Each of the hospitals has launched its own contingency plan to be able to attend this high number of patients due to the coronavirus in the third wave of the pandemic in Almería.

The Torrecárdenas University Hospital has reserved more beds than planned, occupying floors that are not now intended for these patients, it has even transferred patients to the Maternal and Child, open at the end of 2019.

Daily data

Last Sunday in January: more than 700 cases, 8 ICU admissions and 4 deaths

The daily data of the pandemic, far from improving, are based on more than worrying figures

The last Sunday of January and the daily data of the pandemic, far from improving, are based on more than worrying figures. A situation that Almería shares with the rest of the Andalusian provinces.

This day, the province adds more than 700 new cases, the situation in Almeria hospitals continues to worry, which worsens in these 24 hours and new deaths are to be regretted.

The daily report, prepared by the Andalusian Regional Government Health Department, reports that the province reached 713 positives this last day. It is true that it is well below the 914 cases this Saturday, but this decrease could be motivated by the so-called 'weekend effect'.

Andalusia registers 7,892 new cases of coronavirus in 24 hours this Sunday, the second highest figure in the entire pandemic.

The province of Seville is close to 2,000 positives, with 1,955 new cases in 24 hours, followed by Malaga with 1,787 and Cádiz with 1,293. Below a thousand are Granada with 935, Almería with 713, Córdoba with 456, Huelva with 448 and Jaén with 305.

Deaths
The deaths of people with Covid remain more than worrying. Although Almería is this Sunday far from the 13 deaths that were registered in a day days ago, it has to regret four deaths of the 22 that Andalusia adds today.

Since the start of the pandemic, last March, a total of 435 people with Covid-19 have lost their lives.

Cádiz is the province with the most deaths, with eight, followed by Málaga with five, Almería with four, Granada with two, and Córdoba, Jaén and Seville with one. Huelva is the only province that does not register deaths.

But the situation of the Almeria hospitals, far from improving, continues to get complicated day after day. Health notifies this Sunday 16 new hospitalizations, eight of them in the Intensive Care Unit.

At present, the province has 420 people admitted, of which 94 are in the ICU (three more than the day before).

The daily report of the Junta de Andalucía reports that in the last 24 hours 112 people have overcome the disease, a total of 22,559 since the start of the pandemic.

What municipalities in Almeria have restrictions from this Saturday?

This January 30, the latest measures approved by the Board come into force

With so many comings and goings, it is normal for someone to be confused and do not know in which territories there are currently restrictions (perimeter closure, closure of the hotel industry and closure of non-essential commerce). The latest measures of the Junta de Andalucía, approved this Thursday, came into force, precisely, this Saturday.

What is maintained for all Almeria is the impossibility of leaving the province, except for a series of justified reasons.

So far, the total number of municipalities in Almeria with restrictive mobility measures rises to 64 of the 103 towns in the province.

On an updated census of 727,945 people from Almeria, only 42,566 are released from the restrictions approved by the Junta de Andalucía.

See the interactive map in the article on the Spanish site

The municipalities of Almeria that have perimeter closure of their territories for exceeding the rate of 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants (or the measure is maintained because the minimum 14 days have not yet passed) are: Alicún, Bayárcal, Bédar, Beires, Canjáyar, Cantoria , El Ejido, Felix, Huécija, Huércal Overa, Líjar, Lucainena de las Torres, Padules, Pulpí, Roquetas de Mar, Vícar and Zurgena.

On the other hand, the municipalities that have an incidence rate of more than 1,000 cases per inhabitant and, therefore, the closure of the hotel industry and essential shops are: Abla, Adra, Albox, Alhama de Almería, Almería, Almócita, Antas , Arboleas, Armuña de Almanzora, Bacares, Balanegra, Benahadux, Bentarique, Carboneras, Cóbdar, Cuevas del Almanzora, Chirivel, Fines, Fiñana, Gádor, Huércal de Almería, Los Gallardos, Garrucha, Gérgal, Laujar de Andarax, Macael, María, Mojácar, Níjar, Olula del Río, Oria, Partaloa, Pechina, Purchena, Rioja, Santa Cruz de Marchena, Serón, Sorbas, Tabernas, Taberno, Tíjola, Turre, Urrácal, Vélez Blanco, Vélez Rubio, Vera and Viator. In all of them, the measure must be in force for a minimum of 14 days.

