Spain past the peak of coronavirus outbreak


Spain says it is close to passing the peak of infections as the number of coronavirus deaths fell for the second day in a row. The toll of 809 deaths in one day is the lowest in Spain for a week.

It is said that government officials are trying to get masks for all citizens as part of plans to eventually ease restrictions. Currently face masks are almost impossible to get hold of , and previosly said they served little purpose outside hospitals. The current views on wearing masks appear to have changed along with other countries, such as US health authorities on Friday recommending their use in public. Austria, the Czech Republic, Israel and Turkey have also mandated the use of masks in various public places.
