In the last week this incidence has dropped more than 100 points.

In addition, the autonomous communities have notified the Ministry of Health this Monday 39,638 new cases of COVID-19, a figure lower than those of the same day last week, when 55,939 positives were reported, which indicates a strong downward trend in the evolution of the pandemic.

The total number of infections in Spain already rises to 4,627,770 since the start of the pandemic, according to official statistics. In the past two weeks, a total of 260,531 positives have been registered.
