Madrid (TEH) – In Spain, which is severely affected by the corona pandemic, the number of new infections detected has decreased further. Although it rose by Friday from 7,500 to almost 118,000 within one day, the growth rate was only just under seven percent.

Last week it was 18 percent. Almost 4,000 patients suffering from Covid-19 were also discharged as cured within a day, according to the Ministry of Health in Madrid. Of the more than 56,000 infected so far that had to be treated in clinics, more than 30,000 are already healthy.
The trend is the right one. The goal is being achieved step by step – namely to reach the beginning of next week without the intensive care units being overloaded, »said Fernando Simón, head of the Department of Health Emergencies (CCAES). In Spain, there has been a strict ban on going out for 20 days to get the spread under control.
At the same time, 932 new deaths related to Sars CoV-2 infection were registered within 24 hours. This brought the total number of deaths to 10,935. It was the second day in a row with more than 900 and already the seventh in a row with more than 800 deaths in Spain.
Due to a large number of fatalities, a third public building is now to be converted into a mortuary: after the ice rink in Madrid and the future forensic institute of the capital, the ice rink in the nearby municipality of Majadahonda is also to be converted. The funeral directors are completely overwhelmed.
The government is reportedly considering extending the alarm condition and exit restrictions again until April 26. Actually, the measures should only apply until April 11th. Simon emphasized: “We have checked the contagions, we see a drop in the daily cases, but there is a risk that this progress will be reversed if we do not continue the measures for the necessary time.”
