    Corona situation in Andalusia stable – Mask obligation under review

    In Andalusia, 938 positive tests were reported yesterday. The 14-day incidence has dropped from 179 to 169 positives per 100,000 population since 11 May. The 7-day incidence has dropped from 78 to 75 positives per 100,000 population in the past seven days.

    In terms of hospital occupancy by patients affected by Covid-19 in Andalusia, this has decreased week-on-week from 1,231 to 1,053 patients. In the same period, the number of Corona patients receiving intensive care has also decreased from 322 to 276. Since the beginning of the pandemic, 9,949 people have died from or with the Corona virus in the region.

    Meanwhile, a good 15 percent of citizens in Andalusia have been immunised by double dose so far. In the previous week, this figure was still at 13 per cent. Meanwhile, 31 percent of citizens have received a first dose. Seven days ago, this figure was 27.5 percent. In the province of Málaga, 13.7 percent of the population are now immunised (previous week: 11.6 percent) while almost 29 percent have received at least one dose (previous week: 25 percent).

    In Andalusia, those born up to 1965 are currently being notified. The Andalusian Health Service (SAS) reminds us that those born between 1962 and 1965 and those over 68 can make an appointment via the internet, provided they have a digital signature.

    Finally, Spain’s chief virologist Fernando Simón is raising hopes that the outdoor mask requirement will soon come to an end: “In not a few days, the mask requirement in outdoor areas could fall under certain circumstances,” Simón told members of the press on Monday. However, the virologist did not (yet) want to specify this statement further.

    In Spain, the 14-day incidence is now 147.5 positives per 100,000 inhabitants (previous week: 189). The value for the 7-day incidence is 71 (previous week: 90). For comparison: in the Federal Republic of Germany, the 7-day incidence is 79 infected persons per 100,000 inhabitants (previous week: 115), according to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI). In Austria, the 7-day incidence is 62 (previous week: 95). In Switzerland, this value has decreased from 120 to 91 in a weekly comparison.
