Andalusia adds 20 more deaths to the Covid list: {Translation} Updated:04/21/2021 18:08
-To the long list of deaths caused by Covid in Andalusia – a total of 9,575 – must be added the twenty reported to the Ministry of Health by the Regional Ministry of Health on Wednesday 21 April. Most of these deaths occurred in Seville (six), Malaga (four) and the same number in Granada. Cordoba and Almeria accounted for two, Huelva and Cadiz one and Jaen none.
-On the positive side of this long pandemic, a total of 641,811 full doses of anti-Covid vaccine had been administered yesterday, which represents 7.56% of the total population of Andalusia. Also, in addition to the 451,572 recovered, 3,007 more doses have been administered today.
-Andalusia has seen a drop in the number of people hospitalised with coronavirus on Wednesday 21 April to 1,588, five fewer than the day before but 102 more than last Wednesday, while those admitted to an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) have risen to 314, one more in one day and 24 more than a week ago.
-This has been announced by the Junta de Andalucía. The number of hospitalised patients fell after rising by 61 on Tuesday and 75 on Monday, falling by 41 on Sunday, increasing by 12 on Saturday, remaining stable at 1,486 patients for three consecutive days and rising by 13 on Wednesday.
-For their part, ICU patients rose again after increasing by five on Tuesday, six on Monday and eleven on Sunday, falling by four on Saturday, increasing by two on Friday and three on Thursday, and falling by seven on the previous Wednesday.
-The region is still far from the peaks of hospitalisations recorded in the third wave on 2 February (4,980), in the second on 10 November (3,478) and in the first on 30 March 2020 (2,708).
-With regard to ICUs, Andalusia also remains below the peak of the third wave reached on 7 February (735), of the second on 18 November (528) and of the first on 30 March 2020 (439).

Nearly half of 70-79 age group in Spain have received first dose of Covid-19 vaccine: The pace of the vaccination drive is expected to accelerate after the EMA ruled the benefits of the Janssen medication outweigh the risks.
According to the latest report by the Spanish Health Ministry, released Tuesday, 45.4% of people in the 70-79 age group have received at least one dose of the vaccine. This is more than double the figure reported last week, when it stood at 21.4%. Up until recently, vaccination of this demographic had been sidelined: the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccine was prioritized for the 80-and-over age group and the use of the Oxford-AstraZeneca shots was restricted to people aged between 60 and 69 due to concerns over very rare blood clot cases in younger patients.

Veterinarians recommend mass vaccination of cats against covid-19: {Translation} Dogs and ferrets should also be immunized against the coronavirus as soon as anticovid drugs are authorized. Studies show “severe lung damage” in infected animals.
-The covid-19 monitoring group of the Veterinary College Organisation (OCV) has recommended this Monday the mass vaccination of cats against the coronavirus, in the first instance, and then of dogs and ferrets, when vaccines for animals are authorised.
-The CPVO has advanced that research is underway in several centres linked to the Complutense University of Madrid aimed at obtaining a vaccine for animals, especially cats, since, “despite the scarcity of symptoms manifested, in some cases detected necropsies reflect severe lung damage”.
-“The work allows a certain margin of optimism regarding the arrival of the vaccine, because in carnivores, as it is a very immunogenic virus, the process does not involve major complications,” they said.

Tennis News- Barcelona Open: Top seed Rafael Nadal was pushed to the brink by qualifier Ilya Ivashka on Wednesday, but the 11-time champion rallied from a set down to kick off his Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell campaign with a victory on his namesake Centre Court. The 34-year-old Spaniard raised his level after dropping a tight opening set, roaring back to a 3-6, 6-2, 6-4 victory after two hours and 20 minutes on Pista Rafa Nadal.
