With three in every 10 of the new coronavirus infections diagnosed in Spain in the last 24 hours, Madrid is the region that most accounted for the significant rise in cases reported last night by the Health Ministry. In total, the country’s regional governments informed the central administration of 2,935 positives detected the day before, which is 1,000 more than the record figure seen since the deescalation of confinement measures.
Despite this, Fernando Simón, the director of the Health Ministry’s Coordination Center for Health Alerts, played down the high figures during his twice-weekly press conference saying it’s a gentle rise that allows for the implementation of control measures, and that they are now detecting a lot of cases very early.
