Since the start of April, Spain’s Health Ministry has changed its method for reporting Covid-19 data. It now only focuses on cases registered among citizens of ‘higher vulnerability’ and older age groups.

For Friday 13 May, the Health Ministry has only released the incidence rate of Covid for people aged 60 and over, which has been registered as 856 per 100,000 inhabitants – an increase of 43 in a week. The figure on Friday 6 May was 813 for the same age group. There have been 68,234 new cases registered of Covid for those aged 60 and over since the last update on Tuesday. The previous week’s comparative increase had been 55,578.

The incidence rates for each higher age group are: 692 for 60-69 years (Friday 6 May: 653); 925 for 70-79 years (867); 1,074 for those aged 80 and over (1,045). 

In total (across all age groups), there are currently 7,200 people hospitalised for Covid-19 (on Friday 6 May it was 6,858), representing a 5.80% occupation of hospital beds across Spain (5.53%). 366 are in intensive care (362), representing 4.07% occupation of intensive care units (ICUs) by Covid patients across the country (4.44%).

The official figure for the total number of Coronavirus-related deaths since the start of the pandemic on Friday 13 May is now 105,444 – an increase of 575 since the figure on Friday 6 May of 104,869. Last Friday’s increase had been 413 over the previous week.
