Barcelona, August 13
As Spain hospitals start to see Covid sufferers returning, consultants say the nation seems to have been shedding its second spherical of virus combat.
Rafael Bengoa, ex-health chief of Spain’s Basque Country area and worldwide guide on public well being, mentioned, “The numbers are saying that where we had good local epidemiological tracking, things have gone well. But in other parts of the country, we have community transmission again.”
Manuel Franco, a professor of epidemiology at John Hopkins and Spain’s University of Alcalá, cited Spain’s financial inequalities which have uncovered poorer communities, particularly fruit pickers, to better hurt, understaffed epidemiological surveillance companies, and its giant tourism trade. — AP
