This is the rolling coronavirus story for Tuesday 9 February 2021
Stats for the last 24 hours - 224 more cases and 22 more deaths
New black day in Almería: 22 deaths in 24 hours
New infections drop to 200 cases and 900 people have to be cured
The curve of this third wave of the coronavirus is flattening, both in Almería and in the rest of the Andalusian community. And it is that the infections have dropped sharply this Tuesday.
On the other side of the balance are the deaths that this fight against Covid is leaving and Almería is experiencing a new black day, which it also shares with the rest of the Andalusian territory.
According to the latest update of the data provided by the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography (IECA), in the last 24 hours the province added a total of 22 new deaths, a figure very close to what, so far, is the record of Almeria. It was on February 2 when the province registered 26 deaths.
Since the start of the pandemic, last March, 529 people with coronavirus have died in Almería.
Almería registers 22 of the 126 deaths in all of Andalusia, a new record for the pandemic. Malaga is the province that adds more deaths this day with 28, Jaén with 19, Seville with 18, Cádiz with 14, Huelva with 11, Granada with eight and Córdoba with six.
The new cases detected in the last hours have dropped to 224, according to the IECA on its website. This Monday, February 8, 384 positives detected through PDIA tests (PCR technique or rapid antigen test) were reported.
In Andalusia, contagions drop to 1,997 cases. Seville, with 504, is the province with the highest number. They are followed by Málaga with 468, Cádiz with 454, Almería with 224, Córdoba with 132, Granada with 87, Jaén with 68 and Huelva with 60.
To this decrease in the number of cases must be added another good news: the number of people recovered. And it is that on this day 891 people have been discharged, with 25,780 people from Almeria who have overcome the disease.
The situation in Almeria hospitals continues to be worrisome, since the decrease in the number of infections has not yet been reflected in the volume of daily admissions. In fact, according to the portal of the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography, in the last 24 hours there have been 57 hospitalizations, four of them in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
Cumulative week day stats from the Almería 360 site - El Ejido now has 661.4 cases (approximately 13 fewer than yesterday) per 100,000 inhabitants based on the 14 day average (red for increase; blue for decrease)
