Vaccinations in the province

Google translation:

Almería closes the week of records with more than 22,500 new vaccinated

Less than 2% have received at least one dose, 145,250, and 41,582 have the 2 guidelines

Last Friday the vaccination campaign experienced one of its most fruitful days in the province of Almería after more than 5,000 people received their puncture in just one day, something that had not happened so far and that has considerably increased the number of vaccines given in the last week, since 22,546 people from Almeria have been vaccinated since last Monday.

The figures have been known this Sunday in a small part of the Ministry of Health and Families, which yesterday, when there were 189 positives, already announced that today there would be no epidemiological data. But those of the vaccines have arrived and thus it has been known that there are already 145,250 people from Almeria, slightly less than 2% of the more than 700,000 inhabitants that the province has. Likewise, there are 41,582 who already have the two guidelines and go to the immunized group. Data that, once again, place Almería as the second province that receives the least vaccines.

As the information from the Junta de Andalucía collects, until this Saturday a total of 1,866,925 doses of the vaccine against covid-19 have been administered - 92.58% of the doses received - and, specifically, 541,153 people, 6.37% of the population, have already received the complete vaccine with both doses, while 780,619 only have the first.

By provinces, as indicated by the Ministry in a statement, in Seville a total of 408,473 doses have been administered and 118,900 people have already completed the vaccine, while in Malaga the total doses so far amounts to 331,785 and people with both already inoculated are 93,830.

In Cádiz there are 259,866 vaccines already administered and people with the two doses add up to 71,661; in Granada, there are 226,821 administered and 64,433 people with both, and in Córdoba, 213,995 doses and 67,344 people with the full schedule of the vaccine.

Finally, the total of doses administered in Jaén amounts to 160,860, with 49,275 people with both and in Huelva, the vaccines are 119,875 and 34,128 people already have both.

Stats for the last 24 hours -  189 more cases and 3 more deaths - plus notice that there will be no stats tomorrow for some reason

Google translation:

Another 3 deceased and almost 200 positives in Almería, which exceeds 50,000 cases

Hospitalized patients decrease despite the fact that 18, 4 have been admitted to the ICU in the last 24 hours

The Junta de Andalucía has published the epidemiological data for this Saturday with a warning: "On Sundays there will be no communication." Thus, today's part becomes the last of the first post-holiday week and the province of Almería has arrived with another three deaths and 189 positives detected in the last 24 hours.

This is collected by the information provided by Health in which it stands out that, after adding 189 new cases of covid, 59 less than the day before, the counter of positives detected through the PDIA tests (antigen test and PCR) has today exceeded 50,000 Almería infected since March. Specifically, there are 50,107 residents of the province who have tested positive for covid at some point in the last year, of which 772 have not been able to defeat the disease and have died after testing positive, three of them in the last 24 hours.

For their part, the hospitals in the province do present better data today than the day before, since there are 135 admitted, 48 of them in Intensive Care, which means the output of seven and three, respectively, compared to the day before. Despite the fact that the burden has been slightly reduced in the three hospitals in the province, in the last 24 hours there have been up to 18 hospitalized, of which four have needed ICU.

In addition, this Saturday 507 new recovered patients have been notified, which is a new blow to active cases, which has been falling for more than a week. In this way, with the 507 new ones recovered (42,808 since March), the infected patients in the province at the moment are 6,527, a figure that was not seen since the beginning of January, which was a fucking inflection and, from Of those days, the curve shot up again after the Christmas holidays.

Incidence goes up

The concern has already been installed among the health authorities and with good reason, because, as the Junta de Andalucía has made public today in a graph, the epidemiological curve in the community has said goodbye to the plateau and is already on the rise, which lasts from the first days of this week, after the Easter holidays. (SEE THE GRAPH IN THE SPANISH ARTICLE)

Thus, the epidemiological part of Health collects this Saturday that the accumulated incidence in the community is 201.82.


Rate of vaccination increasing in the province (with a throwaway line saying they are planning to use AZ on 65-69 year olds as well as 60-65 year olds - just read elsewhere that they will move on to 65-69 with AZ when they finish 60-65)

Google translation:

Almería reaches a new record with more than 5,000 vaccines in one day

The province adds more than 17,000 doses from Monday to Thursday

Just the day that the planning of the administration of vaccines against the coronavirus had to be changed due to the decision of Health to put only that of AstraZeneca to people over 60 years of age, records were broken in both Almería and Spain.

