Stat for last 24 hours - 90 more cases and 2 more deaths
The pandemic hits Almería again with two deaths and more than 90 positives
Six new covid patients have needed to be admitted and there is one more in the ICU
Contrary to the usual trend that the coronavirus pandemic has followed in Almería, and as it happened last Sunday, the closing of the week returns to the province with a new COVID blow, which has left more than 90 new ones positive and two people have been killed in the last 24 hours, one of them an elderly man from the El Manantial de Terque residence, the fourth resident to lose his life since the center was medicalized to contain this second wave.
This is stated in the daily report of the Andalusian Regional Government's Ministry of Health and Families, which has notified that in the last 24 hours there have been 91 people who have tested positive for a PCR test in the province of Almería, less than the notified yesterday but leaving a new day with the red line of 100 cases in sight. In total, since March, there are already 8,183 PCR with a positive result.
And, as the experts have pointed out, the good data that may be reported a few days should not be taken lightly, since the pandemic is still very active in the province, where today, as noted, it has left two new deaths among patients of coronavirus, the fourth that is registered in Terque and that leaves a total of 119 deaths.
Likewise, it should be noted that this Sunday has been a worrisome day based on the data reported on the burden currently borne by Almeria hospitals, since in the last 24 hours six new patients with covid have needed to be admitted to the ward. Thus, at present, there are 39 patients admitted, 12 of them in the ICU.
In Andalusia, the hospital situation is as follows: Cádiz (117 hospitalizations, of which 25 in ICU), Córdoba (120 hospitalizations, of which 16 in ICU), Granada (115 hospitalizations, of which 15 in ICU), Huelva (22 hospitalizations, of which 2 in ICU), Jaén (87 hospitalizations, of which 14 in ICU), Malaga (163 hospitalizations, of which 25 in ICU) and Seville (335 hospitalizations, of which 47 in ICU) .
Finally, the positive news comes again in the form of cured patients, since there have been 290 this Sunday and there are already 5,653 since March.