For this Monday, February 1, new changes are expected in the province, since the period of these two weeks established for the first restrictions is fulfilled and municipalities such as María and Huécija have seen their incidence rates fall below 500 cases. There could also be a certain relaxation of the restrictions in some towns in Almería according to the data of the last days and as these fall below 1,000 infections per 100,000 inhabitants.

New hard blow to Almería: 12 deaths and infections exceed 900

The situation is critical in hospitals: 419 admissions, 91 of them in the ICU

New very hard blow to the province. The drop in infections in the first days of this week has been a mirage: Almería once again experiences a sharp rise in the number of new cases. In addition, the number of deaths is still very high, since there have been more than ten in the last 24 hours.

The daily report prepared by the Health Ministry of the Junta de Andalucía reports that the province exceeds 900 positives in this last day, far from the 363 infections this Thursday.

Specifically, Almería adds 914 cases this Saturday of the 7,899 registered by the entire Andalusian community, a new daily record for the entire pandemic.

By provinces, Cádiz is the one with the most positive results on this day, with 1,702, followed by Málaga with 1,347, Seville with 1,199, Granada with 1,028, Almería 914, Córdoba with 615, Huelva with 599 and Jaén with 495.

Cádiz is also the province with the most deaths, with 19, followed by Almería with twelve, Malaga with nine, Granada and Córdoba with eight, Huelva with seven, and Jaén and Seville with three.

But the situation of the Almeria hospitals continues to complicate day after day. Health notifies this Saturday 29 new hospitalizations, two of them in the Intensive Care Unit.

Currently, the province has 419 people admitted, of which 91 are in the ICU.

One more day, Almería clings to the data of people cured: 505 in the last 24 hours. A total of 22,447 people have already overcome the disease.

The Junta de Andalucía once again asks Andalusians to stay at home during this weekend to intern to stop the high infections and thus help to lower the health pressure that the community hospitals currently endure.

Speech from the president of the Junta de Andalucía in El Ejido this morning

"There are at least ten very hard days," Juanma Moreno's notice from Almería

The president insists on calling for an advance curfew and confinement in some areas

The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, has observed this Thursday "with expectation and hope" that the number of COVID-19 infections in the region "is going down" progressively, although he believes that it is too early to determine whether the curve has "bent", since it predicts "ten or twelve very hard days" in relation to hospitalizations, so it has once again insisted that the central government give it the competence to decree home confinement and act like this in certain municipalities or regions.

"We have to do our best so that the health system does not collapse," Moreno said in statements to the media in El Ejido, where he has advanced that the number of infections reported this Thursday drops to 3,676, which "gives us light and hope "compared to" almost 8,000 infections that we had a few days ago ", since the reduction is almost" in half ".

However, she has warned that "this does not mean that the hospital pressure will disappear" but, on the contrary, it will be "increasing" as a result of the positives registered in the previous days.

Even so, he believes that "today" it is "possible" to avoid the saturation of hospitals that has been seen in other regions or countries such as Portugal, where health systems have been "clearly overwhelmed" by the pandemic.

Looking ahead to the next Interterritorial Council to be held this day, the president of the Board has clarified that Andalusia does not renounce "at all" to request more powers for the management of the pandemic that allows it to advance the 'curfew' at " eight or seven in the afternoon "as well as establishing domiciliary confinements in certain municipalities and regions, which would lead to a recovery" much faster.

