COVID-19

Covid Andalucia- Andalusia adds 3,848 Covid positives and registers seven deaths: {Translation} Updated: 28/07/2021, 11:31
-On Wednesday 28 July, Andalusia reduced the rate of contagions to a total of 3,848 cases of coronavirus, 906 fewer than the previous day, according to data consulted by Europa Press at the Institute of Statistics and Cartography of Andalusia (IECA), which has recorded seven deaths, nine fewer than on Tuesday and one less than a week ago.
-On the other hand, the cumulative incidence rate of the community recorded 27 days of consecutive increases and stands at 540.4 per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days, 4.3 points more in 24 hours – compared to 23.3 on Tuesday compared to Monday – and 107.5 points more in a week. The region has not had such a high rate since 12 February (583.7).
-The 3,848 of this Wednesday are registered after the 4,754 cases of this Tuesday, the 4,673 of this Monday and Sunday, the 5,318 of Saturday, the 5,721 of Friday, the 2,949 of Thursday and the 3,560 of last Wednesday.
-By provinces, Malaga is again the one with the most cases with 860, followed by Seville with 854, Cadiz with 524, Granada with 426, Cordoba with 389, Almeria with 299, Jaen with 263 and Huelva with 233.
-The seven deaths were recorded in Malaga (four), Almeria (two) and Jaen (one). Source, Spanish: https://andaluciainformacion.es/andalucia/988272/andalucia-suma-3848-positivos-covid-y-registra-siete-muertes/

 

Covid Malaga- Malaga registers a notable drop in Covid cases, but there are four more fatalities: {Translation, summary} Updated: 28 Julio, 2021, 13:43.
-The province of Malaga recorded Wednesday a notable drop in the number of Covid cases and the rate fell slightly, but there were another four deaths with the virus and 53 hospitalisations in just one day. Furthermore, although the incidence rate has fallen, it continues to be the highest in the autonomous community.
-At the provincial level, the incidence is 840.1 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. The previous day it was 855.2. But although it is decreasing, it is the province with the highest number in the autonomous community. At regional level, the average rate is 540.4. This is an increase compared to the previous day, when it was 536.1. Where it also falls is in the capital. The city of Malaga had an incidence of 1006.1 positives per 100,000 inhabitants on Tuesday -which would have led to a curfew- and this Wednesday it is 977.9 which frees it from that measure.
-The most negative part of the daily report from the Department of Health and Families is that four more deaths are reported with the virus.
-The pressure of care continues to rise. There are currently 467 patients in hospital, 74 of them in the ICU. This number means that – excluding discharges – there are 14 more than the previous day when the number of hospitalised patients was 453.

OTHER NEWS

Dusty Hill, bassist for legendary Texas band ZZ Top, dies in his sleep at age 72: Dusty Hill, who played bass with ZZ Top for more than 50 years and helped make the Texas trio one of the world’s most famous rock acts, has died in his sleep. The band announced the news via social media on Wednesday. Hill was 72. (The cause was reported to be related to a “hip injury”. “Hipsters” will understand that as slang for another common health problem among musicians that “die in their sleep”, like Tom Petty and his “hip injury”, who died in his sleep… from an OD of the opioid painkiller Fentanyl mixed with an anti-anxiety drug in the benzodiazepine class. Or Prince and his “hip injury”, but he didn’t make it to his bed, he OD’d waiting for an elevator.  -Ed.) I have included a full concert video from one of ZZ Top’s last concerts, in 2021.  Video Link.

Perseid meteor shower 2021- All you need to know: 2021 is an excellent year for this shower! No matter where you live worldwide, the 2021 Perseid meteor shower will probably produce the greatest number of meteors on the mornings of August 11, 12 and 13. On the peak mornings in 2021, in the early morning hours, when the most meteors will be flying, there’ll be no moon to ruin on the show.
These meteors burn up about 60 miles (100 km) above the Earth’s surface. If any meteor survives its fiery plunge to hit the ground intact, the remaining portion is called a meteorite. Few, if any, meteors in meteor showers become meteorites, however, because of the flimsy nature of comet debris. Most meteorites are the remains of asteroids. Photo:James Younger.

