Andalucía Covid Cases have risen higher over the last 14 days, the region has entered Holy Week with the incidence rate crossing the 150 per 100,000 barrier, putting it at high risk once again.
The region has accumulated 3,864 new infections and 20 deaths in three days, no data had been published since Wednesday, March 31.
The number of hospitalised on Friday increased by 58 people, reaching 1,090, while in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) there are eight more people, making a total of 275, according to the data provided by the Ministry of Health for Andalucía.
