Cases across Spain
There has been just one death across Spain in the last 24 hours. That brought to an end a symbolic run of two days when the country had not notified a single fatality to the central government.
The total number of official Covid-19-related fatalities in Spain now stands at 27,128.
The number of new infections detected in the last 24 hours rose by 219, almost double Tuesday’s figure of 137, but the cumulative total since the start of the crisis has not risen by the same amount.
On Tuesday, the report from the ministry stated there had been 239,932 total infections, whereas today that number is at 240,326. The difference between those two figures is 394. That means that the difference between the 219 positives in the last 24 hours and the difference in the totals between today and yesterday correspond to previous days and have been reported late by the regions. The day-on-day increase in cases is 0.09%.
