In terms of outbreaks there is one more new one - in Laujar. However the active outbreaks total stays at 8. As the Roquetas outbreak is considered as controlled now.
I will have to try to locate the definition of what and what is not considered an outbreak.

Coronavirus numbers in the province continue to rise. This Wednesday, officials from the Andalusian Government were already warning of the increase in cases in some of the outbreaks already detected and of the appearance of a new outbreak, something that the daily report on Thursday has confirmed.
Despite this, the Ministry of Health today locates four fewer cases of Covid-19 in the province of Almería. This is due, as he explains, to small oscillations in the absolute number of data that depend on different factors related to the collection of the same, which is carried out day by day, case by case, and the improvement of their quality.
Even so, Almería adds one more outbreak to the list, the one registered in Laujar de Andarax and that this Wednesday afternoon was already announced by the Health delegate, Juan de la Cruz Belmonte. This currently has eight active cases.
