Covid Malaga- Malaga records 125 new infections but no deaths: {Translation, summary} Updated: 24SEP21
-Hospitalizations due to coronavirus continue to fall in Malaga province with 111 patients on the ward, of whom 20 are in the ICU.
– On Thursday there were 121 hospitalized patients, 23 of whom were in ICU. Friday there are 111 and 20, respectively. With one nuance: since there are no deaths, these 11 fewer admissions are all discharges. With these numbers, hospitalizations are the lowest since early July.
-Regarding the rate, which is the one that puts the number of infections in relation to the population, the downward trend has been going on for several weeks. Slowly but steadily downward. On Thursday it was 70.1 positives per 100,000 inhabitants and this Friday it is 69.3. And the same happens with the city of Malaga, which falls from 65.0 to 62.2. The capital of the Costa del Sol – the most populated nucleus of the province – is thus approaching the threshold of low risk level, which is located between 25 and 50 infected per 100,000 inhabitants.

Bad News For Bitcoin- China declares all cryptocurrency transactions illegal: China’s central bank on Friday said all financial transactions involving cryptocurrencies are illegal, sounding the death knell for the digital trade in China after a crackdown on the volatile currencies.
The global values of cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin have massively fluctuated over the past year partly due to Chinese regulations, which have sought to prevent speculation and money laundering.
“Virtual currency-related business activities are illegal financial activities,” the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) said in an online statement Friday, adding that offenders would be “investigated for criminal liability in accordance with the law.”
Bitcoin fell as much as 5.5 percent following the announcement, hitting $42,232 around 1000 GMT before stabilising. Around 1030 GMT it was trading down 5.0 percent at $42,464.
