The number of infections detected through PCR tests in the province stands at 3,920, while the deceased are 504; throughout the Community, the figures are 11,209 positive cases and 1,432 deaths. At the moment there are 2,522 active cases in the whole of the autonomous territory, 37 fewer than there were yesterday. This means, according to Health sources, 15.6% of all infections confirmed by PCR or by rapid tests.

In the last 24 hours, nine hospital discharges have been registered in the province and 57 in the Community. However, 55 people with covid-19 are currently hospitalised in Alicante hospitals, the same number as yesterday, while there are 13 patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of one of these hospitals.
