The premier of Catalonia, Quim Torra, has announced a raft of new restrictions aimed at curbing the spread of coronavirus cases in the region before students return to school on September 14, to reduced class sizes and the mandatory use of face masks, for students over the age of 12.

The toughest restriction announced by Torra is a ban on social gatherings of more than 10 people across the region, with the exception of work meetings and when traveling.

The regional government in Murcia has also that social gatherings are to be limited to six people if they do not live together.

The latest figures released by the Spanish Health Ministry today for the number of people who have tested positive for Covid-19 is now 405,436.

This is an overall increase of 19,382 against the figure released on Friday, with the ministry saying that 2,060 of these infections occurred in the past 24 hours.

1,294 people have required hospital treatment in the past 7 days, with 74 in intensive care.
