Andalusia adds 1,455 coronavirus infections, the lowest figure since the beginning of October: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 23/11/2020 18:18
Andalusia has added 1,455 new infections this Monday coronavirus . It is the lowest figure that has been registered in the community since last October 12, a month and a half ago. Although the data must be taken with caution since the data on Mondays tend to be lower than the rest of the week, this figure, below 1,500 infections , seems to confirm that the measures imposed by the Board are already having an effect.
Thus, according to data from the Ministry of Health, most infections have occurred again in Seville, Granada and Cádiz , but with an important nuance. Neither of the two provinces exceed 500 infections this Monday . Seville has added 416 new cases, Granada and Cádiz, 342 each.
Behind are Malaga, with 106 ; Jaén, with 101; Almería, with 75; Huelva, with 55; and Córdoba, with only 18.
Product of the decrease in infections that Andalusia has registered in recent days is the reduction in hospital pressure in the community. Thus, since yesterday 87 people have needed medical assistance, six of them in the ICU. To put this data into context, until last week that figure used to exceed 300.
In hospitals, meanwhile, Andalusia has added the fifth consecutive day reducing patients in the ICU and the total of those admitted for coronavirus is 2,785, almost 700 less than at the peak of the second wave.
The most negative side is one more day in the deaths from coronavirus. As indicated by the Junta, in Andalusia 37 people have died this Monday. It is logical, since these deaths correspond to the high numbers of infections from weeks ago and would confirm that the community is already in the decline of the second wave of the coronavirus.

Rogue Microsoft Edge Web Browser Extensions Infiltrate The Microsoft Store: Microsoft had to remove malicious extensions from its Edge extensions store in May, and it appears that the company had to remove additional extensions this month.
According to the information, users of Edge complained when they started to notice that searches were redirected when they used the Microsoft Edge browser.
It turned out that rogue extensions were responsible for that. All of these extensions were hosted on the official Microsoft Store; they used names of popular services and programs, e.g. NordVPN, Adguard VPN or The Great Suspender to lure users into installing the extensions.
Microsoft pulled the fake extensions from its web store and users who installed these in Edge will have them disabled on the next start of the browser automatically.
If you use Edge, and have noticed that strange websites appear when you click on links or do searches, you may have one of the rogue extensions. Rather than try to figure out which extension is to blame, just update Edge.

Tennis News- Medvedev triumphs over Thiem at ATP Finals: Daniil Medvedev, who was “destroyed” by Dominic Thiem nine years ago at a junior tennis event in Umag, Croatia, an encounter that over time served to forge his character and for which on Sunday he took revenge on the US Open champion at the ATP Final, downing the Austrian in a 4-6, 7-6(2), 6-4 comeback triumph.
With his unbreakable defense and his orthodox play, albeit implementing a change-up in style in the second set that seemed to throw Thiem off, No. 4 ranked Medvedev won back the title that his Russian compatriot Nikolay Davydenko had won in 2009, notching the most important win of his career and leaving Thiem without the crown for the second year in a row.
