Coronavirus: I breathe in Almería today as the figures soar in Andalusia

The province does not register deaths from Covid-19 for the first time in ten days and adds 60 infections

While the daily coronavirus infections in the last 24 hours are overflowing in Andalusia (1,551 positives through PCR, the second highest figure since the de-escalation ended), the situation in Almería seems to reach some stability: for the first time in the last ten days there is no need to mourn deaths and 60 new cases have been diagnosed, with three more hospitalizations (none in the ICU) and 69 people recovered.

According to the daily report sent by the Ministry of Health and Families of the Board, Almería is the second province in which there have been fewer infected in the last day, only behind Huelva, which has registered 35 positives. Malaga top the list, with 511 infections, Seville, with 405, and Cádiz, with 200. Then Granada (133), Córdoba (132) and Jaén (75 more cases) appear.

The number of hospitalized patients is also growing in the whole of the autonomous community, 110 more than yesterday, although only 3 have been admitted to centers in Almeria. At the moment, Almería has 43 hospitalized for coronavirus, 14 of them in Intensive Care.

This figure represents 4.2% of the total number of patients confirmed with Covid-19 in Andalusian hospitals, reaching 1,019, of which 136 are in the ICU. By provinces, the situation is especially worrying in Seville (287 people hospitalized, 33 in the ICU) and Malaga (213 hospitalized, 31 in the ICU).

Fortunately, this Wednesday there is no need to regret any death in the province of Almería due to the virus: it is the first time in ten days that this indicator, now located at 112 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic, has not increased. In Andalusia, 12 more deaths have been registered: 4 in Granada, 3 in Córdoba, 3 in Seville, 1 in Cádiz and 1 in Malaga.

And again, according to the figures released by Health, those cured in Almería outnumber the new positives in PCR. This Wednesday leaves 69 more people who have received the epidemiological discharge. In the community as a whole there are 731 recovered this day, 25,590 since the beginning of the health crisis.

In this way, there are currently 3,440 active coronavirus cases in the Almeria geography: a total of 7,564 people have contracted the virus while 4,012 have already overcome it and 112 people have lost their lives.

Almería today: the cured triple the new coronavirus infections

The curve of this second wave softens in the province

Andalusia registers 1,536 cases of coronavirus confirmed by PCR this Tuesday, almost double the 812 registered on Monday, this being the second largest daily increase since the start of the pandemic last March. These bad data from the Andalusian community contrast with those of the province.

And it is that Almería has lowered this day to 47 notified positives, although there have been 65 infections that have occurred in 24 hours, leaving behind the figures of previous days in which the hundred new cases were far exceeded. In the day yesterday, the province added 90 positives. In this way, the curve of this second wave has softened in the province in recent days.

In the last 24 hours, the number of people who have managed to overcome Covid-19, which has been 151, triples that of new positives.

But one more day, Almería has to mourn a new death, placing the number of people with coronavirus who have lost their lives since the start of the pandemic at 112.

The figures released this Tuesday by the Andalusian Regional Government Health Department also show three more hospitalizations and one admission to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

Community-wide data

In Andalusia, the daily number of infections reaches its second highest level since the beginning of the pandemic, exceeding the 1,617 registered last Friday, September 18 and above the 1,480 positives on Saturday, September 19.

The province with the highest number of positives in the last 24 hours is once again Malaga, with 547, followed by Seville, with 407. Córdoba is well behind, with 175; Granada, with 141; and Cádiz, with 133. Below the hundred are Jaén, with 74; Almería, with 47; and Huelva, with 12.

The 12 deaths this Tuesday, two less than the day before, are mainly concentrated in the provinces of Malaga, with four, and Seville, with three, to which are added two in Cádiz and Córdoba and one in Almería.

The Junta de Andalucía  says that the Poniente health region is a high risk coronavirus area (with almost 4 times the cases needed to reach the high risk category) - no fireworks in Dalías this year

https://www.lavozdealmeria.com/noticia/3/provincia/200813/la-junta-alerta-la-situacion-epidemiologica-en-el-poniente-es-de-alto-riesgo

The Board warns: "The epidemiological situation in the West is high risk"

The incidence of the coronavirus in the region leaves Dalías without its traditional celebrations

The Junta de Andalucía is clear about it, the advance of the coronavirus pandemic in the Poniente health district is truly worrying. This has been made known in a letter sent to the Dalías City Council and in which Salud announces its decision not to celebrate the traditional 'traca' of fireworks in the Dalian municipality on the occasion of the Cristo de la Luz.

