In Spain, 655 more people have died to coronavirus in the last 24 hour period. The worst of the pandemic is expected to hit the country this weekend.
Spain had also rolled out 9000 rapid testing kits. But these were found to be faulty and have had to be returned. Spain planned to increase the number of tests carried out following a commercial agreement with China.
According to figures released today Thursday, over 56,000 people have tested positive in the country.
