The province of Lleida has registered a new coronavirus outbreak, in this case in the Aran Valley, where at least seven people who had participated in a barbecue have tested positive for coronavirus.
The General Council of Arán, the governing body of the area, announced on June 23 that two people had tested positive with the PCR test and were in home isolation.
He also explained that the Val d’Aran hospital health workers were monitoring the contacts of these positives and that new cases were not ruled out.
On June 25, the Council reported five other coronavirus cases, also confirmed by the PCR test, and insisted again that the detection of more positives was not ruled out.
The outbreak in the Arán Valley is in addition to the one detected in the Castrillón de Lleida residence, where in recent days there have been 13 cases of contagion among elderly residents and another five among workers.
Despite the new outbreaks of coronavirus that have been registered in Catalonia in recent weeks, the Generalitat is not considering “returning to a stage of phases”.
The Minister of Health, Alba Vergés, visited Lleida yesterday, where she wanted to make it clear that the situation in the province “is under control”, but that society must follow all the recommendations to avoid new infections.
