In the last 24 hours, Spain saw 514 new deaths from COVID-19 and over 6,000 new confirmed cases, according to official data released on Tuesday.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media.
In total, the country reported 2,696 deaths and 39,673 cases.
The Madrid region, which has recorded over 1,500 deaths, has been forced to begin using a large skating rink as a temporary morgue as regular funeral services have been unable to cope with the mounting number of contagious corpses.
A military-style hospital has also been set up in the capital city’s major conference center. With as many as 5,000 beds to treat COVID-19 patients, it is expected to soon become the country’s largest hospital.
The latest figures show that further 2,636 people are currently in intensive care units.
