But it is not the only one that has registered an increase in the rate in the last three days. Elche, the Marina Baixa and Orihuela also increase the incidence rate of infections registered in the last 14 days. From them, La Vila Joiosa Hospital is the one with the highest increase with six points more than three days ago; it has gone from 30.63 to 36.65 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, although it remains at “low risk.” Thus, it currently has 67 positive assets (it had 56 last Tuesday).
On Elche the increase is lighter although it is close to the threshold of the 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants that would make it go to medium risk. Currently the rate is 48.46 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, two points more than three days ago when it was 46.07; 81 positives remain active, 4 more than last Tuesday. As to Orihuela, the department has the second lowest rate in the province but it has registered a slight increase, going from 16.07 cases to 19.64 at the moment. In the region, 33 people are suffering from the disease, 6 more than three days ago.
The rest of the departments, seven in total, lower their cumulative incidence in the last three days. In a “medium risk” situation they remain the General Hospital of Alicante with 33.38 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. Three days ago that rate was 38.41 and it has gone from 106 active infections to 92. The department of Sant Joan has a cumulative incidence in the last 14 days of 38.40 cases, one point less than last Tuesday (39.29); and two less active cases: there are currently 86 people with the active disease.
For its part, the department of Alcoy is still at “medium risk” although it borders on the “new normal” by dropping to 25.60 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. Three days ago it was at a rate of 34.38 and 47 active infections; he currently has 35 people with the disease.
And in a situation of “new normality”, that is, less than 25 cases per 100,000 inhabitants of accumulated incidence, are Elche-Crevillent, Dénia and Elda (together with Orihuela named above). The first of them maintains a rate of 24.81 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. It has dropped from the 39.44 it had a week ago and active cases have gone from 62 to 30 in three days. Dénia currently has 16.41 incidence cases, almost three points lower than three days ago when it was 19.93; thus there are 28 active positives, 6 less than on Tuesday.
