New coronavirus blow to the province: cases rise in Almería
The fifth wave is already more than a reality
The so-called fifth wave seems to be more than a reality in Spain. In Andalusia, the new infections, far from decreasing, once again experience a great rise, exceeding 3,500 cases this Thursday. In Almería, they also rise, after the drop the day before, and are close to 200 positives.
According to the latest data update by the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography (IECA), the province has a total of 176 infections detected through PDIA tests (antigen test and PCR). This Wednesday there were 131 cases.
Despite these bad data, Almería is the Andalusian territory that presents the least positive in the last 24 hours in a community in which they have skyrocketed this July. Andalusia adds a total of 3,561 positives.
One more day, there is no need to regret new deaths in the province, which have remained at 839 since the start of the pandemic in March 2020.
The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) does not suffer new admissions, but six new ones have to be added to the plant in the hospitals of Almería in the last 24 hours.
Only 11 people have been discharged on this day, according to data from the IECA. Since March 2020, there are already 54,951 people from Almería who have overcome the disease.
As of this July 15, the province has a total of 1,687 active cases: it is the result of the difference between the total of confirmed cases since the beginning of the pandemic (57,477) and the difference between the total of deaths (839) and of recovered (54,951).