"The accumulated contagion rate considered as a high risk of transmission is almost four times exceeded." With this phrase, the Ministry of Health and Families has left the municipality of Dalías without its traditional festivities, considering them "very high risk", which makes it clear that the epidemiological situation in the easternmost region of the province of Almería keeps alert the authorities, as they have seen that among its more than 265,000 inhabitants, almost 3,500 positives have been reported at the moment.

Thus, in the last week there have been 286 infections detected by PCR, 762 if the count has been made for 14 days. In addition, currently active cases, that is, patients who are still sick with covid-19, are at least 1,735.

For its part, in the municipality of Dalías, among its just over 4,000 inhabitants, 37 positives have been detected since March, all of them by PCR, one in the last week and two since 14 days ago. Low figures but which, added to those of the rest of the region, have led the Junta de Andalucía to issue the report with which the Sub-delegation of the Government of Spain in Almería has put on the table its arguments for the Christ de la Luz this year do not count on fireworks or open bars and pubs.

The decision has not sat well in the municipality of Dalías, where the mayor raised his voice this Saturday to denounce: "We have asked for security for our neighbors and what they have done is to exceed the control and surveillance of our streets and causing the closure of some bars and pubs. We were offered protection, not persecution, to our neighbors ", explains the councilor, Francisco Giménez.

Today saw the first increase in the 7 day average daily number of cases figure for El Ejido since a little over a week ago. The 14 day average figure for cases in El Ejido is lower today. After a blip upwards last Friday.

Although these downward trends in the number of cases in the El Ejido area is some good news. It should be noted that in terms of cases per 100,000 people the figures still show the area as being HIGH RISK. As mentioned in the article above about the cancellation of events in Dalías last weekend.

Rapid antigen tests in residential centers for the elderly and disability

This is the fifth round of tests carried out in residences throughout Andalusia

The Ministry of Health and Families begins to apply rapid antigen tests in homes for the elderly and disability throughout Andalusia. Likewise, the Minister of Health and Families, Jesús Aguirre, has announced this new measure “which will constitute a fundamental tool to contain the spread of the virus thanks to its high level of effectiveness and speed since it allows detecting a virus protein at the current moment and its results are obtained in just 15 minutes ”.

Accompanied by the general director of Social and Health Care, José Repiso, the counselor stressed that "the vocation of the Ministry is to continue prioritizing residences for the elderly and disabled as a space of vulnerability."

Counselor Jesús Aguirre has added that “this type of test will allow a systematic screening in the population that is proving to be more fragile against the virus, for this reason we maintain our commitment to continue carrying out antigen tests with a frequency that allows us know the situation of the social health centers ”.

Random in residents of each center

Specifically, systematic tests will be carried out on workers in each center who have not had a Covid-19 infection in the previous 6 months; In the event of any positive, the test will be performed on all residents. Independently, a random screening of residents of each center who have not had the disease in the last 6 months will also be carried out. Likewise, tests will be carried out on the income and return of users and workers 48 hours prior to their entry.

Rapid antigen tests allow the substitution of PCR tests for their similar guarantee in the diagnostic determination of COVID-19. The sample is obtained through a swab inserted through the nose with the advantage that it does not require reading instruments, so it can be performed outside the laboratory. Andalusia has a stock of one million of these tests.

But the deaths have increased again today in the province, where a new patient has lost his life, an elderly resident in Vícar, and raises the number of deaths from coronavirus to 110 since March, the second lowest data collected in Health statistics, where only Huelva has fewer deaths by adding just half, 55.

In quarantine a classroom of Sixth Primary of the CEIP Mirasierra

Despite the fact that the child's parent had tested positive for Covid-19, he decided to take the child to the educational center without notifying the school administration

The course starts and the prevention protocols against Covid-19 begin to be activated in educational centers. Despite the fact that schools and institutes are working to ensure that all hygiene and safety regulations are respected, and students as a general rule are complying with all of them, the risk of contagion at any time of the day outside the center continues to exist.

