There are currently 19,314 people hospitalised for Covid-19 in Spain (previously 19,617), representing a 15.47% occupation of hospital beds across Spain (15.76%). 2,204 are in intensive care (2,261), representing 23.28% occupation of intensive care units (ICUs) by Covid patients across Spain (23.94%).
The official figure for the total number of Coronavirus-related deaths since the start of the pandemic on Tuesday 25 Jan is now 92,376 – an increase of 382 since Monday. This is the highest number of deaths in a 24-hour period since 26 March 2021, when 590 deaths were registered. As has happened in previous waves of the Covid pandemic, however, deaths have been the last indicator to drop, after decreases in the incidence rate, hospitalisations and admissions to ICUs have been registered, also because deaths are very often recorded late. The figures last Tuesday had showed 284 deaths for the 24-hour period.
