This is the rolling coronavirus story for Friday 30 October 2020.

 

It will all end in tiers

I am starting today with a bigger version of the charts from yesterday. Click on the image to see a bigger version of it. (You can see them this size every day by clicking on the image in the Monday-Friday charts and data I publish each week day. This allows you to see the full size image.)

The chart on the bottom right shows the 14 day cases values for the province of Almería, the Poniente health region and the El Ejido area (that includes Almerimar).

I am off to play golf soon. So I do not have time to do much research. However I believe that the Poniente health area will be classified at tier 2 of coronavirus measure. Starting from midnight tonight. Assuming that there is no massive increase in cases in the stats to be published today.

I need to do some work on the chart to add lines to show the threshold lines for each of the 4 tiers. I will do that when I get a chance.

What is interesting is that I think that if the tiers were based on the figures for the province as a whole we would be in tier 4. If it was based on the El Ejido area then I think we would be in tier 3. However I think we will be classified as tier 2 based on the stats for the Poniente health area.

I will look in to this in more detail soon. I will then publish the correct information, rather than what I think is going on.

Got to get ready for some golf now.

Perimeter closure, isolated provinces, hospitality ...: the measures in Andalusia

Bars will have to close at 10:30 p.m., half an hour before curfew

The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, has announced this Wednesday the perimeter closure of the autonomous community from 00.00 hours this Friday, October 30 and until November 9, with the aim of curbing contagion by coronavirus. It also includes the perimeter closure in the provinces of Granada, Jaén and Seville, currently at level four of health alert.

Moreno has appeared via telematics before the media after presiding, in the Palacio de San Telmo in Seville, a meeting of the Advisory Council for High Impact Public Health Alerts, better known as the ´committee of experts´, to analyze the situation of the pandemic in the community and possible new measures to stop it.

Andalusia has added this Wednesday a total of 33 more deaths from Covid-19 coronavirus in 24 hours, 19 less than the day before but fifth highest number in the second wave of the pandemic, and 2,042 new positives confirmed by PCR and antigen tests, 781 less than this Tuesday.

Thus, the autonomous communities may decide to limit the entry and exit of their territories, for the entire perimeter of the region or for a lower area for a minimum period of seven calendar days, and their presidents will be the competent delegated authorities.

Existing measures

Before the approval of this decree on the state of alarm, the Junta had already taken measures to stop the contagion in various parts of Andalusia. Thus, one of the first decisions agreed upon was the closure of the perimeter of Granada and its metropolitan area and the limitation of the mobility of people from 11:00 pm to 6:00 am, except for justifiable reasons. The measures also led to the suspension of face-to-face classes at the University of Granada.

A few days later came the decision on restrictions in the capitals of Córdoba, Jaén and Seville, as well as in twelve municipalities in those provinces, and in the Almeria town of Los Gallardos. For its part, the municipality of Ecija was affected by a mobility restriction that was extended. All these measures, some extended, were in force since last weekend with a last publication in the Official Gazette of the Junta de Andalucía (BOJA).

Regarding the restrictions that were approved for Córdoba, Jaén and Seville and for thirteen municipalities, they consisted, among other issues, in that the hotel and catering establishments will limit the capacity to 50 percent, including function rooms, both indoors and outdoors. outside, not being allowed the consumption in bar. The tables or groups of tables must keep a distance of at least 1.5 meters with respect to the chairs assigned to the other tables or groups of tables in order to ensure the maintenance of the proper physical distance of at least 1.5 meters between people seated at different tables or, where appropriate, groups.

I this way, especially worrying is the increase in the number of people from Almeria who have lost their lives as a result of covid-19, which is already 149 since the beginning of the pandemic and which has experienced an unprecedented jump in 24 hours, since until today , October 27, the worst day in terms of deaths was August 13, when eight deaths from covid were reported in the province, as recorded by the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography on its website.

