Stats for the last 24 hours
Almería: coronavirus infections rise but remain below one hundred
For the second day in a row, there is no need to mourn the deceased
The contagion curve in the province softens. After a particularly harsh month of August and the first days of September, the figures stabilize below one hundred cases a day.
The Junta de Andalucía, as it has done every day since practically the beginning of this pandemic in the month of March, has notified the new positives of the last 24 hours: 90 in the case of Almería. Although, there has been an increase compared to the data on Wednesday that collected 60 infections.
For the second day in a row, there is no need to mourn the deceased. A total of 112 people with Covid have lost their lives during these six months of health alert.
They soar in Andalusia
Despite these figures, which alleviate the people of Almería a bit, Andalusia once again surpasses this day, and by far, the thousand infections.
The Andalusian community adds a total of 1,484 cases of coronavirus confirmed by PCR this Thursday, 67 less than this Wednesday and the fourth largest daily rise since the start of the pandemic, according to data consulted on the website of the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography ( IECA), which counts 12 deaths in the last 24 hours, the same as Tuesday and Wednesday.
The province with the highest number of positives in the last 24 hours is Malaga again, with 383, followed by Cádiz, with 342; and Seville, with 260. Far behind are Granada, with 150; Jaén, with 115; and Córdoba, with 114. Below the hundred are Almería, with 90; and Huelva, with 30.
The highest daily number of confirmed positives by PCR are the 1,617 registered on Friday, September 18, followed by 1,551 this Wednesday and 1,536 this Tuesday, while the daily number of infections this Thursday exceeds the 1,480 positives of last Saturday 19, fourth largest to date.
The 12 deaths this Thursday, the same figure as the two previous days after the 14 last Monday, are mainly concentrated in the provinces of Granada, with six, and Seville, with three, to which are added Huelva with two and Jaén and Malaga with one each. Cádiz registers one less deceased than the previous day due to adjustments in data collection.
