After the review carried out, there is only one municipality in the province, Montejaque, with an incidence of more than 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, so the perimeter closure and the closure of non-essential activity is maintained.

Likewise, Archez and Benaojan have an incidence of more than 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, and must maintain their perimetral closure, meaning no one can enter or exit.

Apart from Malaga, according to Jesus Aguirre, the Andalucian Minister of Health and Families, ‘a high volume of Andalucia has also transitioned to Alert Level 2’.
