Almería has reasons for hope and today it has lived a day without deaths after adding two more deaths on the eve, the first day of the December bridge, which raised to 230 the total of covid patients who have lost their lives in the pandemic . Despite the fact that no person from Almeria has died in the last 24 hours as a victim of the coronavirus, the daily part of the Ministry of Health and Families that collects the progress of the epidemiological curve returns to record found figures, since any celebration ends when it is attended to the number of patients who have needed to be hospitalized in the last 24 hours, which have been 48 throughout the province.
Regarding the number of newly infected, since 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, 118 people from Almeria have undergone PDIA tests (antigens and PCR) and have yielded a positive result, which leaves the total of PDIA with affirmative result in 18,737 since March, more than 19,000 if the rapid tests are counted. Thus, the 118 today represent a decrease of more than 20 positives compared to the day before, when 141 people from Almeria were infected by the covid.
But, as noted, the number of hospitalized patients in the last 24 hours represents a considerable increase, since 48 have needed to be admitted to one of the three hospital centers in the province, of which none have presented a serious state of health that has required admission to an Intensive Care Unit.

On the other hand, this Sunday there are only 102 hospitalized patients and there is one less in Intensive Care.