The distribution of the 10 deaths leaves the Levante-Alto Almanzora health district in an alarming situation, since it has registered seven of the 10, since the other three have occurred in the Almería district. Thus, Almería capital has notified three more deaths from 9:30 a.m. on Monday to the same time today and the rest, seven, have occurred one in each of the following municipalities: Albox, Cuevas del Almanzora, Huércal-Overa , Macael, Pulpí, Vélez-Rubio and Vera.

However, good news has also arrived today, as 114 patients have recovered from the disease in the last 24 hours throughout the province of Almería and there are already 7,870.

Latest proposal for risk levels and responses

https://www.lavozdealmeria.com/noticia/18/actualidad/202689/sanidad-propone-no-salir-de-casa-y-cerrar-bares-a-22-horas-con-riesgo-extremo

Health proposes not leaving home and closing bars at 10 pm with extreme risk

Health advises limiting social contacts and meetings of six people to the maximum

The Ministry of Health is going to propose this Thursday to the Health Councilors, within the framework of the Interterritorial Council of the National Health System (CISNS), that in the areas with the highest incidence of coronavirus infections, establishments with non-essential services be closed, such as bars, at 10 pm and the population is recommended not to leave their homes.

This follows from the new draft of the plan for 'Coordinated response actions to control the transmission of COVID-19', to which Europa Press has had access and which is expected to be approved this morning by the Public Health Commission and, later, in the CISNS.

The document, which involves a "technical development" of the indicators included in the 'Early Response Plan', establishes the actions to be carried out by the regions according to their coronavirus transmission alert levels, adaptable to the situation and to the context of each healthcare and public health territory.

The European Center for Disease Control (ECDC) has established a threshold of cumulative incidence in 14 days of 25 cases per 100,000 inhabitants to consider that the risk begins to increase, and an upper limit of 150 to consider that the risk is very high.

However, for Spain an additional threshold has been established, an incidence greater than 250 per 100,000, to indicate extreme risk situations in which additional actions are required if those implemented when there are incidents of more than 150 fail to control transmission.

To assess risk, Health provides eight main indicators and four risk levels, divided into two blocks. In the first, the level of virus transmission is evaluated through the accumulated incidence in 14 and 7 days accumulated per 100,000 inhabitants; the cumulative incidence in 14 and 7 days of people over 65 per 100,000 inhabitants; the percentage of positivity of the diagnostic tests; and the percentage of cases with traceability. In the second block, the occupation of beds in hospitals and Intensive Care Units (ICU) is measured.

Four levels of risk are assigned to each of them, considering the highest risk, or extreme situation, the one with incidences greater than 250 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days, or 125 cases in a week. However, this threshold is reduced to 75 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in a week (and 150 in 14 days) when patients are older than 65 years.

In this extreme scenario, the positivity rate for diagnostic tests would have to be 15 percent and the percentage of cases with traceability 30 percent. In addition, it is established that the occupancy of hospital beds stands at 15 percent and ICUs at 25 percent.

Currently, and according to the latest report published by the Ministry of Health on the cases of Covid-19 in Spain, this Wednesday, October 21, the communities that are in an extreme situation Navarra (543.71 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days ); Aragon (265.29), La Rioja (301.77), Melilla (412.78) and Ceuta (221.76).

On the other hand, Health places in the high level the regions that have a cumulative incidence of cases in 14 days of between 150 and 250 per 100,000 inhabitants (between 75 and 125 in seven days). Murcia (172.57 in two weeks), Castilla y León (157.78) are currently at this level.

The average risk is when there are between 50 and 150 cases in 14 days (between 25 and 75 in a week). At this time, the communities that would be at this level would be: Madrid (145.23 in two weeks), Extremadura (75.96), Valencian Community (61.17), Castilla-La Mancha (138.33), Balearic Islands (80.30) and Andalusia (55.33).

