SOME 12 towns in the province of Malaga have yet to record a single coronavirus case since the start of the pandemic.

According to data from the Andalucia Institute of Statistics and Cartography (IECA), the coronavirus-free towns are Canillas de Albaida, Comares, Salares, Totalan, Macharaviaya, Atajate, Benadalid, Jubrique, Alpandeire, Farajan, Juzcar and Pujerra.


Less than a fortnight ago there were a total of 15 municipalities with no registered cases, which also included Sedella, which now has one confirmed by PCR, Benaojan, which has since counted three and Cartajima which now has just one.

The municipalities which have no confirmed cases of coronavirus belong to the La Axarquia, Malaga and Serrania health districts.

Meanwhile, on the opposite side of the spectrum, the zones in Malaga with the most registered cases are Malaga capital, with 6,234, Marbella with 2,302 and Torremolinos with 677.

However as they have larger populations, it means their incident rate of the virus is still below 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants – a figure which would or should demand the return of lockdown-style measures, according to national health minister Salvador Illa.

This Monday, the province of Malaga recorded a slight decrease in the number of confirmed cases by PCR, with a total of 109 new COVID-19 cases in a 24-hour period.

According to data provided by the Regional Ministry of Health and Families on Monday, since Sunday two people have died from COVID-19 in Malaga province while eight more have been hospitalised.

There are currently 201 hospitalisations in Malaga, of which 30 are in the ICU.

Since the start of the pandemic Malaga has recorded 15,466 PCR positives, 2,270 hospitalisations and 365 deaths. The number of people who have recovered stands at 6,638.
