Possible perimeter closures coming up due to high rates of cases

Six locations exceed the 1,000 rate and could suffer perimeter closure

The Committee of Experts will decide on Wednesday what to do since they have less than 5,000 inhabitants

Paterna de Rivera (Cádiz), Olvera (Cádiz), Isla Cristina (Huelva), Punta Umbría (Huelva), Mengíbar (Jaén), Nerja (Málaga) Campillos (Málaga), Tocina (Seville) and El Cuervo (Seville) are the Andalusian municipalities with more than 5,000 inhabitants that this Monday exceed the rate of 1,000 cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days set by the Board as a criterion for decreeing the perimeter closure and curfew with judicial endorsement, two days after Provincial public health alert committees meet to review current restrictions by municipalities.

The Junta de Andalucía, at the proposal of the Regional Committee of High Impact on Public Health (Committee of Experts), has proposed the limitation of mobility at night between 2:00 and 7:00 in those municipalities with more than 5,000 inhabitants that present a cumulative incidence at 14 days of more than 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

This proposal is validated by the Territorial Committees of High Impact on Public Health every Wednesday, once all the epidemiological parameters have been evaluated. In the case of municipalities with less than 5,000 inhabitants, a specific evaluation will be made. This measure must be subsequently ratified by the Superior Court of Justice of Andalusia (TSJA).

According to the latest data updated by the Ministry of Health and Families, consulted by Europa Press, 56 municipalities exceed the rate of 1,000 cases in 14 days, of which a total of three have more than 5,000 inhabitants, in this case they are Paterna de Rivera (1,118.65), Olvera (1,103.94), Isla Cristina (1,037.72), Punta Umbría (1,022.47), Mengíbar (1,030.31), Nerja (1,002.65), Campillos (1,180, 4), Tocina (1,085.81) and El Cuervo (1,109.06).

For now, the municipalities with more than 5,000 inhabitants limited to night mobility are Marbella (Málaga), Estepona (Málaga) and Montoro (Córdoba). However, all three have left behind the threshold that marks these restrictions.

Specifically, Marbella has stopped exceeding the threshold, going from 1,038.4 on Wednesday to 916.5 this Monday. The same has happened with Estepona, going from 1,026.7 to 956.9, and with Montoro, which has dropped from 1,086.8 to 903.9.
