Red Thursday: Chile scores the worst covid figures in almost 3 months with MR pushing infections | National

With the highest number of active cases since July 30, the worst Thursday since July 22, the highest PCR positivity since July 21 and the return of covid-19 patients in ICU over the 400 barrier, Chile registers this Thursday a complex day in terms of numbers associated with the pandemic. However, the situation has not yet translated into an explosive occupation of critical beds or deaths. The reason? Vaccination, which strongly reduces the chances of becoming seriously ill or dying from SARS-CoV-2.

On the morning of this Thursday, the Ministry of Health (Minsal) reported complex figures on the pandemic of covid-19 in Chile, which is rapidly resuming its expansion.

In its digital report, the portfolio announced the accumulation of 8,591 patients in the active stage of the disease, the highest since July 30 (8,593).

In addition, the Government announced the detection of 1,842 new diagnoses, the worst Thursday since July 22 (1861).

“The variation of new confirmed cases at the national level is 49% and 61% for the comparison of seven and 14 days, respectively ”, they indicated from the Minsal.

Meanwhile, the health authority calculated that three regions decreased their new cases in the last seven days and that only three did so in the last two weeks.

“Of the 1,206 new cases, 24% are diagnosed by antigen test, 13% originate from Active Case Search (BAC) and 16% of those notified are asymptomatic,” they detailed in a statement.

RM

In the regional breakdown of the official document, he highlighted the situation in the region Metropolitan, where 1,069 cases were found: 58.03% of the balance.

Thus, the area is consolidated as the second with the highest incidence rate of cases assets per 100,000 inhabitants (61.6) below Arica and Parinacota (69.8), which still suffers from outbreaks of the Delta variant.

Added to that, the MRI has 2.7 contacts traced for each case, the lowest traceability indicator in the country.

Furthermore, the MRI shows that only the 75.1% of infections have been investigated, also the lowest indicator. It is the only region below 80% on that item.

Positivity, ICU and deaths

With 2.70% PCR positivity, our country reached the highest since July 21 (2.73%) with the analysis of 57,353 samples.

In this section, the MRI stood out again with the highest CRP positivity of the country, 3.83%.

If antigen tests are added to the above, the test included the collection of 65,884 samples for this report.

For its part, ICU occupancy is 85.46% with 2,099 critical beds enabled in the system integrated by the pandemic and only 305 are free.

There is 417 hospitalized patients with covid-19, the first time that the barrier of 400 hospitalized for the disease has been exceeded since Friday, September 24.

From them, 309 are seriously ill and connected to mechanical ventilation (74.10%), noting the first time that this indicator shows again on the 300 patients, also since Friday, September 24.

Finally, with twelve new deaths, the Department of Health Statistics and Information (DEIS) updated 37.640 the total number of deaths associated with covid-19.
