Spain has recorded zero deaths from coronavirus in the last 24 hours for the first time since March 3. The country’s health ministry said on Monday, reports Al Jazeera.
Spain reports the first death of coronavirus on March 3. Two days later, they registered the second death. Then the number of infections and deaths continued to increase. A maximum of 950 people died in one day in the country on April 2. The virus has killed a total of 27,127 people in the country while 286,718 people have been infected.
This is very promising news for us. Statistics say we are on the right track. We will be able to overcome the epidemic in a short time, said Fernando Simon, the country’s head of emergency health care.
But Spain’s new method of calculating the death toll has drawn worldwide criticism. The death toll on May 26 came down to 2,000.
