Quarantine slows pandemic spread

Ministry of Health reports show a reduction  in covid-19, deaths, hospitalizations, active cases and percentage of positivity The number of hospitalized patients fell, in the past week,  after being on the rise for 10 weeks.


.The last epidemiological week (January 24 to 30) of the Covid-19 disease closed with   258 fewer patents, hospitalized


Arturo Rebollón, epidemiologist and public health specialist, said  that the quarantine slowed the acceleration of the pandemic


Ii the fourth week of the current year, 9,602 new infections were reported, which represents 3,980 fewer cases than those reported in the previous week (January 17 to 23) when they reached 13,582 cases.


During the first epidemiological week ( January 3 to 9), the Ministry of Health) reported 25,008 new infections.


Rebollón highlighted that the daily average number of cases was reduced to 1,372, which at the beginning of the year was 3,300. "This may be a paradoxical response due to fewer tests," he said.


Rebollón's explanations about the decrease in tests are: the fewer patients, the fewer people seek tests or there are limitations in the laboratories that do not allow more tests to be processed in the appropriate time.


The scenario is favorable for the reopening of commercial activities in the coming days, as the indicators show a decrease.
