More than 900 deaths from corona virus infection have been recorded in Spain in the past 24 hours, although the number of new infections tends to increase slowly.
Spain has the second highest number of coronary virus deaths in Europe with a total of 10,935 cases as of April 3. In the past day, the country recorded an additional 932 patients who died of Covid-19.
The total number of infections detected in Spain has reached 117,710 cases, according to AFP.
The Spanish Ministry of Health on April 3 said the number of new infections and deaths in the country tended to increase slowly. The increase in new infections in the past day was 6.8%, lower than the rate of 7.9% on April 2 and 20% in the middle of last week.
The number of deaths increased by 9.3% according to statistics published on April 3, lower than the previous day by 10.5%. Meanwhile, the increase in deaths after 24 hours, which was reported on March 25, reached 27%.
The total number of patients who died of Covid-19 in Spain exceeded 10,000 in April 2 with 950 reported cases overnight. This is the highest number of deaths per day since the outbreak in the country.
Spain began a nationwide blockade on March 14. Only workers in essential occupations are allowed to leave the home.
Statistical data shows that nearly 900,000 people lost their jobs, while more than 620,000 people were temporarily laid off. About 80,000 workers contracted Covid-19, leaving 170,000 sick and isolated leave cases after contact with the infected, according to Reuters.
Minister Salvador Illa said Spain saw the “light at the end of the tunnel”. Studies show that the disease development curve has begun to stabilize.
“We have reached the top of the disease curve and have begun to enter a phase of increased infection,” he said.
