THE Junta de Andalucia has classified the COVID-19 outbreaks in Casabermeja and at the Red Cross as ‘controlled’ and ‘stabilised’ respectively.
Despite two more confirmed cases being linked to the Red Cross shelter in Malaga, taking the total number of infections to 105, the Ministry of Health considers the increase in positive cases in recent days to have ‘stabilised.’
Ongoing tests are still being performed on people who have been in contact with those who have tested positive.
The testing is expected to be completed shortly and the outbreak to be classified as ‘controlled.’
The Casabermeja outbreak, which had its origin in a gathering between family members between the provinces of Granada and Malaga, remains stable with seven cases.