"I believe that the Government of Spain is doing them a very disservice in the fight against the pandemic by not training the autonomous communities with the very important instrument of curfew and home confinement," said Moreno, who believes that this "very serious "and" huge error "that he attributes to the" intransigence "of the central Executive will be valued in the coming months.

 

 Stats for the last 24 hours -  363 more cases and 10 more deaths

10 deaths in a day in which the infections go down again

The situation in Almeria hospitals continues to be very worrying

The mortality of the coronavirus in recent days is still very high in the province and in the Andalusian community in general. Almería has to add in the last 24 hours ten of the 82 deaths recorded by Andalusia on this day.

Since the start of the pandemic, last March, a total of 410 people with Covid-19 have lost their lives.

Regarding the balance of infections, these continue to decline. According to the daily report prepared by the Health Council of the Junta de Andalucía, Almería adds in the last 24 hours a total of 363 new positives. This Wednesday there were 492 cases and on Monday 592. (NOTE: This is a mistake - the figures quoted are for Tuesday and Monday, not Wednesday and Monday)

It seems that the epidemiological curve is flattening not only in Almería, but also in the Andalusian community. And it is that Andalusia adds this Thursday a total of 3,676 infections, far from the 8,000 reached in previous days.

Hospitals

The situation in the hospitals of the province continues to be very worrying: in this last day there have been 30 new hospitalizations, five of them in the Intensive Care Unit.

The daily report of the Board reports that the province currently has 392 hospitalizations, of which 84 are in the ICU.

The Torrecárdenas Hospital, in the capital, already occupies two floors with Covid patients and is preparing in case one more must be occupied, as reported by the regional administration on Thursday.

The number of infected people who have already overcome the disease in the province is 21,310, after 276 more people from Almeria joined this list in this last day.

Some data that comes after the message sent by the Andalusian president, Juanma Moreno, during her visit to the province of Almería, specifically to El Ejido. The head of the regional government has affirmed that the number of Covid-19 infections in the region "is decreasing" progressively, but predicts "ten or twelve very hard days" in relation to hospitalizations.

In addition, the Andalusian president has insisted on asking the central government to advance the curfew and confinement in areas with a higher contagion rate.

Cockfight in El Ejido: 90 people without covid regulations and with drugs and weapons

The Civil Guard dissolves the concentration, in which there were several minors

The Civil Guard has dissolved in El Ejido an illegal cockfight in which 89 people were concentrated, including minors, who did not comply with the measures related to the health crisis due to covid-19 of social distance, use of a mask and limitation of capacity, since some of them carried weapons and drugs, for which up to 260 complaints have been filed.

The action carried out in the Pozo de la Tía Manolica, within the ejido nucleus of Matagorda, was carried out by the agents after receiving an anonymous notice about the large concentration of people detected in an industrial warehouse in the area, as indicated by the Institute Armed on a note.

The agents urgently traveled to the place where they surprised about a hundred people, including minors, who were fighting an illegal cockfight "without complying, among others, with the measures related to the health crisis due to covid-19."

During the investigation, the agents located the lifeless body of a rooster with recent injuries and 21 live roosters, which had been cut on the ridges and artificial sharpening of the dewclaws.

In the presence of the agents, numerous people threw a multitude of objects such as knives, narcotic drugs and sharpening utensils on the ground, which were finally recognized by their owners, like most of the animals.

Due to these facts, the agents have investigated a person for a crime related to the protection of flora, fauna and domestic animals and have made 260 complaints related to animal protection in Andalusia, possession and consumption of narcotic drugs and for non-compliance with the relative health measures to the covid-19 crisis. The proceedings conducted have been made available to a judge from El Ejido.

400 people with Covid have died since March

After going through the worst week, so far, of the pandemic, the curve begins to fall in Almería.

But the bad news comes in the form of new deaths: 12 in the last 24 hours.

According to figures updated by the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography (IECA), the province has a total of 539 positives.

