Almería adds two other new outbreaks and 19 positive for coronavirus in 24 hours

The province registers today its seventh and eighth regrowth, both in the district of the capital

Almería has lived another bad day today regarding the epidemiological curve of the coronavirus after adding 19 new positives, one of them associated with the outbreak detected in Pulpí yesterday, and two more outbreaks, both located in the Almería district.

With the data updated by the Ministry of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucia this noon, the coronavirus already leaves in the province of Almería a total of eight active outbreaks distributed in its three districts, with three in Almería, one in Levante and four in Poniente, plus one already eradicated in Levante, and a total of 841 coronavirus cases detected through PCR tests. Thus, the two new sprouts located in Almería have 7 cases each.

With today's 19 positives, Almería becomes the second province with the most cases detected in the last 24 hours, only advanced by Malaga, which has confirmed 23.

Likewise, the province currently has nine hospitalized patients, of which one is in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). By provinces: in Almería (9 hospitalizations of which 1 in ICU), Cádiz (3 hospitalizations and none in ICU), Córdoba (4 hospitalizations of which 2 in ICU), Granada (12 hospitalizations of which 1 in ICU), Huelva (2 hospitalizations and none in ICU), Jaén (2 hospitalizations and none in ICU), Malaga (9 hospitalizations and none in ICU) and Seville (4 hospitalizations of which 1 in ICU).

For its part, 772 people have managed to overcome Covid-19, three more than the day before, and 53 have died since the start of the pandemic due to this disease.

This is the current situation of the coronavirus pandemic in Almería, in the absence of clarification of the failures that have originated in the PCR tests carried out at the Hospital de Poniente and that have led to several 'false positives'. For the moment, the Board has not modified these data, although, as La Voz de Almería has advanced, around 25% of the positives detected in the West during the past week would be false positives.
