The forecasts for the province of Almería of the Minister of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucía, Jesús Aguirre seem to be fulfilled. After the Andalusian councilor announced that Almería could suffer an increase in the epidemiological curve due to the advance of the British strain, this Saturday, the epidemiological part has reached the news with data that break with those registered so far.
This is the case after in the last 24 hours Almería has added 185 new positives for coronavirus, which contrasts with just over 140 the day before, and the death of three other patients with covid-19 has also been reported, after yesterday the province celebrated its first day without deaths from this cause in the last two months.
But the joy has lasted just long enough, how long it takes for the new part of Health to arrive, which states that after the increases on Saturday, March 6, Almería now has 45,541 positives detected since March through the PDIA tests (antigen and PCR) and 659 deaths in the year of the pandemic.
In the same way, the situation continues to be worrying in the three hospitals in the province, Torrecárdenas, La Inmaculada and Poniente, where a total of 22 new patients with coronavirus have been seen entering the plant, four in Intensive Care. With this increase, the situation is currently under much less pressure than in previous weeks, but with concern about the data on admissions, which today leave 165 hospitalized, 57 of them in the ICU.
In the section of cured patients and with epidemiological discharge, this is the only hopeful figure for this Saturday, since in the last hours those recovered have returned to be more than the new positives, with 239 new patients cured compared to 185 positives.
In Andalusia, on the other hand, there have been more than 1,000 positives in one day, with 1,239 from 07:00 hours on Friday to the same time today, and 41 deaths of covid patients. In hospitals, on the other hand, the situation is as follows: Cádiz (177 hospitalizations, of which 54 in ICU), Córdoba (130 hospitalizations, of which 33 in ICU), Granada (253 hospitalizations, of which 62 in ICU), Huelva (59 hospitalizations, of which 9 in ICU), Jaén (118 hospitalizations, of which 29 in ICU), Malaga (308 hospitalizations, of which 50 in ICU) and Seville (247 hospitalizations, of which 61 in ICU).
