A total of 883 new coronavirus infections in 48 hours have been registered in the Andalusian region this Monday, 29 November, more than the 877 on Saturday and the 782 last Monday. One death has also been reported, the same figure as on Saturday.

The data was revealed by the Junta de Andalucía’s Minister of Health, Jesús Aguirre, who said that the 14-day coronavirus cumulative incidence rate has increased by 4.5 in 48 hours and it is found in 99.5 cases per every 100,000 inhabitants. It is also higher than the 71.1 last Monday and the highest figure since 13 September (102.2).

The 883 cases this Monday and Sunday are reported after 741 on Saturday, 1,045 on Friday, 983 on Thursday, 783 on Wednesday, 425 on Tuesday and 782 last Monday andt Sunday.

Aguirre has pointed out that "there is a disparity" regarding the increase in incidence rate and the pressure on the healthcare system, which is "the important point in order to understand what is happening."

He said that "the incidence has increased especially in vaccinated people, but the clinical course is not as bad as before."
