Covid Malaga- Fifth day without dead with Covid in Malaga and the rate stabilized: {Translation, summary} 4Nov21 14:56
-For the fifth consecutive day, the province of Malaga has recorded no deaths. Moreover, the rate has remained stable for the last month. These are two pieces of good news. But there is no longer the downward trend of several weeks ago: since the beginning of October, the incidence has remained between 50 and 40 new cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
-The rate remains at a plateau. Since the end of July it has been falling steadily and slightly every day until the beginning of October. Then it stabilised. Since then, it has fluctuated between 50 and 40 new cases per 100,000 inhabitants. Exactly one month ago it was 50.1. After dropping to 37.0 in the third week of last month, it is now 45.4; two points less than the previous day, but more than last week. In short, it is – albeit at reasonable levels – stagnating.
-Something similar is happening with the number of hospitalised patients, which is around half a hundred. The report from the Consejería de Salud y Familias states that 51 patients are hospitalised, of which 15 are in the ICU. But the figure becomes even more significant when compared with the pressure of care at the beginning of February, when a total of 1,010 patients were in hospital with Covid 19, of whom 114 were in intensive care.
-The number of infections is still under a hundred. This Thursday leaves another 68 infected with the virus.
-With respect to other provinces of the autonomous community, Malaga is above the Andalusian average rate, which is 32.9 positive cases per 100,000 inhabitants. The worst situation is in Huelva, with 60.8. It is followed by Almería with 47.7, Málaga with 45.4, Córdoba with 41.3 and Jaén with 33.9. Below the average rate and with a better epidemiological outlook are Granada with 22.7, Cadiz with 19.3 and Seville with 19.0.

Covid Andalucia- Hospital admissions down by five to 174, ICU patients down: {Translation} 4Nov21 12:43
-On Thursday 4 November, Andalusia recorded a drop of five hospitalised patients for Covid-19 compared to Wednesday to a total of 174, which represents an increase of eight in the inter-weekly comparison, while patients admitted to an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) have fallen by one to 39, also the same as seven days ago.
-The number of hospitalised patients fell by five on Thursday after rising by 12 on Wednesday and 15 on Tuesday, after falling by seven on Monday, three on Saturday, four on Friday and eight last Thursday, when there were 166 hospitalised patients.
-For their part, ICU patients fell by one on Thursday after remaining unchanged on Wednesday, falling by two on Tuesday, rising by two on Monday and one on Saturday and remaining unchanged on Friday and last Thursday, with 39 patients admitted.
-The peaks of hospital admissions recorded in the third wave on 2 February (4,980), in the second on 10 November last year (3,478) and in the first on 30 March of the same year (2,708) are now far behind us. Also the peak of the fourth wave in the spring of this year, which was of lower incidence than the previous ones and was recorded on 20 April (1,593), and of the fifth wave, reported on 10 August (1,486).
-In terms of ICUs, Andalusia is also well below the peak of the third wave on 7 February (735), of the second wave on 18 November last year (528) and of the first wave on 30 March of the same year (439). It was also below the peak of the fourth wave on 29 April (351) and the fifth wave on 10 August (261).

‘Grave concern’ over Covid in Europe as German cases soar:
The World Health Organization expressed “grave concern” Thursday over the rising pace of coronavirus infections in Europe, as Germany registered its biggest daily increase since the start of the pandemic.
“We are, once again, at the epicentre,” WHO Europe director Hans Kluge told a press conference.
He warned that according to “one reliable projection” the current trajectory would mean “another half a million Covid-19 deaths” by February.
Alarm bells were ringing especially in Germany, the European Union’s most populous country, where the number of new cases over the past 24 hours soared to almost 34,000 on Thursday — an all-time high, according to the Robert Koch Institute health agency. German Health Minister Jens Spahn said on Wednesday that the country of 83 million people was facing a “massive” pandemic among the unvaccinated and that intensive care beds were starting to run out in some regions. “Corona is once again raging with full force, the fourth wave is hitting us hard,” the top-selling Bild daily wrote. Despite vaccines being widely available, just 66.9 percent of the German population was fully inoculated as of Thursday, according to official figures.

Brits Told Their NHS Covid Passes Downloaded Before November 1 Are Invalid for Travel to EU: The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) has warned holders of NHS COVID Pass to redownload the document before travelling, as the documents issued before November 1 will not be recognised for travel by the 27-nation-bloc nor 17 non-EU countries that have joined the EU DCC gateway.
In other words, this means that British holidaymakers who have downloaded or printed a PDF version of their COVID passport before Monday might not be able to board flights to the EU. Even if they do so through another proof of vaccination, they won’t be able to enter restaurants, museums and other public spaces while on holiday with their NHS pass downloaded before Monday.

Castleview Primary School in Edinburgh is encouraging boys and girls to wear skirts to school to promote gender equality.
