The Covid rate in the province of Malaga Spain continues to fall.
Malaga province’s Covid rate is continuing to fall, according to fresh data received from the Ministry of Health and The Junta de Andalucia on Friday, October 8. Pressure on hospitals in the region is also decreasing, with fewer patients in wards and ICU’s than a week ago, although, sadly, five deaths have been recorded today.
Following the recent trend witnessed over the last few weeks, the incidence rate continues to decline slowly and steadily as a consequence of the vaccination campaign in the region- the same trends have been recorded nationally.
On Thursday, the provincial-level rate (Malaga) was 46.0 positives per 100,000 inhabitants. This Friday it stands at 44.4. Something similar has occurred in Andalucia, which has dropped from 36.8 to 35.1 in the last two days. In the capital, the figure has fallen from 43.0 to 41.5. In summary, the vaccination rate, which is around 75% has had its effect and now serves as a protective firewall for the spread of the virus.
Malaga province moved to level 0 at 00:01 today, Friday, October 8, after a decision announced on Wednesday, October 6, by the Public Health Alert Committee. This means that all capacity and schedule restrictions against coronavirus have now been lifted.
Hoteliers welcomed the end of capacity and time restrictions in most of the areas in Malaga after more than a year and a half of limitations have drastically reduced their income.

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.
