Covid report: 9 deaths, 48 hospitalizations and 250 infections in 24 hours
A total of 725 people have been cured of the disease in this last day
This Wednesday all eyes were on the meeting of the Advisory Council for High Impact Public Health Alerts, which advises the regional Administration on the pandemic, waiting to know the decisions taken. The so-called expert committee has decided to shorten the closure period for both mobility and non-essential activity.
A decision taken, as reported by the president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, to be more efficient and adapt the restrictions to the current situation. And it is that infections continue to decline and the curve flattens in the Andalusian community.
Something that is also happening in the Almeria province, in which in the last 24 hours the new infections do not reach 250. A figure far from the more than 1,000 cases (provincial record) reached a few weeks ago. Since that peak, positives have dropped almost day after day.
But the daily data offered by the Junta de Andalucía continues to leave us very worrying data: nine more deaths and 48 hospitalizations, five of them in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), in the last day.
The report prepared by the Ministry of Health reports 242 new infections in the province, while Andalusia adds 2,971 cases. This Tuesday, the province registered 224 positives.
In Andalusia, Seville is again the province that adds the most confirmed cases on this day with 685, followed by Malaga with 639, Cádiz with 529, Granada with 321, Almería with 242, Jaén with 227, Huelva with 170 and Córdoba with 158.
In the last 24 hours the province adds 9 new deaths. Since the beginning of the pandemic, last March, 538 people with coronavirus have died in Almería.
Andalusia adds 114 deaths from coronavirus this Wednesday. Malaga is once again the province that adds the most deaths this day with 23, followed by Cádiz with 21, Seville with 17, Córdoba with 16, Huelva with 14, Almería with nine, and Jaén and Granada with seven.
The situation in Almeria hospitals continues to be very complicated: with 412 hospitalizations, 80 of them in the Intensive Care Unit. And it is that in the last 24 hours Almería has 48 admissions and five in the ICU.
A total of 725 people have been cured of the disease in this last day and there are already 26,505 recovered patients.
Cumulative week day stats from the Almería 360 site - El Ejido now has 647.1 cases (approximately 14 fewer than yesterday) per 100,000 inhabitants based on the 14 day average (red for increase; blue for decrease)
