In France, 493 new infections were reported on Monday, sharply down from more than 3,000 new infections on each of the previous two days. The number of hospitalisations for the disease rose by 65 to 4,925, increasing for the third day running.
Reuters reports that the Spanish health ministry on Monday announced 1,833 new coronavirus infections diagnosed in the past 24 hours, below Friday’s post-lockdown record of 2,987 but more than three times the average seen in July.
Daily infection statistics tend to dip on Monday due to fewer diagnoses taking place on Sunday.
