Finally, some good news to start the week!
The accumulated incidence of the coronavirus in Marbella has dropped beneath 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, for the first time since January 15. These figures mean Marbella is on course to end the perimetre closure and relaxing the restrictions a little more, a decision that will be made on Thursday.
The cumulative incidence on Monday stands at 498.5 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the past 14 days.
It is the lowest figure since January 15 (484.7) and marks a constant rate of decline for almost three weeks.
If this trend continues, when the Junta reviews the data next Thursday, Marbella will be able to put an end to the perimetre restrictions that currently prevents entering or leaving the municipality without just cause.
It will also mean a relaxation in restrictions, including, for example, extending the opening hours of some establishments.
Even so, the rate in Marbella is still much higher than in the province of Malaga (288.9), Andalusia (279.4) and Spain (294.72).
This Monday, 120 new positives for Covid-19 were recorded in Marbella, a figure after the weekend that is the lowest since Monday, January 4 (79). The only negative, however, was the recording of two deaths.
