Spain, on the other hand, has registered three days of less than 100 Covid-19 deaths. Approximately 83 fatalities were recorded today – although higher than yesterday’s 59, the numbers have remained below 100 for the third consecutive day, with the country’s total Covid-19 death toll now standing at 27,778.
Worldwide, however, more than 319,000 people have died from the disease, with 4.8 million people diagnosed with coronavirus across the globe, according to the Johns Hopkins University.
