BayRadio | November 24, 2020

COVID-19 cases have fallen in the Marina Alta region of Alicante, which includes capital Denia, Xàbia/ Jávea, Pedreguer, Benissa, Moraira-Teulada and Calp.

COVID-19 cases appear to be on a downward trend in the Marina Alta region, following two 2nd-wave peaks.

The region’s accumulated incidence (AI) fell to 93.1 cases per 100,000 inhabitants – from a high of 235 on 10th September.

This means the Marina Alta has gone down to a ‘medium’ alert, according to Spain’s four-tier coronavirus system.

It will go down to ‘low’ risk if the AI falls below 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants over 14 days.

According to most recent figures (Sunday), the following municipalities in the Marina Alta are ‘low’ risk:

  • Benitachell (23)
  • Moraira-Teulada (27)
  • Calp (35)
  • Pego (19)
  • Jalón (0)
  • Benidoleig (0)
  • Alcalalí (0)

See figures for each municipality in the Valencian Community in BayRadio’s map below (figures to 19th November).

High risk

The Valencian Community’s AI is currently at 300, while Spain has registered 419 cases per 100,000 inhabitants over the last 14 days.

Both these regions are classified as the maximum ‘extreme’ risk, according to the four-tier alert system.

There are now no regions in the Marina Alta on extreme risk.

Pedreguer and Gata de Gorgos, however, are on ‘high’ risk with AIs between 150 – 250 cases per 100,000.

Pedreguer has an AI of 221, while Gata has 182 over the last 14 days. These are due to 17 and 11 new COVID-19 diagnoses, respectively.
