After the good data offered this Friday, June 18, by the Andalucian Institute of Statistics and Cartography of Andalucia (IECA), the province registers three more deaths from coronavirus today, June 19.

Specifically, there are 100,152 those recovered from Covid, 232 more in the last 24 hours.

Vaccines continue to advance at a good pace in Andalucia, and all eyes have been on them in recent weeks.
