Number of daily Covid-19 deaths in Spain continues to fall
A glimmer of hope from one of the most hard-hit countries.
For the third day in a row, the daily coronavirus death toll in Spain has fallen.
More than 12,400 people in Spain have died in connection with Covid-19, but with an increase of 674 deaths in the last 24 hours, the daily death toll has fallen for the third day in a row.
As of Sunday morning, 12,418 people have died in Spain after testing positive for Covid-19.
30,759 cases of the virus have been recorded in the country which is an increase of 6,023 confirmed cases since Saturday.
This weekend also saw France and Italy's daily death toll fall, which is likely caused by stringent lockdowns taking place across Europe.
Earlier in the week, Spanish Health Minister Salvador Illa said that the outbreak of Covid-19 in the country was reaching its peak.
Having been on lockdown for three weeks, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez is expected to extend the current lockdown by another two weeks, until the end of April.
Sanchez told the nation on Saturday: "We are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel."
