CORONAVIRUS CLAIMS MORE THAN 2K LIVES IN SPAIN

THE Spain health department urgently distributed almost 650,000 rapid testing kits as the deadly virus has claimed 2,182 lives in the country.

On Sunday, from 1,720 the number of confirmed cases increased from 28,572 to 33,089.

Testing kits are being issued for frontline hospital staff and those in regions most affected by the virus.

The Spanish prime minister Pedro Sanchez has called on the EU to instigate a “marshall plan” to counter the economic effects of the crisis, and declared that the state of emergency would be extended until 11 April.

Sánchez’s vice-president, Carmen Calvo, was admitted to hospital for treatment for a respiratory infection, Spanish media reported. Two cabinet ministers and the prime minister’s wife, Begoña Gómez, have tested positive for the coronavirus.