In this case, a sixth grade classroom at CEIP Mirasierra, in the ejido nucleus of Las Norias, is in quarantine after learning that the parent of a student from that class had tested positive for Covid-19. Knowing her positive, she took the child to class.

After the notice was given by Health of the situation and the address of the center of the situation was known, the entire protocol was immediately activated, all parents were notified and the entire class was dislodged in just 20 minutes, leaving all the students in that group, who have already passed the screening tests and are awaiting the results, go home.

Meanwhile, the center has activated telematic classes, so that students can continue their training from home.

On the other hand, a group of 10 three-year-old children, also from this Las Norias school, is in home quarantine waiting to receive the results of the Covid-19 tests.

The coronavirus hits hard: 152 more positives and 4 deaths

After several days with fifty cases, Almería registers a significant rise

The optimism generated in the province after the data on the evolution of the pandemic in recent days jumps through the air after knowing the figures for this Thursday.

Almería has gone from confirming 49 cases of coronavirus this Wednesday to registering 152 new positives in 24 hours, returning to the worrying figures of a few days ago.

To this abrupt rise in infections in the last hours, we must add four new deaths in the province, according to data consulted by Europa Press on the website of the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography (IECA). With these new deaths, there are already 104 people who have lost their lives since the beginning of the pandemic last March.

The Junta de Andalucía made this Wednesday a call for caution after two days of encouraging data. “In Almería we are containing the spread of the virus and the number of hospitalizations is decreasing. Three or four weeks ago we reached about 120 and now we are reaching 60 or 70 hospitalizations. Therefore, we are happy with the evolution that the pandemic is taking in Almería, but we have to be prepared and that is why the Junta de Andalucía has created a Comprehensive Plan for the whole of Andalusia that will already be specified in this province ”, the delegate of Health, Juan de la Cruz Belmonte.

The beginning of the school year and its impact on the evolution of the pandemic in the province continues to worry. According to data provided this Thursday by the regional government, the coronavirus affects a total of twelve classrooms in eight educational centers in Huércal de Almería, Macael, the capital, Vícar and Cuevas del Almanzora. Covid has an impact on 0.30 percent of students and 0.40 percent of teachers.

Community-wide data

Andalusia adds this Thursday, September 17, 25 deaths from Covid-19 coronavirus and 1,389 cases confirmed by PCR, the highest daily increases of both parameters in the second wave of the pandemic.

The province with the highest number of positives in the last 24 hours is Malaga again, with 350, followed by Seville with 328, Cádiz with 179 and Almería with 152.

Please note that they have now decided to drop the data about number of people who have recovered from the virus. This has been replaced with a count of deaths.

I have updated my cumulative data to reflect this change.

 

Cumulative Almería 360 data about the province and municipalities (updated as described above)

AlmeriaCoronavirusStats17Sep2020

 Just a bit of commentary about the data above. For a change.

It looks like the average number of cases per day being reported in the El Ejido area is on a downward trend. Based on both the 14 and 7 day data.

However I have a feeling that we might see an increase in the El Ejido data in the next few days. As the council is doing mobile serology tests now. I think these will highlight people who have or have had the virus. Based on antibodies I think.

Anyone who tests positive in this way is then expected to take a PCR test. The PCR test shows whether you have the virus now.

The counts that are published generally are only results from PCR tests. So, I am assuming that some (but not all) of the people who tested positive in the serology tests in the last couple of days will soon be added to the counts of the number of PCR test positives.

I guess we will have to wait and see.

Almería reaches 100 deaths from Covid-19 since the start of the pandemic

The day leaves 49 new cases, 5 hospitalized (none in ICU) and 129 discharges

The coronavirus pandemic has claimed its 100th fatality in Almería since the beginning of the pandemic, just over six months ago. This Wednesday, the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography has announced the death of a man, a neighbor of Enix, between 75 and 79 years of age, which makes the province reach one hundred deaths due to Covid-19. Of those deaths, 26 have occurred so far in September.

Beyond this death, the latest data update (as of 7 a.m.) leaves only 49 new positives detected through PCR tests in the last 24 hours. It is a notable decrease compared to Tuesday, when 125 cases were reported, and a data that seems to support the idea that the contagion curve is easing in the province.

