Andalusia exceeds 9,000 killed by coronavirus and comes to the thousand contagions: {Translated from sevilla.abc.es}
Updated: 17/03/2021 14:35
-Andalusia has added 48 deaths from the coronavirus on Wednesday, meaning that the region has now passed the 9,000 deaths mark since the start of the pandemic. The figure, which accelerated with the third wave, marks a milestone in the health crisis.
-In the meantime, the number of infections continues unabated. They have been stagnant for two weeks and each day is an almost exact copy of the same day of the previous week. Thus, this Wednesday there are 955 cases and seven days ago there were 977. Yesterday there were 445 and on Tuesday last week there were 579.
-This is immediately reflected in the cumulative incidence of the pandemic, which has risen on Wednesday. The rise is very slight – around one point – but it means that the evolution of the pandemic is no longer downward but oscillates without deciding whether to go up or down. This is a dangerous moment when, moreover, the British variant accounts for more than 90 percent of cases in provinces such as Almería and Granada, precisely those with the worst accumulated incidence figures.
-Seville is the province with the most cases, with 225, followed by Granada with 173, Almeria with 164 and Malaga with 159. The remaining provinces have recorded fewer than 100 positive cases, with 83 in Cadiz, 60 in Cordoba, 54 in Jaen and 37 in Huelva.
-The hospital pressure, after two days of rising as usual on Monday and Tuesday, fell by 53 people on Wednesday. In Andalusia there are currently 1,125 Andalusians hospitalised for coronavirus, 278 of them in the ICU. In intensive care, where there have also been two days of increases in the number of people admitted, there has been a drop of eleven people this Wednesday.

WHO official calls blood clots ‘very rare’: “I think the reassurance to the public is that regardless of whether or not the committee ultimately assesses that there may be an association between these events and the vaccine, that in any event, these are very rare events,” O’Brien said during a Wednesday news conference.

Marbella teacher’s brain haemorrhage death investigated after AstraZeneca vaccination: A 43-year-old woman died this Tuesday, 16 March. She had the AstraZeneca vaccine on 3 March but hours later began to feel unwell and went to the emergency department at the Quirón hospital with a headache and general malaise symptoms. Days later, on 13 March, she returned to the hospital because she continued to feel ill. Medical staff performed a CT scan where they did not find anything significant, but another was performed the next day.
It was then that they detected a massive haemorrhage that they tried to drain in surgery during which they discovered edema – an accumulation of fluid in the brain.
The woman, a mother of two, worked in a school on the Costa del Sol and, reportedly, had no history of medical problems.
