ANDALUCIA has registered 17 COVID-19 deaths in the past 24 hours.

According to figures from the Junta, it’s 15 more than the two registered on Sunday.

Meanwhile there have been 846 cases confirmed by PCR on Monday, 58 more than the day before.

It is still a big drop from the 1,526 recorded on Saturday, but must be taken with a pinch of salt as weekend statistics can often experience a delay in being reported.

Sevilla reported the most cases in the past 24 hours with 203, followed by Jaen with 146, Granada with 125, Cordoba with 120 and Malaga with 109.

Almeria clocked 75 new cases over the same period, while Cadiz and Huelva registered just 45 and 21 respectively.

Hospitalisations continue to increase in the region with 1,065 coronavirus patients currently in hospital as of Monday.

That figure represents an increase of 42 in the past 24 hours and means there are 77 more hospitalisations than a week ago.

Of these, 153 are in intensive care units, 11 more than yesterday and 17 more than last Monday.

At the height of the pandemic’s first wave on March 30, there were 2,708 people in hospital across Andalucia, 438 of whom were in intensive care.
