Coronavirus: Spain's COVID-19 death toll passes 1,000 people

Apart from Spain, Iran, Italy and China are the worst affected by the deadly virus which first originated in Chinese city Wuhan.

According to the World Health Organization, people with mild illness recover in about two weeks, while those with more severe illness may take three to six weeks to recover.

Health emergencies chief, Fernando Simon, said earlier this week that the number of infected people could actually be higher than reported as the test laboratories are "overwhelmed" and unable to process all of the samples.

Spain recorded a staggering 235 fatalities on March 20, pushing the death toll to 1,050 from 767 on March 19.

The spread of the COVID-19 continues to put significant strain on Spain's health system, with more than 1,100 people fighting the disease in intensive care.

The nationwide state of emergency, announced on March 14, bars people from all but essential outings as the country grapples with Europe's second-worst coronavirus outbreak.

Pedro Sanchez says Spain will experience a major peak in the coming week and has asked residents to be prepared "for very hard days ahead".

Spain fulfilled this Sunday eight days of confinement of its population of 47 million inhabitants, after the Government decreed the state of alarm to stop the expansion of the SARS-Cov-2 coronavirus.

France and Germany also reported more than 1,000 new cases.

Coronavirus patients arrive at a military hospital set up at the IFEMA conference centre in Madrid, Spain.

The Spanish government said on Saturday it would do whatever was needed to combat the coronavirus pandemic and warned that "the worst is yet to come" after the national toll surpassed 1,300 deaths and reached close to 25,000 cases.

The field hospital will have 5,500 beds once it is fully sent up, including 500 in an intensive care unit.
