The total number of deaths since the start of the pandemic amounts to 10,043: 1,194 in the province of Castellón, 3,833 in Alicante and 5,016 in Valencia.
When we look at the Alicante province, we can see from the figures and graphs that ICU attendance has dropped slightly, although it has mostly been stable, and both infections and hospitalisations are maintaining similar figures, remembering that the method of recording was changed at the end of August.
