Spain’s Andalucia records 1,695 COVID-19 cases Monday in worst start to week of second wave

Anda Figures Lunes

ANDALUCIA has recorded 1,695 coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours.

According to the Junta, Sevilla continues to lead the pack out of the eight provinces, counting 443 cases on Monday.

It’s followed by Granada counting 377, Jaen 212, Malaga 206, Cordoba 164, Almeria 127, Cadiz 92 and Huelva 74.

Some 101 people overcame the virus in Andalucia between Sunday and Monday.

Meanwhile there were 75 people admitted to the region’s hospitals with the virus over the same period.

Of these, three were sent to intensive care units while a further nine people lost their lives to COVID-19.

The daily caseload count is down from the more than 2,000 seen for several days last week.

However this may be due to the ‘weekend effect’, which sees a delay in reporting figures from Friday to Sunday.

The figures today represent the worst Monday since the end of the first wave of the virus.

It means much bleaker figures could be expected for this week.
