The most sensitive variable corresponds to the number of patients who have required hospitalization, a record total of 77 (4 over the previous day). A total of 10 COVID-19 patients are in intensive care.

The number of hospitalizations has been growing in the past two weeks, health authorities fearing an eventual collapse of health services if the trend continues unabated.
