Spain continues to cautiously monitor a decline in the curve of coronavirus cases since restrictive measures were again enforced to prevent the spread of the virus. In the past 24 hours, according to the health ministry, the country has recorded 8,745 positives and 214 deaths, confirming this downward trend in the number of people affected.

The daily report presented by Health also points to a further decrease in the cumulative incidence by territories. All Spanish communities currently have fewer than 350 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. We are at 231, although this Friday it increased slightly in the Canary Islands, the Balearic Islands and Madrid.

In this way, only six Autonomous Communities have an incidence of more than 300 cases. In terms of health pressure, there are 511 fewer hospitalized than the day before, leaving a total of 12,552 hospitalized for the coronavirus. The occupancy rate of the factories remains at 10.13% and the revenues of the ICUs finally fall by 25%. It stands at 24.64%, which leads Spain to go from an extreme risk to a high risk in its epidemiological situation.

With these figures in hand, Spain has already reached 1,684,647 people diagnosed with COVID-19 and 46,252 those who have died since the start of the pandemic, according to data exposed by Health.
