Malaga Registers The Lowest Number Of Covid Hospitalisations In The Last Nine Months.
MALAGA registers the lowest number of Covid hospitalisations that has been seen in many months.
The vaccination programme in Spain is progressing well, and the number of Malaga citizens that have been fully vaccinated so far comes to nearly 16 per cent. Those who have so far received a single dose of a vaccine in Malaga comes in at just over 31 per cent.
The Sunday figures for coronavirus hospitalisations in Malaga were the lowest that have been seen in the last nine months. Data provided by the Regional Ministry of Health showed that the number of patients currently receiving hospital care in the province was 99. This number is 11 less than the previous day. Of those in hospital on Sunday, 19 people were still in an intensive care unit though.
It was only a few months ago that the authorities of the Junta de Andalucia were feeling immense pressure due to the number of people needing care in hospital. As numbers lower, the pressure on the health system lessens, which is good news for all. Also, it was only in February that the number of people requiring hospitalisation and specifically ICU beds was staggeringly high.
The current situation is improving though, and this is noticeable even in the last week. On Sunday, May 16, the number of hospitalisations was 115, and this number is gradually falling.