Wednesday also leaves 129 more epidemiological discharges and 5 hospitalized, none of them in the ICU. The data represents a respite, compared to the 16 hospitalized on Tuesday, one of them in Intensive Care. According to the Board, in Almería there are currently 68 hospitalizations due to the coronavirus; 17 of those patients are in the ICU.

All cases on Wednesday, September 16

By localities, the virus has had an impact in the last 24 hours in 18 municipalities where the 49 newly infected are.

Seven localities belonging to the Poniente Health District have left 24 positives in this Wednesday's statistics, almost half of the total for the province. Roquetas de Mar, in the lead with 9 infections, to which we must add 5 in El Ejido, 3 in Vícar, 2 in La Mojonera, 2 in Laujar de Andarax, 2 in Balanegra and 1 in Berja.

The only fatality reported today was located in Enix. It is the first death due to the disease registered in this town.

On the other hand, in El Ejido voluntary serological tests have begun to be carried out among the population with the figure of 27 provisional positives out of 230 tests carried out. Now, a second PCR test will confirm the contagion that will be added to the statistics in subsequent days.

In the Health District of Almería, the 17 new cases detected are centered in 6 municipalities: 8 of them in the capital Almería, 5 in Níjar and the remaining four in Benahadux, Huércal de Almería, Pechina and Viator.

And the Levante-Alto Almanzora Health District has contributed 6 more positives by PCR, concentrated in 5 locations: 2 in Cuevas del Almanzora and the other four in Albox, Vélez Blanco, Macael and Vera.

Two new cases have also been registered in "unspecified" municipalities of Almería (either because the patients are not registered in Almería, because they lack Spanish documentation or due to another type of error in data collection).

Active cases and outbreaks

At the moment, in the province of Almería as a whole there are 3,671 cases that are still active (the difference between the total number of infected and the sum of the deceased and recovered) and, therefore, susceptible to infect if they do not comply with the strict quarantine.

Of these, 1,653 active cases are registered in the Poniente health area. The District of Almería, for its part, adds 1,549 active cases, and that of Levante-Alto Almanzora, 300. The 169 remaining up to the total figure are located in "unspecified" Almeria municipalities.

Regarding the outbreaks in the residences for the elderly in El Zapillo, Terque and Vícar, the Junta de Andalucía, in its daily report, indicates that there is no news compared to yesterday.

The data included in this news item are extracted from the daily report published by the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography through the Ministry of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucía.

El Ejido: almost 30 positives out of 230 tests on the first day of testing

A PCR test will confirm or not the positive for coronavirus

The first round of voluntary serological tests among the population of the municipality of El Ejido has yielded a total of 27 provisional positives among 230 tests carried out, waiting for the infections to be confirmed with a second PCR test.

The covid-19 detection tests, which were carried out on Tuesday afternoon in the central Manolo Escobar street of the town as part of a campaign launched to identify asymptomatic cases especially among the vulnerable population or that may have been exposed. The virus will continue this Wednesday in the nucleus of Las Norias de Daza and on Friday, in the neighborhood of Santa María del Aguila.

The spokesman for Doctors of the World, Vladimir Morante, has valued in statements to Europa Press the response given by the population to this initiative, both because of the number of people gathered, and because the tests were carried out "in a calm, calm and without no conflict. "

"This initiative reveals how important it is to work in a coordinated manner between social entities and administrations to control the pandemic and prevent future infections," he remarked in reference to the joint collaboration of the Junta de Andalucía through the Territorial Delegation of Health and the District Sanitario Poniente, El Ejido town hall and "humanitarian personnel".

Morante has specified that, after the positive in the serological test, 27 people were referred to the Mobile Unit deployed in the area for the practice of PCR and that they are waiting for the results of the analysis of the samples .

"All this joint work is going to be very fruitful and, based on yesterday's experience, it will help not only to detect new cases but, above all, to make the population aware of how important it is to carry out the established measures to control and prevent contagion ", has moved.

In line with this, he added that, apart from the main objective of "raising awareness", which is also going to be achieved "by getting people who come to take the test to talk to their acquaintances and they also become aware", the campaign allows facilitating that those positive in Covid-19 can make a dignified quarantine ".

Morante alluded to the fact that most of the residents of El Ejido who attended the screening "are in a vulnerable situation" and stressed that this is "important, because we are reaching the population we wanted to reach."

