Covid figures for Andalucia on Friday, April 29, released by the Ministry of Health

An increase in infections has occurred since last Tuesday’s report, but not on the scale that had been expected after the Holy Week holidays and celebrations.

Today’s figures show that a total of  8,705 infections have been registered since last Tuesday 26, when there were around 6,000 cases. Infection rates are increasing but hospitalisations are not being recorded.

There are currently 630 patients hospitalised from coronavirus throughout Andalucia, one less than Tuesday. A total of 43 are in the ICU, the same number as earlier in the week.
