One person has died in the last 24 hours from coronavirus in the province of Alicante, according to data just released by the Minister of Health, Ana Barceló.
However, in the whole of the Valencian Community, four people have passed away in the last 24 hours, three of them in care home residences. The good news is that those admitted to hospitals and Intensive Care Units continues to drop. In the province there are now just 129 people in hospitals, 35 of them in ICUs.
The number of new cases is 9, a slight increase from yesterday when there were just 3, but well below the figures recorded at the beginning of the week on Sunday and Monday, 80 and 28 respectively.
The number of fatalities is the highest for three weeks, but the number of hospitalised has fallen to 35, of which 12 were admitted to the ICU
The coronavirus epidemic yesterday left a black balance in the Region, with three deaths in a single day, a figure that had not been seen since April 21, according to reports from the Ministry of Health Epidemiology service.
Since the beginning of the epidemic, 142 people have died from Covid-19 in the Region. In addition, there was a slight rebound in cases, with eight new PCR positives, which contrasts with Monday, when none were recorded.
