Spain is First Western European Country With More Than 800,000 Cases
Spain is the first Western European country with more than 800,000 corona cases. The number of reported infections rose by 23,480 to more than 813,000 on Monday.
Only Russia has more infections, and also several countries outside Europe.
The number of corona deaths in Spain is now 32,225.
The daily death toll is back to the level of early May, but not yet ago to the record level of late March when nearly 900 people died every day.
The country was locked for months to contain the spread of the lung virus.
Because the number of infections is rising rapidly again in some cities, a limited lockdown will be in effect there also.
