Stats for the last 24 hours - 65 more cases and 2 more deaths
Two more deaths from Covid in a day in which infections decrease
A total of 260 people from Almeria have overcome the disease in the last 24 hours
September begins with an eye on the start of the new school year and with the search for the long-awaited herd immunity. August leaves us with the worst possible data of the pandemic: 54 people with Covid have died in these 31 days. And it is that the Institute of Statistics and Cartography of Andalusia (IECA) communicates this Wednesday, September 1, two new deaths in the province in the last 24 hours.
Despite this bad news, Almería sees the number of infections fall one more day and records the best data in almost two months. According to data provided by the Ministry of Health of the Junta de Andalucía, the province added in this last day a total of 65 infections detected through the PDIA tests (antigen test and PCR). You have to go back to July 8 to have a figure lower than this, when 41 positives were registered.
Almería is the second Andalusian province with the fewest cases, behind Huelva, which totals 61. Andalusia drops a thousand cases for the second day in a row by reporting 949 infections today.
The harshness of the pandemic is reflected in the number of people with coronavirus who have lost their lives since the start of the health alert, in March last year. In total, 901 Almeria with Covid have died.
The IECA reports four new admissions to hospitals in the province, two of them in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
A total of 260 people from Almería have overcome the disease in the last 24 hours. Since March 2020, 62,466 people have already defeated the coronavirus.
Active cases continue to decline in the province, standing at 4,915. This is the result of the difference between the total number of confirmed cases since the beginning of the pandemic (68,282) and the difference between the total number of deaths (901) and those recovered (62,466).
