Spain still faces a difficult time in controlling the spread of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), despite hopeful signs, the country's Health Minister said. Spain's health ministry reported on Thursday afternoon that the coronavirus cases in the country reached 110,238 and the death toll hit 10,003. Spanish Health Minister said despite the grim figures, the curve of contagion has shown signs of reaching the peak.
But he also warned of uneasy time in the coming weeks. To avoid medical system breakdown, Spain has to further reduce hospitalized patients and to ensure that all symptomatic residents can get tested and treated. The Spanish government is beefing up efforts to purchase and distribute medical supplies. Meanwhile, the country is also speeding up the production of equipment such as respirators.