Almería registered 492 infections on Tuesday and 592 on Monday. There are still many, but the trend in recent days is that of a decrease in the number of diagnosed cases of Covid. In fact, this Wednesday is the second best data since last week.

Almería now exceeds 34,000 positives detected through PCR, antigen and serological tests.

Andalusia adds 6,626 cases of coronavirus this Wednesday. Malaga is the province with the most positives, with 1,371, followed by Seville with 1,305 and Cádiz with 1,234. The rest of the provinces add up to less than a thousand with 780 in Granada, 609 in Córdoba, 539 in Almería, 441 in Huelva and 347 in Jaén.

Deaths

As happened yesterday, the hardest data of the day is that of deceased people: 12 in the last 24 hours out of 85 in Andalusia. Since the start of the pandemic, last March, a total of 400 people with coronavirus have lost their lives.

Cádiz is the province with the most deaths, with 21, followed by Seville with 15, Malaga with 13, Almería with 12, Granada with nine, Córdoba with seven, Huelva with five and Jaén with three.

The number of infected who have already overcome the disease in the province is 21,034, after 276 more people from Almeria join this list.

An article summarising what happens if the count in the "headline" above goes over 1000 - the good news for Jacqui and myself is that golf is still allowed, as that is our main form of exercise (note The Olive Press has a pay wall - however I can see this story - I hope others can)

Changes being made to the organisation of official golf competitions at Almerimar - to make things safer

The next official golf competition at Almerimar is being organised over 2 days (Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 February) rather than on one day. Players will be able to take part on either of the two days. On each day there will be a staggered start rather than a shotgun start at 09:00. Also, as of this week the bar/restaurant in the clubhouse has been closed. I am guessing that there will therefore be no prize giving event after the golf competition.

So the situation is returning to a similar state to that when we came out of the first lockdown in the summer of last year.

On a side note I would like to congratulate the green keeping staff for all their hard work. The new greens are in excellent condition. Overall, I feel that the course is in the best condition I have even seen. Finally, thanks to Juan and Victor for their hard work in the pro-shop. They are providing us with the ability to use the beautiful course in these difficult times.

The Hospital de Poniente expands ICU and refers patients to El Toyo

The center updates its Contingency Plan against Covid-19

The Hospital de Poniente has updated its Contingency Plan against COVID-19, in anticipation of an increase in demand for care. The center expands the resources available for patient care, both in Hospitalization and in the ICU, strengthening the circuits for respiratory pathologies in the Emergency Department and modulating activity in other areas, such as Outpatient Consultations and the Surgical Block.

The Poniente Hospital Contingency Plan against COVID-19 establishes different organizational measures and increases in healthcare resources, depending on the levels of demand associated with this pathology. In the area of ​​care for critical patients, the center puts into operation additional resources to those that have already been used since the Plan was activated, with new positions in the Surgical and Resuscitation Block, which multiply by more than three the capacity of the Intensive Care Unit. These additional spaces have the necessary personnel and equipment to guarantee the quality of care.

In the Hospitalization area, a second floor is added for the care of COVID-19 positive patients, which would allow to have up to 128 beds if necessary.

The reinforcement of the Contingency Plan will include the activation of additional resources in the other center of the Poniente Public Health Agency in the province of Almería, the Hospital de Alta Resolution El Toyo. Patients admitted for other pathologies will be referred to this center this week. For this, the healthcare circuits have been reorganized and the Hospitalization area of ​​El Toyo has been reinforced, with the aim of guaranteeing the highest quality care.

In the Emergencies of the Hospital de Poniente, the double healthcare circuit has been reinforced, with differentiated areas for patients with respiratory symptoms and there is a specific Observation unit for patients with COVID-19, with about twenty positions.

Both in Outpatient Offices and in the Surgical Block, ordinary activity has been reduced, in order to have more healthcare resources and reduce the circulation of patients in the center. In consultations, schedules have been reduced and whenever possible, the patient is offered telematic and telephone care.

