More than 100,000 people have recovered from COVID-19 in Spain, Spain's Ministry of Health, Consumer Affairs and Social Services reported on Monday.
According to daily data published by the ministry, 100,875 patients have beaten the virus, an increase of 2,144 in the past 24 hours.
Up to 23,521 people died from the coronavirus in Spain, the ministry said, adding that there were 331 deaths in the 24-hour period until 9 pm. local time (1900 GMT) on Sunday.
Meanwhile, 1,831 new cases of COVID-19 were detected by PCR tests, which find out whether the coronavirus is active in the body, bringing the total number of cases detected by this method to 209,465.
That is slightly more than the 1,729 new cases reported on Sunday, but the daily increase in new cases remains below one percent.
On Sunday, the Madrid regional government announced that the drop in the infection rate means that a field hospital will be closed on May 1.
The field hospital was opened on March 22, at the IFEMA Exhibition Center, with a capacity to serve 5,500 patients. (Xinhua / NAN)
