Castilla y León reduces the accumulated incidence rate to 881 cases

The accumulated incidence in Castilla y León stands at 881 cases per 100,000 inhabitants at 14 days, below the 945 that marked last Sunday despite the slight rebound today, although the fall is much more notable at seven days , where the Community throws 392 for the 481 of November 15.

The figures offered by the Board through its open data portal show that the curve has fallen in the last week, although today it has experienced a small increase. Thus, last Sunday, the rate stood at 945, it fell from 900, specifically 896 cases, last Wednesday and today it stands at 881 after yesterday it marked 869.

Below this average are Segovia, which has the lowest incidence with 412 cases; Ávila, with 570; Salamanca, with 621; Soria with 828; León 835 and Palencia with 850. Above are Zamora with 952 cases per 100,000 inhabitants; Valladolid, with 999 and Burgos, which is still the most affected province, with 1,342 cases.

In this sense, this indicator, which shows the average number of people that each person who is positive for COVID-19 can infect, continues to decline since last November 10 and stands at 0.88 on average in the Community, which means that each person positive for COVID-19 does not infect an average person. This figure, the RT of 1, stands as the bar that must be lowered in the evolution of a pandemic so that the expansion curve of the virus falls.

In the case of the provinces, all of them are below 1, except for Palencia, whose reproductive number stands at 1.13 and which is transferred to the accumulated incidence since in this province the 14-day rate has not stopped growing since November 19.

In the rest of the provinces, the basic reproductive number oscillates between 0.74 in Segovia, which is the lowest record, followed by Salamanca with 0.75; León and Ávila with 0.79 and Zamora with 0.87. Burgos and Soria are above the regional average with 0.91; Valladolid, with 0.93 and Palencia, with the mentioned 1.13.


On the other hand, the occupancy of critical units stands at 69 percent with the Río Hortega Hospital in a very delicate situation, having 96 percent of the ICUs enabled with patients. The University Clinic of the Valladolid capital is the second with the fewest free beds, only 24 percent.
