This Wednesday all eyes were on the meeting of the Advisory Council for High Impact Public Health Alerts, which advises the regional Administration on the pandemic, waiting to know the decisions taken. The so-called expert committee has decided to shorten the closure period for both mobility and non-essential activity.

A decision taken, as reported by the president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, to be more efficient and adapt the restrictions to the current situation. And it is that infections continue to decline and the curve flattens in the Andalusian community.

Something that is also happening in the Almeria province, in which in the last 24 hours the new infections do not reach 250. A figure far from the more than 1,000 cases (provincial record) reached a few weeks ago. Since that peak, positives have dropped almost day after day.

But the daily data offered by the Junta de Andalucía continues to leave us very worrying data: nine more deaths and 48 hospitalizations, five of them in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), in the last day.

Cases drop

New black day in Almería: 22 deaths in 24 hours

New infections drop to 200 cases and 900 people have to be cured

The curve of this third wave of the coronavirus is flattening, both in Almería and in the rest of the Andalusian community. And it is that the infections have dropped sharply this Tuesday.

On the other side of the balance are the deaths that this fight against Covid is leaving and Almería is experiencing a new black day, which it also shares with the rest of the Andalusian territory.

According to the latest update of the data provided by the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography (IECA), in the last 24 hours the province added a total of 22 new deaths, a figure very close to what, so far, is the record of Almeria. It was on February 2 when the province registered 26 deaths.

Since the start of the pandemic, last March, 529 people with coronavirus have died in Almería.

Almería registers 22 of the 126 deaths in all of Andalusia, a new record for the pandemic. Malaga is the province that adds more deaths this day with 28, Jaén with 19, Seville with 18, Cádiz with 14, Huelva with 11, Granada with eight and Córdoba with six.

Contagion

The new cases detected in the last hours have dropped to 224, according to the IECA on its website. This Monday, February 8, 384 positives detected through PDIA tests (PCR technique or rapid antigen test) were reported.

To this decrease in the number of cases must be added another good news: the number of people recovered. And it is that on this day 891 people have been discharged, with 25,780 people from Almeria who have overcome the disease.

The situation in Almeria hospitals continues to be worrisome, since the decrease in the number of infections has not yet been reflected in the volume of daily admissions. In fact, according to the portal of the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography, in the last 24 hours there have been 57 hospitalizations, four of them in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

 

Cumulative week day stats from the Almería 360 site - El Ejido now has 661.4 cases (approximately 13 fewer than yesterday) per 100,000 inhabitants based on the 14 day average (red for increase; blue for decrease)

Almería already exceeds 500 deaths from covid, but the positives drop to 435

Sunday leaves fewer hospitalized in the ward but one more patient in the ICU

Almería reaches a dramatic figure this Sunday, since more than 500 people from Almería, 503 in particular, have already died from coronavirus in the 11 months of the pandemic after, in the last 24 hours, the Ministry of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucía has notified the death of six other residents of the province affected by the coronavirus.

Half a thousand dead, half a thousand families destroyed that today have been exceeded in the daily report of the health authorities, which is another blow for a month of February that, as the Almeria Health delegate, Juan de la Cruz Belmonte, assured, it is being the worst of the pandemic. And this Sunday he has been in charge of corroborating it once again. Thus, in the last 24 hours, up to 435 people from Almeria, compared to 601 the day before, have tested positive for covid in a PDIA test (antigen test and PCR), which brings the total number of residents of the province to 40,392 that have been infected.

Less hospitalized

The situation in the hospitals, meanwhile, ends the first week better than it started, because today there has been a decrease in the number of admitted to the three hospitals in the province, Torrecárdenas, Poniente and La Inmaculada, where at the moment 414 covid patients are hospitalized, of which 93 are in serious condition in Intensive Care, compared to 432 and 92, respectively, that were this Saturday, which leaves a new step to ICU of a patient whose condition health has worsened due to covid.

Encouraging news also arrives in the number of patients who have received epidemiological discharge, since since 07:00 hours on Saturday there have been 152 patients who have overcome the disease, although they are almost 300 less than the day before, which leaves in 24,615 the total number of recovered.

The covid leaves 7 deaths and 600 new positives, but the hospital burden falls

In the last 24 hours, more than 400 people have recovered

The mortality of the covid in the province does not find relaxation this Saturday and there are seven more patients who have lost their lives in the last 24 hours, when Almería has added 601 new people from Almería who have tested positive for a PDIA test (Test of antigens and PCR) and is close to 40,000 infected with covid since March.

Despite the fact that the epidemiological curve remains at the highest levels of the pandemic, with almost 500 deaths already, and practically replicates the data recorded in the last and dramatic days of January on a daily basis, the province's hospitals have noticed this Saturday a slight relaxation of the load of covid patients that they have to bear, because, although in the last hours there have been 27 new patients who have needed hospitalization, the total number of Almeria with coronavirus who occupy a bed in the hospitals of the province has decreased compared to the day before.

