of Health reminds that in all age groups the appointment to receive the vaccine is still open, which will preferably be managed online on the website citasalud.navarra.es. It is also possible to do so by email through the address [email protected], or by telephone, depending on the health area of ​​residence: 948 370 130 for the Iruñea Health Area; 948 370 140 for Tutera; and 948,370,135 for Lizarra. As of August 14, 1,429,077 doses of vaccine had been administered.
