Children under 12 are already the population group with the highest case index of COVID-19, since this week they have been at the head of the positive ranking and are the only ones with a rate higher than 100 contagion for every 100,000 inhabitants . All others are right on that barrier or below it.
The official reports of evolution of the pandemic of the Ministry of Health reveal that vaccines against Coronavirus are serving to stop cases in Spain, to the point that the population group with the highest incidence at this time is precisely the only one that At the moment it can not be vaccinated due to lack of scientific evidence and permits of health authorities.
Although the country has an index of infected from 91.21 people with every 100,000, the situation ranges at approximately 60 points among those currently with more cases and those that least. Children under 12 are at the top of 127,86 positives on Friday, when the Government published the last daily report.
The lowest rate is recorded with 69 cases two population groups that, paradoxically, during the pandemic have been among the most affected in number of hospitalizations and deaths. They are among those over 70-79 years (which have an incidence of 69.19) and of those over 60-69 years (which hold the lowest record with 69.10).
These two groups of population were vaccinated mostly during the spring, once the process ended with those over 80 years. Precisely, they received inoculation at the beginning of this year, after protecting people who lived in residences and professionals who work in risk professions.
The over 80 years, who were among the first to be protected, now return to be among the most affected groups. The Government's official data encrypts the incidence of COVID-19 in 100.56 cases, only surpassed by children under 12 years already mentioned and young people 12-19, who have been the last to be called to vaccinate and They have an incidence almost equal to 100.88 positive per 100,000 inhabitants. All other population niches are below 100: 98.47 those of 20-29 years, 94.28 those of 30-39, 89.37 those of 40-49 and 72.63 those of 50-59 years.
Interestingly, the current incidence of coronavirus at all ages (with the exception of those over 80) is inversely proportional to vaccinated time, since the lower case rate is 60-69 with 69.10, followed by of those of 70-79 with 69.19, those of 50-59 with 72.63, those of 40-49 with 89.37, those of 30-39 with 94.28, those of 20-29 with 98.47 , those of 12-19 with 100.88 and, finally, under 12 years old, who can not be vaccinated, with 127.86.Updated Date: 21 September 2021, 17:22
