The fourth wave is established in Andalucia for two days in a row with over 2,000 cases of coronavirus: {Translated} Updated:: 09/04/2021, 16:32
-The fourth wave is taking hold in Andalusia. Proof of this is that the community has added, for the second consecutive day, more than 2,000 coronavirus infections. Thus, this Friday the Ministry of Health and Families has reported 2,249 cases. This Thursday there were 2,590, the highest number in months.
-This growth of the fourth wave is even more evident in Andalusian hospitals. The community has already eight days adding admitted by Covid-19, which confirms the theory that the fourth peak of infections has already taken off without doubt. Thus, this Friday there are 32 more hospitalized, bringing the total number in the community to 1,372, a figure not seen for more than a month.
-In the ICU, meanwhile, there are also worse data, although more moderate. Thus, this Friday there are 292 admitted to intensive care, four more than yesterday and 30 more than a week ago. The rate of gain of admitted patients -both on the ward and in the ICU- is more moderate in this wave so far than in the previous one.
-This slower speed of the fourth wave is also observed in the progress of the accumulated incidence. Thus, compared to 180 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants yesterday in Andalusia, this Friday 190 are reported. The advance is only ten points, well below the explosive growth that had the third wave at the beginning.
-Where it still seems that the fourth wave has not yet arrived is in the number of deaths. The changes in the trend can be seen first in the number of infections -something that has already occurred-; then in hospitalized patients -also visible-; later in ICUs -where it is not yet clear but there is an incipient trend-; and, finally, in the number of deaths.
-Thus, the number of fatalities reported this Friday in Andalusia is nine, valley still product of the decline of the third wave. However, if everything happens as it is happening so far, in a couple of weeks it is foreseeable that the number of deaths will increase.

3,000-year-old ‘Lost Golden City’ found under the sands of Egypt: Archeologists in Egypt have found a so-called “lost golden city” under the sand near Luxor, some 3,000 years after it was built for King Tutankhamun‘s grandfather.
The city of Aten, which was built on the western bank of the Nile River, would have been a major industrial and administrative hub during Tut’s rule. It was actually built during the reign of his grandfather, the mighty Amenhotep III. He ruled from 1391-1353 B.C.E. as one of Egypt’s most powerful pharaohs, and later passed control to his son Akhenaton. Tut’s successor, King Ay, is also thought to have used the city.
