This is the rolling coronavirus story for Saturday 10 October 2020.
Some background info about cases in the province
There are 23 municipalities that have not registered any positive and 22 that do not have active cases now
The summer felt especially bad for the province of Almería and this is shown by the fact that if in August there were more than thirty municipalities that remained free of coronavirus, as of October 10 the figure has been lowered to only 23 of the 103 in Almeria geography. Since the pandemic was decreed in March, the incidence of covid-19 has been increasing in provincial territory and has done special damage in the municipalities with the largest population, therefore, if the data published by the Ministry is taken into account of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucía, none of the 23 municipalities that still wins the battle against the disease exceed 1,000 residents.
This is collected by the web portal of the Institute of Statistics and Cartography of Andalusia, where the town of Ohanes, in the Alpujarra of Almería, has once again appeared as a territory free of coronavirus after up to two positives were diagnosed among its neighbors, although they were finally withdrawn by the delegation of Health in Almería. For its part, this list has dropped Benizalón this past week, which added its first positive after more than six months without evidence of the pandemic among its neighbors.
In this way, together with the Alpujarra municipality, the towns of Alboloduy, Alcudia de Monteagud, Alicún, Benitagla, Lucainena de las Torres, Nacimiento, Olula de Castro, Santa Cruz de Marchena, Santa Fe also appear on the list of 'free covid' from Mondújar, Senés, Tahal, Turrillas, Velefique, Bacares, Bayarque, Chercos, Cóbdar, Laroya, Somontín ,, Suflí, Bayárcal and Paterna del Río.
According to data from the Institute of Statistics, none of these municipalities have 1,000 inhabitants and only three of them, Albodoluy, Lucainena de las Torres and Ohaes, have more than 500 residents. A reality that translates into that of the almost 718,000 people who are registered in the 103 municipalities of Almeria, only a little more than 13,800 people, the residents who live in the areas, are still not 'affected' by the pandemic, directly or indirectly. 23 villages free of coronavirus.
One of those admitted is in serious condition in the ICU and 105 patients have recovered
The epidemiological curve of the coronavirus continues its rise in Almería, although today, contrary to what happened in the last two days, it has not exceeded the barrier of 100 positives detected in 24 hours by adding 94 infected since those notified yesterday, Friday, such and as collected in the daily report provided by the Andalusian Regional Government's Ministry of Health and Families.
Despite not having exceeded the red line of one hundred cases, which leaves the total of positives detected by PCR at 8,678, the pandemic continues its advance in the province and today has left six new patients admitted to the three hospitals in Almeria, Torrecárdenas , Poniente and La Inmaculada, one of them in serious condition that has needed to be admitted to an Intensive Care Unit.
With this new increase in hospitalized patients, the province currently maintains a hospital load of 22 admissions, 13 of them in the ICU, the one with the least in Andalusia, as the situation in the other seven provinces is as follows: Cádiz (113 hospitalizations , of which 21 in ICU), Córdoba (137 hospitalizations, of which 17 in ICU), Granada (149 hospitalizations, of which 20 in ICU), Huelva (39 hospitalizations, of which 4 in ICU), Jaén ( 97 hospitalizations, of which 15 in the ICU), Malaga (167 hospitalizations, of which 20 in the ICU) and Seville (289 hospitalizations, of which 41 in the ICU).
Yes, we must celebrate that Almería has not seen any covid patient die in the last 24 hours, a trend that has been repeated since last Sunday, October 4, those who have been the last two deaths so far were notified, that they raised the total to the current 121. In Andalusia, on the other hand, up to 23 deaths have been reported today, most of them, 11, in the province of Malaga, followed by Seville, with six.
Likewise, another good figure that the daily health report leaves today is that of patients who have completely overcome the disease, which, from 09:30 hours on Friday to the same time today, have been 105, which leaves the total of these since the month of March at 6,558.