Regarding surgical activity, urgent, non-delayed and oncological interventions are being prioritized.

In other units, such as Hemodialysis or Delivery, the Hospital de Poniente maintains regular care since the beginning of the pandemic, with the application of additional safety and prevention measures, generating specific circuits for positive COVID-19 patients.

The unstoppable advance of the covid leaves more than 800 positives and shoots up income

Two other people have died in the last 24 hours and there are already 72 patients in the ICU

Not even Sunday lowers the curve. After the more than 1,000 positives diagnosed yesterday, the daily report of the Ministry of Health has arrived today with a new increase of 830 infections and two new deaths that come to confirm the words of the Health delegate in Almería, Juan de la Cruz Belmonte, who in an interview with LA VOZ has referred to his concern about the current epidemiological situation since in Almería we can reach "1,200 positives" in 24 hours.

And the province is on the way to that figure, because despite the well-known weekend effect, which brings a decrease in infections, with today's 830 there are already 32,293 people from Almeria who have tested positive for a PCR test or antigen test.

Hospital pressure

The increase in the curve in recent weeks means that, day after day, the number of people from Almería who need hospitalization after worsening the Covid-19 disease increases, which, in turn, triggers the pressure on the hospitals and health personnel that are over 300, something never seen in the province until these tough weeks of the third wave.

In this way, after adding 21 hospitalized in the last hours, today there are 325 who are admitted in Torrecárdenas, Poniente or La Inmaculada, of which 72 are in serious condition in Intensive Care, six more than those who were yesterday.

The other disastrous consequence left by the uncontrolled increase in positives is the number of people from Almeria who lose their lives after being infected by the coronavirus, which yesterday returned to record record figures with 15 deaths in 24 hours and today leaves another two deaths, which they bring the total to 366.

Active cases

For its part, there are 164 patients recovered today, which already leaves a total of 20,335 Almeria with epidemiological discharge. But, despite the increase in cured patients, the number of active cases remains at historical highs and today there are 11,592 people from Almeria infected with covid and isolated (only diagnosed by PDIA, about 12,000 if the rapid tests are counted), which leaves Almost 50,000 people from Almería are confined, since, according to the calculations of health experts, an average of three close contacts are confined for each positive.

Almería exceeds 1,000 positives and adds 15 deaths in 24 hours for the first time

There are already more than 300 admitted of which almost 70 are seriously ill in Intensive Care

Dramatic figures arrive that leave today the worst day of the entire pandemic in the province. The coronavirus does not give respite to the people of Almeria during the month of January and today it has struck another blow on the table, leaving in the province the most dramatic day of the more than 10 months of pandemic that have already passed after adding 1,023 new positives and 15 more deaths from covid, by far the highest figures since March.

When it seemed that the more than 800 positives this Friday could represent the highest point of the epidemiological curve in the province, the coronavirus today again shows its virulence during 2021 and leaves Almería plunged in the most critical situation in recent times , with almost 60 municipalities completely closed and 35 in which all non-essential activity has stopped to try to contain the virus.

Closures that are a consequence of the high incidence rate that the province suffers and that may increase greatly this Monday when, after the weekend, the Ministry of Health and Families of the Board updates the Covid portal of the Institute of Statistics again and Cartography of Andalusia.

In the meantime, it has been known this Saturday that, once again, the number of hospitalized patients in the province has increased, once again surpassing their own records and today there are 316 people from Almería who are admitted to Torrecárdenas, Poniente or La Inmaculada, 66 of them in an intensive care bed given its severity.

In this way, with the data reported today, there are already 31,463 people from Almeria who have tested positive for a PCR test or antigen test and 364 deceased, an increase that today has also reached patients recovered in the last 24 hours, which there have been 270 and leave a total of 20,171 Almeria with the epidemiological discharge.

