Despite the increase in the number of deaths that Spain has recorded so far, the Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, assured that the country was in a stabilization phase in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the percentages registered.
The Spanish government intends to maintain the downward trend of the figures, as has been done so far, since the number of new cases does not exceed 10 percent of the previous total, despite the fact that they continue to have first-detection patients.
In a press conference from the Moncloa Illa palace, he clarified that the government measures have begun to give good results, although this week will continue to be complex compared to the rest, as it could be the peak of the disease.
During this day, the restrictions on employees considered “non-essential” have been extended until April 9, so that citizens continue to stay at home while the government requests it, given the crisis that the pandemic represents.
Only in Spain, the second country most affected by this disease in Europe, the epicenter of the disease, 94,417 people have tested positive for COVID-19, 8,269 have died. As new deaths 849 were registered, which are already part of the figure.
