Stats for the last 48 hours - 104 more cases and no more deaths
Alarms go off: Almería exceeds one hundred new infections
Five times fewer new cases were detected last weekend
The alarms go off due to the strong growth of new infections in the last week. Almería and Andalusia, in general, see the daily cases of Covid-19 increase, as well as their incidence rates. The situation is beginning to worry the community due to the possible arrival of the feared sixth wave of the coronavirus, coinciding with the arrival of the cold and at the gates of the macro-bridge in December.
If Almería was located seven days ago among the Andalusian provinces that added less infections in a weekend, this Monday it turns around and is placed among the territories with the most positive in the last 48 hours, exceeding one hundred.
The Institute of Statistics and Cartography of Andalusia (IECA) notifies this Monday, November 22, a total of 104 infections detected in Almería through the PDIA tests (antigen test and PCR). A figure that corresponds to two days, since the Board does not update data on the evolution of the pandemic on Sundays.
This is a large rise in the number of infections if this data is compared with that of a week ago, when only 21 positives were reported in the province.
This significant rise in the number of new cases is worrisome, since it must be taken into account that fewer diagnostic tests are carried out on weekends.
A rise that has also been reflected in the Andalusian community, which this Monday, November 22, registers 782 infections, compared to 338 a week ago. Its incidence rate in the last 14 days is 71 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, the highest since September 20 when 72.9 were registered.
In the autonomous community, two deaths were reported this Monday in the province of Malaga. In Almería, 934 people with Covid-19 have lost their lives since the start of the pandemic, in March 2020.
No person has needed to be admitted to Almería in the last 48 hours, as in the Intensive Care Unit. Currently, the province has 16 hospitalized in Almeria health centers, of which 9 are in the ICU (three more patients than seven days ago).
Regarding people who have overcome the disease, 17 have done so in the last two days. There are already 70,237 people from Almería who have overcome the virus.
Almeria Province now has 82.4 cases (approximately 14 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 76.7 cases (approximately 17 more than the last value) per 100,000 inhabitants based on the 14 day average (red for increase; blue for decrease)
El Ejido now has 63.3 cases (approximately 10 more than the last value) per 100,000 inhabitants based on the 14 day average (red for increase; blue for decrease)
