Spain to extend coronavirus testing to people without symptoms as infection rate slows

Spain will extend coronavirus testing to people showing no symptoms as new infection rates slow in the country, the country’s foreign minister announced. On Sunday, 647 deaths were reported over 24 hours – half the rate recorded during the previous week.

Foreign Minister Arancha Gonzalez told TV station Antena 3:“We are preparing ourselves for de-escalation, for which it is important to know who is contaminated to be able to gradually lift Spanish citizens’ lockdown.”

He added that Spanish companies were manufacturing 240,000 test kits a week and were still ramping up capacity.
