  • As of Monday, 448 people are in hospital with Covid-19 in the region, 69 of whom are in ICU

Latest data from the Andalusian Health ministry shows that as of Monday, there are 448 patients admitted to hospital with coronavirus in the region, an increase of 35 on the previous day and 158 more than a week ago.

Of them, 69 are in intensive care, almost double the number from the same time last week (37).

This data, shared on social media by the Junta de Andalucía, shows a continued upward trend in hospital admissions, but still far from the numbers seen on 30 March: 2,708 in hospital (+2,260), of which 438 were in ICU (+369).

In Malaga province, one person died with coronavirus on Sunday, raising the local figure to 297 - the eighth of the summer.
