This is the rolling coronavirus story for Saturday 6 February 2021
Stats for the last 24 hours - 601 more cases and 7 more deaths
The covid leaves 7 deaths and 600 new positives, but the hospital burden falls
In the last 24 hours, more than 400 people have recovered
The mortality of the covid in the province does not find relaxation this Saturday and there are seven more patients who have lost their lives in the last 24 hours, when Almería has added 601 new people from Almería who have tested positive for a PDIA test (Test of antigens and PCR) and is close to 40,000 infected with covid since March.
Despite the fact that the epidemiological curve remains at the highest levels of the pandemic, with almost 500 deaths already, and practically replicates the data recorded in the last and dramatic days of January on a daily basis, the province's hospitals have noticed this Saturday a slight relaxation of the load of covid patients that they have to bear, because, although in the last hours there have been 27 new patients who have needed hospitalization, the total number of Almeria with coronavirus who occupy a bed in the hospitals of the province has decreased compared to the day before.
Thus, if yesterday there were 450 residents of the province hospitalized for the virus, today there are 432 who remain in bed, of which 92, one less than the day before, are in serious condition in an Intensive Care Unit . A trend that the Andalusian committee of experts expects to continue, since, as the Andalusian Government advanced yesterday, they are already thinking of lowering the measures if the downward trend of recent days continues.
Another equally encouraging data is the number of patients recovered in the last 24 hours, which in the entire province rises to 428 which already leaves a total of 24,463 from Almeria who can be happy to have received the epidemiological discharge after having completely surpassed the disease. For its part, throughout the autonomous community, more than 2,600 coronavirus patients have been recovered and 4,886 have tested positive in the last 24 hours, when another 102 Andalusians have died.
Regarding hospitals, the situation in Andalusia is as follows: Cádiz (856 hospitalizations, of which 118 in ICU), Córdoba (411 hospitalizations, of which 73 in ICU), Granada (646 hospitalizations, of which 120 in ICU), Huelva (292 hospitalizations, of which 33 in ICU), Jaén (325 hospitalizations, of which 44 in ICU), Malaga (932 hospitalizations, of which 119 in ICU) and Seville (761 hospitalizations, of which 125 in ICU).
