The Mayor began her speech by recalling that "the elderly population and people with certain pathologies are the most vulnerable and, therefore, those who most frequently present the most serious forms of the disease.
For this reason, I want to record my concern as Mayor of Molina de Segura about the outbreak that we knew last Sunday at the Ballesol residence in Altorreal.
That same day I contacted the management of the center to inquire about the situation of residents and workers, at the same time that I put their We have all the municipal means at our disposal to minimize the situation and contribute, to the extent of our possibilities, to the cleaning and disinfection of the facilities.I am very aware of the situation and I wish a speedy recovery for all those affected.
" As of yesterday, Wednesday October 14, Molina de Segura has a total of 252 active cases, 28 more than a week ago, with a cumulative incidence in the last 7 days of 268.5 cases, 72.4 more than last Wednesday .
These indices place the municipality in the 9th place of incidence among the 45 municipalities of the Region.
"A week ago we were in 14th place, that is, five positions below.
This is an important promotion that forces us to redouble all efforts and insist on the need to avoid social relations and unnecessary travel as much as possible", warns the Mayor. "We cannot escape reality.
The evolution of the pandemic in Molina de Segura continues to be very worrying, and the data with which we work demonstrates this.
The Accumulated Incidence per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days in Molina de Segura was 32 cases at the beginning of August.
A little more than two months later, we have reached 470.2 cases, which means that we have multiplied this incidence almost 15 times.
This increase is explained by the increase in mobility and social relations; it is absolutely necessary to exercise extreme caution and not relax in protective measures ". The Accumulated Incidence in the last two weeks stands at 470.2 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, almost 14 cases less than 7 days ago, which means that the municipality is still very close to 500 cases. So far in this second wave of the pandemic, Molina de Segura accumulates a total of 1,253 positive PCRs.
The increase in just one week has been 192 PCR positive.
The number of residents of the municipality discharged from Wednesday to Wednesday has been 196 and the deaths in this second wave of the pandemic are still 7. The BORM published last Saturday a new order of the Ministry of Health by which the hygiene and prevention measures are extended for one month, until November 8, as well as those related to the capacity and the maximum number of people allowed in establishment, facilities or activities. "A large part of these measures, we are all aware of it, imply restrictions and limitations in activities, where the interaction between people gives rise to a greater risk, since the social and family environments are in which the disease is having a greater The objective continues to be to fight against the transmission of the virus and to minimize the effects on people as much as possible, protecting public health at all times, "says Clavero. Finally, the Mayor has made "a call for citizen responsibility.
This virus has not yet been controlled, we still do not have a vaccine, nor a one hundred percent effective treatment to combat it.
Therefore, it is necessary that all citizens are aware of the importance of complying with the protection measures so that Molina is Safe, that Safe that goes in the name of our city and that we need so much now.
We do not want stories with a COVID ending, we do not want the disease to continue to spread with our behavior and hurting ourselves personally and financially, but we want stories full of exciting projects, happy realities and life, above all we want stories full of life ".
