Contagions and deaths in Spain at their lowest level since the start of confinement by COVID-19

Madrid / Infections and deaths in Spain from the coronavirus pandemic caused by COVID-19 have dropped to officially registered levels two days before the confinement of Spaniards in their homes was decreed.

Spain registered 1,308 new cases confirmed by PCR on Tuesday and 301 more died, bringing the total number of deaths officially registered by the pandemic to 23,822.

In this way, the total number of diagnosed by this test, the most reliable detection, amounts to 210,773 since the start of the pandemic.

In 24 hours, the virus has advanced 0.6%, the lowest rate recorded to date and much lower than that of March 13, when it was estimated at 42.6% with 1,259 new cases.

The Ministry of Health excluded last week from these data those confirmed by rapid tests, because they could refer to old cases of asymptomatic patients whose contact with the virus is very difficult to establish over time.

The deaths associated with COVID-19 thus remain in the lower range of 300 daily, when two weeks ago they exceeded 500.

The best news comes, above all, from those cured: for the fifth consecutive day, they again exceed those diagnosed by PCR with another 1,673 people who have been discharged in the last 24 hours, 102,548 since the start of the pandemic, with the which are already 48%.

“These are very good data that give us hope,” said Fernando Simón, director of the Center for Coordination of Health Alerts and Emergencies.

In fact, six autonomous regions -Asturias, Baleares, Cantabria, Extremadura, Murcia and Navarra-, in addition to Ceuta and Melilla, have stated that they have not had any new admission to their Intensive Care Units, which on Tuesday amount to 75; 29 of them in Madrid and 26 in Catalonia.

In these 24 hours, 716 people have had to be hospitalized, more than half in Catalonia, 431, followed by Madrid, with 162.

And, up to 114,959 patients have had to be admitted to Spain because of COVID-19.

The authorities have recommended that people who go out to do sports from May 2 should extend the established physical distance, which is between 1.5 and 2 meters, since the effort that is made generates more powerful breaths and exhalations, in addition of sweat.
