Can not believe the figures for new infection at all, if you go back a few months and compare the figures you will see a pattern emerge eg Low on Monday High on Tuesday and all over the place the rest of the week. If you can not report ACCURATLY don’t bother to report at all. no wonder the public just don’t trust the Spanish Government on this subject.

We do report ACCURATELY. Figures released on Tuesday often include data delayed from weekends. That has been the case since the start of the pandemic and has been explained in many previous reports. Our figures are taken from the central Ministry of Health. Regional figures might differ.
