Salut alerts that the virus is already entering hospitals. The coronavirus is re-entering hospitals and infecting patients and healthcare professionals. This was warned this Wednesday at a press conference by the director of the Catalan Health Service (CatSalut), Gemma Craywinckel, who has specified that it is something that already happened in other waves.

The director of CatSalut has explained that, for the moment, there is no “unbridled pressure” in health centers. “We are in a phase of containment, not of mitigation,” he added.
Craywinckel has also explained that this Wednesday the vaccination of the booster doses has been opened to people from 65 to 69 years old and later, progressively, those from 60 to 65 will be vaccinated.
