The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Spain surpassed 700,000 on Thursday, the highest number in Western Europe, and more than 31,000 people have died from Covid-19.

According to Illa, the second wave of infections in Spain has a lower intensity and velocity than the first one. The minister explained that the high numbers come mostly after mass testing. Authorities claim they can now detect six or seven cases out of 10, as opposed to one in 10 a few months earlier.

Nevertheless, Illa said that “tough weeks are coming in Madrid,” urging residents and officials to “act with resolve to bring the pandemic under control.”

Spanish Education Minister Isabel Celáa said on Thursday the reopening of schools in the country over the past two weeks had not led to any significant increase in infections. Less than one percent of all classes have had to be quarantined so far.

A drastic nationwide lockdown was imposed on March 14 and ended in late June. During that period, adults were allowed to leave home only to buy food, medicine or to walk the dog.
