Death toll is also now 16,353, third to Italy 18,849 and United States 18,761 deaths.
Since Thursday, Spain has been posting lower single-day numbers of new cases and related deaths.

The World Health Organisation and many observers believe Spain to be past the peak of the virus.
But Spain is not letting down its guards against the virus.

‘The fire starts to come under control’ Sanchez told MPs in Madrid.
He said the country would have ‘total victory’ over COVID-19.
