VALENCIAN Minister of Health Ana Barceló Says the Community is Struggling Under the Pressure of the Third Wave of the Pandemic
“We are going through the most difficult moment of the entire pandemic,” Ana Barceló acknowledged today (January 25) in an appearance in the regional Parliament where she was addressing her departments management of the coronavirus health crisis.
The latest measures introduced in the Valencian Community by her department were announced by the President of the Valencian Community, Ximo Puig, on Sunday (January 24), who stated that all gatherings in private homes will be limited to people who live together, meaning that from today, January 25, people will be prohibited from having guests in their houses.
“We have a sustained, uncontrolled transmission, with a sustained and growing hospital pressure,” she said as the third wave shows an exponential increase in new positives in the autonomous community.
Barceló updated the figures as of January 25: the virus’s reproduction rate is 1.03 (contagion capacity by one person) and the cumulative incidence in the last 14 and seven days is above the national average (1,245 cases and 529 per 100,000 inhabitants, respectively).
The counsellor appeared today after coronavirus patients admitted to the Valencia Field Hospital had to be evacuated due to strong winds in which 21 patients, who were admitted to the field hospital, were transferred in ambulances to the old nursing facilities of La Fe.
The PP is studying legal actions because from the beginning it has warned that the provisional facility did not meet the conditions to house patients, its spokesperson, Isabel Bonig, has announced in Parliament today.
