Coronavirus in Extremadura the omicron triples the work casualties in Extremadura during December
Rare is the Extremadura company, although the same could be said at the national level, which does not have a low or confined worker because of the coronavirus.The omicron variant is wreaking havoc on workers and companies.
Between December 1 and yesterday, January 5, 19 have started 19.510 Labor casualties.It is a figure that triples the average of 6.600 per month that were processed in 2019, the last exercise prior to the pandemic.
And that taking into account that 2019 was already a year in which the number of labor casualties was very high in relation to their immediate predecessors.In the previous exercises - in which there are fewer people affiliated with Social Security - 5 began.906 processes per month, in 2018, and 5.560, in 2017.In both cases far from current figures.
The casualties that are being signed in recent weeks are a very high figure if compared to the historical series.Going more in detail, it means that 540 processes of temporary disability are initiated per day, including in that calculation on Saturdays, Sundays and the festive days of this Christmas.
To establish a reference, in the first ten months of last year - the regionalized data of the Ministry of Social Security are updated until October 2021 - in Extremadura just over 7 began.200 monthly procedures to grant work leave.In that figure, those produced by common contingencies - diseases and accidents outside the workplace -, professional contingencies caused in the job and contagions of Covid, for example - and those of self -employed workers, are added so much, and those of self -employed workers, theAutonomous.Since the arrival of the omicron variant, the volume of labor casualties has multiplied by 2.5.
The more than 19.500 temporary disabilities processed in the last month and five days in Extremadura are almost 5.300 more than in the same period a year ago (14.220).This assumes that work casualties in recent weeks have increased more than 37% compared to those registered in December 2020 and the first five days of January 2021.It is a very significant increase and more if one takes into account that just a year ago Extremadura was immersed in the third wave of the pandemic and arrived at New Year's Eve overcoming what at that time were maximum daily infections.
That is, the health situation is repeating in the region with twelve months away.However, the progress of vaccination and the least aggressiveness, despite being more contagious, of the omicron variant are facilitating that the number of hospital and death revenues because of the COVID is much lower on this occasion on this occasion.If you look further back.Until before pandemic.Social Security data show how Coronavirus has affected the Extremaduran work environment.
During the last weeks of the year and what we have of 2022 in the region, 540 daily casualties have been processed
A test is in the reasons why work casualties are necessary.The majority that are produced by common contingencies, which are located at 4.800 average per month until October 2021.It is a figure very similar to that of the 2019 Global, although in 2020 - with confinement, the paralysis of economic activity and ERTE - these casualties were reduced by 10%.
The main change has been recorded in professional contingencies, mainly because COVID received consideration of occupational disease when processing the casualties.This has caused your number to be shot both in 2020 and 2021.The average of each year exceeds 1.700 per month, when in the previous exercises it did not reach 1.100.Where there are hardly any variations are in the case of the temporary disabilities requested by the self -employed.Since 2017 they move around 650 per month.
Las contingencias profesionales crecen un 60% con la covid
The coronavirus is responsible for an average of 700 work casualties per month in Extremadura.
Health authorities decided that COVID was considered a job disease when granting the decline.Therefore, it has gathered the statistics of professional contingencies.
This section, which registered around a thousand temporary disabilities per month until 2019 - with a slight increase as the number of social security affiliates grew every year - went on to be around 1.800 in 2020 and during the first ten months of 2021 it reached 1.737.That is, the Coronavirus has meant an increase of 60% of the work casualties caused by professional contingencies in the region.
