Spain's COVID-19 deaths at 27,133; cases at 240,660
As Spain prepares for the state of emergency over COVID-19 to last until June 21, the Health Ministry reported on Thursday that 195 more people were infected with the coronavirus and five more people died. The number of infections diagnosed on Wednesday is down slightly from the 219 people who tested positive on Tuesday, but up from Monday and Sunday.
Spain's total death toll from the coronavirus reached 27,133 on Thursday, health ministry data showed, five more than reported on Wednesday.
The ministry has stopped providing a daily death toll but said 56 people had died from the virus over the last seven days. Confirmed cases climbed by 195 from the previous day to 240,660.
Spain is implementing a new methodology for logging deaths and cases, leading to fluctuations in its statistics and frequent revisions of data which officials warn are likely to continue for some time.
