Andalusia decreases in infections, deaths and hospitalized by Covid but the incidence increases: {Translation} Updated: 21/05/2021, 18:15
-Andalusia has reduced almost all the parameters of the Covid pandemic this Friday, according to the latest data provided by the Regional Ministry of Health and Families. Thus, the community has added 1,380 coronavirus infections, half a hundred less than yesterday and, moreover, 300 less than the same day last week.
-With no curfew or limit on mobility, this drop is presumably the result of vaccination, which has been at cruising speed in Andalusia for weeks. The region has already administered more than four million doses and has 3.7 million inhabitants with at least one dose of the vaccine.
-There is also good news in hospitals where, for the third consecutive day, the number of people admitted for Covid has fallen. There are 950 on Friday, 28 fewer than yesterday but, more importantly, 643 fewer than at the peak of the fourth wave, when there were 1,593 people hospitalised with coronavirus infection. This represents a 40 per cent drop.
-In the case of deaths – on the verge of exceeding 10,000 in Andalusia – there has also been a decrease. There are seven this Friday, almost half of yesterday, when there were 13. The community has also spent almost 10 days without exceeding 20 deaths per day, something that has not happened since last summer.
*Incidence rises*
-However, there is a negative note in the data of the day’s pamdenia. Both the two-week and seven-day incidence rates have risen on Friday. It is true that they do so very slightly and that it does not represent a change in trend but, presumably, the effect of a small sawtooth of the past few days.
-Thus, the 14-day incidence rate in Andalusia on Friday was 166 cases per 100,000 inhabitants compared to 164.8 yesterday. In the case of the one-week incidence rate, it is 73.8, compared to 73 yesterday, Thursday.

Americans Welcome- Spain opens up to vaccinated tourists from 7 June – regardless of where they are from: PM Pedro Sánchez made the surprise announcement at the Fitur international tourism fair in Madrid, this Friday.

Travelers from the UK will be able to freely enter Spain from Monday with no restrictions and no coronavirus test: The Spanish government has opted to add the United Kingdom and Japan to the list of countries whose residents will not be subject to coronavirus restrictions when traveling to Spain, including the requirement to present a negative PCR test on arrival. That’s according to an order that was published today in the Official State Gazette (BOE).

Malaga reports the lowest number of Covid-19 intensive care patients so far this year: The coronavirus pandemic in Malaga province continues in a plateau phase.

This Thursday, 20 May, the Junta de Andalucía has registered 200 coronavirus infections, two deaths and 344 people recovered from the disease in Malaga province. The 200 confirmed infections represent 41 more than the 159 on Wednesday. Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/local/202105/20/malaga-reports-lowest-number-20210520175915.html

Patti Smith to Celebrate Bob Dylan’s 80th Birthday at Outdoor Spring Festival: Patti Smith will celebrate Bob Dylan’s 80th birthday in May at Kaatsbaan Cultural Park’s outdoor Spring Festival.
Held at a 153-acre campus in Tivoli, New York, the festival will take place during the last two weekends in May (20th-23rd and 27th-30th). Smith will perform on the 22nd, two days before Dylan turns 80. She and her longtime bandmate Tony Shanahan will perform Dylan songs and recite poetry. The festival will also feature sculpture, culinary arts, and dance — including two premieres from American Ballet Theater and performances by Martha Graham Dance Company.
Pretenders vocalist Chrissie Hynde has also released a new cover album of Dylan covers ‘Standing in the Doorway’ to celebrate his birthday.

New blood group link to COVID risk: An important gene involved in determining a person’s blood group is closely linked to the risk of disease from COVID-19 infection, according to a new analysis.
Variants in the ABO gene seem to “significantly” increase the risk of developing COVID-19, a conference of the American Thoracic Society heard last week (14th May).
Canadian researchers used data from three different sources and 5,000 individuals to search for genes associated with the disease. Full article: https://b-s-h.org.uk/about-us/news/new-blood-group-link-to-covid-risk/


Local Pirate IPTV Box Arrests- Three Arrested In Malaga For Selling Modified Pay Channel Decoder Boxes: National Police in Malaga arrested a 59-year-old man, and his two sons aged 28 and 22, in Malaga on May 6, charged with allegedly hacking television decoders to enable customers to be able to illegally watch subscription channels, including Spanish LaLiga football matches, free of charge.
According to the police report, this illegal business had netted the three criminals a client base of at least 4,800 persons (a list of these we must assume is in the possession of the police now.)
