For the fourth day in a row, the numbers have dropped from the previous day in Spain as global deaths near 70,000.
Spain has reported 4,273 new cases of the coronavirus with 637 new deaths, the fourth day the daily totals have declined from the previous day.
The total deaths in the country from COVID-19 as of Monday stands at 13,055 among 135,032 cases. The new numbers offer another glimmer of hope in Europe, after Italy on Sunday saw its death toll at its lowest in more than two weeks and its infection curve finally on a downward slope.
Spain’s government wants to consolidate the current rate of coronavirus contagion slowdown in Europe’s second-worst hit country, Health Minister Salvador Illa has said, as Spain enters its fourth week of confinement.
Up to 60,000 recently retired medical staff – aged 70 or less – have been rehired to contribute to the outbreak response.