Slipknot founding drummer Joey Jordison has died, Monday July 26th, aged 46: Jordison was Slipknot’s drummer in their original formation, when they were called The Pale Ones and later Meld. He came up with the name Slipknot in 1995. The drummer departed the band in 2013, after making four albums with them.
The Iowa native revealed in 2016 that he departed Slipknot due to an inability to play as a result of a neurological disease called transverse myelitis, a type of multiple sclerosis, that left his legs paralysed. He recovered from his illness and began playing again in a number of bands.

Halting Erosion using Vetiver:
From Vetiver Spain in Sayalonga
Our Nursery is open by appointment depending on the current travel restrictions. Please email or call first. We have Moringa seedlings, Organic Moringa powder and Comfrey plants. We also have some local trees and some exotic trees from Africa.
Vetiver is a rapid growing and non-invasive sterile clump grass with a height of 1-2 metres and a root system of 3-4 metres in depth. We have been providing Vetiver throughout the EU for almost 10 years now. We are located in Sayalonga where we can plant year round but our best results by far start in February. The reason is that Vetiver is indigenous to India and Vetiver loves the heat of the summer. Use Vetiver cuttings as mulch around all of your fruit trees. Decomposing Vetiver improves soil quality, keeps the weeds down and the insects away all while helping to maintain soil moisture.
Vetiver is a nutritious and replenishable animal fodder. Horses and pigs love it. We use it in our chicken pens replacing hay because it stops mites.
In the 2 photos below you will see land prepared for Vetiver and the results 2 years later.
We also use Vetiver along driveways and sidewalks. It also makes a great and inexpensive ornamental hedge.
Here is a link to a short video showing the results.
https://youtu.be/rjTmb_LL2uo
We suggest planting now, as this is the BEST time of the year to plant.
To see more images of Vetiver go to this link.

COVID-19

Covid deaths in Spain triple in two weeks due to fifth wave:
-In the past 14 days, the number of weekly fatalities has grown from 32 to 98, while the incidence rate continues to rise.
-According to the latest figures from the Spanish Health Ministry, released Monday evening, 98 people in Spain have died after testing positive for the virus in the last seven days. That is nearly double the 50 weekly fatalities reported last Monday and triple the 32 recorded two weeks ago.
-According to Monday’s figures, 61,625 new coronavirus cases have been detected since Friday (no data is released on Saturdays and Sundays). This is nearly the same number reported last Monday, when 61,628 infections were detected over the weekend, indicating that the incidence rate is stabilizing.

Andalusia has 16 Covid deaths in one day, the worst in over a month: {Translation} Updated: 27/07/2021, 17:54
-The fifth wave of the pandemic is already noticeable in the number of deaths from Covid-19 reported in Andalusia. On Tuesday, the region recorded 16 deaths from the coronavirus, the highest figure since 30 June, more than a month ago. However, it should be borne in mind that on Tuesdays the death toll is usually higher because the data from the weekend are counted.
-Even so, the number of deaths from Covid-19 – which since the beginning of the pandemic now stands at 10,323 in Andalusia – has risen in recent weeks as a result of the increase in the number of cases. Deaths have gone from less than five a day to around ten or more. However, thanks to the vaccines, the number of deaths does not correspond to the number of infections. With the same number of cases in the third wave, the number of deaths was close to 100 per day and now it is less than 20 on the worst days.
-While the number of deaths is growing moderately thanks to the immunisation process, the number of infections is still close to 5,000 per day. On Tuesday, the Department of Health and Families reported 4,754 cases, a figure very similar to that of the previous day and 1,000 more than the same day last week.
-As a result of this increase in the number of cases, the incidence this Tuesday stands at 536 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants, 20 points more than yesterday. It is also up one week to 270 points.
-The fifth wave is also noticeable in hospitals, which exceeded 1,000 hospital admissions for the first time in months. There are 1,125 hospitalised by Covid-19 in Andalusia, 191 of them in the ICU.

