First COVID-19 death-free day in Spain’s Malaga as hospital admissions drop

New Covid 19 Cases Continue To Rise In Spain S Valencian Community

MALAGA saw its first day without a COVID-19 death in a week on Sunday.

Additionally, the number of patients admitted to hospitals in the province has fallen and those who overcome the virus have exceeded the number of new infections.

The daily report of coronavirus cases published by the Regional Ministry of Health and Family reported 116 new cases yesterday, a significant drop from the 368 recorded on Saturday.


Hospitalisation numbers have also gone down, from from 237 reported on Saturday to 221 yesterday, of which 32 remain in the ICU.

Despite the drop in numbers, Malaga continues to be ahead of the other Andalucian provinces in terms of hospitalisations.

It is followed by Sevilla with 188 and Cadiz with 114. At the opposite end of the scale is Huelva, which only has four hospitalised COVID-19 cases.

The slight drop in numbers comes as the Andalucian Health Service launches this Monday, September 14, two regional call centres for contact tracing and proactive case follow-up to support the districts and Primary Care centres.

The call centres are located in the provinces of Sevilla (Hospital Virgen Macarena) and Granada (Hospital ClInico San Cecilio).

The call centres will operate from 8am to 10pm every day of the week and will be staffed by health professionals.
