coronavirus updates Spain

30th December 2021 - Spain will shorten the mandatory isolation period for people who test positive for Covid-19 from ten to seven days, the country's health ministry said on Wednesday.

If the person in question has no symptoms by the seventh day. No PCR or antigen test will be required before that person can return to normal life. Spain is the first country in the European Union to adopt this measure.

What should I do if I suspect I have COVID-19 symptoms, or if I’ve been in contact with someone infected?

First, avoid all physical contact with other people. Next, inform the local healthcare authorities immediately via the information helpline.  The number for the Valencian region is 900 300 555

Stay at home for 10 days if you have either:

  • a high temperature
  • a new continuous cough

This will help to protect others in your community while you are infectious.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

The Ministry of Health has enabled a website ( https://coronavirusregistro.san.gva.es/sipcovid19 ) to request a medical appointment in the event of having symptoms related to coronavirus .  If "in the last 14 days" you have at least one of the following symptoms , which it did not previously have: cough, difficulty to breathe, sore throat, a temperature of more than 37ºC  ".

On the Health website, citizens must enter their information , including the SIP number and date of birth , in addition to a contact telephone number . "Access to request an appointment if you have symptoms related to coronavirus is already underway on the website of the Ministry of Health . After registering with SIP and date of birth, a professional will contact the patient,"

Health Service enables the phone number 900 36 22 36.

The Ministry of Health and the Colleges of Pharmacists of the three provinces have enabled the telephone number 900 36 22 36 so that those in a  more vulnerable situation can request home deliveries. This phone collects the patient's personal data, along with the number of his health card (SIP card). The information is sent to the College of Pharmacists of the corresponding province. From there it is sent to the nearest pharmacy to the patient's home so that the medicines can be delivered within 24 or 48 hours

Coronavirus updates Spain Latest Figures

30th December 2021 - The risk of hospitalization due to Covid-19 is currently lower, but infections are beating all records and that will still put pressure on the healthcare system.

ICU admissions are at 44% of the worst peak in January 2021. Spain is currently immersed in a different wave of the coronavirus pandemic. On the one hand, infections are still spiking and are a reason for concern. On the other, there is ever-increasing evidence that the new omicron strain is causing lower levels of serious illness, in particular among the vaccinated.

These two forces will determine the severity of the current wave. While each infection currently leads to fewer hospitalizations, the multiplication of these infections could see admissions spike, leaving thousands of people sick, and once again putting great stress on Spain’s healthcare system. Avoiding this depends on at least one piece of good news being proven: either omicron is much milder than the previously dominant strain, delta, or that it causes shorter waves and cases will soon start to fall again. For now, the available data show record high rates of infection in Spain.

In the last seven days, more cases than ever have been registered during the pandemic – 60% up on the worst situation in January 2021. The speed with which these cases are rising is showing no sign of letting up, and that velocity is the main reason to remain on alert. While infections continue to rise, omicron will remain a potential threat.
