Spain overtakes China; 12,300 health workers infected

On Monday, 4,050 new cases of infection were reported and the number increased to 1,01,739.

Authorities also stepped up the country's half-a-month lockdown on Monday, beginning with a new two-week period of "hibernation", as described by a Spanish cabinet member, in order to alleviate the pressure of the illness in the country's health system. More than 160,000 people have recovered, according to Johns Hopkins.

The country also confirmed another 812 deaths in 24 hours from the coronavirus on Monday, bringing the total number of deaths to 7,340, according to health ministry figures.
