This is the rolling coronavirus story for Tuesday 11 August 2020.
Stats for the last 24 hours in the province - "there are 91 new positives detected in the province, 70 of them in the Poniente and half, 45, in a single municipality, El Ejido"
Almería adds two new coronavirus outbreaks and the Levante reaches 85 cases
The two new outbreaks are presented in the capital, with 5 positives, and in the Poniente, with 6
More than 90 positives and two new outbreaks detected in the capital and in the West. This is the reality that the coronavirus leaves today in the province, according to data provided by the Ministry of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucía, which has notified that Almería adds two new outbreaks, with five positive in the case of the capital and with six in the Poniente, and that the cases in the nightlife of the Levante have skyrocketed, which already has 85 positives, 13 more than yesterday.
With the two new outbreaks detected today, Almería already has 12, of which 11 are under investigation and one of them has passed to the control phase, the one located in Levante-Alto Almanzora and accumulating 14 positives associated with the same patient zero. For their part, the other 11 that are in the investigation phase, that is, that are not under control, have a total of 160 positives for Covid-19 associated with these outbreaks.
In this way, the 12 outbreaks that remain active in Almeria, half of them are located in the district of Almería capital, which has six active outbreaks with five, five, seven, four, six and 19 positives. The second territory with the most outbreaks is Poniente, which has three, all of them still in the investigation phase and that add up to a total of 18 associated positives. This figure is also worrying because the West maintains a total of 433 active cases at the moment, that is, patients who are still sick from Covid-19, which leaves a total of 415 infected in this Almeria region that are not related to no outbreaks, but rather isolated cases.
The one with the nightlife
Finally, the Levante district has two outbreaks under investigation and one under control. In this region, the focus detected in nightclubs is of particular concern, which already accumulates a total of 85 positives, 13 more than the day before, when there were 72 positives associated with the same zero patient located in nightlife. Regarding the global of Andalusia, the community already has 118 active outbreaks among the eight provinces.
This is reflected in the daily part that Health offers and in which, as LA VOZ has already advanced, there are 91 new positives detected in the province, 70 of them in the Poniente and half, 45, in a single municipality, El Ejido. For its part, hospitalized patients are now 51, of which 12 are in the ICU, again the highest figure in all of Andalusia, where the hospital burden by provinces is currently as follows: Cádiz (11 hospitalizations, of the than 4 in ICU), Córdoba (11 hospitalizations, of which 2 in ICU), Granada (10 hospitalizations, of which 1 in ICU), Huelva (3 hospitalizations, of which 1 in ICU), Jaén (4 hospitalizations and none in ICU), Malaga (22 hospitalizations, of which 3 in ICU) and Seville (9 hospitalizations and 1 in ICU).

Monday was just a mirage. Almería has suddenly recovered the path of unstoppable growth of the coronavirus curve and has doubled in just 24 hours the positives detected this Monday, which were 45, compared to the 91 that have been reported today in the latest daily report of the Ministry of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucía, where Almería already has 2,114 positives detected by PCR, 2,387 if rapid tests are also counted, after yesterday exceeding 2,000 positives for coronavirus in the province.
The dramatic figures of last week are revived again in a province in which, once again, it is the Poniente region that comes out the worst, with more than 75% of the new cases detected this Tuesday, which translates into adds 70 of the 91 positives that have been reported today throughout the province, which, again, breathes with some tranquility when seeing that the two deaths registered on Saturday after more than two months without the virus taking any lives are not repeated during the last two days.
What does happen again is the position of El Ejido and Roquetas de Mar as the municipalities that are experiencing the worst in this wave of outbreaks in the province of Almería, since these two municipalities have added 59 positives in the last day , 45 in the ejidense and 14 in the roquetero.
