Stats for the last 48 hours (no reports on Sundays now) - 124 more cases and no more deaths
The weekend leaves 124 new positives for Covid and 365 cured
The province does not register deaths in the last 48 hours
The effects of the dreaded fourth wave are not being as aggressive as those of previous waves. Even so, hospitals do not stop adding new income.
The latest data update by the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography (IECA) reports this Monday, April 26, that the province adds a total of 124 new positives detected through PDIA tests (antigen test and PCR). A number of infections that correspond to the last two days, since the Junta de Andalucía has not provided this information on Sundays on the evolution of the pandemic for several weeks.
The province does not add new deaths in the last 48 hours, according to data provided by the IECA. Since the start of the pandemic, last March, 797 people with Covid-19 have lost their lives.
Hospital pressure grows in recent days with nine more admissions, one in the Intensive Care Unit. In total, there are 115 people who are hospitalized in the province, of which 39 are in ICU.
The weekend also leaves a good figure regarding the number of people who have been discharged in the last hours: with 365 more cured. In total, 46,499 people from Almería have already defeated the virus since the start of the health alert.
In these last 48 hours, the Andalusian community adds 1,785 new infections.
Evolution of the pandemic
The province of Almería comes out of extreme risk, having an incidence rate of 239.3 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days.
The current situation of the health districts is: 348.2 in Almería, 198.4 in Poniente and 92 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in Levante-Alto Almanzora.
The capital of Almeria has an incidence rate of 363.6.
As of April 26, the province has a total of 5,323 active cases: it is the result of the difference between the total number of confirmed cases since the beginning of the pandemic (52,619) and the difference between the total number of deaths (797) and of recovered (46,499).
It should be remembered that months ago Almería reached more than 15,000 active cases.
Weekday stats for the area
El Ejido now has 232.8 cases (approximately 26 fewer than LAST FRIDAY) per 100,000 inhabitants based on the 14 day average (red for increase; blue for decrease)
Poniente Region now has 198.4 cases (approximately 32 fewer than LAST FRIDAY) per 100,000 inhabitants based on the 14 day average (red for increase; blue for decrease)
Published earlier today - vaccination stats from 26 April 2021 - with data going up to 25 April
Another 4.8% of 70-79 year olds have been given at least 1 dose in Andalucía OVER THE WEEKEND - we are now up at the 75.4% - based on my calculation for when we might move on to the 50-59 year olds this is a bonus. As I was planning on no vaccinations over the weekends. I guess we will need to check the stats tomorrow afternoon/evening to see how we have done in the first week day of this week.