Malaga, Marbella and Estepona exceed the 1,000 Covid rate, with six deaths reported in the province: The number of new coronavirus infections continues to skyrocket in Malaga province. This Tuesday (27 July) some 1,594 positives have been reported, the highest number in Andalucía by far, and the incidence rate continues to climb.
-Malaga city (1,006.1), Marbella (1,041.8) and Estepona 1,073.6) have already exceeded 1,000 infections per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days. If these figures do not drop, the Junta de Andalucía could request a curfew in the three municipalities between two and seven in the morning. The measure, if requested, must be authorised by Andalucía’s Supreme Court (TSJA). Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/local/202107/27/malaga-marbella-estepona-exceed-20210727135208.html

Britain reports highest deaths from COVID-19 since March as Johnson urges caution: Britain reported its highest number of deaths and people in hospital with coronavirus since March on Tuesday, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson urging caution despite a week of lower reported numbers of infection.
-Britain reported 131 new deaths from COVID-19, the highest daily total since March 17, though it came after just 14 deaths were reported on Monday, suggesting the weekend might have impacted when deaths were reported.
-The number of COVID-19 patients in British hospitals has also steadily risen to 5,918, also the highest since March, following a spike in cases earlier this month. Full article: https://www.reuters.com/world/uk/end-britains-covid-pandemic-might-be-near-epidemiologist-ferguson-says-2021-07-27/

Apple Releases Urgent Security Patch for Mac, iPhone and iPad Devices: Apple on Monday rolled out an urgent security update for iOS, iPadOS, and macOS to address a zero-day flaw that it said may have been actively exploited, making it the thirteenth such vulnerability Apple has patched since the start of this year.
The updates, which arrive less than a week after the company released iOS 14.7, iPadOS 14.7, and macOS Big Sur 11.5 to the public, fixes a memory corruption issue.
Given the public availability of a proof-of-concept (PoC) exploit, it’s highly recommended that users move quickly to update their devices to the latest version to mitigate the risk associated with the flaw.

Microsoft blocks pre 2017 computers from upgrading to Windows 11: Windows 11’s minimum requirements have caused a bit of an uproar ever since they were first announced alongside the OS earlier this June. Key points of concern were the need for TPM 2.0, an up-to-now obscure security feature that’s so niche that most standalone motherboards automatically disable it in their BIOS, as well as a strict CPU compatibility list.
-While Microsoft has since said that it’s testing Intel 7th gen CPUs with Windows 11, the first Windows 11 system requirements list said that you’d need to have at least an 8th gen Intel CPU or 2nd gen Ryzen CPU to upgrade to the new OS. For some context, Intel’s 8th generation launched as recently as 2017. Full article: https://www.tomshardware.com/uk/news/microsoft-says-you-cannot-ignore-windows-11-requirements

