SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, 19 Jan. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The island of La Gomera drops to level 1 health alert, low risk, given the evolution of its care indicators, so all the islands remain at level 1 or low health risk due to covid-19, as reported by the Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands.
The Ministry has updated this Thursday the levels of health alert after the epidemiological report of the General Directorate of Public Health, carried out in accordance with the criteria of the Surveillance and Control Strategy of covid-19 after the acute phase of the pandemic, based on the indicators of use of healthcare services.
The indicators for the use of health services, referring to the occupancy of beds, are fundamentally those that mark the severity caused by covid-19 and those that are taken into consideration to determine the level of health risk. In this way, five alert levels are established (from 0 to 4) that assess whether the situation is one of controlled circulation, which would be the lowest, or low, medium, high or very high risk.
In the Autonomous Community as a whole, the daily average of conventional hospital beds occupied by covid-19 patients stands at 2.72 percent. The level of risk in percentage of occupancy of conventional beds is at a low risk level or in controlled circulation.
The number of occupied ICU beds remains in controlled circulation on all the islands, with an average weekly bed occupancy of 2.35; while the occupancy percentage stands at an average of 0.54, maintaining controlled circulation.
The ICU bed occupancy rate per 100,000 inhabitants is at an average of 0.55 ICU beds occupied per 100,000 inhabitants, all the islands continuing in controlled circulation.
In the Autonomous Community as a whole, the Accumulated Incidence rate at seven days for people over 60 years of age stands at 92.47 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. In this parameter, all the islands remain at a low risk level or controlled circulation, except La Gomera, which is at a medium risk level.