"We have to count not only the people who have come, because, in our experience, what these types of activities do is raise awareness among the people who come and they, in turn, will raise awareness among those closest to them. positive because, in the end, it is like a chain to prevent future infections ", he concluded.

This action was preceded by a previous dissemination and awareness campaign carried out in recent days in collaboration with the Arab and Muslim community through the so-called "covid information groups", with which contagion prevention measures have also been transferred through word of mouth, WhatsApp and social networks.

The initiative was agreed upon in a work and coordination session to define joint awareness and sensitization actions aimed at controlling and curbing the number of Covid-19 cases among the immigrant population, "which registers the highest percentage of infections."

On the other hand, the City Council has already enabled the San Agustín Pavilion with a total of 30 beds, sheets and towels, showers, lockers and a recreation area to welcome people with a positive for Covid-19 who are asymptomatic and who lack adequate living space to pass the quarantine.

There are already more than 200 teachers and students isolated by Covid-19 in the province

The Board has decided to close the activity in a Huércal-Overa nursery


The first two weeks of activity in nurseries and Early Childhood and Primary Education centers in the province of Almería show the first official figures of the impact of the coronavirus on the school community.

To the data pointed out last Friday by the delegates of Education and Health, Antonio Jiménez and Juan de la Cruz Belmonte, respectively, others have been added this Monday that point to an accumulated of about 200 students and teachers who, for different reasons, have of quarantine in their homes for two weeks.

The Junta de Andalucía maintains that with the face-to-face return to classrooms at different levels, a “constant trickle” of positive cases and preventive isolations is expected. And this is happening in these first days of teaching activity in the province.

In Kindergarten and Primary alone, last week around 75,000 students joined class, a considerable volume of the population. That is, they represent 10 percent of the Almeria registered residents. And of them, along with the teachers, only about 200 have been affected.

First closure

According to Europa Press, the total closure of a nursery school in the municipality of Huércal-Overa, in the Levante, has already been decreed.

Specifically, the ‘Burbuja’ Nursery School has been closed, where last week a group of eight students and two monitors was isolated from a school coexistence.

And this same, Monday, a dozen students of the CEIP 'San Vicente' Primary Cycle, in the El Alquián neighborhood of Almería, have been placed in isolation after maintaining contact with a classmate who has tested positive for the detection of Covid-19.

Andalusian Government sources have indicated to Europa Press that the school unit has not been closed, since the teacher-tutor of the course wears a FPP2 mask, so it has not been considered a risk contact.

The Board has decided, on the contrary, to isolate the ten students who shared a classroom with the infected minor, but this Monday the schoolchildren who did not attend the CEIP that day have been incorporated into the classes.

This measure adds to the closure in the last hours of four Primary groups in the CEIP Alvarez de Sotomayor, in Cuevas del Almanzora, due to several cases of Covid-19 among the students.

Hundred in Caves

Sources from the regional and local administrations have specified that the closure of 4 classrooms at CEIP Cuevano affects a hundred schoolchildren, who have been placed in isolation although they have not specified how many of these students have tested positive in PCR.

The educational units affected are a sixth grade, two fourth grade and one third grade Primary and the origin of the outbreak would be, according to the first data, in the celebration of a communion.

At the beginning of the course, the Territorial Delegation of Education reported a positive in the Nursery School ‘Gruñones’ in La Cañada de Almería, which has led to the isolation of six students and one monitor; and another at the ‘Campanilla’ Nursery School in Huércal-Overa, for which a group of 13 students and a teacher have been isolated.

Almost a dozen teachers, isolated

Health has detected at least one teacher with Covid-19 infection in the CEIP Loma de Santo Domingo de El Ejido, who is isolated and had no contacts; one more in the CEIP ‘San Bernardo’ in the capital with the same characteristics; another at the ‘Lunares’ Nursery School in Aguadulce; and a fourth teacher at the ‘Sirenita’ Nursery School in Garrucha, who has forced the isolation of two cleaners due to possible contagion.

They were also in preventive isolation last week before possible contacts without having yet tested positive a teacher from the CEIP ‘Soledad Alonso’ de Gádor and two teachers from the CEIP ‘Virgen del Río’ in the Almeria municipality of Huércal-Overa.

