Below is a selection of updated ElNacional.cat graphs showing the evolution of key indicators for Covid-19 in Catalonia and Spain:
1: CATALONIA Daily increases in deaths and new cases
Daily deaths "certified" (ie, which occurred that day) = black.
Daily new confirmed cases "certified" (ie, which were confirmed that day) = blue.
2: SPAIN Daily increases in deaths and new cases
Daily deaths since March 15th = black.
Daily new confirmed cases since March 15th = blue.
Note: As the vertical line on the graph notes, until April 26th the daily cases curve was affected by the inclusion of cases confirmed by antibody tests. Subsequently these were excluded from daily figures and totals, which are limited to PCR tests.
3: CATALONIA Cumulative totals for deaths, cases and recoveries
Total confirmed cases (sky blue), total suspected cases (teal blue), total who have been in ICUs (red), total deaths (black) total medical all-clears (green).
Note: From 16th April, the Catalan health ministry included new sources of information in its daily statistics. Up till then, the figure for deaths only includes deaths of confirmed Covid-19 cases in hospitals; from 16th April, it includes all deaths from Covid-19, wherever they occurred, also including deaths among suspected cases. Similarly, from 16th April, there is additional teal blue line showing new suspected cases daily, defined as those with symptoms who are medically diagnosed as probably suffering from Covid-19 but not tested.
Vertical lines: 16/03 State of alarm (official start of lockdown in Spain); 30/03 (start of 2 week full lockdown, essential services only); 14/04 (easing of full lockdown).
4: SPAIN Cumulative totals for deaths, cases and recoveries
Total confirmed cases (sky blue), total deaths (black) total medical all-clears (green).
Note: Official Spanish statistics for both deaths and cases only include those who have tested positively to Covid-19; official Catalan statistics are broader. Until April 26th the daily cases curve included cases confirmed by antibody tests, but subsequently the count was limited to PCR tests.
Vertical lines: 16/03 State of alarm (official start of lockdown in Spain); 30/03 (start of 2 week full lockdown, essential services only); 14/04 (easing of full lockdown); 26/04 Exclusion of positive antibody test results from total; 17/05 Health Ministry stops giving statistics on medical all-clears; 24/05 Ministry modifies totals based on correction of past data.
5: CATALONIA ICUs: Occupancy of intensive care units.
Dark brown bars: number of serious Covid-19 cases in ICUs on each day; light brown: total ICU beds available for Covid-19 at that time.
6 SPAIN Total confirmed cases by autonomous communities.

Note: Figures are official Spanish figures and therefore the Catalan figures included here are calculated on a more limited basis than in the Catalonia graphs above
