Great increase in cases in Almería: concern about passing the barrier of 300 positives again
The province adds one more death
Almería returns to its worst figures and, once again, surpasses the barrier of 300 new cases in the last 24 hours. A setback after the decline in infections at the beginning of the week that gave way to hope, but the reality is that the positives have almost doubled. In addition, the situation in hospitals is getting worse, which is of great concern to health workers and political leaders.
With these hard data, the province also has to mourn a new death.
Well, according to the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography (IECA), Almería registers a total of 321 positives confirmed by PCR and antigen tests this Thursday. This Wednesday they were 172, 108 on Tuesday and 75 on Monday.
Despite this significant increase, the province remains (as usual) as the second Andalusian territory with fewer cases of coronavirus registered in the last hours.
Andalusia adds a total of 3,549 cases of Covid-19 this Thursday. On this day, the province of Granada leads the increase in infections with 678 followed by Cádiz with 660; Seville with 628; Córdoba with 367; Jaén with 363; Malaga with 356; and Almería with 321. Below the 200 daily positives, only Huelva appears with 176.
Deaths fell in Andalusia, which registered a total of 54 deaths in the last 24 hours, the lowest figure in three days. Seville clearly leads the daily number of deaths from Covid-19 with 16, followed by Cádiz with eleven and Granada with ten. Below the ten are Córdoba with seven, Malaga with six, Jaén with two and Almería and Huelva with one each.
The province adds, in total, 206 deaths of people with coronavirus since the beginning of the pandemic, last March.
The daily report of the Ministry of Health of the Junta de Andalucía reports that there are currently 141 people hospitalized in the province, of which 47 are in the Intensive Care Unit. This Wednesday there were 41 patients who were in the ICU.
The good news of the day: 161 more people have been cured of the coronavirus. In total, there are already 12,109 who have overcome the disease.
