Read in Catalan

Wednesday April 15th. Spain is slowly expanding its coronavirus testing among the population. And this, according to the Spanish health authorities, is one of the factors behind the major feature of the latest coronavirus statistics for Spain and Catalonia: a significant new increase in the number of positive cases of Covid-19 detected since the last official count: in Spain, there have been 5,092 new cases in the last 24 hours, more than 2,000 more than those diagnosed the previous day. In Catalonia, the daily increase in new cases confirmed was even more pronounced, from 471 in the previous situation report to 1,301 now.  

On the other hand, with regard to fatalities, this Wednesday the Spanish ministry's data shows a slight decrease. There have been 523 Covid-19 deaths in Spain, 90 of those in Catalonia, in the last 24 hour interval. In both cases these terrible figures are nevertheless less than those of the previous day. Covid-19 has taken 18,579 lives in the Spanish state, in total.