Finally, the risk is low when in two weeks there is an incidence of between 25 and 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants (between 10 and 25 in one week); and of 'new normal' when fewer than 25 cases per 100,000 inhabitants are registered in two weeks or less than 10 in a week.

In those situations in which territorial units of less than 10,000 inhabitants have to be assessed, groupings may be made in territories such as health areas, integrated care management or regions, for the evaluation and taking of joint measures.

In small territories, the number, trend and rate of change of the cases diagnosed in the last 7 and 14 days will also be taken into account; the proportion of new cases associated with outbreaks; the secondary attack rate; and the existence of hot spots (due to the number of outbreaks, their characteristics and their control situation; the impact on socio-sanitary residences or especially vulnerable populations).
 
The autonomous communities, in coordination with the Ministry, will periodically review the evolution of the indicators to assess maintaining or modifying the alert level. In general, it will be recommended to increase the alert level when, after considering that the information is sufficiently consolidated, the conditions defined above are met. In order to consider reducing the level of alert, it will be necessary for the indicators to remain at a lower risk level for a minimum period of 14 days.

Limit social contacts as much as possible

In this sense, for the areas with the highest incidence, that is, those that are at a high alert level, since the document does not reflect actions for the extreme level, Health advises limiting social contacts as much as possible, social gatherings of up to six people, recommend staying at home and limiting opening hours to the public until 10 pm in establishments with non-essential service.

However, in the specific case of catering and hotel establishments, it is stated that it will be the health authority who must assess the closure of the interior areas of the establishments, and failing that, reduce the capacity to the maximum possible. The establishments may provide a local pick-up service, home delivery or vehicle pick-up at all alert levels.

In these high-risk areas, the need is also established for the population to be advised to avoid closed spaces where activities incompatible with the use of masks are carried out and many people attend (such as gyms); and assess the limitation of entrances and exits from the evaluated territorial area, except for essential activities; go only to work for specific meetings.

It is also proposed to limit the capacity of wakes, burials and funeral ceremonies to a maximum of 10 people in closed spaces and 20 in open spaces; postpone, if possible, weddings, baptisms or communions and, if not, comply with the capacity set at the wakes; and suspend activities in day, disabled or recreational centers for the elderly and young; among many other measures.

Capacity limitations in stores and hotels, which must close at 10 p.m., including

The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, met this Thursday at the Palacio de San Telmo in Seville with the Advisory Council for High Impact Public Health Alerts to address the situation of the Covid-19 pandemic in the community. A meeting in which a series of measures have been put on the table that have later been transferred to the meeting of the Governing Council.

The Minister of the Presidency, Public Administration and the Interior, Elías Bendodo, and the Minister of Health and Families, Jesús Aguirre, participated in that meeting, who later communicated during a press conference in which Carmen Crespo, from Almeria, was also present, Minister of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development, the measures taken.

Aguirre stressed that the growth of positive coronavirus in Andalusia is being "constant" in all Andalusian provinces, "except in Almería", where the development of the curve is slower.

Therefore, the Board has decided to extend the restrictions that Granada capital and other towns in its metropolitan area already suffer to the cities of Seville, Córdoba and Jaén. Likewise, it is proposed that in Granada there is a curfew from 11 pm to 6 am, once it is published in the BOJA and they have the endorsement of the TSJA so that it can be carried out with all the legal guarantees.

Likewise, the Andalusian Government has decided to take more restrictive measures with regard to the practice of sport and hospitality customers.

In this sense, those who practice sports outdoors in places where there are people should always wear a mask. And the customers of bars and restaurants will have to always have it on, "and only take it off to eat," Aguirre said, both at the table and at the bar.

More restrictive measures for Los Gallardos

Regarding the measures that affect the province of Almería, the Minister of Health has announced that there will be a screening of rapid antigen tests in Los Gallardos, a town that must also comply with the same restrictions in terms of capacity that are already present in Granada since the publication of the BOJA on October 14.

