INCIDENCE rate among young people in Malaga continues to soar. The 14-day cumulative incidence rate among the younger population now exceeds 2,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, after increasing 237.9 points in the last 48 hours. The Ministry of Health has notified 1,272 new positives in the age group that includes people from Malaga between 15 and 29 years old. The total number of infections in this population group is already 29,634 and the incidence rate amounts to 2,018.2 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
As reported by La Opinion de Malaga, the uncontrolled increase in cases among the youngest age cohort is directly related to the accumulated incidence rate of the province, which continues to be at extreme risk of virus transmission.
