Second wave of the Covid in Almería, the worst that happens in the new normal
The people of Almería are the Andalusian municipalities with the most new cases after the state of alarm
That the new normality has not suited the epidemiological curve especially well in the province of Almería is a reality that is shown daily by the numbers offered by the Andalusian Regional Ministry of Health and Families, but when these numbers turn black on white reality is hopeless.
The days with two and three dozen new positives detected in some of the 103 municipalities of Almería alternate with others in which these are 60 or 80 daily, as has happened this week, but there are very few days in which the province has lived days with only a number of new positive of Covid-19.
This new reality that Almería is facing reveals that this is the province of Andalusia that is having the worst after the end of the state of alarm and the arrival of the new normal. Thus, since June 21, Almería has experienced exponential growth in its positives for coronaviruses, both those detected by PCR and by rapid tests, as reported in the statistics of the Junta de Andalucía.
Thus, if Almería registered a total of 533 positives for Covid-19 on the day the so-called new normal began, Sunday, June 21, and the total detected were 804, these numbers have increased substantially and currently there are 982 positives detected by PCR and 1,255 totals, which leaves an increase of 56% in total diagnosed patients and 84% in those with PCR.
The percentages that are repeated during these last days in the province of Almería have not been so noticeable in the rest of the regions of Andalusia, which in the global autonomous community has experienced since June 21 and with the latest data made public Yesterday, July 24, an increase in positives of barely 8% when it comes to total positives (from 17,762 to 19,203) and 10.9% in PCR (from 12,916 to 14,331).
The rest of the provinces of Andalusia present a similar situation to that registered in the overall autonomous community, with only Granada following in the footsteps of the province of Almería, although with very remote percentages. Thus, Granada has experienced an increase in the new positives in the 'new normality', which is around 11% in the RCPs and 15% in the global, which reveals that it is quite far from the registered figures in the neighboring province of Almería.
But, as it could not be otherwise, the increase in the total figures is due to how badly they are having it in some municipalities of the province that are victims of one of the eight outbreaks that remain active in Almería, the last of them. detected this Friday in the municipality of Cuevas del Almanzora. And it is that, the municipalities of the province stand out among all the Andalusians as the ones where the new positives have grown the most after the new normality.
Thus, among the first 10 towns that have experienced a greater number of new positives since the end of the state of alarm, on June 21, and until the last day of which there are local records of those infected by municipality, this past Friday. , July 24, four of those that appear are in the province of Almería, with Roquetas de Mar in the lead and with a clear difference from the rest of Andalusian municipalities after adding 170 new cases in the last month.
The rocky municipality is followed by El Ejido, with 72 new cases; Níjar, with 61, and the capital of Almería, with 39 positives detected during the 'new normal'. For its part, Malaga has added 166 new cases, Granada 15 and Córdoba has added 111, making them the third, fourth and fifth municipalities with the most new cases in the autonomous community. This situation is repeated when instead of attending to the global numbers registered during the new normality, attention is paid to the percentages of increase, in which the municipalities of the province of Almería occupy up to seven positions in the top 10.
Laujar de Andarax, after detecting its first seven positives this week, has become the municipality with the highest increase, 100%, with respect to the state of alarm, the same thing that occurs in Alcolea, Bédar, Carboneras and Los Gallardos. For their part, Níjar and Berja have suffered worse luck, with 61 and seven new positives, respectively, accounting for 91% and 87% of new cases with the arrival of the new normal.
I saw the headline of this article on the Olive Press site and thought it might be about the outbreaks here - however it is more about what is going to happen further along the coast
Sort of good news. As mentioned above there were 29 extra cases in the province in the last 24 hours. It is nice that for once we have more people recovering that being infected. I will not other with a full translation. You can see the stats for the whole of Andalucía in the article here:
