Five things to know about the evolution of the coronavirus in Spain
Madrid News Update: - Spain registered a new drop in the daily number of deaths from coronavirus, with 510 deaths reported this Saturday, bringing the total in the country to 16,353.
These are the five main points of the day in the second European country with the most deaths from Covid-19, only behind Italy; Ugobleno News.

New drop in daily number of cases of covid-19

The daily balance of deaths fell for the third consecutive day and fell to 510 this Saturday, almost one hundred less than on Friday.
It is the lowest number of deaths in 24 hours since March 23, in Spain subjected to strict confinement for four weeks, and which could be prolonged beyond April 25, according to the government. "It is not decided, but it is very likely," Health Minister Salvador Illa said on Saturday.
Confirmed cases rise to 161,852, about 4,800 more than on Friday.
According to Illa, Spain is facing an "evident process of slowing down the epidemic."

Long border control

The government of the socialist Pedro Sánchez announced this Saturday the extension of the controls on the land borders with France and Portugal, until April 25 included.
These controls do not affect Spanish citizens or foreigners residing in Spain, nor do they affect the transport of goods and cross-border workers.

10 million masks will be distributed

The government now recommends the use of face masks among people who use public transport to go to work, since the social distance between travelers cannot always be guaranteed on buses and in the subway.
The Interior Minister, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, said that from Monday to Wednesday, the security forces and Civil Protection volunteers will distribute 10 million masks at the subway and suburban train accesses, as well as in the "main public transport nodes".
The mask "is recommended, it is not mandatory," said the minister.
The distribution coincides with the resumption of non-essential activities, such as industry and construction, after two weeks of stoppage.
The authorities also continue to recommend teleworking to those who can, and ask that people forced to go to work to travel on foot or by private vehicle, and avoid public transport.

Mourning for a nurse near Madrid


More than 25,000 health workers have been infected since the start of the pandemic, according to the Health Minister, who did not specify the number of deaths. It is a fact that "worries us," he declared.
The region of Madrid, the most hit in the country with more than 6,000 deaths, was hit on Friday with the announcement of the death of a 57-year-old nurse, who worked in the intensive care unit of the Leganés hospital, near the capital.
He is the third deceased Covid-19 nurse in the country, according to the collegial organization, which represents the more than 300,000 nurses in Spain.

Religious infected

The president of the Madrid region, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, was concerned about the contagion between religious, in an interview with COPE radio.
"You are seeing a very high percentage of contagion among religious, especially among nuns who are in schools, who are confined in (elderly) residences in Madrid," said the conservative leader.
"They never say anything, they are always working for others in a very discreet way, and they are very old," added Díaz Ayuso, who asked them to notify "the slightest symptom" they have in order to attend to them.
