National data continues at low levels

The daily data covering the coronavirus epidemic in Spain continued in the same direction on Sunday, according to the latest figures supplied by the Health Ministry. Once again, the majority of indicators were at low levels, while there were continuing problems with the notification of the figures from the Catalonia region.

There were 246 new infections reported on Sunday and 70 deaths, hospitalisations were at 86, and new intensive care unit (ICU) admissions were at three – all of which were the lowest seen since March, at the outset of the crisis.

That said, figures reported on Sundays and Mondays should always be regarded with some caution, given that there has tends to be underreporting. Data from Catalonia is yet to be included by the Health Ministry in the figures for hospitalizations and ICU admissions.

Spain has now seen fewer than 100 fatalities related to Covid-19 for the last eight days
