Spain has suffered its worst day yet as 838 die from coronavirus as the country’s death total soars to 6,528.

It surpasses the death toll for the previous 24 hours, announced yesterday morning by six.

Only Italy’s single-day death tally is worse than Spain’s – with 969 dying there from coronavirus in the 24 hours between Thursday and Friday.

The new Spanish Ministry of Health figures show 78,797 people have been infected, 43,397 have needed to be hospitalised, 4,907 people have been admitted to intensive care and 14,709 people have been cured of the disease.

Spain is tightening its coronavirus lockdown by ordering all non-essential workers to stay indoors.

The ban on a range of work activities which were allowed in the first two weeks after a state of emergency was introduced, will start tomorrow (MON) and last until April 9.

Spanish PM Pedro Sanchez announced the new restrictions in an address to the nation yesterday evening.

He said: ‘I’m announcing to you that the Spanish government will tomorrow (SUN) approve in an emergency Cabinet meeting an exceptional measure.

‘All workers performing non-essential activities must remain at home for the next fortnight like they do at the weekend.’

He added: ‘If we achieve the level of mobility we’re seeing at weekends on working days, we can halt even more the spread of this pandemia.’
