Figures show that the coronavirus rates in Spain are increasing faster than in the previous days.
As reported in SUR Spain exceeded 10,000 new daily coronavirus infections this Friday, with exactly 10,875 new cases in 24 hours.
Spain has not exceeded 10,000 cases since February 19 when there were 11,435.

The cumulative incidence rate, which is being closely monitored by experts, has continued to rise faster than in the previous days, with the incidence rate climbing by more than 7.5 points from 174.52 to 182.09 cases per 1,000,000 population in just 24 hours.
The number of incidents has increased in all 19 areas, with the exception of Asturias. The highest rates were recorded in Aragon (12), Catalonia (15) and Ceuta (32).
After exceeding the 250 rate, five territories are already in an “extreme situation” again. Basque Country with 295, Madrid with 324, Navarra with 394, Ceuta with 465 and Melilla with 494.
The Department of Health has also reported 149 new fatalities, bringing the official death toll to 76,328.
