The majority of people hospitalized in Malaga with the coronavirus are not vaccinated, according to the Mayor.

Malaga’s Mayor Francisco de la Torre has warned that “Almost 80% of hospitalised patients in Malaga are not vaccinated”. He called on people in Malaga to get vaccinated and said: “It is essential to be prudent and proactive in vaccination”.

The Mayor took to social media and said that the latest data regarding infections of the coronavirus is “frankly good”. He reminded people though that: “there are still infections and hospitalisations and that, of these people who are hospitalised, 75-80% are people who have not been vaccinated”.


According to the Mayor: “the decrease in hospitalised patients, is linked to the number of infections”. In the province of Malaga in the last week, 24 people have been admitted to hospital. This has fallen significantly and the mayor said that: “a couple of months ago we had figures of more than two or three hundred in a week”.

De la Torre has emphasised that the number of infections is going down “but there is still an incidence of infections, and therefore hospitalisations as a result of some of you not having been vaccinated yet.” He called on people who have not yet been vaccinated to step forward and get their jabs.

The mayor also commented: “It is very important that we all work together to protect ourselves first and foremost, and to protect our families, loved ones and friends.”

He called on everyone in Malaga to be “sensible, prudent, and let’s all work together. Let’s not forget to not relax during these long weekend days, use the mask indoors and keep the right distances.”

The coronavirus vaccination programme in Spain is progressing well but people still need to act sensibly and protect both themselves and others.
