The Ministry of Health has confirmed that there is yet another outbreak of the coronavirus crisis, this time it has erupted in Costa Blanca’s Castellon after a San Juan party turned sour.

This new outbreak consists of various family units who had come together to celebrate San Juan, although none are in serious condition, there are 16 confirmed cases.
All of the individuals involved are currently in quarantine and their actions are being traced back to ensure all possible contacts are safe.
One of the family members claims to have experienced symptoms as early as June 22, the day before San Juan.
Another outbreak has also been identified in a company in Rafelbunyol, however, this cluster is progressing favourably as the Ministry of Health confirms that six out of the first seven cases have already been discharged.
The rest are waiting to receive results through a blood test and this will determine if they are considered to be part of the outbreak as active cases or rather confirmed as previous holders of the virus.
