Province of Almería to stay at level 1 for at least 1 week more (story from yesterday)
Almería does not pass the exam and will be at level 1 for another week
Covid indicators are not enough to go to level 0
The territorial delegate in Almería of the Ministry of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucía, Juan de la Cruz Belmonte Mena, has pronounced this morning on the epidemiological situation of the coronavirus in the province.
In statements to the media at an event on blood donations at the Campus of the University of Almeria in La Cañada, Belmonte Mena has advanced that in the early afternoon the Alerts Committee of Alto will meet in the Health Delegation Impact to assess the situation of the districts of Almería, Levante-Alto Almanzora and Poniente.
“Among the seven parameters that are analyzed, there are some” that prevent any of the three Almeria health districts from going from alert level 1 to level 0. At level 0 there are no restrictions of any kind, except the use of masks, social distance and frequent hand washing.
The delegate has pointed out that for "epidemiological security" these three districts will remain at alert level 1, so that Almería will surely be the only Andalusian province in that situation as of tomorrow, Thursday.
"We have not reached that magic figure that allows us to lower our alert level," added Juan de la Cruz Belmonte Mena, while recalling that the current cumulative incidence rate in the province remains slightly above 80 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days.
The territorial delegate of Health and Families has referred to the new protocol for the third dose of the vaccine against Covid-19, in conjunction with the flu vaccine. For those over 69 years there will be a joint campaign of inoculation, which will begin in a few days.
The Territorial Committee for High Impact Public Health Alerts in Almería meets every week at the headquarters of the Delegation directed by Juan de la Cruz Belmonte, while the sessions of the Committee of Experts at the Andalusian level usually have a monthly periodicity, they recall from the Board authorized sources.
Almeria Province now has 76.9 cases (approximately 5 fewer than yesterday) per 100,000 inhabitants based on the 14 day average (red for increase; blue for decrease)
Poniente Region now has 56.2 cases (approximately 6 fewer than yesterday) per 100,000 inhabitants based on the 14 day average (red for increase; blue for decrease)
El Ejido now has 50.1 cases (approximately 2 fewer than yesterday) per 100,000 inhabitants based on the 14 day average (red for increase; blue for decrease)
