Xabia was included in a list of municipalities with COVID-19 outbreaks for the first time since the start of the pandemic.

The Valencian Community’s department of health (Sanitat) included Javea/ Xabia in its list of COVID-19 outbreaks last Saturday.

Sanitat classes an ‘outbreak’ as a cluster of infections with a known source – in Javea’s case, the infections occurred in a workplace within the municipality.

The outbreak in Javea has only seen 3 people infected so far. The workplace in question is not known due to data protection laws.

It is worth remembering an ‘outbreak’ is classed as any cluster of related infections that happens outside of a home.

The minimum number of infections before an ‘outbreak’ is declared is just 3, according to guidelines from the Centro de Coordinación de Alertas y Emergencias Sanitarias (CCAES) headed by Fernando Simón.

At the date of writing (26th October), 80.6% of all outbreaks registered across Spain are clusters of fewer than 10 cases, according to Ministry of Health figures.

Marina Alta

Last Saturday, Sanitat also recorded two other outbreaks in the Marina Alta region, in Calp and Beniarbeig. A total of 13 people were diagnosed COVID-19 positive.

It is the first time Javea has been included on Sanitat’s daily list of regional outbreaks.

As of Saturday, the Marina Alta has recorded 35 outbreaks. According to local newspaper La Marina Plaza, here is a list in chronological order:
