She confirmed that in total, four people have died from contracting COVID-19 in the region, the last victim being a 75 year-old woman.
Among the new cases are 104 men and 111 women. By province, Valencia has 104 new cases, Alicante has 94 and Castellón has 18.
Barceló has also explained that the peak of infections in Alicante is partly due to cases imported from other communities, reports Spanish newspaper, Informacion.
