The number of daily coronavirus deaths registered in Spain was 367 on Friday, according to the latest figures supplied by the Health Ministry. This is the lowest number since March 21, when there were 324 fatalities. It is also a slight drop on yesterday’s figure of 440.
Speaking at the government’s daily press conference on Friday, Fernando Simón, the director of the Health Ministry’s Coordination Center for Health Alerts, said the figures were “good news.”
“It is the first day that we can say there were more recoveries than new infections. This is the best figure recorded in weeks,” said Simón.
The health official added that the return of some non-essential workers, in sectors such as construction and industry, two weeks ago had not yet had a “significant impact” on the transmission rate.
