COVID INFECTION rate is on the rise in Malaga. The trend of Covid infections in the province of Malaga is once again a cause for concern. After weeks in which the data came to confirm a certain stabilization of the pandemic, for the sixth consecutive day, the cumulative incidence rate is on the rise again, to stand at 147.9 per 100,000 inhabitants this Thursday, June 3, almost 8 points higher than Wednesday, June 2.
As reported by Malaga Hoy, it dangerously approaches the high risk of spreading the pathogen, a range that goes from 150 to 250 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. In the case of the capital, the most populated area, the latest update by the Junta de Andalucía confirms the change in trend. From a rate of 125.9 yesterday, this Thursday, June 3, it has increased to 132.2. In the region as a whole, the rate also rises for the eighth day, to 181.6 points.
A parameter that continues to be below the average province and in the antipodes of other municipalities in which the risk is already extreme, exceeding 250. The most significant case is that of Gaucín, where the accumulated incidence in the last fourteen days is 3,461.3. These are 251.7 points more than the previous day, which gives a good example of how far the situation is out of control.
Other localities that are also in extreme are Montecorto, with 682.6 (170.7 more); Villanueva del Rosario, with 624.6 (-59.5); Alozaina, with 582.2 (194 more points); Salares, with 578; Antequera, with 498.6 (65 more), and Cártama, with 475 points (falls by 11.2 points).
The Junta de Andalucia is worried about the trending rate of Covid infections in Andalucia. The counsellor of the Presidency and spokesman for the Andalucian Government, Elías Bendodo, has considered this Wednesday, June 2, “the rate of growth of infections” by coronavirus in Andalucia worrisome and has called for prudence and consensus among the communities on the use of the mask.
