This is the rolling coronavirus story for Saturday 16 October 2021
Stats for the last 24 hours - 50 more cases and no more deaths
Almería continues to lead the Andalusian provinces with the most cases of covid
With 50 new infected, it is only surpassed by Malaga, which this Saturday adds 82
Despite the fact that the experts have concluded the fifth wave of the coronavirus in Andalusia more than a week ago, the daily reality maintains the concern in the province of Almería, which day after day appears on the podium of the most infected in 24 hours.
This has happened again this Saturday, when the epidemiological part of the Ministry of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucía has notified that there are 50 new positives for covid in Almería, only surpassed by the 82 that have been detected among the people of Malaga. With the fifty positives that are added today to the province's cash, since the beginning of the pandemic there are already 70,663 people from Almeria who have passed the infection or are still infected, which represents almost 10% of the total population (the 9.7% of the 727,945 inhabitants).
The negative data, although lower than in previous weeks, is also transferred to hospitals in the province, since Torrecárdenas, Poniente or La Inmaculada currently add up to a total of 21 Almeria hospitalized for covid, of which more than half ( 11), are in more serious condition in an intensive care bed. With these figures, Almería repeats among the three with the highest hospital burden, only surpassed by Malaga, with 70, of which 13 are in the ICU, and Seville, with 44 and 10, respectively.
Thus, Almería is the one with the highest proportion of ICU patients with respect to total admissions, since more than 50% of those hospitalized in the province are in Intensive Care, a figure much higher than those of the rest of the provinces, since in addition of the aforementioned Malaga and Seville, in the rest the still photo is like this: Cádiz (11 hospitalizations, of which 2 in ICU), Córdoba (16 hospitalizations, of which 5 in ICU), Granada (18 hospitalizations, of which 3 in ICU), Huelva (16 hospitalizations, of which 5 in ICU), Jaén (8 hospitalizations and none in ICU).
In the positive data section, it should be noted that Almería remains at 925 deaths from coronavirus, which is the third consecutive day without deaths from the disease. Likewise, if the recovered are treated, there are 68 notified today by Health, which leaves a total of 69,070 Almeria with the epidemiological discharge, which, in turn, means that right now the active cases (people who are infected) are 668.
