Figures found left by the coronavirus pandemic in Almería this Saturday. The province has today added a new deceased in the residence of El Zapillo, number 11 so far in September and 85 globally, and has seen, in turn, how the cases detected in the last hours again experience a slight decrease until reaching 145, below yesterday, when there were 157 PCR positives.

This is not the only contrast that occurs in Almería, which on a day in which the new infections once again exceed a hundred, has seen how the total number of cured experiences a real 'high' with 449 patients who have recovered from covid-19 disease in the last 24 hours. In addition, today has been the day in which the province has once again seen hospitalized patients fall below, which stands at 98, there were 102 the day before, of which the vast majority are in the Hospital de Poniente, in El Ejido, which has 60% of those hospitalized.

But the drop in total hospitalizations has not been matched today with good data in this regard, because compared to the day before, Almería has counted 10 more patients who have needed hospitalization in the last 24 hours, among which is one that he had to be admitted to an Intensive Care Unit due to his seriousness. Thus, the ICUs remain today with the same 18 infected as it had this Friday.

For its part, in the outbreak of the El Manantial de Terque Residence (Almería) there are already 39 confirmed positives (33 residents and 6 workers).
