Stats for the last 24 hours -168 more cases and 1 more death
The number of people admitted for COVID-19 in Almería grows, which today adds 168 positives

The first death with COVID-19 of this year 2021 has been confirmed
Hospital pressure continues to increase in Almería in the last two days. Despite the fact that the year began with a considerable drop in the number of admitted, reaching 76 people with COVID-19 in Almeria hospitals, it has now risen to 90 hospitalized today.
In addition, the number of critically ill patients in the ICU is also increasing. This Monday there are 26 people admitted to Intensive Care, two more than the previous day.
Regarding the evolution of infections, the Ministry of Health has notified 168 new positive cases in Almería. These figures are similar to those of previous days, so for the moment there is no drastic rise in infections, but there is no improvement either. We still have to wait a few days to see the effects that Christmas may have had on the number of new cases.
First deceased of the year
On the other hand, the Junta de Andalucía has confirmed the first death from COVID-19 of this year 2021. It is the 290th victim of the pandemic in the province of Almería. The good trend of three days without deaths is thus broken, since the last one was announced on December 31.
At the moment the information has not been updated by municipalities or districts, so it is not known where the deceased person resided or how many new cases there are in each town. It should be remembered that these municipalized data have not been renewed since Thursday, December 31.
On the other hand, Health has confirmed only 18 new cured people, so the total figure is 18,802 recovered since the pandemic began.
