The figure on Friday 22 April was 555 for the same age group. There have been 62,695 new cases registered of Covid for those aged 60 and over since the last update on Tuesday.

The incidence rates for each higher age group are: 543 for 60-69 years (Friday 22 April: 443); 712 for 70-79 years (583); 880 for those aged 80 and over (731). 

In total (across all age groups), there are currently 6,362 people hospitalised for Covid-19 (on Friday 22 April it was 6,119), representing a 5.12% occupation of hospital beds across Spain (4.94%). 329 are in intensive care (339), representing 3.66% occupation of intensive care units (ICUs) by Covid patients across the country (3.76%).
