Long queues to get vaccinated

Long queues to get vaccinated.

15-12-2021Alejandro Garcia

Spain's coronavirus infection rate rose above 500 cases per 100,000 people on Friday, crossing over the threshold considered "very high risk" by the Health Ministry and more than doubling since the start of December.

On Friday the infection rate, or incidence, as measured over the preceding 14 days, was 511 cases per 100,000, up 38 points on Thursday's 473. There were 33,359 new infections and 41 deaths according to Health Ministry data.

Roughly 80% of Spain's population of 47 million has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and some 10 million have received booster shots.

On Thursday Spain approved booster vaccines for people aged over 40.

Spain has recorded 5.46 million cases and 88,708 deaths since the pandemic began.

@Dan, Mark. Are you both having Christmas Dinner with Chris Witty? I bet that will be fun 😏

But an idiot with a platform is dangerous.

People might actually believe some of the rubbish he comes out with. Rather than listening the the experts. The next few weeks will show why we were right to start taking this seriously - numbers are going to skyrocket.

James is just an idiot who found a podium here. Who cares what he says. His comments just confirm his total lack of knowledge, other than what is found on conspiracy websites.

James - I don't understand why you refuse to look at actual scientific journals proving all of these misinformation campaigns on effectiveness of vaccines? Also why you must continue the fear mongering of Omicron. Why can't it be the godsend we have all been looking for with little to no severity? There is already much data on the subject. Just breath, all will be ok and this will be simply another thing human bodies will deal with.

Good old James spreading misinformation yet again.

If you listen to the experts Dan, we will be in lockdown forever.

@Dan I'm at home in quarantine with Omicron. You feel tired and have a headache for a day. I'm locked for a headache. Dan you are being lied To by media and politicians. Will you ever except that, even when the figures don't add up. You don't need to be vaccinated for Omicron. And Dan you carry on being scared of your own shadow not wanting this to be over and to live in perpetual fear.

Ignore James who repeatedly proves himself to not have a clue about the risk Omicron presents.

Get your booster, wear a mask, listen to the experts.

The Omicron variant is a Christmas present to the whole world and is our way out of the last 2 years to normal times. Don't be scared of Omicron.
