The Ministry of Health established 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants as one of the criteria to take into account when imposing new, more forceful restrictions to stop the second wave of coronavirus in the different regions of Spain. The other two parameters that could lead the Community to take strict measures, such as decreeing the perimeter confinement of its population, are to exceed a rate of positivity in COVID-19 tests higher than 10% -This Friday it reached 20.09% – and an occupancy of covid patients in ICUs above 35%.