COVID-19

Covid inpatients in Malaga triple in only two weeks: {Translation} Updated: Saturday, 24 July, 2021 – 13:50
-The vaccination process is still underway, but the Delta variable, together with the relaxation of measures before the arrival of the summer season, means that the number of cases continues to soar. This is already resulting in a significant increase in hospital pressure in the province. The Department of Health and Families reports 383 hospitalisations, with 57 of them in Intensive Care Units (ICU). This is three times the number reported only a fortnight ago, when on 10 July Malaga recorded 127 hospital admissions, with 20 of them in ICU. The daily number of cases is still close to 1,500 and three new deaths have been reported. This is the epidemiological picture for Saturday 24 July in the province.
-The data provided by the Institute of Statistics and Cartography of Andalusia (IECA) are clear. Malaga has registered 1,484 new infections in the last 24 hours (Friday to Saturday), a very high figure, although the peak reached on Friday of 1,980 infected with the virus is lower. These are very high numbers, although on 24 July the figure is already lower than at the end of January with the peak of the third wave of infections. On 31 January there were 1,787 infections per day, mainly due to family gatherings at Christmas. Now all this upturn is due to very different circumstances.
-The pressure on hospitals continues to increase, as a direct consequence of these high numbers of new infections. In just 24 hours, the Junta warns of 58 new hospitalisations in Malaga and 4 admissions to the ICU. On the previous day there were 41, which slightly increases this worrying figure. This means that Malaga’s hospitals currently have a total of 383 admissions, of which 57 patients are in Intensive Care Units. These are the highest figures in the entire autonomous community.
-The worst news is the notification of three new deaths with Covid-19, bringing to 1,703 the number of deaths of patients with coronavirus since the first one was recorded on 13 March 2020. On this day, the province recorded 50% of the deaths of people infected by the virus in Andalusia, which reported a total of six. However, 612 people have beaten the virus in the last 24 hours, bringing the total number of people who have recovered since the pandemic began in Malaga to 108,037.
-The Cumulative Incidence by the Covid-19 Active Infection Diagnostic Test is increasing at the regional level. If on Friday this figure stood at 470.89, this Saturday it rose to 36.96 points, and the AI in Andalusia currently stands at 497.85.

ANDALUCIA

EUROPE

French lawmakers approve bill to tackle fourth wave of coronavirus: The French parliament on Monday approved a bill which will make COVID-19 vaccinations mandatory for health workers as well as require a bolstered health pass in a wide array of social venues as France battles with a fourth wave of coronavirus infections.
-Visitors heading to museums, cinemas or swimming pools in France are already denied entry if they cannot produce a pass showing that they have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or have had a recent negative test. The pass has been required for large-scale festivals or to go clubbing.
-From the start of August, the pass will further be needed to enter restaurants and bars and for long-distance train and plane journeys.
-The measures contained in the bill are due to end on Nov. 15. A final green light from the constitutional court, the nation’s top jurisdiction, will be needed before the law can come into effect.

Jackie Mason, One of the Last Borscht Belt Comedians, Dies at 93: Jackie Mason, the sometimes-controversial standup comedian who unapologetically embraced Jewish themes and political incorrectness died Saturday in Manhattan. He was 93. Jacob Moshe Maza was born in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, but grew up on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. He was ordained as a rabbi — there had been many in his family — but ultimately resigned from his post at a synagogue to become a comedian.

COVID-19

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.

SPAIN

‘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.

El Puente Christian Fellowship – Sunday Service
El Puente Christian Fellowship is a loving, multi-national, Bible believing community of Christ, who meet each Sunday at 11 am to worship The Lord. We enjoy a time of worship with contemporary songs and traditional hymns, and a message brought to us by one of the Elders or a visiting speaker.
The church meeting hall is situated underneath Maroma Inmobiliaria Puente Don Manuel, Cruce de Periana – 29713.
Full directions and further information can be found on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/El-Puente-Christian-Fellowship-105285888299225/or please contact us by email on elpuentechristianfellowship@gmail.com.

St George’s Church Málaga: We are part of the Church of England in Spain covering the area from Torremolinos in the west to the outskirts of Nerja in the east and to the northern edge of Malaga province.

Father Louis, our Chaplain, is available for counsel and support, regardless of anyone’s beliefs or background. We aspire to be a welcoming and inclusive community, open to all people seeking faith and friendship. 
If you can’t get to church, we live-stream our Sunday services on Facebook, and also gather on Zoom for an informal service on Wednesday mornings.

