In Spain, 20,000 people were registered over the weekend, 10,000 fewer than last weekend, the Spanish health ministry said on Monday.
The ministry reports that 1,614 new infections have been diagnosed in the country in the past 24 hours. The number of cases identified since the beginning of the epidemic exceeds 3.1 million, writes MTI.
Today, an average of 252 out of 100,000 people are infected, up from 417 a week ago.
In the past week, 814 people have died from coronavirus infection, with the death toll approaching 68,000.
Fernando Simón, director of the Spanish Center for Health Alert and Emergency Coordination, said at a press conference that data show that the decline in the spread of the infection is expected to continue over the next week.
He reported that 26,000 received a second dose of the coronavirus vaccine over the weekend, bringing the number of those who had completed the vaccine to 1.2 million.
The Province of Madrid has announced that it is retiring but employs doctors and nurses under the age of 70 in order to increase the number of vaccine professionals.
Metropolitan police reported having to deal with 370 illegal gatherings over the weekend, several of which were tourist apartments issued specifically for this purpose. Since the beginning of the year, the Madrid authorities have lifted more than two thousand banned parties because they have violated epidemiological restrictions.
