Catalonia In Spain Has Reported An Increase In Covid Cases And A Rise The Incidence Rate.
THE risk of the spread of the coronavirus is growing again in Catalonia, which on June 14 reached its lowest point since the summer of 2020 with 80.98 points. Today, Tuesday, June 22, the rise in the incidence rate of 92 points, a jump of eight points, brings it closer to the threshold of 100, which marks a high risk of regrowth.
The rate of spread of the coronavirus, Rt, is already 1.08, and the incidence at 14 days increases to 86.01 cases per 100,000 population. The positivity rate of last week’s PCR or antigen tests is also growing, to 3.58 per cent.
The Spanish Department of Health has reported 684 new cases of Covid-19 confirmed by PCR or antigen testing, making the total in Spain 639,716, and four more deaths. There are 468 patients admitted to hospitals, with 154 in ICUs across the country.
Valencian has reported 204 new cases of Covid-19. Care pressure continues to fall sharply: there are now only 15 people with the disease in intensive care units. Half a year ago there had been 587. On the other hand, vaccination continues to progress at a good pace, with 20,399 more first doses administered over the last few days.
Staycations for Spanish Nationals
The news of the rise in cases comes at the same time as the arrival of the summer solstice in Spain. Monday marked the official kick-off of the summer tourist season, a campaign that is still expected to be highly affected by the pandemic.
Three out of 10 national tourists will stay at home this summer – ‘staycate’ – mainly for economic and public health reasons. This is clear from the report Habits and behaviours from the National Observatory of Tourism Issuer (Observatur) who made the data public on Monday, June 21.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