The positives go back down to 53 in Almería, which adds another death

This Monday there are four more hospitalized and three new in ICU, as well as 47 recovered

The epidemiological curve of the coronavirus is presented again this Monday in Almería with its second consecutive decrease in the number of daily cases, which today are two less than the day before, with a total of 53 positive PCR tests since Sunday at 09:00: 30 hours until the same time today, as it appears in the data update of the Covid-19 portal of the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography of Andalusia.

With these 53 new positives, which come to add to the 161 praises on Saturday and the 55 yesterday, Sunday, there have been 269 cases detected throughout the weekend in the municipalities of Almeria, which already leaves a total of 6,458 infections confirmed by PCR, 6,737 if the rapid tests are added.

But this Monday the drop in positives is counteracted with the death of a new patient sick with covid-19, number 98, which comes after yesterday the first day without deaths of the month of September, where deaths among the Residents of the El Zapillo and Terque elderly center, 18, for the moment, have considerably increased the total number of patients who have lost their lives due to the coronavirus. Thus, over the weekend, two patients have died, one of them a resident of El Manantial, the nursing home located in the Alpujarra municipality of Terque.

In the section of hospitalized, there are already 632 in the province of Almería, which leaves an increase of four compared to the day before. Of these, 90 have needed to be admitted to an Intensive Care Unit, when they were 87 this Sunday, which translates into an increase of three new inpatients in the ICU. At the moment, the hospital load that the three Almeria hospitals, Torrecárdenas, Poniente and La Inmaculada maintain at this time, is not known, as the Junta de Andalucía has not yet facilitated its update, which will arrive in the next few hours.

Finally, it should be noted that the number of cured has once again experienced a significant rebound with 47 patients who have overcome the disease since 9:30 am this Sunday, bringing the total since March to 2,920.

Spectacular drop in positives in Almería, which only adds up to 55 this Sunday

The province also counts five cured, but one more patient in the ICU

Almería celebrates this Sunday's data, albeit with caution, since it had been at least two months since the province had a day with as few positives as this Sunday, when only 55 new infections were added to the total for the province, that is already of 6,405 infected diagnosed by PCR. The figures contrast with the new rebound experienced yesterday, with 161 positives in just 24 hours.

The 55 cases of this Sunday leave, in turn, an unusual situation in the table of statistics provided by the Ministry of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucía with the daily data of the pandemic, as Almería plummets to the second province with fewer positives in 24 hours, only surpassed by Huelva, which has added 34. The situation is more reminiscent of how the first wave of coronavirus affected the province of Almería than how it has affected since last July, when They have been continuously shooting cases until they are among the provinces with the highest incidence of covid in the entire country.

In the same way, today's data comes with more news that sows a bit of hope in the discouraging Almeria panorama that the pandemic had left, since in the last hours another five patients have recovered, with a total of 2,873. These are the only movements that have occurred this Sunday in the province, since the deaths remain at the same 97 as this Saturday.

We only have to regret one negative data, that of a patient who was already admitted to the ward in one of the three hospitals in Almeria and who has needed to be admitted to an Intensive Care Unit, which leaves the same 66 hospitalized yesterday, but one more in the ICU, with 13 currently. In the rest of the provinces, the hospital burden is as follows: Cádiz (114 hospitalizations, of which 16 in ICU), Córdoba (89 hospitalizations, of which 15 in ICU), Granada (97 hospitalizations, of which 11 in ICU) , Huelva (4 hospitalizations and none in the ICU), Jaén (39 hospitalizations, of which 7 in the ICU), Malaga (221 hospitalizations, of which 32 in the ICU) and Seville (188 hospitalizations, of which 18 in the ICU).

As for the outbreaks declared in nursing homes, the only ones that Salud reports daily, both the outbreak decreed yesterday in a nursing home in Vícar, the third of this second wave of the virus in the province, and those in El Zapillo and that of Terque have not presented variations with respect to this Saturday, so that of Vícar, 14 inmates and four workers remain with 18 positives; 119 that of Zapillo and 15 deaths; and 44 in Terque, where there are three deceased and only one of the 34 inmates has remained, for the moment, free from contracting the virus.

