Story from early this morning about coronavirus rates
Covid Almería report: mortality from Covid cases drops to August levels
The infections also resemble those of July last year
The province of Almería has closed the month of May with indicators of new cases of coronavirus and deaths similar to those at the end of the first wave of the pandemic.
According to the data collected by this newspaper, over the last 31 days a total of 1,674 cases of Covid-19 have been notified to the Ministry of Health from the three districts of Almeria, a figure that was not known since July 2020. In That month, 656 cases were declared and in August it had risen to 3,419, in the so-called start of the second wave.
The same occurs with the mortality figures from coronavirus throughout this past May. Between days 1 and 31, the loss of life of 27 people from Almeria had to be regretted, a record even lower than the 21 declared throughout August 2020.
In the third wave, the pandemic left more than worrying data such as the 146 deaths in Almería in January and 200 in February of this year. On the contrary, between March and the end of July only 53 deaths were declared.
Analyzing the above data, it is concluded that a daily average of 54 Covid-19 infections is currently recorded.
Undoubtedly, public health experts highlight that in the province of Almería the effects of mass vaccination are being noticed, even more than in other Andalusian provinces, the process of which began at the end of December last year in a center El Ejido nursing home.
As of yesterday, there were over 365,000 doses of vaccines administered throughout the province.
Similarly, the sharp decline in Covid-19 infections throughout the month of May has brought the current number of active cases to just 630. There is an accumulated 54,505 coronavirus cases with PCR tests and antigen tests since March 2020, of which 53,044 are already considered epidemiological discharges.
Given that 831 people have died in the entire pandemic, the sum between cured and deceased would be 53,875 and, therefore, the currently active cases would be the aforementioned 630.
And logically, as the level of contagion decreases, hospital pressure has reached levels of last summer of 2020 in the province of Almería at the beginning of the second wave.
As of yesterday, according to the Ministry of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucía, in the public and private hospitals of Almería there are only a total of 29 residents in the province admitted by Sars-Covd-2.
The department headed by Jesús Aguirre specifies that of those 29, 12 occupy ICU beds due to their delicate state of health.
Rest of Andalusia
The situation in the rest of Andalusian provinces is as follows: Cádiz (67 hospitalizations, of which 17 in ICU), Córdoba (72 hospitalizations, of which 25 in ICU), Granada (157 hospitalizations, of which 46 in ICU) , Huelva (56 hospitalizations, of which 7 in ICU), Jaén (101 hospitalizations, of which 20 in ICU), Malaga (107 hospitalizations, of which 15 in ICU) and Seville (227 hospitalizations, of which 61 in ICU).
Thus, only Huelva presents better indicators than Almería in ICU bed occupancy.
On the other hand, the community of Andalusia has registered a total of 1,397 cases of coronavirus this Monday, May 31, less than the 1,400 of the same days last week, according to data consulted by Europa Press of the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography (IECA), which has counted two deaths, less than last Monday and Sunday when there were five.

Almería vaccinations moving on to the under 50s (story from yesterday)
The Board announces who will get the vaccine this week in Almería
Vaccination in the province will accelerate when it is the turn of young people, says Health
The vaccination campaign of the Junta de Andalucía continues its progress in the province of Almería after leaving record figures last week and the Ministry of Health has already announced who will be the next to be vaccinated in the province throughout this week .
According to the words of the Almeria delegate, Juan de la Cruz Belmonte, over the next seven days the administration of vaccines will reach Almeria born in 1971, that is, those who are 50 years old, who have already begun to be called so that they come to receive their dose.
In the same way, Belmonte has explained that from tomorrow, Tuesday, people born between 1972 and 1974 will also be called, those who are between 49 and 47 years old, which is, in the words of the delegate, "good news ". Thus, he hopes that they will come "as soon as possible" to fulfill "little by little the project to reach that day of herd immunity."
And it is that with the new calls for vaccination the 'barrier' of 50 years of age is overcome and the administration of doses to the youngest population of the province is approaching, a fact that, explained Belmonte, will mean an increase considerable size of the immunized population.
"The number of vaccines that are destined for the Almeria population will progressively increase as the process is aimed at younger citizens, since the Andalusian population is older than the average Almeria," said the delegate, who has added: "It is a challenge for us that it will reach us."
Likewise, Belmonte has advanced that the arrival of some "47,000 vaccines" to the province of Almeria is expected this week, since this Sunday some 3,600 doses were administered among users, which represents a "record" among those put into a Sunday.
