The 5.721 new cases of Covid in Andalusia confirm that the descent of the fifth wave was a mirage: {Translation} Updated: 23/07/2021, 18:09
-The crest of the fifth wave of the coronavirus has not broken in Andalusia. After a significant drop in the number of cases on Thursday, on Friday there were 5,721 new infections and 7 deaths. If this is not an update of data from previous days, the difference is significant with respect to the same days in recent weeks. The community recorded 3,610 cases on 16 July, and 2,800 on 9 July. Today’s figure is the highest number of new Covid cases since February.
-Thus, the 14-day cumulative incidence rate is up 36 points to 471 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. It is still below the national average – 659 cases yesterday. The 7-day rate has risen in 24 hours from 211 to 232 infections per 100,000 inhabitants.
-The incidence is very high in Malaga, which today has a rate of 787 cases. The situation has changed so much in just one day that Marbella has once again exceeded the rate of 1,000 cases (1,058), one day after the meeting of the alert committees that determines the municipalities that are candidates for the application of the curfew. Estepona is close to that limit, with 991 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
-Two other provinces exceed the 500 barrier: Cádiz (504) and Córdoba (500.5). The province of Seville has the lowest incidence rate with 305 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
-In terms of care pressure, Andalusian hospitals have 944 Covid patients hospitalised today, 33 more than on Thursday, of which 165 are in ICU, 5 more than the previous day. Source, Spanish: https://sevilla.abc.es/andalucia/sevi-5721-nuevos-casos-covid-andalucia-confirman-bajada-quinta-espejismo-202107231222_noticia.html 


Malaga records the highest number of infections in the whole pandemic, with almost 2,000 new positives in one day: {Translation} Updated: 23/07/2021, 13:42
-Malaga recorded 1,980 new cases of Covid-19 on Friday, the highest figure since the pandemic began last year. In addition, there are two new deaths in the province due to the virus, bringing the total number of deaths due to the coronavirus in Malaga to 1,700.
-This drastic rise in the number of infections brings to an end two days in which the number of new cases had fallen below 1,000. And with it the hope that the fifth wave of the coronavirus was fading away. Malaga remains, moreover, the province most affected by the disease in this new wave, and its newly declared positives are more than double the next, which is Seville, with 886 today.
-In Andalusia as a whole, Health has reported 5,721 new cases and seven deaths on Friday.
-As a result of this fifth wave, the pressure on healthcare continues to increase. On Friday, 358 patients were admitted to hospitals in Malaga with coronavirus, 16 more than the previous day. 41 people have required hospitalisation according to the latest report from the Junta. There are 50 patients in the ICU, two more than yesterday.
-As a result of this increase, the incidence rate (IA) has risen again. This is certainly true for the province as a whole, rising from 717.9 infections per 100,000 inhabitants to 787.6. And in the capital, from 804.6 to 889.4. The possibility of a night-time curfew in the main city on the Costa del Sol is now just over a thousand cases.
-More curious is the specific case of Marbella. If yesterday, Thursday, it managed to avoid the territorial committee of high impact having to recommend a night-time curfew, thanks to the fact that for the first time this week it had fallen below the threshold at which this measure is taken (1,000 cases), this Friday it has exceeded it again, with 1,058.7.
Estepona, with a rate of 991.1, Torremolinos, with 808.6 and Benalmádena, with 796.9 are also of concern.
-The total number of deaths due to the pandemic has reached 1,700 today with the notification of two new deaths of people who had the disease caused by Sars-Cov2.

‘Everything pointing to’ need for a third Covid-19 vaccine dose, says Spanish health minister: Speaking during a radio interview, Spanish Health Minister Carolina Darias went further than the official position of regulatory agencies and scientists, also predicting the need for yearly boosters, given the new variants of the coronavirus that could reduce the protection already being offered by the existing medication. Darias went even further when asked whether residents of Spain would have to be vaccinated against Covid-19 every year. “Yes, without a doubt,” she replied.