The positive of a minor would have forced the direction of the International School SEK Alborán de Almerimar (El Ejido) to put an entire class in quarantine, as confirmed to 'Diario de Almería' this Saturday sources close to the school, given the growing concern of several parents of students to whom this case was reported. Consulted by 'Diario de Almería', from the center there has been no confirmation or denial.

The SEK Alborán School started classes last Monday and the student who would have tested positive, belonging to the 1st year of Primary, would have attended the school the first two days of class, according to these same sources.

The period of time that the students of this 1st grade class of the SEK Alborán School will have to quarantine at their homes is still unknown.

El Ejido enables the sports pavilion to receive coronavirus positives

The objective is to achieve the isolation of these people and that they do not infect

The City Council of El Ejido (Almería) plans to set up a sports pavilion next week to provide a housing solution to people who obtain a positive result of covid-19 and who cannot quarantine in their habitual residence due to the risk of infecting other people, so that this resource will be specified before starting to carry out massive tests in certain nuclei with a special incidence of the disease; some tests that will start in the middle of the week.

The coronavirus touches 20 municipalities in Almería with 97 positives this Friday

Those who have reported the most today have been Almería, Roquetas and El Ejido, all with 16 new cases

This Friday has been like this and Almería has added another 97 cases of coronavirus that have been distributed in about twenty Almeria municipalities, among which stand out, another day, the largest.

El Ejido to open an "isolation centre" next week
 
 
Google translation:
 
El Ejido will open an isolation center for asymptomatic patients next week

The City Council is looking for a facility in which to locate a center with medical surveillance to deal with infections in cases of people without housing solution

It was an initial proposal of the Government of Spain that never materialized: the location of medicalized centers in which people with coronavirus but asymptomatic could spend the quarantine period avoiding infecting their partners. No autonomous community ever implemented one. The first one will premiere next week in El Ejido.

The City Council of the town works together with the Poniente District, the Poniente Hospital and the Territorial Delegation of the Ministry of Health and Families in the province of Almería in the provision of an infrastructure that allows housing asymptomatic patients who do not have a housing solution that allows them to remain completely isolated from the rest of their family members or roommates.

“There are cases of substandard housing in which large families live. If you test positive and due to the conditions in which you live you cannot isolate yourself, you are condemning the rest of the family to also pass the coronavirus ”, indicated an average position of the Andalusian public health system in Almería.

This is what you want to avoid with this measure. The region of Poniente in Almeria is today ground zero for Covid. It has the highest contagion rate in all of Andalusia (346.59 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days) and is among the highest in the country along with Lorca, Parla, Madrid or San Sebastián.

Today, the Consistory will sit again with representatives of the Health department in Almería to close the conditions that this center will need, which will in any case have health care from the SAS public services. At the moment, El Ejido City Council manages various municipal facilities for its location, including some large sports infrastructures. However, the decision is still pending the supervision of the health authorities.

Most of the cases detected in the region - around 60%, according to regional figures - is a migrant population which, in a greater proportion than the national one, is affected by phenomena such as substandard housing. In addition, it is also among those who suffer the most from misinformation due to the language barrier that separates the foreign community from the local one.

The Ejido Consistory has launched an information and awareness campaign aimed at the communities of foreign residents with posters and loudspeakers in which both the Local Police and Civil Protection and the different Local Boards of the municipality are collaborating. “We make, as always, a call to comply with sanitary measures. El Ejido is a responsible municipality ”, the ejido mayor, Francisco Góngora, alleged yesterday, in a meeting with journalists after visiting a teaching center in Balerma that today will receive the first students.

The wide spread of the coronavirus in the West of Almeria during the second wave - which began in Almería at the end of July - has posed a challenge for a health area with a clear hospital deficit. The regional hospital, which serves a population of more than 200,000 inhabitants, barely has 285 hospital beds. And the high healthcare pressure caused by the coronavirus has left no room for action: to the point that patients have been referred to Torrecárdenas to lighten the burden on the center.

All the ingredients of the cocktail have led the health authorities - together with the El Ejido City Council - to seek a solution to avoid infections in patients who do not have a sufficiently acute clinical situation to qualify for admission. Those who have an address that allows them adequate isolation, will be able to quarantine there. Those who do not, may choose to isolate themselves in the new facilities.

