Spanish deaths fall for fourth day

The daily number of coronavirus deaths has fallen in Spain for a fourth consecutive day yesterday boosting hopes the country has passed the outbreak's peak. Monday's increase of 637 deaths means 13,055 have died in total. Spain's population has been living under severe restrictions for more than three weeks, with lockdown measures now extended toward the end of April. The nation has more than 135,000 confirmed cases, the most in Europe, but new infections have been slowing. Spanish officials plan to widen coronavirus testing to include those without symptoms.
