Breaking News —

Health has informed this Saturday that from this weekend there will be no public appearance during Saturdays and Sundays of the director of the Center for Alerts and Health Emergencies, Fernando Simón, who has not stopped a single day of doing so since the outbreak began in the country, including from his home on numerous occasions when it was confirmed as positive.

In this way, the assessment on the data analysis and the evolution of the pandemic will be exposed from Monday to Friday, while the update time of the figures on the website of the Ministry of Health will be maintained every day around 17 hours.

This change takes place just one day after the controversy over the data on the deaths offered by Catalonia, whose “inconsistency” was acknowledged by Simon himself this Friday. Catalonia notified 688 new deaths that correspond to “old” deaths, a fact for which all opposition parties and the Ministry itself have already asked the Government for explanations.
