A further 143 people died in Spain from coronavirus in the last 24 hours, the lowest recorded since 18 March, taking the official death toll to 26,621 deaths, although that does not include the total figures for the Community of Madrid and Catalonia. The figure is slightly below that of yesterday (179) although the number of new cases is marginally higher at 621 as opposed to 604 yesterday.
A further 2,214 people preciously suffering from the virus, were discharged from hospital across the country.
Of the deaths reported this Sunday, Madrid recorded 46 and Catalonia 25. The remainder were in Castilla La Mancha (21), País Vasco (15), Castilla y León (12), Comunidad Valenciana (8), Extremadura (3), Andalucía (3), Asturias (2), Baleares (2), La Rioja (2), Navarra (1), Murcia (1), Galicia (1) and Aragón (1). Melilla, Ceuta, Canarias and Cantabria have reported no deaths in the last 24 hours.
The age group where the most deaths have been registered continues to be that of the 70’s with more than 80% of deaths, both in men and women. The number of cured patients is 136,166 and that of infected medical staff since the start of the pandemic, 48,046.
Of the 621 new infections today – 17 more than yesterday – 151 are in Catalonia and 110 in Castilla y León. However, the Ministry of Health said that the Community of Madrid has not yet updated its data and only reports 73.
The rest correspond to Castilla La Mancha (65), Valencian Community (52), Basque Country (45), Galicia (37 ), Aragón (25), Andalucía (17), Navarra (13), Canarias (8), La Rioja (8), Baleares (6), Extremadura (5), Cantabria (3), Murcia (2), Asturias (1).
There have been 465 new hospitalisations, of which 123 are in Madrid and 97 in Catalonia.
However the usual improvement in the data on weekends should be taken into account, due in part to work stoppage by many people who would normally collect the data.
Moving toward Phase 1
51% of the Spanish population will move into phase 1 of the de-escalation plan on Monday. Exceptions will be the Community of Madrid, Albacete, Ciudad Real and Toledo, Malaga and Granada and various sanitary areas of the three provinces of the Valencian Community, including Elche, Santa Pola and Alicante.
However not all conditions to be applied have yet been published with more to be announced during the course of the day.
