Spain’s Covid-19 death toll surpasses China

With 3,434 Covid-19 fatalities, Spain has now surpassed China. Spain’s death toll jumped by 738 overnight.

According to Health Minister Salvador Illa, the government have ordered €432 million worth of masks, gloves, testing kits and ventilators.

As a result of the increase in Covid-19 infections, Spain’s 15-day lockdown will most likely be extended to 30 days.

The number of infections has risen by a fifth in 24 hours to 47,610.
