COVID-19 claims another four lives despite the slowdown in the wave of infections with 249 positives

5,111 active cases and the highest cumulative incidence rate in Andalusia (438 infections per 100,000 inhabitants). "One out of every three patients admitted to the ICU does not come out alive", assures the delegate of the Board, Maribel Sánchez and calls for responsibility

The spread of the coronavirus continues to wreak havoc among the people of Almería and the daily report of the Ministry of Health and Families this Tuesday includes four new deaths of patients who presented complications from the COVID-19 infection. The death statistics since the beginning of the pandemic add up to 314 victims, a dozen in the last week, a worrying rebound that confirms the greater hospital pressure of the January slope of the coronavirus in the province. The third wave is here and it is palpable not only in the number of positives, but in the hospitals where admissions are multiplying and preparing for the worst scenario. Today there are 137 people, six more than there were yesterday Monday.

In the Intensive Care Unit, 41 people from Almería remain, four more than yesterday, a figure that has not stopped growing and is dangerously close to the maximum record of 47 on November 26. After yesterday's meeting of the COVID19 monitoring cabinet by the Almería health authorities, it was specified that one out of every three patients admitted to the ICU due to coronavirus ends up dying. "COVID can kill any family member of ours, let's not make the wound in these provinces bigger, in which more than 300 people have already lost their lives," argued the delegate of the Government of the Junta in Almería, Maribel Sánchez Torregrosa, in a Appeal to the responsibility of Almeria.

The report just sent by the Ministry of Health and Families reports 249 new cases in the municipalities of the province, a figure that, while still high, constitutes a brake on the curve that this Monday reached the record with 655 infections. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the virus has infected 24,522 people including the 249 new cases detected in the last hours through Active Infection Diagnostic Tests (PDIA), confirmed by PCR technique or rapid antigen tests, of which 2,123 have been reported in the last seven days and 3,162 in a two-week period.

And it has more than done so: this Monday, according to the Andalusian Institute of Cartography and Statistics (IECA), there are 655 positives notified through PDIA (antigen test and PCR).

"We have more viruses than ever in the streets of our province. We can only help stop the virus, help our health professionals, being more responsible than ever," said Sánchez, who has appealed to the "individual responsibility" of Almeria to face what, he says, will be "the worst wave since March 12".

"This Christmas many people have done well but other behaviors have left much to be desired. We have to show that we are going to measure up, because we are going to suffer the worst wave of all. Many lives are at stake, let's not screw up, Let's not spoil it anymore, "he stressed.

In Andalucia

In the rest of the community, the situation is not much more encouraging: the week begins with 4,896 cases of coronavirus, the highest number since November 7, when 4,993 were added.

By provinces, Malaga leads the infections with 1,035, followed by Cádiz with 952 and Seville with 698. Almería is the fourth province with the most cases, the aforementioned 655, followed by Granada with 647, Córdoba with 433, Jaén with 318 and Huelva with 158 .

Andalusia will tighten the restrictions against the covid from January 10

Aguirre says they will be a little more restrictive given the latest parameters of the pandemic

Andalusia is clear that it will be necessary to tighten the measures once Christmas passes. The Minister of Health and Families, Jesús Aguirre, has indicated that, "taking into account the latest parameters" that are coming to them, the measures to stop the expansion of the coronavirus as of January 10 will be "a little more restrictive than those that they are currently in force "in Andalusia.

Thus, in an interview on Cadena Ser, collected by Europa Press, Aguirre recalled that this afternoon there is a meeting of the technical teams and "possibly on the 8th there will be a meeting of the High Impact Committee on Public Health, where the experts will make proposals according to the evolution until that day, and at that moment we will have to take the appropriate measures, since the decree of the president and the orders of this Ministry decline on the 10th, and before that day we will have to take more or less restrictive measures according to the evolution ".

"Possibly and taking into account the latest parameters that are coming to us, they are a little more restrictive than those currently in force," said Aguirre, who also stressed that "we are at a good cruising speed on the subject of vaccination, since we have not rested during the holidays. "

The idea, he added, "is to have one hundred percent of the residences for the elderly vaccinated in the first round by January 14, and prepare for the second round in 21 days, which I estimate will begin by the end of January." "We are going at a good speed because there is no rest; it is the most powerful weapon we have to fight the virus and although many vaccines arrive, we will have the ability to put them without any problem," he stressed.

Asked if he trusts that the contagion level will soon be reduced, the Health Minister stated that "you have to be very careful, it is not worth saying I have been vaccinated and I am already lowering my hands from a preventive point of view," while has assured that "he would like to reach a group vaccination of 60 or 70% as soon as possible", although he added that "seeing the cadence of vaccines that they are sending us, at least until the end of spring or the beginning of summer we will not have a medium tranquility regarding the spread of the virus ".

