The sixth wave does not seem to stop. The Marina Alta has accumulated in just three days another 3,076 infections of covid. They are almost twice as high as in Tuesday’s penultimate update, when 1,767 were counted. Fortunately, no deaths have occurred since then, but the accumulated incidence of the virus in the region has hit another astonishing growth spurt: it has grown by more than a thousand points in just 72 hours, reaching 3,597 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. Right now, another dizzying fact, 6,138 people in the territory are active cases, that is, are going through the disease.

On the other hand, Gata accumulates 175 more cases; Verger, 167; Pedreguer, 101; and Orba, 86.
