Average age of positive Covid cases in Sitges is 34

The latest wave of positive cases of Covid-19 that is shaking the country has a slightly lower average age in Sitges and Sant Pere de Ribes than in Catalonia as a whole. 

In the last seven days the average of new positive cases in both municipalities is between 34 and 36 years of age, whilst across the whole of Catalonia it is 37 years. This slight decrease in the average age is caused by a higher percentage of infection in the school environment. The number of positive cases at schools in Sitges during the first fortnight of December has been significantly higher than the Catalan average.

Although the data provided by the health department does not give details of the percentage of those vaccinated against the virus, the impressions transmitted by the medical teams, based on objective data, are that the positive cases are significantly higher among those who have not received protection from jabs.

The average age of 34 was stable in Sitges and Sant Pere de Ribes during the last two weeks. In the second half of November, however, it was higher: in Sant Pere de Ribes it was over 40 years old and even reached 51. As for the low number of positive cases recorded between mid-September and early November, it is not possible to draw valid comparisons locally, as there were weeks with less than five positive cases.