Regarding the new British strain of the virus and the new cases detected in Andalusia, Aguirre has shown his "concern", firstly because "it is much more contagious, with 70% more contagiousness, which means that its expansion can be much faster ", while adding that" we still have to evaluate virulence, because it can be more contagious and with less virulence, and then it would have less significance from a clinical point of view, and we will have to be clear about whether the vaccine is effective for new strain, for which we need scientific evidence. "

"All this is under study but what is a reality is that the strain is spreading and we currently have seven confirmed cases, nine under study that will possibly be confirmed throughout the day, and we have areas in which the influence can be more important as is the area of ​​Malaga or Cádiz, "he pointed out, while adding that" we try to stop the expansion of this strain, and the fact that in Campo de Gibraltar a perimeter closure of areas and municipalities is to avoid stopping or slowing down the diffusion ". "Logically we are concerned because with that contagiousness that it has over time it will become the predominant strain".

"We don't have high frequency"

On the other hand, the counselor has assured that "there is not much saturation", to underline that hospital emergencies and primary care "fell by 30% in November". In addition, he has stated that in the first fortnight of December "hospital emergencies fell by 40%, and in the second fortnight, emergencies at the hospital and health center level by 50%." "We have a lot of work, but we don't have high frequentation, which has allowed professionals to enjoy their well-deserved vacations."

2021 - living with the virus

Google translation:

Marín: "The vaccine will not make the virus disappear, we will live with it"

The Board will carry out an information campaign about the vaccine and "will not do demagoguery"

The vice president of the Board and Minister of Tourism, Regeneration, Justice and Local Administration, Juan Marín, has stated that the Andalusian Government will launch an information and awareness campaign for citizens on the vaccination process against the coronavirus, and has wanted to make it clear that neither "demagoguery" is going to be carried out, nor will a "confrontation" with the national Executive be sought on this matter.

In an interview with Europa Press, Marín explained that in this campaign on vaccination, information about where the vaccination teams are, the fixed ones (48 hospitals and 45 health centers) and the itinerant ones will be transferred to the public, with more than 400 professionals who have been specifically trained to dispense this vaccine.

Likewise, Juan Marín has wanted to make it clear, given the vaccination process and the distribution of vaccines among the communities, that the Junta is not going to "demagogue" or generate "confrontation" with the central government, because "we have always demonstrated the loyalty "with the National Executive in the actions to fight against the pandemic.

"When we have been told this is the distribution, this is the distribution, these are the deadlines and these are the times, we have always been at the disposal of the central government and more in terms of health," as indicated Marín. "We are not going to do demagogy with the distribution of the vaccine. That which others do. I leave it to Mrs. Susana Díaz, who knows how to do it very well," according to Juan Marín.

He recalled that the Board suggested to the central government that the criteria for the distribution of vaccines should be population and, instead, "we know that, in some cases, the issue of affected people is being used."

Vaccines

He has indicated that, according to the Board, over the next twelve weeks more than 800,000 doses of vaccines will arrive in Andalusia, which will be administered to all people at risk and to the target population. . He is confident that the number of doses can be increased with the arrival of Moderna's vaccine as well.

The vice president also explained that as more doses of vaccines are received, the human and material resources will have to be increased so that the vaccine reaches the public as soon as possible.

Juan Marín has considered "excessive" the propaganda display of the central government with the arrival of the vaccine, when it is necessary to act "with prudence" because there are still many people who are afraid of the vaccine, which should lead to awareness campaigns so that citizens know the advantages that getting vaccinated can bring.

In his opinion, although the vaccine is not mandatory, but will be something "totally voluntary", it is necessary to convey to the public that getting vaccinated will have its advantages when traveling or attending some events, as the Andalusian system health will give every person who is vaccinated a certificate that they are immunized.

Marín also pointed out that citizens have to know clearly that the vaccine will not mean the disappearance of the virus, but that we will have to live with it.

Regarding the objective of the Board that half of the Andalusian population is vaccinated when summer arrives, Marín has indicated that it is a "very realistic" forecast, which will also depend on whether citizens want to be vaccinated.

Decision on any changes to rules in Andalucía due on Monday 28 December

Andalusia already has a date to decide whether to toughen the measures

"I hope there will be no exchange rate until January 10," said Juan Marín

The vice president of the Board and Minister of Tourism, Regeneration, Justice and Local Administration, Juan Marín, has stated that the expert committee that advises the Andalusian Government on the coronavirus pandemic already has a date to analyze the situation in these first days of the Christmas parties and has hoped that the current restrictions will not have to be "tightened".

