  • For the second consecutive day Malaga province has not registered a single death from Covid, and there have only been 14 deaths so far in May

The fourth wave of the coronavirus pandemic continues without any great variation in Andalucía. This Thursday, 13 May, the regional Ministry of Health and Family notified that there had been 182 new infections, 389 recoveries and no deaths in the previous 24 hours in Malaga province, which has a 14-day cumulative incidence rate (IA) of 127.7 per 100,000 inhabitants, down by 3.2 from yesterday.

Malaga's IA is the third lowest in Andalucía. The two provinces with the best rates are Cadiz (88.9) and Almeria (120.5). Those with the worst are Granada (307.8), Seville (210.4) and Jaén (207.2). The average IA for Andalucía is 171.5 (3.6 points lower than on Wednesday) and the trend over the past two weeks has been a gradual decline in rates in every Andalusian province.

The 182 cases confirmed in Malaga by the Health ministry today are seven less than the 195 of Wednesday.

One characteristic of this fourth wave, which has been a ripple in comparison to the preceding ones, is that the number of deaths has been fewer than in the third wave

For the second consecutive day Malaga province has not registered a single death from Covid, and there have only been 14 deaths so far in May. In total, there have been 1,636 Covid-related deaths in Malaga province and 9,911 in Andalucía.