Malaga moves to Level 3

From this midnight the whole province of Malaga moves to Level 3- From Ayuntamiento de Torrox: {Translation}
The province’s incidence rate is at 720 (cases in the last 14 days per 100.000 population).
The Axarquia is in a ratio of 465. Although Torrox is among the lowest rates of the municipalities of the coast of the province (323,2), we cannot let our guard down and must continue to set an example of responsibility.
Nearby municipalities are located in 579,1 in Velez-Malaga; 565,9 in Corner of Victory; 564,4 in Algarrobo and 472,9 in Nerja.
There’s a change in the aforos that for the Hostelery, in addition to the percentages indicated in the table, would be maximum 4 diners indoors and 6 outside. No changes in schedules. FB link

New Covid restrictions in Malaga as the whole of the province moves to health alert level 3:
-The Junta de Andalucía has decided that all six health districts of Malaga province will move to alert level 3, from midnight today (Thursday, 22 July) as a result of the increase in Covid-19 infections.
-From Friday there will a tightening of coronavirus control measures in many areas, including Malaga city – that will affect the hospitality, commerce and culture sectors.
-Level 3 restrictions mean that in bars and restaurants, there will be a maximum capacity limit of 50 per cent imposed indoors, with a limit of four people per table inside and six on the terraces, and social distancing measures must be complied with.
-The allowed capacity in stores and shopping centres will be restricted to 60 per cent, always ensuring a minimum distance of 1.5 metres between people who do not live in the same household.
-The number of people who can attend wakes and funerals (10 indoors and 20 outdoors), ceremonies and religious services (50 per cent capacity) and celebrations is also reduced: indoors, a maximum of 50 per cent of the capacity must be respected at tables or groupings of tables and, with a maximum of 100 people in closed spaces. Tables will have a limit of four people indoors. At outdoor celebrations, the maximum attendance allowed will be 250 with six people per table. Musical performances and dancing will not be allowed.

COVID-19

Covid infections fall for the second consecutive day in Malaga, which has three deaths:
{Translation} Updated: 22 July, 2021 – 13:18
-The number of infections in the province has fallen for the second consecutive day. If on Tuesday there were 1,137 infections and on Wednesday 962, this Thursday there are 880 positives by diagnostic tests of active infection (PDIA) which includes PCR and antigen tests reported by the Institute of Statistics and Cartography of Andalusia (IECA). Despite this, three new deaths with Covid in the province are to be regretted.
-This drop in the rate of infection is not, for the moment, the norm, so we must continue to keep our guard up. The cumulative incidence (AI) is up 0.3 tenths of a point compared to Wednesday’s figure, so we can speak of a certain stability, at least in time, depending on what happens in the coming days. The AI in Malaga on Thursday shows 717.9 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days. At 7 days this rate is 340.6 cases, which may suggest a decrease in the rate if the number of infections continues to fall.
-The capital, on the other hand, continues to show an upward trend, although the rate of increase is slowing down. On Thursday, the AI rose by 14.4 points, compared with 17.1 on Wednesday and 54.1 on Tuesday. This brings the rate in the capital to 804.6 points.
-The other side of the coin is Marbella, the city’s rate has dropped for the second consecutive day and is now below the 1,000 cases that made the possibility of the Territorial Committee requesting a curfew or the perimeter closure of the municipality, which should be endorsed by the TSJA, hover over it. The 42 fewer cases registered in the city leave the rate on Thursday at 986.9 cases in the last 14 days, 404.4 in the last 7.
-Above 1,000 cases of incidence in the province are only the municipalities of Alfarnatejo (1,098.9), Villanueva de la Concepción (1,338.2), Benaoján (2,202.3), Faraján (1,409.4) and Montejaque (1,475.2).
-Forty-two people were admitted to hospitals in Malaga, two of them directly to the Intensive Care Units (ICU) of the health centres. This has meant that 342 patients remain bedridden in Malaga’s hospitals, 18 more than on Wednesday. In the ICUs, the increase is lower, with three more cases of seriously ill patients requiring this care, with 48 patients in these units. However, the number of recovered patients is on the rise, with 489 patients who have successfully overcome their illness. Source, Spanish:

