New Covid cases registered in Sitges are now people in their 20s

The average age of those testing positive for Covid in Sitges has dropped by more than a quarter in just three weeks. On 5 June, the average age for new cases registered in the previous week was 40. On Saturday it was at 30. By Tuesday it had dropped to 27 years of age according to data from the health authorities.

The decline in the age of new positive cases is widespread throughout Catalonia. Starting the vaccination process with the oldest age groups has left the youngest as the most vulnerable. And this has coincided with the flexibility of the measures and therefore with a greater capacity for mixing between people.

Whilst in the whole of Catalonia, the figure is between 30 and 40 years old, in Sitges it has fallen to those in their twenties.

In recent days there have been precautionary confinements of several groups of young men and women from Sitges, caused by outings, meetings and celebrations.

Meetings of friends and crowds of young people on the breakwaters and in the Ribera promenade during the early hours of Friday and Saturday go back to the end of the State of Alarm, on 9 May.

The age range remains higher in Sant Pere de Ribes, despite the end of May outbreak. On Saturday, the average was 52 years old, while on Tuesday it had dropped to just over 37.