Thus, if yesterday there were 450 residents of the province hospitalized for the virus, today there are 432 who remain in bed, of which 92, one less than the day before, are in serious condition in an Intensive Care Unit . A trend that the Andalusian committee of experts expects to continue, since, as the Andalusian Government advanced yesterday, they are already thinking of lowering the measures if the downward trend of recent days continues.

In Andalucia

Another equally encouraging data is the number of patients recovered in the last 24 hours, which in the entire province rises to 428 which already leaves a total of 24,463 from Almeria who can be happy to have received the epidemiological discharge after having completely surpassed the disease.

Tense calm: Almería remains in the 500 positives but with 7 more deaths

Fernández-Pacheco says that Christmas was safe but that there was a lack of "awareness" in the private

The development of the third wave of the coronavirus pandemic in Almería seems to have entered a phase of stability, at least in terms of daily positives. This Friday, according to the latest update from the Institute of Statistics and Cartography, there are 497 new cases detected through PDIA (PCR technique or rapid antigen test) in the last 24 hours. So far in February, there has only been one day where this figure has been above 600.

Of course, we cannot speak of tranquility if not of tense calm, because deaths and admissions to hospital centers continue to be added: this Friday seven new deaths and 19 hospitalizations have been reported, although none in the ICU.

Again, the number of recovered, as days ago, stands at around 300: on Friday it leaves 359 people who have received the epidemiological discharge, in line with the last few days (323 on Wednesday and 328 on Thursday).

Thus, as of February 5, we have 15,148 active cases of Covid-19 in the province: the difference between the total confirmed cases (39,673) and the difference between the deceased (490) and those recovered (24,035).

"Christmas was safe, another thing is what each one did in his house"

This Friday, Maribel Sánchez, delegate of the Government of the Junta de Andalucía in Almería, Juan de la Cruz Belmonte, delegate of Health, and Ramón Fernández-Pacheco, mayor of Almería, visited the mobile population screening unit that works on this day in the Plaza Cruz de Caravaca.

In responses to journalists, asked about the closure of the hotel industry and non-essential activity in the capital after having reached the rate of 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants two Fridays ago, Fernández-Pacheco wanted to claim that organized activities o authorized by the City Council during Christmas they were "one hundred percent safe" although perhaps it was lacking to "know how to educate" people regarding their private sphere.

"I can say categorically, without fear of being wrong, that all the activities that we organize or authorize at Christmas were one hundred percent safe. No one was infected there, because we also did it from the hand of those who know best, those responsible for public health Let no one be deceived, "said the mayor.

However, Fernández-Pacheco has stated that "perhaps the only aspect" that was not done well was "knowing how to make people aware of how to act in their" private sphere.

"In any case, the figures we have now are no longer due to Christmas, because we are facing mid-February: we are seeing a reality that is due to other factors, such as more contagious strains or that are affecting us more directly here how They do it in other territories ", he assured.

For her part, Maribel Sánchez has pointed out that the data of the last few days, "less scandalous", lead to think that the plateau of this curve is being reached, although she calls for continuing to maintain security measures. "We cannot trust each other," she has said.

She has also referred to the situation in hospitals, in which this Friday there are 450 people hospitalized with coronavirus, 93 of them treated in the Intensive Care Units. "They are 50 more than last week," she recalled.

Almería continues in more than half a thousand daily infections and adds another nine deaths

The Junta de Andalucía has notified 501 new positive cases and 328 cured

There are already 465 Almería admitted to hospitals with COVID-19

The curve of the pandemic in Almería seems to have entered a plateau phase around half a thousand cases a day. A trend that, although it does not show peaks close to 1,000 positives, like those of two weeks ago, does not mean a notable improvement in the situation either.

And is that this Thursday the Ministry of Health and Families has notified 501 new positive cases in the province, that is, 107 less than yesterday but the figure is higher than that of Thursday of last week: then there were 363 cases.

In the last week there have been 14 outbreaks in the province, as reported by the Andalusian Government to the Ministry of Health today. In total there are 121 positive cases. Most have been in the Almería Health District, where nine outbreaks have been found with 4, 4, 5, 6, 10, 8, 4, 7 and 5 cases respectively. In the Poniente there have been five outbreaks of 6, 7, 30, 5 and 10 cases, while in the northern part of the province there have been none this week.

While the expected drop in contagions still does not come - the Junta de Andalucía still predicts two very tough weeks - hospitals continue to receive dozens of patients every day. In the last hours there have been 47 new admissions for COVID-19 in Almería, 5 of them in the Intensive Care Unit.

There are currently 465 patients hospitalized with respiratory infection (it is a new record more), of them 94 are in the ICU (three more than on Wednesday, but below the peak of 98 people in critical condition that was registered on Monday).
Nine more deceased

For the second consecutive day, Almería has added nine deaths with COVID-19. At the moment, the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography has not updated the information by municipalities, so their place of residence is unknown. Only Cádiz (11), Sevilla (11), Granda (14) and Málaga (17) have registered more deaths than Almería in the last day.

Unfortunately, it has now become routine to add nearly dozens of daily deaths - even with a peak of 26 deaths reported Tuesday. In total, 483 Almeria have already died with COVID-19 since the pandemic began almost a year ago.

