The ICU of the Hospital de Poniente is almost 100% occupied, an operating room has been set up where there are two patients and another in which there is one, but even a third operating room could be put into use, as stated in the Hospital Contingency Plan and "in some cases it has been necessary to refer a patient both due to inability to be able to attend him safely to Torrecárdenas, while there are 30 patients in the ward, with the possibility that some may need to go to the ICU", said Acosta, who described the situation as “Controlled, highly monitored but tense. We are possibly at the time of most ICU occupation since the pandemic began ».

Along these lines, Acosta asked for responsibility and stressed that no patient has been transferred from any Granada Hospital to the Patient. "All the patients admitted are patients from the area, there are no transfers," he said.

The government delegate makes a new appeal: "We have to be more prudent than ever"

Bad news this Wednesday about the evolution of the pandemic in the province and its consequences. And it is that Almería has once again surpassed a new record in the last hours: that of hospitalizations.

The delegate of the Government of the Junta de Andalucía, Maribel Sánchez, in the event organized on the occasion of the International Day against Gender Violence that is celebrated this November 25, has affirmed that at present there are 143 people from Almeria admitted to the health areas of the entire province, of which 102 people are in the plant and 41 in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

"They are the worst hospitalization figures since last March 12, from which time we have been fighting Covid-19 in Almería," the representative of the Autonomous Administration highlighted.

Maribel Sánchez has acknowledged that the daily positives have dropped and that the data in health districts such as Levante-Almanzora and Almería have improved, but has stated that this improvement must be transferred to hospitals in the province, in the form of less income.

The Government delegate has been convinced that the measures adopted by the Junta de Andalucía (which since Tuesday have become even more tougher in the province by passing all of this to alert level four) will be effective, as this is showing decrease in the number of cases. "They have to spend a few days so that the restrictions are also reflected in the hospitals," he pointed out.

"Today, we have to make an appeal to Almeria society to help administrations. For many measures and restrictions that are put, it is necessary to be more prudent than ever because the virus we have to stop it together," said the Delegate of the Government of the Junta de Andalucía in Almería.
