The Ministry of Health has made the new coronavirus data public by health departments and municipalities. These once again reflect the very delicate situation that exists in the Valencian Community and, especially, in the Marina Alta.
The region once again breaks records and suddenly registers 700 new cases of coronavirus, unthinkable figures for a single health department of these characteristics a few weeks ago. The 1.362 cases currently active in the Marina Alta leave it with a soaring incidence of 793'05 infections per 100.000 inhabitants. In total there are already 4.696 positives since March.
Again the worst figure corresponds to deaths, having registered 15 new ones with coronavirus, 2 of them in Dénia, 5 in El Verger, 3 in Calp, one in Ondara, one in Xàbia, one in Teulada, one in Benissa, one in Orba and one to be determined.
The capital of the Marina Alta is once again the municipality that adds the most cases, also beating a historical record of new infections. For the first time, in a single update, it registered more than 200 positives, 238 being the exact figure. Some numbers that show the worrying situation that Dénia faces.
The incidence of the regional capital exceeds 1.000 infections, something unheard of. To be exact, the almost 500 cases still active in the municipality leave it with a cumulative incidence of 1.133'61. Since March, 1.760 residents have tested positive.
In total, 21 of the 33 municipalities of the Marina Alta have added new cases, the majority seeing their incidence grow very alarmingly. Xàbia is the municipality that adds the most infections after Dénia, registering 146 new ones, Pego adds 51 new infections, Calp 44, Ondara 38, Benissa and Orba 37 each, Teulada 30, Pedreguer and El Verger 21, Gata 19, La Vall de Laguar 4, Els Poblets 3, Benidoleg, Parcent and Alcalalí 2, and Beniarbeig, Xaló, Llíber, Sanet and Ràfol one case each.