That is: visits and exits of users of social health centers are prohibited, attendance at wakes is reduced to a maximum of 15 people outdoors (10 indoors), the capacity of commercial premises is limited to 50% and it is marked as closing time is 22 hours (except essential services) and the occupation of tables in bars and restaurants is reduced to a maximum of six people, which must close at 22 hours and whose capacity may not exceed 50%.

In addition, the clubs and cultural and recreational associations must remain closed, the markets are closed, the limit of 30 people is put in weddings and other civil and religious ceremonies, the occupation of sports facilities is reduced to 50 percent, and not in groups of more than 6 people, and activity in parks and gardens is suspended, in addition to reinforcing preventive measures in public buildings.

For Elías Bendodo, Andalusia is at a "decisive moment" in the Covid-19 crisis. so he asks "responsibility for everyone, especially for the youngest", since "difficult times are coming." "We know that they are tough measures but necessary to stop the advance of the pandemic," he said.

The advisory council

The Advisory Council for High Impact Public Health Alerts is made up of the Deputy Minister of Health and Families, Catalina García; the general director of Public Health and Pharmaceutical Management, José María de Torres; the managing director of the Andalusian Health Service, Miguel Ángel Guzmán, and the territorial delegates of the Ministry of Health and Families.

In addition, the managing director of the Public Health Emergencies Company (EPES), José Luis Pastrana; the general director of Occupational Health and Surveillance, Nicola Lorusso; the Deputy Director of Health Assistance, Inmaculada Vázquez, and the Deputy Director of Health Protection, Ulises Ameyugo.

The balance is out of balance again: 127 cases, 1 deceased and 1 cured since yesterday

The latest data update leaves 2 new hospitalized

The province of Almería once again exceeds one hundred cases of coronavirus a day, following the trend of the weekend and moving away from the 'green shoots' experienced in the days near the Pilar bridge, where about 60 positives were recorded each day.

According to the new update of the Institute of Statistics and Cartography of the Junta de Andalucía, this Monday leaves 127 more positives compared to Sunday, in addition to one death and two new hospitalized, none in the ICU. The balance is thus very unbalanced, since in the last 24 hours there has only been a new epidemiological discharge.

These 127 more cases have been reported from what is now called PDIA (Active Infection Diagnostic Tests), which includes all cases of Covid-19 with active infection, confirmed by PCR technique or rapid antigen tests.

In Andalusia as a whole, Almería is the third province in which there have been fewer cases, behind Cádiz, with 92, and Huelva, with 75. Seville leads the infections reported after PCR and antigen tests with 444, followed by Granada with 379, Jaén with 215, Malaga with 207 and Córdoba with 169.

As for those cured, of the total of 101 people who have received epidemiological discharge in Andalusia, only 1 belongs to the province of Almería.

Thus, there are currently 2,628 active coronavirus cases in the Almeria geography: a total of 9,769 people have contracted the virus while 7,012 have already overcome it and 129 people have lost their lives since the start of the pandemic.

Regarding the limit rate of 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants within 14 days, which could lead, according to Health criteria, to propose a new confinement for those territories, the Almeria town of Los Gallardos shoots up to the rate of 894 , 8 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last two weeks. The increase has been evident during the weekend, since this Monday there are a total of 31 confirmed positives, 15 more than on Friday.

The rest of the municipalities of Almería do not reach the limit rate of 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, although Albox borders it with 491.3. Other localities with high rates are Huércal-Overa, which is at 449.6 points; Dalías, at 449.3; Vera, with 437.6; and Pulpí, with 407.8.

The 5 keys of the experts to reduce the chances of getting infected

Receive visitors with open windows, avoid closed spaces and less affection at Christmas

The coronavirus pandemic continues its unstoppable advance throughout the country and the question of how coronavirus infections can be avoided both inside and outside the home haunts many people's heads. Scientific experts are aware of the most common problems that citizens face in their daily lives and offer some answers to reduce the risk of contracting coronavirus as much as possible.

