The death toll has risen again in Spain as the country records 932 more Covid-19 related deaths on Friday making Spain the second-highest country worst hit by the pandemic after Italy.

With the new figure, there are now over 10,000 Covid-19 victims in Spain.

Despite the Health Ministry’s hopes of containing the climbing figures, the ministry’s data show a 2,770 increase in active case since Thursday, totalling about 76,262.

However, the Health ministry has recorded a drastic decline in new infection rates with a total of 30,513 recoveries and 6,416 patients in intensive care units.
