This is the rolling coronavirus story for Sunday 14 February 2021
Stats for the last 24 hours - 227 more cases and 3 more deaths
Hospital pressure drops on a Sunday with three deaths and fewer than 230 cases
In the last 24 hours, 40 covid patients have left the hospital, two of them from the ICU
Despite the fact that every Sunday the epidemiological part of the Ministry of Health usually arrives with a decrease or stabilization of the curve in the province, this, on Valentine's Day, the decrease in the negative data that Almería accumulated day after day sows hope for the final defeat of the intense and cruel third wave.
This is how it is after in the last 24 hours, only 227 new positives have been diagnosed both by PCR and by antigen tests, as reflected in the daily Health report, in which the province already has 42,569 positives since the beginning of the pandemic. In the same way, in the section of deaths the decrease is notorious and if yesterday there were nine deaths from covid registered, these fall today to three, which already leaves 563 deaths in total.
And, without a doubt, one of the best news comes from the Almeria hospitals, where despite continuing high pressure, the beds occupied by covid patients go down again both in the ward and in Intensive Care, since today there are 328 hospitalized , of which 77 are in serious condition and the figures for Saturday were 368 and 79, respectively.
That is to say, a decrease of 40 hospitalized in 24 hours that sows hope for next week in a province that has seen the third wave of the coronavirus gain more intensity during the month of January and the first days of February. In addition, today it is worth noting the recovery of 19 patients, which leaves, in turn, one of the few bad news this Sunday, as active cases continue to increase with the addition of another 200 infected today.
For its part, in the autonomous community of Andalusia today the 2,000 new positives have been narrowly exceeded, with 2,090 in 24 hours, and the number of deaths has been substantially reduced, since from the 120 yesterday it has been lowered to 'only '44 today. Likewise, in hospitals the situation is as follows: Cádiz (576 hospitalizations, of which 109 in ICU), Córdoba (301 hospitalizations, of which 77 in ICU), Granada (490 hospitalizations, of which 105 in ICU), Huelva (183 hospitalizations, of which 31 in ICU), Jaén (248 hospitalizations, of which 47 in ICU), Malaga (714 hospitalizations, of which 107 in ICU) and Seville (549 hospitalizations, of which 124 in ICU ).
