Over five Andalucian municipalities now have covid incidence rates above 1,000 per 100,000 inhabitants.
Tarifa and Conil de la Frontera (Cádiz), Aguilar and Villanueva de Córdoba, and Peal del Becerro (Jaén) are Andalucian municipalities with more than 5,000 inhabitants that exceed the rate of 1,000 Covid-19 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
The provincial public health alert committees will now meet to review the restrictions in force by all the above municipalities to see if further restrictions need to be put in force.
Last Wednesday, the Junta de Andalucía agreed to request prior ratification from the Superior Court of Justice of Andalucia (TSJA) to restrict freedom of movement and the closure of non-essential activity in the Jaén municipality of Peal de Becerro due to the rate of more than 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days.
The Superior Court of Justice of Andalucia (TSJA), based in Granada, later agreed not to ratify the order of July 7, 2021, of the Ministry of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucía, which requested confinement of the municipality of Peal de Becerro, located in the province of Jaén.
According to the latest data updated by the Ministry of Health, 27 municipalities exceed the rate of 1,000 cases in 14 days (13 more than seven days ago), but only five of them have more than 5,000 inhabitants, Tarifa (rate of 1,050 ), Conil de la Frontera (1,453), Aguilar (1,076), Villanueva de Córdoba (1,095) and Peal de Becerro (1,755).

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
