Spain suffers another record day for Covid-19 deaths as 832 perish

Spanish health officials announced on Saturday morning that 5,690 people have now died from the coronavirus in the Mediterranean country and a total of 72,248 people have contracted the illness. 

The figure represents an increase of 8,189 confirmed cases on Friday’s total.

While the shocking statistics are a further reminder of the threat the virus poses they offer evidence that the rate of infection has slowed in Spain.

The jump in cases is a 12.7 percent increase on the previous day, which compares favorably to a 14 percent increase announced on Friday, Thursday’s 18 percent spike and Wednesday’s 20 percent surge.

Spain has the world’s second-highest death toll after Italy. It implemented a strict nationwide lockdown on 14 March which will remain in place until at least 12 April.
