Spain has reported an additional 28 positive cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the last few hours, on top of yesterday’s 114. That total number of cases registered in the country is now approximately 142, according to Spain’s Ministry of Health. Eighteen of the positive cases are registered in Madrid, and health services have yet to ascertain the risk level of at least 10 of them.

To date, the death rate from Coronavirus worldwide stands at around 3,100, of which 2,943 are in China and approximately 50 in Italy. South Korea has reported 374 new COVID-19 cases today, totalling around 5,186. The country’s President Moon Jae-in has declared ‘a war on the Coronavirus’ and is said to have put all government agencies in the country on ‘high alert’.

If you have arrived/returned to Spain from affected areas, it’s vital to monitor your health for 14 days following arrival from infected areas. If during that time you develop symptoms of acute respiratory infections, such as fever, cough or shortness of breath, the Ministry of Health recommends you stay at home/accommodation, and call 112.
