In the last 24 hours, Spain has registered 637 coronavirus deaths – the lowest daily fatality total since March 24.
The death toll figures have been decreasing for the last four consecutive days.
The figure raises the total who have died during the country’s crisis from 12,418 to 13,055. The number of new infections increased by 4,273 from 130,759 to 135,032.
This represents a 3.3 per cent rise in new infections and a 5.1 per cent rise in new fatalities – the lowest since lockdown.
These most recent figures indicate that the tight lockdown measures are having a positive impact on the pandemic.
President Pedro Sanchez extended Spain’s State of Alarm for another 15 days yesterday until April 26, but said the “top of the curve is in sight.”
