A 104-year-old Spanish woman managed to recover from Covid-19

A 104-year-old Spanish managed to recover from Covid-19, after being hospitalized for 14 days in a Madrid hospital. His name is Elena, and is officially the longest-lived person to survive the virus. Last year she was admitted for influenza A and this year she overcame the serious illness that has made no distinction of race, status or age.

Elena was born two years before the appearance of the Spanish flu, lived two world wars and even the Spanish Civil War. So not only has he age, he also has a history.

The hospital medical staff stressed that it was a hopeful case during this second wave of infections. And that having an advanced age is one of the main risk factors in patients infected by Covid-19.

How is Spain experiencing its second wave of Covid-19 infections?

In the last hours, the country has notified 21,309 new cases of Covid-19, of which 2,448 were from the last day. These figures represent an increase compared to 17,681 the previous weekend, as reported by the Ministry of Health.

The deaths of 389 people have also recently been confirmed, for a total of 646 in the last week. While the new patients admitted to the hospital on the eve were 840, according to data provided by the Europa Press agency.

Among the most affected regions of the country are the Basque Country, Andalusia, Catalonia, Galicia, Asturias, the Balearic Islands, Aragon, the Canary Islands and Madrid.

Therefore, the Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, announced that the vaccination day against Covid-19 will begin in three weeks. Time after Pfizer and BioNTech vaccine distribution goes live (January 4th or 5th). To do this, the European Medicines Agency must approve its use on December 29.

How will the Covid-19 vaccine be distributed?

The minister pointed out that the arrival of the vaccine will be progressive and assured that Spain has all the necessary capacities for when the doses arrive. The goal is to immunize the population with all the necessary guarantees.

Illa highlighted a message of tranquility, by ensuring that there will be vaccines against Covid-19 for everyone and even there will be plenty.

As a first objective, the health authorities will vaccinate health workers and the elderly who live in residences. The idea is to reach the vaccination period against Covid-19 with a cumulative incidence of a maximum of 150 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

The importance of arriving at the vaccination day against Covid-19 with a low incidence is that the humidity of the vaccine is generated three weeks after the second dose has been applied.

For his part, the emergency director Fernando Simón, indicated that there is an increase in the number of cases due to the relaxation of restrictive measures. So he urged citizens not to neglect themselves, since there would be the risk of a third wave in January.
