Junta PM Concerned over Covid

The PM of the Junta, Juanma Moreno, announced that he will convoke a meeting of the Medical Board of Experts next week to deal with the increase in Covid cases.

AND Juanma Morena JA23 400x250The reason that he is organising a meeting of the regional, public-health committee, more commonly known as the Comité de Expertos, is because there has been a 10% increase in the number of cases amongst residents of homes for the elderly and a 41% increase amongst the staff of these residencies. The average increase for both residents and workers has been a 17% one over two weeks.

Furthermore, there are 17 elderly people that have been hospitalised, which although it is not a large number, it is triple the number from two weeks ago.

At the meeting they will analyse the situation, and if necessary adopt preventative measures, above all in residencies. “I want their opinion on what we should be doing in the way of prevention,” he said.

He is also concerned that almost half of the population in Andalucia over 60 have not had their 4th jab and calls upon this age group to come forward as he considers it now more necessary than ever, especially after what is happening in China.

Editorial comment: what is happening in China is the result of the regime trying to keep the number of cases down through movement restrictions rather than exposing the population, together with inoculations, to obtain herd immunity. Popular protest meant that they had to abandon quarantine measures so cases have soared. That is not the case in Spain.

Personally, being 66 this year and having had three jabs, I do not intend to have more, which appears to be the case for many people of my age.

    @Martin. With all due respect doctors never told me my child would get a milder form of a virus or
    disease when I had them vaccinated. It was accepted years ago they would not get the disease or virus at all. But the definition of vaccine protection has changed since Covid.

    Julie: OK. Vaccines work by giving you a milder form of the virus so that you body obtains anti-bodies against the one going around. Interestingly, the word “vaccine” comes from “vaca” because the first one was made from Cow Pox to build up defences against more deadlier types of pox.

    Julie: Ah, OK, got it – I’m on full-obtuse mode today it seems 😉

    @Martin My comment “The percentage pro rata to clarify” was referring to my original comment and not your article. Apologies for the confusion

    @Martin The Chief Medical advisor of the USA, Dr. Anthony Fauci telling Americans in May 2021 that if they “are vaccinated, they can feel safe that they are not going to get infected”

    Julie: The percentages given are on the number of cases reported in homes for the elderly compared to two weeks ago. It is not the percentage of residents in these homes. The pro rata (proportionality) is irrelevant unless you want the number of cases as a figure rather than a percentage.

    Julie: the vaccine was never supposed to stop you getting it; it is to make infection less severe. It’s the same as a flu jab in that sense.

    In my circle the percentage of vaccinated people testing positve for Covid is higher
    than the non vaccinated!