These are the 57 municipalities of Almería with perimeter closure

34 of them will also have closed bars and non-essential shops as of Saturday

The Territorial Committee for High Impact Public Health Alerts of Almería has met again this Thursday, electronically, in a meeting chaired by the territorial delegate for Health and Families, Juan de la Cruz Belmonte Mena, to analyze the epidemiological data incidence of Covid-19 in the province.

As a result of that meeting, it has been determined that the municipalities that have between 500 and 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants and that therefore maintain the perimeter closure are Abla, Almería, Beires, Canjáyar, Gérgal, Huécija, Huércal de Almería, Lucainena de las Torres, Padules, Armuña del Almanzora, Bédar, Cantoria, Huércal Overa, Líjar, Macael, Pulpí, Serón, Turre, Balanegra, El Ejido, Felix, Laujar de Andarax and Roquetas de Mar.

The aforementioned measures come into force at midnight on Saturday, January 23 after their publication in BOJA. Until that moment, the municipalities remain in the situation previously awarded and affected by the measures corresponding to that situation.

Breakdown of recent infections in the province by age

https://www.lavozdealmeria.com/noticia/12/almeria/207875/las-cifras-del-covid-en-almeria-casi-un-40-de-contagiados-son-jovenes

The Covid figures in Almería: almost 40% of those infected are young

Of the 3,580 cases reported in a week, more than 1,300 are under 29 years old

The third wave of the coronavirus pandemic is notably affecting people from Almeria who are under 30 years old.

If in the first wave the group most affected by Covid-19 was the one that grouped people over 65, the trend has been totally reversed. At least in the province of Almería.

The report of the Institute of Statistics and Cartography of Andalusia (IECA) corresponding to the day of January 20 sheds light on what percentage of affected there is in each age segment among the Almeria population. And the data that is offered is not at all comparable to that offered in the past spring of 2020: the pandemic is no longer a thing of the elderly, it is increasingly so of young people and children.

Last week

The IECA website offers accumulated data for the last 14 days and for the last week. To analyze the records, the data corresponding to the last week has been taken into account, which is when the infections have soared the most, with a daily average of 500.

In the province as a whole, a cumulative figure of 3,580 infections is pointed out, of which almost 40 percent correspond to children under 30 years of age.

Specifically, of the 3,580, 513 correspond to those from Almeria who are up to 14 years old, that is, those who are studying Infant and Primary and the first years of Secondary.

Infections by age in the last week - see diagram in Spanish article

This number of infections in Almeria between 0 and 14 years represents 14.33 percent of the provincial total.

The latest data provided by the Board reveals that, at present, there are around 80 closed classrooms in educational centers. It represents 1.1 percent of the provincial total, but it is also significant that Almería and Málaga are the areas of the Andalusian autonomous community with the highest number of students who have been sent home to quarantine for being positive for Covid-19 or having had close contact with someone infected.

In any case, the Board maintains that there are "safe classrooms" and there are no reasons to decree the massive closure of centers in the middle of the third wave.

Young boys

In the next age group analyzed are people from Almeria between 15 and 29 years of age. They represent, with 806 infections in the last seven days, 21.51 percent of the provincial total.

This segment includes students in the last years of Secondary and Baccalaureate and university and the group in search of their first job. About 100 positives have been counted on the UAL Campus since the beginning of the course. In almost the entire period, the classes have been non-contact.

Christmas has also had its ‘secondary’ effects among the people of Almeria between the ages of 45 and 64. They are the most numerous of the total (990) and represent 27.65 percent of those infected with coronavirus.

With between 30 and 44 years, the absolute figure rises to 818, with a percentage that is close to 23 percent of the provincial total, according to the data collected in the latest report from the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography, dependent on the Ministry of Economy.

Greater

The data are conclusive: currently only 13 percent of infections in the province of Almería are located in people over 65, according to the statistics collected by the IECA for the last week.

Thus, of the 3,580 cases declared in the middle of this month of January to the Ministry of Health, 413 correspond to people from Almeria who are over 65 years old.