Without being the same, Salud has opened an old hospital - San Cecilio - in Granada for the elderly who, without having acute symptoms, required health treatment due to their coronavirus infection. In Almería, instead of opting for these clinic centers for 'average' patients, it was decided to medicalize residences and, now, to also do it in a municipal facility. A whole logistical challenge that will be ready, according to municipal sources, in a matter of days.
 
 
 
In the last 14 days more that 100 people with coronavirus in the El Ejido area have not self isolated
 
 
More than a hundred Covid-19 patients fail to comply with isolation

In the last 14 days, the El Ejido City Council carried out 537 follow-up calls for positive cases of coronavirus in the municipality

In the last 14 days, the El Ejido City Council carried out a total of 537 follow-up calls of positive cases for Covid-19 and 120 incidents were opened for breach of the obligation of home isolation or for not having been able to locate the sick person .

The mayor of El Ejido, Francisco Góngora, emphasized the high percentage of detected cases in which confinement is not being respected and the need to implement means and personnel for the tracing and personnel of the Security Forces and Bodies, which Together with the Local Police, they carry out follow-up tasks to be more effective, "guarantee isolation, and thus try to stop new infections."

Along these lines, the highest municipal official stressed that "it is necessary to extend the opening hours of the Health Centers and streamline, to the maximum, the disciplinary proceedings."

On the other hand, Góngora expressed his concern about “going back to school since, although the City Council has reinforced the maintenance and adaptation tasks of the exteriors of the schools in the face of Covid-19, it is necessary that there be an agile transfer of data between Health and Education, to prevent positive students or those in contact with positive ones from going to classrooms and shield educational centers against the virus.

All these questions that the mayor raised yesterday during the meeting he held with the Local Police and the areas of Health, Social Services and Legal Services.

The meeting also allowed taking stock of the actions that the Local Police of El Ejido has carried out in these two weeks in the inspection tasks against Covid-19, with the precinct of four hotel establishments, the eviction of five premises and two terraces and the closure of 4 more terraces for breach of the rule.

In this way, since last August 16, the Local Police has sent to the Health delegation a total of 22 records of public establishments for non-compliance with health measures.

The story in the link above states that 135 teachers out of 87,911 in Andalucía have tested positive for coronavirus. This is around 0.1%.

These were serology tests that show whether someone has had the virus. Anyone who got a positive with this test was then given a PCR test. To see whether they have the active virus now.

The Poniente Hospital will receive 5 million to be expanded

A similar amount will be for material to face the coronavirus pandemic

The Governing Council of the Junta de Andalucía approved in its meeting this Tuesday an important economic injection for the Hospital de Poniente, located in the Almeria town of El Ejido.

This is an investment of more than 10 million euros, which will be allocated to two items fundamentally, as transferred from the Executive chaired by Juanma Moreno: works for the expansion of the health center and provision of the necessary material to deal with cases of contagion of coronavirus in full pandemic.

In addition, the investments are part of a global plan for the whole of Andalusia announced last week by the Chairman of the Board and which has been quantified at 117 million euros.

Moreno made the announcement on a visit to the works of the Military Hospital in Seville.

It is expected that in the coming days the Minister of Health and Families, Jesús Aguirre, will travel to Almería to give more details of that plan. Aguirre has already appeared in provinces such as Córdoba.

Until yesterday's Governing Council, in which the Almeria counselor Carmen Crespo was present, a proposal was raised in accordance with the resolution of the managing director of the Public Health Business Agency Hospital de Poniente de Almería by which the hiring is agreed through emergency processing of the acquisition of the supply of drugs and material goods, equipment and provision of services destined for the Agency's health centers, for the care and prevention of the Covid-19 pandemic.

When the Council was held, as reported by the Board in a statement past noon yesterday, the green light was given to "the emergency declaration for the extraordinary expenditure for the acquisition of supplies of drugs and material goods, equipment and provision of services with destination to the health centers of the Public Agency of the Hospital de Poniente, in Almería, for a total amount of 10,365,607 euros ”.

The item is divided into a chapter for drugs, consumables and services, endowed with almost 4.8 million euros, which has allowed the purchase of PCR kits and laboratory consumables and protection materials, and to cover extraordinary expenses in cleaning, ambulances or transport of samples.

The other item, of more than 5.5 million euros, is intended for investment in infrastructure.
