Cases of coronavirus confirmed in Spain in 2020 by region

The number of cases of the coronavirus disease that originated in the Chinese city of Wuhan (COVID-19) in Spain amounted to over 110 thousand as of April 2, 2020. The virus spread to all Spanish regions, with the Community of Madrid suffering the highest number of cases with 32 thousand people. The impact in the northern regions of Catalonia and Basque Country was also significant, with 22 thousand and 7.3 thousand cases respectively, figures that stood far from those of the outbreak in Madrid.

Spain: one of the epicenters of the outbreak

Since Spain confirmed its first case, the authorities have confirmed 10 thousand deaths as a result of complications from coronavirus, most of them in the Community of Madrid. As of the same date, the number of recoveries Spain registered was higher than that of deaths, with over 26.7 thousand patients that were able to regain their health.
In Spain, the first confirmed case was a German tourist spending some days in La Gomera, Canary Islands, at the end of January 2020.
The impact of the outbreak of this disease was such that the global stock markets were affected. The Spanish IBEX-35 was no exception to that, decreasing by 2500 stock market points during the first days of March.

COVID-19: background information

COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that had not previously been identified in humans. The first case was detected in the Hubei province of China at the end of December 2019. Thousands of new cases are being reported each day, and because the illness has only recently been detected, it is not known exactly how the virus is spreading from person to person. However, the outbreak of the SARS coronavirus, which began in 2002, is thought to have spread via cough and sneeze droplets.