José Antonio López Guerrero is the director of the neurovirology group at the Autonomous University of Madrid and participated this Friday in 'Hora 25' of Cadena SER, together with Eva Elisa Álvarez, spokesperson for the Spanish Society of Preventive Medicine and Public Health and Hygiene, to answer questions from Pepa Bueno and the audience of the program about how to act during the cold months to fight the coronavirus.

1 - Closed spaces

"Although the WHO remains reluctant to claim that aerosols transmit the virus, it is not questioned that there are up to 20 times more possibilities of transmission than in open spaces and more if they are poorly ventilated. We must avoid closed, non-ventilated, crowded and closeness to other people ".

2 - Ventilation of the house

"If only one family unit lives in a house, you have to ventilate about twice a day during cleaning. If we receive visitors, complying with the norm of 6 maximum, open the windows before the visit, keep them partially open during the visit and also do it after the visit. We will spend more on heating by having those windows open. In an average house, opening four fingers would suffice, but in a larger house it would be necessary to adjust it. You can tell if a house is well ventilated, there is options that are not prohibitive for many pockets. If a passenger compartment lacks air and there is poor circulation, CO2 accumulates. There are devices such as a mobile that measure CO2. The average CO2 is 400 parts per million. From 700 parts per million million, the air begins to be a bit stale. Above 1,000 we have a problem. These devices are useful and are not a bad option in centers or schools to measure the purity of the cabin. "

3 - In the workplace

"Smart buildings are smart until a pandemic hits. The ventilation has to be artificial using air conditioners. The air flow has to go from top to bottom and we have to try to keep the air from going horizontally. If possible there is regeneration of the air. If not, in this case he will have to wear a mask. For him to ventilate himself and go outside will not solve it. The logical thing would be to report him to the authorities of that center. For him to leave the office it doesn't fix the situation. "

4 - School transport and private transport

"The regulations suggest that the school bus be clean and well disinfected, that the children are always the same, that it be a bubble group and if it is possible that it has windows that can be opened. If it is not possible, I know that there are mechanisms mechanical ventilation with filters such as those found in airplanes. Otherwise it would not be the most recommended means. In the car, the recirculation function is what to avoid, because what it does is that the air in the car comes out and is go in. The windows have to be down as much as possible, the masks always have to be on and you have to use common sense, that the air that comes from outside only comes from outside and there is no recirculation of air ".

5 - Christmas

"At Christmas we do not know how we will be but we will continue in a pandemic. There is a document from the Junta de Andalucía called 'Meetings with a head' and that gives advice. Outdoors or ventilated spaces. Avoid kisses and hugs, especially with people older and vulnerable Maintain a distance of one and a half meters between non-cohabitating people Cohabitants must be grouped and separated from non-cohabitants Do not sit face to face and sit in a zigzag Do not share dishes because the virus can be transmitted. Better to serve one person to all or put individual servings. Wear the mask. Wash your hands. Reduce the duration of the meetings. Do not turn the music too loud. "

The Hospital de Poniente will go from 12 ICU beds to 27 and will expand emergencies by 54%

The Ministry of Health invests 6.4 million euros in works originated due to the pandemic and which must be completed before December 31, 2020

The emergency area will gain almost 1,000 square meters, but for the moment there will be no expansion of staff

More than double the number of ICU beds of the current ones, going from 12 (with the possibility of 13) to 27; about 1,000 more square meters for emergencies, which means 54% more surface area; and a reorganization of spaces from which other services such as hemodialysis can benefit. The Poniente Hospital is undertaking these days some works classified as "historic" by the managing director of the Poniente Public Agency and the hospital itself located in El Ejido, Pedro Acosta, who this Friday received the delegate of Health and Families, Juan de la Cruz Belmonte, on a tour of the work that is being undertaken.

