Coronavirus: the Second Wave in Spain is Worse than Ever

The second wave in Spain is worse than ever, according to the local experts.

After a long lockdown and strict measures, Spain reopened the country two months ago, but it is now again the most affected country in the region.

At the moment Spain has 142 new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, and the numbers are constantly increasing in the last couple of weeks.

On the other hand, the death rates remain low, which might change in the following month.

The second wave in Spain is a result of reopening too soon, and the majority of the young population disrespecting the safety measures.
Over three-quarters of the coronavirus positive people in Spain show no symptoms.

The hospitalization rates are low, and only 3% of all the positive cases require medical treatment. The death rate so far is 0.3%.

According to Ildefonso Hernández, a professor in public health from Miguel Hernández University in Alicante, “Mortality is very low, as is the hospitalization rate. Something has changed big time, although the rise is still worrying. As long as cases are rising, we have to think that a second wave is on the way. We don’t have much time to react before September’s return to routines.”
