A “slight improvement” is reported in the latest epidemiological report in Guayaquil, in relation to the incidence of new coronavirus infections per day, which rose to 130 this week, compared to 170 cases in previous weeks.
In the report dated April 26 to May 2, 2021, there is a decrease in the incidence of suspected cases that went from 13.9 to 11.1 per 10,000 inhabitants.
The number of confirmed cases of covid-19 went from 3.8 to 3.2 per 10,000 inhabitants, according to the Municipality’s Technical Board of Health.
However, the occupancy of the city’s Intensive Care Units (ICU) remains at 100%, both in public and private hospitals.
«ICUs are still high. They will take time to free themselves. The hospital beds are slowly being released “, reported epidemiologist Carlos Farhat, coordinator of the Mesa.
As for deaths per day caused by the coronavirus, it went from 32 to 28. “In other words, all the behavioral parameters indicate that there is a respite and a slight improvement.”
“We can say that this is a trend. To say that this is a trend and that we are winning the battle we have to keep analyzing it over time. In a week or two if we see that the numbers are going down then it means that we would be on the right track, “said Farhat.
