Spain latest - possibly some good news behind the bad news

The missus mentioned this to me a short while ago. We really need lnger term trends. The daily figures bounce up and down. Also, apparently there may be some creative accounting going on.

They're not just looking a the cases / deaths trends, but at the spread and profile ....

"It might seem a contradiction in terms, but it is not: while records are being broken in absolute numbers of people infected and the daily death toll is still in the hundreds, the spread of the virus seems to be slowing down"

"“We don’t know if this is going to be a trend, but this is data that gives us some hope,“ said the head of the Healthcare Emergency Department, Fernando Simón

This is the scary bit though ....

"That said, the figures for the lethality of the virus in Spain are still very high. More than seven per cent of those infected end up dying. "
