Stats for the last 48 hours - 336 cases and no more deaths
The weekend leaves about 340 Covid positives in Almería
Alarms go off: the province has a total of 2,330 active cases
The alarms go off. Contagions continue to skyrocket in Andalusia and Almería is no longer alien to this trend. In recent days, new cases have skyrocketed and incidence rates skyrocket.
The province, according to the latest data update by the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography (IECA), is close to 340 positives detected through PDIA tests (antigen test and PCR). These are figures that correspond to the last 48 hours, since the Junta de Andalucía has not updated this data on Sundays for months. In total, Almería has 336 cases compared to 143 a week ago and 87 fourteen days ago (also with data from the two days of the weekend).
It should also be remembered that fewer diagnostic tests are usually done on Saturdays and Sundays.
The evolution of the pandemic continues to be more than negative in Andalusia in this new wave of the pandemic. The community registers, in these last 48 hours, a total of 4,103 infections, compared to 3,169 a week ago. Only Malaga contributes 1,509 positives.
The good news continues to come from the Almeria hospitals: there is no need to regret new deaths, or admission to the plant or the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
Faced with the high number of new infections, only 27 people have been discharged in this last day. Since March 2020, there are already 55,077 people from Almeria who have overcome the disease.
As of this July 19, the province has a total of 2,330 active cases: it is the result of the difference between the total number of confirmed cases since the beginning of the pandemic (58,246) and the difference between the total number of deaths (839) and of recovered (55,077).

The provincial incidence rate for the last 14 days rises to 246.2 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, already bordering on extreme risk by adding 44.1 points more than last Friday (the last day on which it had been updated).
