478 new cases of COVID-19 have been detected in Andalucia on Tuesday, December 15th.
The area’s incidence rate has dropped by five points over the past two weeks. It is now at 139.7 cases per 100,000 people.
Figures in Andalucia are continuing to decline, as it moves away from the 250 ‘red zone’. This would mean it was a very high-risk area in terms of Covid.
The most affected area is Jaen with a rate of 219.1. It is followed by Huelva with 194.8, Cadiz with 184.2, Almeria with 178.7 and Cordoba with 152.2.
Sadly 49 people lost their lives to the virus in the last 24 hours. This is an increase over previous days. There are also 1,363 in hospital with Covid, which is a decrease of 183 from last week.
The next few days will be crucial in determining how the virus will spread. They are crucial in determining what restrictions will be in place over Christmas.
President of the Junta de Andalucia, Juanma Moreno, has expressed concern of the Covid numbers in the region and said that he does not rule out amending the current restrictions if they increase.
