Coronavirus cases increase again in the Spanish State
The data from the latest Health Ministry report shows a sustained increase this week in cases diagnosed where symptoms began in the last seven days.
The number of new coronavirus cases detected in the Spanish State rose again on Saturday, with 271 reported by the Health Ministry.
This is the highest figure seen since the notification system was changed so that the number of cases diagnosed in the last 24 hours can be communicated on a daily basis. The last two days have seen the same figure come in at below 200.
The two regions that reported the most cases were Madrid, with 95, and Catalonia, with 88. In the latter region, the health authorities have raised the alarm due to a new outbreak that has required dozens of people to isolate, and has even prevented the healthcare zone of Lleida from moving to Phase 2 of the government’s coronavirus deescalation plan.
While it is true that an isolated figure does not constitute a trend, the data from the latest Health Ministry report shows a sustained increase this week in cases diagnosed where symptoms began in the last seven days.
