The latest data on Malaga province, including the Costa del Sol, shows that the first wave of Covid-19 infections is increasingly under control.

Figures released on Thursday said that 91.78% of those who have tested positive with a PCR test, seen as the more reliable test available, have now recovered. The total number of people now recovered was 2,537.

There were seven new cases and no new deaths reported locally in Thursday’s figures. No patient had gone into intensive care locally.

In total, 281 people in the province have been recorded as dying from the disease and 1,375 across all of Andalucía. Regionally 92.64% of patients have now made a recovery.

In Malaga province, 56 patients are still in hospital with coronavirus, of whom six are in intensive care.

National trends

The Malaga data was announced by the regional health ministry. National figures on Thursday were as usual in a slightly different format, as well as missing Catalonia because of a delay. Despite this, the picture across Spain was also encouraging.

The number of deaths in Spain in the previous 24 hours was 48, the lowest level since 12 March, two days ahead of the start of lockdown. There were 344 new cases nationally reported on Thursday, excluding Catalonia.