The data shows that the elderly are increasingly protected from the coronavirus. Among those older than 85 years, they barely represent 3 percent of the provincial total of infections.

And that protection will be greater in the coming weeks when the group is fully vaccinated.

 

Stats for the last 24 hours - 823 more cases and 8 more deaths

More than 820 infections and 8 deaths: Almería once again breaks its own record

The concern is maximum in the province and all the alarms go off

The province is pulverizing, day by day, its own contagion data. This Friday, Almería exceeds 800 positives for the first time and adds eight new deaths. The concern is maximum and all the alarms go off.

The province exceeds, also for the first time, the 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, they are already exactly 1,031.5.

Some very bad data that arrive hours before the new restrictions come into force in Almeria municipalities. And it is that in 57 of the 103 towns of Almería there will be from this midnight the perimeter closure of their territories and in 34 of these also the closure of non-essential activity and their hotel industry.

The capital was spared this Thursday from the tightening of the measures, but this Friday it has already exceeded the established limit and already has an incidence rate of 1,020.5 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. Which would mean, in a future review and if we continue with this index, the closure of bars and non-essential shops.

A new record

The day before, a new record of positives was reached in the last 24 hours, reaching 704. This has already gone down in history with 823 new cases this Friday.

The situation is also critical in Andalusia, where this Friday 7,816 positives were reached (also a new record for daily positives).

Malaga is once again the province with the most positives with 1,661, followed by Seville with 1,460 and Cádiz with 1,397. Below a thousand infections are Granada with 901, Almería with 823, Córdoba with 583, Huelva with 517 and Jaén with 474.

The death toll on this day also leaves Almería frozen: Almería has added eight new deaths in the last 24 hours.

Since the start of the pandemic last March, a total of 349 people infected with coronavirus have lost their lives.

In Andalusia there are a total of 50 deaths. Cádiz is the province that adds the most deaths on this day, with 12, followed by Granada with ten, Malaga and Almería with eight each, Córdoba and Seville with five and Jaén with two. Huelva is the only province without deaths.

The 30 new hospitalizations, three in the Intensive Care Unit, once again worsen the already critical situation in Almeria's hospitals.

A total of 19,901 Covid patients have already overcome the disease, 142 more in the last 24 hours, the only positive of this hard day.

New record: the pandemic is out of control and Almería exceeds 700 cases

Two deaths and 27 new hospitalizations in 24 hours

The pandemic is out of control in the province and Almería once again exceeds the record of infections in a single day.

All the alarms have jumped due to the high number of infections in recent weeks and the increase in health pressure in Almeria hospitals that this is causing.

This Thursday the province adds a total of 704 new positives in the last 24 hours, 127 more than the day before (in which 577 were registered). This number of infections is the new record for the province, which until now was on January 10 with 679 infections.

Andalusia also registers its maximum of the entire pandemic this Thursday, with 7,409 cases of coronavirus. The community increases its incidence rate of Covid-19 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days to 740.5.

Malaga is the province that adds the most positives, with 1,652, followed by Seville with 1,216 and Cádiz with 1,133. Below a thousand infections are Granada with 865, Córdoba with 707, Almería with 704, Huelva with 591 and Jaén with 541.

The bad news also comes with new deaths in the province, two more in the last day.

But the situation in the Almeria hospitals is also critical and the hospital pressure increases day after day. In these last 24 hours, there are 27 new hospitalizations and five new admissions to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

Precisely, given this situation, the Ministry of Health has reported this Thursday that the Torrecárdenas University Hospital has launched its own contingency plan in the face of the increase in patients with coronavirus in the third wave of the pandemic in Almería.

More beds have been reserved than planned, occupying floors that are now not intended for these patients. The transfer of patients with other pathologies to the Maternal and Child, opened at the end of 2019, has even been contemplated.

