Andalusia records 213 municipalities without coronavirus cases
Andalusia has recorded 213 municipalities without coronavirus cases in the last 14 days.
The vaccination program in Spain is progressing well but the number of infections of the potentially fatal coronavirus continues to increase. The number of cases is increasing dramatically among young people right now because summer is definitely here and everyone wants to party.
It has now been nine weeks since Spain ended the state of alarm and Andalusia on Sunday 11 July recorded a grand total of 213 municipalities that had not recorded any confirmed cases of coronavirus in the 14 last days. Unfortunately, that’s 41 municipalities less than just seven days ago.
Data provided by the regional health ministry shows that the incidence rates of the coronavirus in Andalusian municipalities are increasing. According to Europa Press, Granada is the province of Andalusia with the most cities without any confirmed cases of the potentially fatal virus in the past two weeks. Granada has 56 municipalities, followed by Almeria which has 52.
Granada had also led the standings the week before. This week, Huelva has 29 municipalities without confirmed cases and Malaga has 23.
The number of COVID-free municipalities in most of Andalusia’s provinces is down compared to the previous week. As La Noncion reports, “Almeria is nine less; Cordoba, five less; Granada, eight less; Jaén, five less; and Malaga, one less.
Unfortunately, the number of coronavirus cases among young people is increasing rapidly. Almeria has seen a sharp rise in coronavirus infections among people aged 15 to 29 in just 10 days.
The number of confirmed cases in the past two weeks is heading to three times more than what was seen in the previous period.
