The country’s health ministry revealed the country’s biggest daily jump in deaths on Saturday: a rise of 324 in one day, bringing the total to 1,326.

There has also been a significant rise in the total number of Covid-19 cases recorded across the country. In just one day almost 5,000 more people have been confirmed to have the virus, bringing the total registered number to 24,926.

Spain is now thought to be the world’s third-heaviest hit country, behind Italy and China.

Local reports say that hospitals, especially in the Madrid area, are struggling to cope with the rise in cases. The Spanish government locked down public life last weekend to try to stem the outbreak.
