40 cases in Almería in the day in which Andalusia returns to medium risk

The alarms go off before the possible arrival of the sixth wave

Daily infections continue to increase in Andalusia, as does its incidence rate that already places the community at medium risk of contagion from coronavirus.

The alarms go off again at the possibility of a sixth wave, mainly among the unvaccinated. In the coming days, the Board will once again meet its committee of experts to analyze the current situation, at the gates of the December macro-bridge and the imminent arrival of Christmas.

The positives of the province are maintained, although they experience a decrease compared to the day before. The Institute of Statistics and Cartography of Andalusia (IECA) reports on this Wednesday a total of 41 cases detected in Almería through the PDIA tests (antigen test and PCR), when 60 infections were reported yesterday.

Andalusia registers this November 17 a total of 564 coronavirus infections in 24 hours, a figure higher than the 487 infections on Tuesday.

Its incidence rate increases 3.4 points in 24 hours, so it is found in 52.3 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, thus leaving behind the low risk of contagion. This is the highest record since September 28.

The Almeria province is this day among the Andalusian territories with fewer cases. Malaga and Seville are the provinces that register the most infections with 138 each, followed by Cádiz with 63, Córdoba with 59, Huelva with 52, Almería with 41, Granada with 39 and Jaén with 34.

Deaths

Andalusia reports four new deaths in the last 24 hours, none of them in the province. In Almería, 933 people with Covid have died since the start of the pandemic.

Four people have needed to be admitted to a hospital in the province, two to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

In the last 24 hours, 25 people from Almeria have defeated Covid-19. There are already 70,118 people who have overcome the coronavirus since March 2020.

Last 14 days

Incidence rates continue to rise. The province is this Wednesday at 58.9 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, compared to 57.4 the day before.

The situation of the health districts of the province is as follows: Almería has 82 infections (82.6 had yesterday), Poniente has 49.5 (46.5 this Tuesday) and Levante-Alto Almanzora, 29.4 cases per 100,000 inhabitants (26.1 in the 24 hours before).

The capital of Almería currently has an incidence rate of 93.9 infections in the last 14 days per 100,000 inhabitants, while the day before it was 91.4 cases.

 

Almeria Province now has 58.9 cases (approximately 2 more than the last value) per 100,000 inhabitants based on the 14 day average (red for increase; blue for decrease)

Poniente Region now has 49.5 cases (approximately 8 more than the last value) per 100,000 inhabitants based on the 14 day average (red for increase; blue for decrease)

Looks like Spain might be changing the rules about how to calculate alert levels. To compensate for more people having been vaccinated now.
