The death toll due to COVID-19 has dropped below 100 for the first time since March, health ministers have reported. They announced on Sunday that regional authorities had confirmed 87 new deaths, the lowest figure since the 16th of March. At the peak of the outbreak more than 900 people were dying per day.
Spain’s death toll now stands at 27,650 while new cases rose by 652 on Sunday to 231,350. The rate of fatalities and new cases have dropped significantly since the country brought in one of the strictest lockdown procedures in mid March. This is now allowing the government to ease some restrictions.
