Valencian Community – 21 days with lowest COVID-19 caseload in Spain

Bay Radio News | October 8, 2020

The Valencian Community has recorded Spain’s lowest COVID-19 caseload for 21 days.

The Valencian region – comprising Alicante, Valencia and Castellón – has registered the lowest Accumulated Incidence rate over the last 7 days.

Accumulated Incidence (AI) means cases per 100,000 inhabitants over a set time period (usually 7 or 14 days).

In Wednesday’s daily update the Valencian Community showed an AI of 44.47 cases per 100,000 inhabitants over the last 7 days.

The Valencian Community began its 21-day streak on 17th September when registering an AI of 44.11.

In every update since, the Valencian region has maintained the lowest AI over the last 7 days.

Belgium even removed the region, along with the Canary Islands, from its red list of travel restrictions last week.

An AI of 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants is considered an international benchmark for red listing COVID-19 hit regions.

The president of the Valencian Community, Ximo Puig, has been asking the UK re-open a safe travel corridor with the region.
