This is the rolling coronavirus story for Friday 6 November 2020.
Published on Saturday 7 November 2020 as I was busy yesterday.
Stats for the last 24 hours - 257 more cases
The positives skyrocket in Almería
The province registers 257 new cases this Friday
The evolution of the pandemic continues to be very worrying in Andalusia. Infections throughout the community rose to 4,627 this Friday. The Board, headed by its president, Juanma Moreno, has been warning for days that if the positives do not drop, more restrictive measures will be taken. This Thursday we knew the day on which they will be decided: this Sunday at the meeting of the expert committee. The closing of bars is already on the table.
And it is that the coronavirus does not give truce to any Andalusian province. In the case of Almería, this has seen how in two days the infections by Covid have increased considerably. If at the beginning of the week it was close to a hundred, this Friday the positives again far exceed 200 new cases. Today's 257 positives are dangerously close to the 300 (the provincial record in this pandemic) on October 29.
Despite the high number of infections, Almería (as happened this Thursday) is the second Andalusian province with fewer cases.
Seville repeats as the territory of Andalusia with more daily infections confirmed by PCR and antigen tests, adding 1,200 in 24 hours - higher than the positives of the previous day-, followed by Granada with 1,123, Córdoba with 515, Malaga with 511, Cádiz with 393, Jaén with 386, Almería with 257 and Huelva with 242.
The situation is very worrying in some municipalities of the province, to the point that the mayors of the Nacimiento River region have asked their neighbors to confine themselves to stop contagion.
The positive news of the day is that Almería, after several days, does not add new deaths this Friday, despite the hard data recorded in the Andalusian community, in which 60 people infected with Covid have lost their lives in the last 24 hours. This is the second consecutive day in which 60 deaths have been added, this being the highest figure in the second wave.
The province of Jaén is by far the one that has added the most deaths, with 24 deaths, followed by Seville with 13 and Granada with eleven. Below the ten are the rest of the provinces with six in Cádiz, four in Córdoba and two in Malaga. Almería and Huelva are the only provinces that have not registered deaths.
The daily part of the Junta de Andalucía reports 24 new hospitalizations in Almería, where there are currently 111 admissions, of which 23 are in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
A total of 142 more Almeria have already overcome this disease and there are already 8,915 recovered since the beginning of the pandemic.
