ALMOST 300 new infections and one coronavirus related death were registered in Malaga today, June 5. In the province of Malaga, 291 new positives for Covid have been registered in diagnostic tests for active Covid-19 infection. This represents almost thirty more infections than those that occurred the day before. After this Friday, June 4, the incidence rate exceeded 150 points that separate the average risk from Covid from the high risk, this Saturday, June 5, the numbers of infections are not encouraging.
As reported by Malaga Hoy, at present, around 20% of the population of Malaga have received two doses of the Covid vaccine and the use of the mask is still mandatory, but the rate continues to rise and infections are not decreasing. That is why the Ministry of Health insists on the message that you cannot lower your guard when it comes to protection measures. In fact, the Junta de Andalucía decided not to advance in the de-escalation due to the slight but constant increase in the incidence rate in the autonomous community.
According to the Ministry of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucía, the total number of deaths in patients with the virus amounts to 1,652. As has been happening in recent days, the number of new infections exceeds that of those recovered. According to the daily report of the Ministry, there are 157 people who have recovered from the disease, almost half of the new positive cases.
A total of 106 remain bedridden in Malaga hospitals, despite the fact that there have been 13 new admissions. The positive part is that the number of new admissions has dropped notably, 22 new admissions were reported on Friday, June 4, while 7 of these 106 patients remain in intensive care units.