In the case of Almería, according to the data provided by the Andalusian Regional Government's Ministry of Health and Families and corresponding to the day of April 8, a total of 5,213 AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were administered throughout the province. Until that date there had never been such a record.

In this way, the objective of reaching an approximate figure of up to 27,000 doses throughout this week is on track, since since last Monday the accumulated figure exceeds 17,000. They are still pending to add the doses that were administered yesterday and those that will be put throughout this weekend, in which the vaccine car of the Palace of the Mediterranean Games will remain active.

Accumulated data

The latest report determines that 139,865 vaccines have already been given in the province of Almería. To reach the entire population, that amount will need to be multiplied by ten, although it must be borne in mind that in some cases a single dose will suffice, when, for example, Johnson's sera arrive.

In addition, from Health and Families it is recalled that in the Almeria geography it can already be considered that there are 41,155 immunized citizens after having received the complete regimen (two doses of Moderna or Pfizer).

Although the plans of the Ministry of Health force to postpone appointments for those under 60 years of age who were to receive the AstraZeneca vaccine, these doses are now destined for the Almeria population aged between 60 and 69 years, which total more than 72,000 people throughout the province. They are 10 percent of the population.

First counselor

On the other hand, the Minister of Economic Transformation, Industry, Knowledge and Universities of the Junta de Andalucía, Rogelio Velasco, has wanted to send "a message of tranquility" to the population so that they can go to be vaccinated against the coronavirus "without any fear that they are going to suffer any kind of sequel ”.

This Thursday Velasco became the first member of the Andalusian Government to be vaccinated and, questioned by journalists during the presentation of the next edition of the Transfiere forum, he stated that "I have had absolutely no discomfort."

Thus, he has encouraged those people who are currently in the vaccination process "do not hesitate for a second and go to the health center or hospital that they have indicated without fear that they are going to suffer any type of sequela".


AZ for 65-69 years olds in Spain once 60-65 years olds have been vaccinated

As you probably know Spain is giving AstraZeneca vaccines to people in the age range from 65 to 60. Working downwards through the age group in the general public. I can speak from personal experience now. I know that they will have reached the 62 year olds next week in the province of Almería.

Around 84,000 more vaccines delivered to Spain in the last reported 24 hours -  approximately 454,000 used in the last 24 hours - so percentage used increases from 78.6% to 81.8% - it should get close to or above 90% assuming there are no more deliveries this week

The second table shows that the number of adults that have had at least one dose has increased from 16.0% to 16.9% in the last 24 hours



This is a bit worrying.....

A new "more contagious" variant of the coronavirus arrives in Almería

The Minister of Health has confirmed 16 cases in Andalusia of the B1258 strain, spread over Almería, Córdoba and Málaga

The Minister of Health and Families, Jesús Aguirre, has confirmed that the presence of a new variant of the SARS-COV-2 coronavirus, B1258, is already known in Andalusia, which is "more contagious" and has been declared to the National Microbiology Center and information has been sent to the European Union for classification.

Of this there are 16 cases in Andalusia, specifically in Almería, Córdoba and Malaga, as reported by the Minister of Health in a SUR forum held in Malaga this Friday.

On the other hand, the first imported case of the Brazilian variant has also been found, specifically in Seville. It is an imported case, he specified, adding that they had traveled from Brazil to Seville and in this case a partner was infected, the first case coming from Brazil.

"This virus has a great capacity for mutation and worries us when the variant is more contagious. When it has a greater capacity for clinical involvement, greater morbidity and mortality, it begins to worry us. And when it is less sensitive to acquired immunity, either by vaccination or by having passed the infection begins to worry us, "emphasized the Andalusian councilor.

Aguirre has added that currently in Andalusia, in addition to the above, there are seven cases of the South African variant located and four due to contagion between them. Of these eleven, ten are in recovery without sequelae and one has been admitted to Córdoba; while in Uganda there are four cases, with one deceased and the rest in recovery without sequelae.

"We have many variables when it comes to seeing the evolution of the pandemic, hence we ask a lot of caution and maintain hygienic-sanitary and prevention measures," he concluded.
