  • The daily report issued by the Health ministry showed 71 new cases diagnosed (by PCR testing) in 24 hours, one of them in Malaga province

For the first time in 90 days the Health ministry's daily Covid-19 case report included no new deaths registered in the previous 24 hours on Monday.

The official coronavirus death toll in Spain remains, therefore, at 27,127. Delays in the registration of information at the weekend are usual, however, and the fatality figures are likely to rise over the next few days.

Also on Monday, 71 new cases of Covid-19 were reported in Spain, 25 fewer than in Sunday's figures.

According to the official figures, 239,638 people have tested positive for coronavirus (by PCR testing) in this country.
