According to the latest official balance, offered by the Health Alerts and Emergencies Coordination Centre (consolidated data as of December 30), 13,684,258 confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been reported so far in Spain, which has increased by 14,221 since last week, and 117,095 is the total number of deaths, an increase of 196 in a week.

In December, there have been 1,194 recorded deaths from Covid in Spain, compared to 823 in November and 816 in October.

Spain has completed on December 27, 2022, two years since the start of the vaccination campaign against COVID-19 which, in this time, has reached a total of 39,279,291 people in the country, 93, 1% of the population older than 12 years. So far, 104,045,019 doses have been administered. The number of people with a complete regimen totals 39,202,284 people, which represents 92.9% of the population over 12 years of age.

However, when we look at the figures for the booster jabs, the percentage is much lower, with just over 50 percent of the population having had their first booster last year, and the fourth jab restricted to the older generation only at the moment.

As regards the evolution of infections in China, the Ministry of Health, after the meeting of the Alert Report and the Public Health Commission and in line with the measures announced by other countries such as Italy, the USA. and France, has reported the implementation of controls on travellers from China at Spanish airports. Among them, the presentation of a test against COVID-19 with a negative result or the complete vaccination schedule will be required, with vaccines authorised by the World Health Organisation (WHO). Likewise, in coordination with AENA, work is being done to carry out COVID-19 tests on travellers arriving from this country.

 

At the European level, in coordination with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, Spain is promoting the call within the framework of the EU for the Integrated Political Response Device to Crises (RPIC Device), to adopt a common position of measures of entry to passengers from China.
