February 9th According to a report by the European Union News Agency on February 9th, a 16-story apartment in Bilbao, Spain, recently broke out in which 62 families lived.
Its Basque Regional Health Department confirmed that as of February 8, 33 people had been diagnosed, including 6 deaths.
According to reports, Sagarduy, a Basque health official, said that the first infected person in the building was on January 9.
Since then, on January 21 and January 23, an 85-year-old woman living on the ninth floor of the apartment and her 50-year-old son died at home due to COVID-19.
According to the report, Azcaraga, the administrator of the building, said that on January 24, the property of the apartment was notified and disinfected the public areas of the apartment on January 26 and 27.
But it is obvious that it is more than 10 days since the first infected person appears, and all households may have been exposed to the public environment where the virus exists.
The outbreak was once again proven to be effective with the tracking network, Sagardui said, “when we saw the first coincidence, we immediately screened and increased vigilance.”
According to expert analysis, the two elevators in the building may be vectors of the virus, because the elevators are poorly ventilated and have a closed space.
Also, the possibility of the virus spreading through the elevator button is also very high.
