New COVID-19 case figures are halved within a day in Spain’s Valencian Community

COVID 19 figures rise above 100 cases per 100,000 mark...

THE latest COVID-19 infection rates announced last night(October 21) for the Valencian Community have seen a big drop after Tuesday’s record daily total.

The regional health ministry said that there were 603 new positives compared to the previous day which recorded 1,318 fresh cases.

That is 58 lower than a week earlier, as the Valencian government ponders whether to introduce a night-time curfew to help cut infection rates.

12 people died in the region across a 24-hour period.

Alicante Province, including the Costa Blanca, had 251 new cases, which is 37 less than the previous Tuesday.

254 people are in Alicante Province hospitals with 52 of them in ICUs.

Elche, which is under special measures, reported another three oubreaks.

Outbreaks, of mainly social origin, were also flagged up in Alcoy, Alfaz del Pi, Benejuzar, Cox, Elda, and Orihuela.
