Health released data on the evolution of the epidemic this Monday that new outbreaks continue to add infection to the ascending line. Coronavirus is the main character of the year 2020.

What is the peak of infection?
Those are the key concepts and the most repetitive phrases these days. When the infection reaches the surface, efforts to eliminate the virus will intensify and it will be seen at the end of the light tunnel. A plus is that Spain has references to China and Italy, both countries that were previously victims of COVID-19..
This is the first case of coronavirus in the world November 17, 2019 And he was a 55-year-old man living in Wuhan (Hubei), the patient was zero. From that date, China took 116 days to reach the top. A peak that arrived on March 12, about four months later. The United States is the country with the highest number of infected and dead in the world. He already has more 12, 5 Million cases And a further 262,000 deaths. More than 9 million infected India, Is the second most infected country, with more than 134,000 deaths. Brazil, for its part, is the third most infected country in the world, with a wealth of over 6 million. In addition, it adds up to more than 169,000 deaths.
What is the epidemic turn?
Without a doubt, these are the other main concepts of the disease. An epidemic curve is a graphic representation that provides information about an epidemic pattern And through it its evolution can be observed. It measures the number of cases (in this case of coronavirus) over a fixed period of time.
Fernando Simon, director of the Center for the Coordination of Health Alerts and Emergencies, explained:When we have an epidemic we wait for the case to start and slowly affect the population.. When the critical mass of the population disappears, we hope that the turn will go down. The purpose of the early investigation is to initially work to avoid that the turn follows a pattern in which cases do not increase so much and can be reached soon to be able to eliminate most of the epidemic. “
Really, Both the peak of infection and the epidemic curve are directly related. The point is that the line of curve is not so much vert, but it turns towards a flat mountain. When that curve, after marking its high peaks, sees its tendency to ed, it occurs when the peaks of infection are reached. From there Every day the number of infections starts to decrease day by day.
Although currently, The coronavirus is moving into Spain with a similar turn in early March. Specifically, the 5th to 11th week of that month, shortly before the alarm status was announced. The big difference is that New cases are getting better and faster, allowing officials to take action sooner.
