FIGURES show that Spain’s coronavirus rates are climbing at a higher rate than in previous days.
As reported in SUR this Friday, Spain has exceeded 10,000 new daily coronavirus infections with exactly 10,875 new cases in 24 hours.
Spain has not surpassed 10,000 cases since February 19, when there was 11,435.
It is still too early to tell whether cases have risen since the Easter weekend as anticipated, however, this is the fourth consecutive increase in new cases this week.
The cumulative incidence rate, which is closely monitored by experts, has continued to rise at a higher rate than previous days with the incidence rate climbing more than 7.5 points from 174.52 to 182.09 cases per 1000,000 inhabitants over just 24 hours.
All of the 19 territories, excluding Asturias, have seen an increase in incident rates. The highest rates were seen in Aragon (12), Catalonia (15) and Ceuta (32).
Five territories are now, once again, already in an “extreme situation” after exceeding the 250 rate. Basque Country with 295, Madrid with 324, Navarra with 394, Ceuta with 465 and Melilla with 494.
The Ministry of Health has also reported 149 new fatalities, which brings the official death toll to 76,328.
Pressure in hospitals remains steady with 20.48 per cent of ICUbeds occupied by Covid-19 patients.
