Spain has the world's second-highest COVID-19 death toll after Italy, where over 10,000 people died from the deadly disease, World News reported.
It was recorded over twice as many deaths as China, where the outbreak began late last year.
Spanish health officials announced on Sunday morning that 6,528 people have now died from the coronavirus in the Mediterranean country and a total of 78,797 people have contracted the illness.
The continued decrease in the rate of new people getting infected with the illness suggests that strict measures introduced by Spanish authorities in mid-March are curbing the spread of the virus. The nationwide lockdown is set to remain in place until at least 9 April.
In a televised address on Saturday night, Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez announced new measures instructing all non-essential workers to stay at home for two weeks.
