The fourth wave reaches Andalusia and leaves 135 new cases in Almería

We must highlight the 800 cured in the last 24 hours

The fourth wave seems to be a reality and infections are on the rise throughout Andalusia. The Andalusian community registers this Thursday, April 7, 1,767 cases in the last 24 hours and none of its provinces is below 100 new positives, touching 600 in Seville.

In the Almeria province this upward trend is also noted, of which it has already been warned on several occasions from the Junta de Andalucía.

The latest data update by the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography (IECA) shows that the province adds 135 new infections detected by PDIA tests (antigen test and PCR) in this last day. Despite this data, Almería is the second Andalusian territory with the fewest positives reported in the last 24 hours, behind Huelva, which has 126 positives.

On this Wednesday day, the province adds three deaths and there are already 761 people with Covid-19 who have lost their lives since the start of the pandemic, last March.

According to data from the IECA, eleven people have needed to be admitted to a hospital in the province, one of them in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

The positive data of the day is, one more day, in the number of people recovered: 804 in the last 24 hours. A total of 41,114 people have already defeated the virus.

According to data provided by the Provincial Delegation of Health, Almería already exceeds 40,000 immunized with the different vaccines that are being administered.

The incidence rate in the last 14 days in the province of Almería stands at 214.3 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, while that of the capital is 245.9.

Some data that comes with the echo of the beginning of a fourth wave and in a key day for Andalusia, since this Wednesday the Advisory Council of High Impact Public Health Alerts, also called the committee of experts, will meet again. In this meeting it is decided whether to maintain, harden or relax the current measures that are in force in the Andalusian territory.