So far in February, four days, there are already 48 deaths to mourn. Almost as many as in the entire first wave of the pandemic, in which 53 people died from the start of the state of alarm to the new normal at the end of June.
328 more cured

Finally, Health has added 328 more cured people to the list that already accumulates a total of 23,676 people from Almeria who have passed the coronavirus (it should be remembered that the real figure is higher but there is a long delay in the notification of discharges).

 

Cumulative stats from the Almería 360 site - El Ejido now has 696.1 cases (approximately 49 fewer than yesterday) per 100,000 inhabitants based on the 14 day average (red for increase; blue for decrease)

NOTE: Today I corrected a long term error in the 14 day rate for the Poniente region. In addition, I made some small tweaks to the size of population for Almería province and El Ejido. As at some point these values,, as used on Almería 360 changed a little. So the rates match the new table of rates that Almería 360 are publishing on their site every weekday (within rounding error to 1 decimal place).

The value for El Ejido municipality also matches the value in the interactive image in the link in the story below the tables here..

A contributor on a Boro message board published a link to this story that is updated every day (with the Andalucía interactive map updated less frequently than the Málaga one). You can see 14 day rates for every municipality in Andalucía. At the moment the Málaga area map has data from today. While the data for the whole of Andalucía is from 1 February (3 days old).

This is how Belmonte has shown himself in an interview with Javier Romero in Cadena SER, in which he has warned that during these days we are suffering the increase in positives that occurred during the previous weeks. "We are suffering the increase in cases that we had been dragging since the Christmas holidays ended and that after being infected have passed to the hospitals. We are in some very complicated days," said the provincial head of Health.

Faced with this alarming situation, Juan de la Cruz Belmonte has once again demanded that surgical confinement be allowed in the province of Almería to be able to curb the constant increase in positives, which, as he has underlined, translates into hospitalized patients and occupied ICU beds and later in deaths. "We need the necessary mechanisms to try to cut the increase in positives and that we can carry out surgical home confinements and advance the curfew," he claimed.

And, as he has assured, hospitals are receiving a "very large" number of positives right now. "For now we are holding up well and the professionals are working in an impeccable way to avoid the possible collapse that may occur, but the most worrying thing is what is going to come, the next 15 days are going to be very complicated," said Belmonte, who also wanted to highlight: "The curve is stabilizing but a very, very strong wave is going to reach the hospitals, so we are increasing the number of beds and ICUs".

"15 very bad days are coming. This month of February is the hardest we are experiencing and I ask the population for responsibility. Let's not go to our own interests. Raise the pressure on care and that our health workers can rest. We are not going to lower our arms" , it is finished.

 

Stats for the last 24 hours - 609 more cases and 9 more deaths

Infections increase in Almería but the number of admitted to the ICU is reduced

The province adds 609 new positive cases, a hundred more than on Wednesday of last week

There are 460 admitted, 91 of them in the ICU and nine more deaths have been reported

The pandemic does not remit in Almería. Far from decreasing the cases, these remain or even rise with respect to last week. This Wednesday the Junta de Andalucía has notified 609 more positive cases, that is, 40 more than yesterday and 117 more than last Wednesday (to put it more in context).

Almería is today the fourth Andalusian province with the most infections, only surpassed by Cádiz (614), Seville (966) and Malaga (1,156).

In addition, there are 9 other deaths to be regretted. A high figure but far from the record reached this Tuesday with 26 deaths in a single day. In total Andalusia has confirmed 88 deaths in the last hours.

So far this pandemic has already died 474 Almeria with COVID-19. There are already 39 deaths in the province in the first three days of February.
More hospitalized in ward but less in ICU

On the other hand, the care pressure continues to increase, since this Wednesday there are already 460 people admitted with COVID-19 (9 more than yesterday), but nevertheless the number of patients who are in the Intensive Care Unit has been reduced: there are 91 people in critical condition, that is, four less than the day before.

The figures are well above the forecasts that the Junta de Andalucía had before Christmas, when it was expected that in the current scenario in Andalusia (with almost 5,000 hospitalized) Almería would not reach 200 admitted to the plant and would have about 25 only in ICU.
Cure notification continues at a slow pace

The theory says that if the positives increase, it should also do so in the number of cured in more or less the same proportion about two weeks later. And, as is known, asymptomatic cases are discharged after ten days of quarantine. However, the notification of those recovered is very slow.

The tension that the Andalusian Health Service currently suffers causes the system to be notified with droppers. This Wednesday, 323 more cured have been registered. There are a total of 23,348 recovered since the pandemic began (although the real figure should be much higher and will be corrected when there is more notification of discharges).

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.

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.

Deaths

The pandemic hit the province hard again with the number of people killed in the last 24 hours: 12 of the 69 deaths in Andalusia.

Since the start of the pandemic, last March, a total of 431 people with Covid-19 have lost their lives.

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.

The curve begins to fall in Almería with 539 positives but adds 12 deaths

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. If on Saturday the 23rd a whopping 1,023 infections were reached (the provincial record in this health alert), this Wednesday the new cases have dropped to half. 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.
