On this Palm Sunday receiving good news is appreciated. There have been weeks of negative news, thousands of deaths and hospitalizations due to the coronavirus, but the other side of the coin is beginning to be seen, as reported by the European media.
This weekend we have awakened with much more encouraging figures that objectively show the slowdown in sick and deceased cases. Only in Spain last Saturday night the number of deceased fell to 674, the lowest number in ten days, as reflected in the Spanish newspaper El País.
The same goes for hospital admissions. "The number of hospitalized today is somewhat lower than yesterday, and yesterday's was somewhat lower than the day before, and the same is true in ICUs," explained María José Sierra, deputy director of the Alerts Coordination Center and Health Emergencies in Spain.
Its neighboring country on the shores of the Mediterranean, Italy, registers 525 fatalities in 24 hours, the lowest number of deaths in the last three weeks. It is the second country, after China, to receive the hard blow of the Covid-19. It took four weeks in confinement to see a halo of light.
No less important is to highlight the number of patients who have returned home and have won the battle against this terrible virus. In Italy almost 22 thousand people infected with coronavirus have come forward and in Spain 30 thousand, very high numbers that provide hope in this recovery process.
The situation in the United States, one of the most affected foci currently, continues to be alarming, as it was in Italy, Spain and China. The key to a positive evolution in the areas most attacked by the virus in the previous weeks, in addition to the use of gloves and masks, has been social distancing and confinement at home.
