The mayor of Nerja, Jose Alberto Armijo, has shown his satisfaction with the news, “indicative that the health situation is beginning to be controlled, as reflected in the cumulative incidence rate of infections in the municipality, which has fallen by almost 300 in the last week, standing today below 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days”.

However, he reiterated the need to maintain the prudence and responsibility of neighbours and visitors so that the situation continues to remit, scrupulously complying with the hygienic-sanitary measures and recommendations.
