18th March 2020 Covid-19 Coronavirus update.

Sanitat announced yesterday that there are 304 cases of Covid-19 Coronavirsus in Alicante province. 48 are in hospital with 18 being in ITU (intensive care unit). There are 12 public hospitals in Alicante. This would mean on average each hospital would have 4 cases of Covid-19 with on average 1.5 patients in the ITU. This means the service at present is far from being overrun.

Yesterday the British government also suggested social distancing, advising people to work from home if possible and not to go out to pubs ,restaurants and theatres etc, and for the over 70’s to stay at home. However there will be no legal requirement to do so.
