Latest data based on the Almería 360 articles

The downward trends continue in the average cases per day. Particularly good news for El Ejido. However I read somewhere a while ago that El Ejido had 4 times the number of cases per 100,000 to be classified as HIGH. Looking at the stats I think we now only have around 2 times the number of cases to be classified as HIGH. So still quite a long way to go.
