Spanish Ministry of Health released new figures Sunday that show 410 new coronavirus deaths in the last 24 hours, bringing the total to 20,453.
This figure represents a 2% rise and a slower increase than last week’s average.
The records show a total of 98,134 active cases in Spain, a 1.1% increase since Saturday, which is in line with average increases over the past week.
Fernando Simón, Spain’s director of health emergencies, reported a 1.3% rise in hospital admissions, and a 1.4% rise in intensive care unit, ICU, admissions over the last 24-hour period. Speaking at the government’s daily coronavirus technical group briefing, Simón said the numbers reflected a “substantial reduction of infections.”
