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

Dramatic figures arrive that leave today the worst day of the entire pandemic in the province.

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

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

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

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

These are the 57 municipalities of Almería with perimeter closure

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

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

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

The aforementioned measures come into force at midnight on Saturday, January 23 after their publication in BOJA. Until that moment, the municipalities remain in the situation previously awarded and affected by the measures corresponding to that situation. The minimum period of compliance with the measures has been established in 14 days.

 

Breakdown of recent infections in the province by age

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

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

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

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

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

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

Last week

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Young boys

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

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

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

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

Greater

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A new record

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Two deaths and 27 new hospitalizations in 24 hours

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

On the other hand, in six towns in Almeria, the closure of the hotel industry and non-essential activity will be decreed for exceeding 1,000 infections per 100,000 inhabitants. These are: Urrácal, Santa Cruz de Marchena, Almócita, Olula del Río, Rioja and Garrucha (these last two municipalities will go from the perimeter closure to tougher restrictions).

The closure of the non-essential activity was already taking place since Wednesday in Adra, Benahadux, Cuevas del Almanzora, Fines, Níjar, Pechina, Purchena, Tabernas, Vera and Viator and since last Sunday in Albox, Alhama de Almería, Antas , Arboleas, Carboneras, Cóbdar, Chirivel, Fiñana, Gádor, Los Gallardos, María, Mojácar, Oria, Partaloa, Sorbas, Taberno, Vélez-Rubio and Vélez-Blanco.

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

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

New restrictions: Andalusia will once again tighten the measures this Friday

The Board will change the measures that came into effect this Monday due to the increase in cases

This Monday, the measures approved by the Junta de Andalucía on Friday, January 8, came into force in the Andalusian community. After the celebration of Christmas it was time to review them and, although the increase in infections and the statements made by political representatives presaged a strong hardening of them, this did not happen.

A few days later, the regional administration is already thinking of changing these restrictions and making them tougher given the increase in cases that Andalusia has experienced in recent days. Moreover, the day after Juanma Moreno, president of the Board, announced the measures currently in force, government representatives already warned that restrictions would have to be tightened to combat the third wave of the coronavirus that Andalusia is already going through.

It will be this Friday 15 when the committee of experts that advises the Andalusian Government on the pandemic will meet again to "tighten" the current restrictions in the face of the "worrying" increase in infections and hospital admissions that is taking place in recent days community.

This was announced this Wednesday, in statements to Canal Sur Radio, the Minister of Health and Families, Jesús Aguirre, who has revealed the exponential increase in the accumulated incidence per 100,000 inhabitants, which yesterday stood at 314 cases . The regional representative has also emphasized the significant increase that is taking place in hospital admissions.

Aguirre has affirmed that it will be this Friday when the Advisory Committee of High Impact Public Health Alerts of Andalusia meets to decide "more restrictive measures" than those adopted last week, which will affect, in all probability, "mobility ".

Current measures

From this Monday the 11th, Andalusia is once again closed perimeter and you can only enter and leave the community for justified reasons. Last week it was decided to maintain, "for the moment", mobility between provinces and municipalities, as the president of the Board advised.

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

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

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

Measures that, at first, would be in force until midnight from Sunday 24 to Monday 25 of this month, something that seems not to happen.

As of this Monday, in Andalusia there are eleven health districts at alert level four, in the provinces of Jaén, Granada, Córdoba, Almería and Cádiz, while the rest of Andalusia remains at alert level 3 and 2.

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.

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.

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."