From this midnight the whole province of Malaga moves to Level 3- From Ayuntamiento de Torrox: {Translation}
The province’s incidence rate is at 720 (cases in the last 14 days per 100.000 population).
The Axarquia is in a ratio of 465. Although Torrox is among the lowest rates of the municipalities of the coast of the province (323,2), we cannot let our guard down and must continue to set an example of responsibility.
Nearby municipalities are located in 579,1 in Velez-Malaga; 565,9 in Corner of Victory; 564,4 in Algarrobo and 472,9 in Nerja.
There’s a change in the aforos that for the Hostelery, in addition to the percentages indicated in the table, would be maximum 4 diners indoors and 6 outside. No changes in schedules. FB link

New Covid restrictions in Malaga as the whole of the province moves to health alert level 3:
-The Junta de Andalucía has decided that all six health districts of Malaga province will move to alert level 3, from midnight today (Thursday, 22 July) as a result of the increase in Covid-19 infections.
-From Friday there will a tightening of coronavirus control measures in many areas, including Malaga city – that will affect the hospitality, commerce and culture sectors.
-Level 3 restrictions mean that in bars and restaurants, there will be a maximum capacity limit of 50 per cent imposed indoors, with a limit of four people per table inside and six on the terraces, and social distancing measures must be complied with.
-The allowed capacity in stores and shopping centres will be restricted to 60 per cent, always ensuring a minimum distance of 1.5 metres between people who do not live in the same household.
-The number of people who can attend wakes and funerals (10 indoors and 20 outdoors), ceremonies and religious services (50 per cent capacity) and celebrations is also reduced: indoors, a maximum of 50 per cent of the capacity must be respected at tables or groupings of tables and, with a maximum of 100 people in closed spaces. Tables will have a limit of four people indoors. At outdoor celebrations, the maximum attendance allowed will be 250 with six people per table. Musical performances and dancing will not be allowed.

COVID-19

Covid infections fall for the second consecutive day in Malaga, which has three deaths:
{Translation} Updated: 22 July, 2021 – 13:18
-The number of infections in the province has fallen for the second consecutive day. If on Tuesday there were 1,137 infections and on Wednesday 962, this Thursday there are 880 positives by diagnostic tests of active infection (PDIA) which includes PCR and antigen tests reported by the Institute of Statistics and Cartography of Andalusia (IECA). Despite this, three new deaths with Covid in the province are to be regretted.
-This drop in the rate of infection is not, for the moment, the norm, so we must continue to keep our guard up. The cumulative incidence (AI) is up 0.3 tenths of a point compared to Wednesday’s figure, so we can speak of a certain stability, at least in time, depending on what happens in the coming days. The AI in Malaga on Thursday shows 717.9 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days. At 7 days this rate is 340.6 cases, which may suggest a decrease in the rate if the number of infections continues to fall.
-The capital, on the other hand, continues to show an upward trend, although the rate of increase is slowing down. On Thursday, the AI rose by 14.4 points, compared with 17.1 on Wednesday and 54.1 on Tuesday. This brings the rate in the capital to 804.6 points.
-The other side of the coin is Marbella, the city’s rate has dropped for the second consecutive day and is now below the 1,000 cases that made the possibility of the Territorial Committee requesting a curfew or the perimeter closure of the municipality, which should be endorsed by the TSJA, hover over it. The 42 fewer cases registered in the city leave the rate on Thursday at 986.9 cases in the last 14 days, 404.4 in the last 7.
-Above 1,000 cases of incidence in the province are only the municipalities of Alfarnatejo (1,098.9), Villanueva de la Concepción (1,338.2), Benaoján (2,202.3), Faraján (1,409.4) and Montejaque (1,475.2).
-Forty-two people were admitted to hospitals in Malaga, two of them directly to the Intensive Care Units (ICU) of the health centres. This has meant that 342 patients remain bedridden in Malaga’s hospitals, 18 more than on Wednesday. In the ICUs, the increase is lower, with three more cases of seriously ill patients requiring this care, with 48 patients in these units. However, the number of recovered patients is on the rise, with 489 patients who have successfully overcome their illness. Source, Spanish:
