We may be over the worst of it.


Monday’s Press Briefing in Madrid saw the lowest total of fatalities from coronavirus – 637 – since March 24.


This follows 674 Covid-19-related deaths on Sunday, and 809 on Saturday. The steady decrease suggests that the confinement measures are finally having an effect on the number of victims.

Dr María José Sierra from the Health Ministry’s Coordination Centre for Health Alerts, commented the figures “confirmed a falling trend for another day. We are observing that the growth rate of the pandemic is falling in nearly all regions. More than 40,000 people have been discharged.”

In Marbella the Costa del Sol Hospital also showed a drop in coronavirus patients being treated from a high of 60 on March 30 to 44 on Friday, In addition seven patients were sent home at the weekend having made a full recovery.
