Almería exceeds the red line of one hundred cases in a record day in Andalusia

Almería is the only province that has not added deaths in the last 24 hours

The pandemic is triggered in Andalusia, where this Friday a new record is recorded in this second wave of the pandemic, and the province of Almería accompanies these figures, by exceeding the red line of one hundred cases of coronavirus.

The Andalusian community has added 2,928 positives confirmed by PCR and antigen tests on October 16, according to data consulted by the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography (IECA), which accounts for 29 deaths in 24 hours, the third highest number of deaths in this wave.

After several days below one hundred positives, the province increases considerably the new cases and reaches 112 this Friday. Despite these figures, Almería is still the second Andalusian territory with fewer positives registered in the last 24 hours: only Huelva is behind.

On this day there are two Andalusian provinces that have registered more than 700 infections: Seville once again leads the increase in affected people, with 788 cases, followed by Granada with 735. Jaén has added 458 cases, Córdoba 312 and Málaga 263. Below of 200 cases, Cádiz appears with 170, Almería with 112 and Huelva with 90.

Almería is the only province that has not added deaths in the last 24 hours. Of the 29 deaths registered this Friday throughout Andalusia, nine have been recorded in Seville, five in Córdoba and Granada, four in Cádiz, three in Huelva, two in Malaga and one in Jaén.

Of the least affected
Despite this increase in the number of cases, the province remains, along with Huelva, among the areas least affected by the virus in this second wave.

After the initial rebound that caused the logical alarm in the province by leading for weeks the daily records of detected cases, hospitalizations and admitted patients, the evolution is at least much better than in other Andalusian provinces.

Despite this, events such as the Benahadux party, in which 34 people were evicted (who shared a hookah, did not have a mask and did not keep a safety distance) set off alarms among political and health officials at the appearance of a possible outbreak.
