Andalusia resumes the decline in coronavirus infections and reports only 454 on Monday: {Translated from sevilla.abc.es}
-The community marks the best figure for the start of a week since the beginning of last August, when the curve reached its lowest levels.
-Andalusia has seen 454 coronavirus infections on Monday. This is the best figure for the start of a week since 10 August, when the pandemic was at its lowest point. This data seems to confirm that the bottleneck in the drop in cases throughout last week has to do with the 28 February long weekend, which contaminated the statistical series.
-In any case, it is true that the figures are falling at a slower rate. From a drop of more than a thousand cases a day that was recorded in the community weeks ago, it has gone down to about 200 fewer infections in the weekly comparison. Thus, last Monday there were 610 cases and the previous Monday, 650, only 200 more than today.
-The incidence rate of the pandemic, which last Friday was less than 130 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants, is now at 131. This, an effect of the plateau of data in which the community is installed, may change in the next few days if the drop in infections on Monday is maintained. This variable, which measures the intensity and speed of the spread of the pandemic in Andalusia, could then fall again.
-The death toll, which on Mondays is usually the lowest of the week, is now nine, the lowest number reported by the Regional Ministry of Health in weeks. In total, the community has now recorded 8,691 deaths since the start of the pandemic.
-Meanwhile, in the hospitals the pressure continues to fall timidly. There are 1,315 hospital admissions, five less than yesterday. Mondays usually mean a rise in the number of hospitalised In addition, there is also good news in the ICU. The number of people hospitalised in intensive care has fallen by eight, and now stands at 338, the lowest figure since 16 January.

Vaccine passports will be a feature of our life for foreign travel, says Boris Johnson: “There’s been certificates for things like yellow fever and other diseases in the past, and I’m sure that that will be a feature of our life in the future.” It is understood he is considering the possibility of the NHS coronavirus app featuring a digital health passport, which would carry details of vaccinations and negative test results.
