The new peak is now 49,823 cases. At the same time, the number of new infections per 100,000 in the past seven days rose from 377 to 424, according to the country’s Ministry of Health.

The difference since then has been that more than 80 percent of Spain’s population has received at least one dose of the coronary artery vaccine. So most people who are infected now have only mild or no symptoms.

The number of Corona patients in Al-Bilad Hospital reached 1,472 on Tuesday, an increase of 30 from the previous day.

Both the local authorities and the government in Madrid are reluctant to introduce a significant further tightening of infection control measures.

Only the autonomous region of Catalonia, located in northeastern Spain and home to Barcelona, ​​has stepped in to shut down the nightlife.

The authorities there will also impose restrictions on the number of people who can gather and impose a curfew at night. The measures, which have not yet been approved by the courts, are set to run for 15 days from Friday.

Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez plans to gather the country’s regional leaders for a video conference on Wednesday afternoon to discuss anti-epidemic measures.