 

More tightening in various municipalities - including El Ejido - according to the article here on the La Voz de Almería site (still to be officially confirmed I believe)

The epidemiological situation worsens in the vast majority of municipalities in the province and after the meeting of the High Impact Public Health Alert Committee of Almería, which met today, Monday, January 18, via telematics, it has been decided to increase the number of municipalities that will be confined on the perimeter, as well as those that close all non-essential businesses and hotel establishments.

Based on the incidence rate of the covid during the last 14 days, the scale set by the board to decide the measures to be applied in each locality, is 49 and the municipalities that are under more restrictive measures for exceeding the rate of 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants and 28 of them, 10 more than on Friday, will see all their non-essential shops, bars and restaurants closed when they exceed 1,000 positives.

More than 500: perimeter closure

Thus, the Territorial Committee, which has been chaired by the territorial delegate for Health and Families in Almería, Juan de la Cruz Belmonte, after analyzing the epidemiological data in the province of Almería, has also proposed the modification of the annex to the President's Decree 3 / 2021 for the perimeter confinement of 14 new municipalities, which are: Abla, Bédar, Beires, Canjáyar, Cantoria, Felix, Gérgal, Huércal Overa, Líjar, Pulpí, Rioja, Roquetas de Mar and Turre.

Likewise, it is worth noting the irruption of Tabernas, which has gone from not appearing on any list, has today entered the list of those that exceed the rate of 1,000 infections, which means that in total there are 28 municipalities that will live until the first days February under the toughest restrictions in all of Andalusia, since to those mentioned we must add those that already were: Albox, Alhama de Almería, Antas, Arboleas, Carboneras, Cóbdar, Chirivel, Fiñana, Gádor, Los Gallardos, María, Mojácar , Oria, Partaloa, Sorbas, Taberno, Vélez-Rubio and Vélez-Blanco.

New notice from the Junta de Andalucía. If the virus is not contained during these days, on Friday there will be new measures and restrictions to 'fence' the advance of the coronavirus and the rapid increase in infections experienced in the community in recent days.

In interviews on Cadena SER and Canal Sur Televisión, Juan Marín has warned that the closure of certain activities could be decreed "depending on how the Covid is responding" once the committee of experts analyzes the situation next Friday, since As reported last week by the president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, the Advisory Council of High Impact Public Health Alerts will meet weekly from now on in view of the complicated situation Andalusia is going through.

"The decisions that have to be taken" will be taken to combat the third wave, "said the vice president of the regional government.

On the other hand, Juan Marín has pointed out that if the central government, finally, does not give them authorization to put the so-called curfew at 8:00 p.m. as requested, it will be something that they recommend to citizens, although "the State Security Forces and Bodies will not have the tools to tell citizens to go home.

Moreno has launched this message in the Sevillian town of Mairena del Alcor during his speech at the inauguration of the Center for High Resolution of Specialties (CARE) Los Alcores on the eve of the meeting of the committee of experts that will agree on the tightening of restrictions in Andalusia before the evolution of the third wave of the pandemic, which has anticipated that it will be the "hardest, most difficult and complex of those experienced so far".

In this sense, Moreno has warned about the need not to turn houses into "mini-restaurants" where to meet friends or relatives who do not live together and has warned that neither the Board nor any administration can "be in the houses or at clandestine parties."

The curfew was set between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., anticipating its start by one hour since during the Christmas period it was extended until 11 p.m.

In addition, the hospitality business was set to close again at 6:00 p.m., while the retail sector can close at 8:00 p.m. The cafeterias may be open until 8:00 p.m., provided that alcoholic beverages are not served.

On the other hand, it was agreed to resume the school year normally after the Christmas break.

This Wednesday, according to data consulted in the Andalusian Institute of Cartography and Statistics (IECA), a total of 552 positives were registered in the province. The second highest figure since the start of the pandemic, after 655 cases this Monday. The data this eve was better regarding new infections, although the figure was also high, with 252 positives.

With these data, Almería exceeds 25,000 people infected with Covid-19 since last March.