The works, which emerged as a result of the health crisis triggered by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, were more than necessary for years and will involve an investment of 6.4 million euros for which, as both public representatives have highlighted, It is "the hospital that attends a greater number of emergencies in Andalusia".

It is a historic moment in the health agency. The needs of the population are growing and for a long time the hospital needed some important structural adaptation ", Pedro Acosta is sincere, who emphasizes that" we are the Andalusian hospital that attends more emergencies and our situation began to be a bit overwhelming. With these works I am sure that we will be able to better serve the population of the region. "

The effort made by the Junta de Andalucía "has been very important," says delegate Juan de la Cruz Belmonte, who stresses that "it is a very important investment for needs that this hospital suffered for a long time." Belmonte does not obvious that "it is a historical need for this area, to be able to provide Poniente Almeriense with the basic needs in emergencies and ICUs".
More space and equipment, but no more staff

At the moment these expansion and restructuring works of spaces will not entail an expansion of the healthcare staff, although Pedro Acosta understands that "we are going to make an adaptation of the spaces, but obviously the increase in the area of ​​the ICU and Emergency is important, and that in due course will bring about a modification of the personnel needs that will be studied with the Ministry, one thing has to lead to another ".

The deputy director of Infrastructures of the Health delegation, Ramón Estrada, has been in charge of offering technical details, who explains that "the expansion of the ICU will be 68% and in addition reforms will be undertaken in the existing facilities, some works that are being carrying out side by side with healthcare professionals, in a coordinated manner to arrive at a perfectly valid solution, going from 12, with the current possibility of a 13th, to 27 beds, with areas for isolated patients, for respiratory patients, auxiliary spaces. . ".

As for the Emergencies, they will grow "around 54%, 920 more square meters of expansion. We are going fast, but with a safe step". One of the main gains in Emergencies, will be, highlights, "child care, which is going to be significantly expanded and improved." Similarly, in the Emergency Department "what is being done is the adult observation part, waiting rooms, some consultations will be expanded and the urgent child care unit; and other non-healthcare spaces that we are going to remove from the purely welfare part to allow a better use of the spaces ".

Almería exceeds the red line of one hundred cases in a record day in Andalusia

Almería is the only province that has not added deaths in the last 24 hours

The pandemic is triggered in Andalusia, where this Friday a new record is recorded in this second wave of the pandemic, and the province of Almería accompanies these figures, by exceeding the red line of one hundred cases of coronavirus.

The Andalusian community has added 2,928 positives confirmed by PCR and antigen tests on October 16, according to data consulted by the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography (IECA), which accounts for 29 deaths in 24 hours, the third highest number of deaths in this wave.

After several days below one hundred positives, the province increases considerably the new cases and reaches 112 this Friday. Despite these figures, Almería is still the second Andalusian territory with fewer positives registered in the last 24 hours: only Huelva is behind.

On this day there are two Andalusian provinces that have registered more than 700 infections: Seville once again leads the increase in affected people, with 788 cases, followed by Granada with 735. Jaén has added 458 cases, Córdoba 312 and Málaga 263. Below of 200 cases, Cádiz appears with 170, Almería with 112 and Huelva with 90.

Almería is the only province that has not added deaths in the last 24 hours. Of the 29 deaths registered this Friday throughout Andalusia, nine have been recorded in Seville, five in Córdoba and Granada, four in Cádiz, three in Huelva, two in Malaga and one in Jaén.

Of the least affected
 
Despite this increase in the number of cases, the province remains, along with Huelva, among the areas least affected by the virus in this second wave.

After the initial rebound that caused the logical alarm in the province by leading for weeks the daily records of detected cases, hospitalizations and admitted patients, the evolution is at least much better than in other Andalusian provinces.

Despite this, events such as the Benahadux party, in which 34 people were evicted (who shared a hookah, did not have a mask and did not keep a safety distance) set off alarms among political and health officials at the appearance of a possible outbreak.
