The newspaper El Pais has reported that the rate of infection has fallen in Spain for the first time in a month, a small drop but one that suggests a change of trend and Health Minister Carolina Darias confirmed that the country was heading towards a “plateau” that was likely to remain in place for some time due to the difference in infections rates across the region. She said “we are beginning to stabilize the curve and flatten it”, although she added that “The rises in incidence among unvaccinated people are seen in all regions”. 

The newspaper El Pais has reported that Spain has recovered nine out of 10 jobs lost during the COVID-19 pandemic as the Spanish job market continues to bounce back from the devastating impact of the coronavirus. According to the latest figures, the unemployment rate has dropped to 15.26% as more than 1 million jobs have been recovered.
