The virus continues without giving ground in the Basque Country, and in the last week there have been seven deaths from covid-19, as well as 979 new infections in the last hours.
The latest data on the pandemic, collected in the Osakidetza weekly bulletin, reflect a new increase in detected infections as well as an increase in hospital pressure .
However, after the rapid escalation of infections last week, which soared by 24%, the curve seems to have stabilized and practically the same cases have been registered as from October 18 to 24, when 927 infections were recorded.
Regarding the incidence accumulated in the last 14 days, the figure has risen to 86.65 cases with Gipuzkoa as the most affected territory, since it accumulates an incidence of more than 116 Bizkaia for its part registers 75.54 and Araba is the only one that remains green with 54.21.
Likewise, and as Basque Government spokesman Bingen Zupiria recalled this morning, “more and more municipalities are in the red.”
And the fact is that the counselor of the Basque Executive has given a wake-up call to the youngest, ensuring that “they have relaxed in the face of the virus.”