In an interview with Cadena Ser, collected by Europa Press, Marín stated that, at this time, it is not necessary to "harden" the measures to contain the pandemic, in view of the data on infections in the Andalusian community and he pointed out that the number of people hospitalized and those admitted to the ICU is still falling.

"This does not mean that we can lower the alert, but it is true that the situation in Andalusia at the moment favors the possibility of economic activity" at this Christmas time, according to the vice president, who added that if at some point should there be a change in trend, the restrictions would logically "tighten".

In this sense, he has indicated that the committee of experts will meet on Monday 28 to analyze the situation and will be all Christmas pending any report that points to a change in trend: "I hope there will be no type of change until 10 from January".

As for the start of vaccination against the coronavirus from Sunday, he is confident that in the first quarter of the year the health pressure will be reduced significantly and that there will be more and more immunized population and that the second half of the year may be more normalized in personal relationships and the activation of the economy.

He has pointed out that the information they have from the epidemiological and health services indicates that the vaccine that is going to begin to be given on Sunday has an efficiency level that exceeds 90 percent, "with which we fully trust that this is the solution. ".

Marín pointed out that the logistics are very complicated, but Andalusia is "prepared to be able to vaccinate now", and the important thing is that in the shortest possible time, the vulnerable population and health professionals are immune to the virus and, from there, the rest of the population is vaccinated to the extent that each one considers, because the vaccine is voluntary.

central government

Regarding the management of the central government, he has indicated that it has acted very unevenly throughout the pandemic, but Andalusia has always maintained "loyalty."

Likewise, he has indicated that the Board will not have done things "very badly", when today the community has the best data in Spain regarding the incidence of the coronavirus. He has pointed out that decisions have always been taken by the hand of the expert committee and has recognized that some measures are "unpopular", but necessary to save lives.

In this sense, he has said that the reaction of hoteliers in Andalusia to the restrictions on the hospitality sector has seemed "disproportionate" to him. He has indicated that he has met with them many times and they have asked him questions that they have tried to implement, such as interprovincial or inter-territorial mobility.

In his opinion, the sector has not been aware that when the decisions have been made it is because there were reports that said that of 487 outbreaks that occurred in the last 14 days, when it was decided to close the hospitality sector from six to At eight o'clock in the afternoon, 197 had occurred in entertainment venues and cocktail bars, something that he himself transferred to the hoteliers.

"They were informed at all times, and the reaction was disproportionate," according to Marín, who added that unlike the total closures that were decreed in other communities, here in Andalusia many hospitality businesses can open up to 14 hours.

 

Data for the last 48 hours (as no stats yesterday as it was Xmas day) - 175 more cases and 2 more deaths

The coronavirus returns with two deaths and leaves 175 new positives in 48 hours

The pressure in the hospitals drops to 89 admitted and there are more than 300 recovered

Two days after the arrival of the last part with the epidemiological progress of the pandemic, the Ministry of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucía has updated the data of the covid in the eight Andalusian provinces and in Almería it has arrived with two new deaths and 175 positives for coronavirus diagnosed in the last 48 hours.

The province arrived on Christmas Eve with five deceased people and the first report after the Christmas holiday has been presented with two other deaths that leave the total of people from Almería who have lost the covid during the pandemic in 284. Also, with the 175 infections diagnosed from last December 24 to 07:00 this morning, Almería adds a total of 20,633 positives detected by antigen and PCR tests, that is, the tests that the Junta de Andalucía designates as PDIA.

Regarding hospital pressure, the province of Almería has registered a decrease in the last 48 hours, which has left 89 hospitalized, compared to the 94 notified on Christmas Eve, of which 26 are in serious condition in Intensive Care. A decrease that is a consequence of the departures registered in the last two days and the scarce admissions that have occurred, since four people from Almeria have been admitted, two of them in the ICU.

For its part, the patients recovered this Saturday are 307, bringing the total to 17,082. In the same way, throughout the autonomous community of Andalusia today has been a good day of recoveries, since there are more than 3,000 patients who in the last 24 hours have said goodbye to the virus. Likewise, the positives today do not exceed 1,500, they have been 1,410, and the deaths registered in Andalusia have been 32.

Finally, the hospital pressure in the rest of Andalusian hospitals is as follows: Cádiz (156 hospitalizations, of which 42 in ICU), Córdoba (99 hospitalizations, of which 19 in ICU), Granada (182 hospitalizations, of which 50 in ICU), Huelva (54 hospitalizations, of which 11 in ICU), Jaén (106 hospitalizations, of which 24 in ICU), Malaga (146 hospitalizations, of which 17 in ICU) and Seville (143 hospitalizations, of which which 47 in ICU).

 

Looks like Almería 360 is having problems with the cumulative stats today - so I cannot publish the data at the moment. I will try to update it later today or tomorrow.
