Spain daily virus death toll drops below 300

MADRID (HRNW) – Spain on Thursday counted another 268 people who have died from the coronavirus, the lowest daily number since March 20 as the country prepares to ease its tough lockdown measures.

The figures from the health ministry bring the total number of deaths from the pandemic in Spain to 24,543 — the fourth-highest after the United States, Italy and Britain.

This is the fifth straight day that the number of daily deaths has hovered around 300 and it is the lowest daily figure since March 20 when 235 fatalities were reported.

The number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 stands at 213,435, although the government recently began counting in its total only patients who test positive using a technique known as PCR. Over 112,000 people have been declared cured of the disease.

Health experts believe Europe’s largest outbreak peaked on April 2 when 950 people died over 24 hours. Since then, the toll has been gradually dropping.
