ANTEQUERA remains at coronavirus level two alert. The health district of La Vega de Antequera will be at alert level two for at least one more week, as reported this Wednesday, June 9, by the Junta de Andalucia after the meeting of the territorial committee of High Impact Public Health in the province of Malaga, held virtually to analyse the epidemiological data of the pandemic.
Meanwhile, the rest of the province of Malaga continues at level one, a more permissive step in terms of anti-Covid measures. When it comes to conditions of alert level two, the hospitality industry has a capacity of 75 per cent indoors which also applies to commercial establishments.
As reported by Malaga Hoy, the situation in the province is identical to that of a week ago, when the Antequera health district took a step back in the de-escalation and returned to level two when its data worsened. This Wednesday, June 9, this area of the province continues to be the one with the highest cumulative incidence rate, with 302.2 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days – above what it had a week ago when it was 264. This means that it is at extreme risk of spreading the virus within the community.
According to the statement from the Ministry of Health, none of the two Malaga municipalities will be affected by restrictive measures with more than 1,000 cases of incidence: Gaucín (2,139.7), in the district of the Serranía de Round; and Alozaina (1,116), in the Guadalhorce Valley. An exception is applied to both as they are localities with little population, with 1,589 and 2,061 inhabitants respectively. The measures will be reviewed again next Wednesday, June 16.
