New COVID-19 cases in the Valencian Community have slowest weekly growth rate in Spain

Hospital admissions dip below '300' mark as COVID-19 cases continue falling in Costa Blanca and Valencia areas of Spain

NEW CONFIRMED coronavirus cases are slowing down in the Valencian Community as official figures show that the region is doing much better compared to other parts of Spain.

Over the last seven days, 32.88 cases were diagnosed per 100,000 people, which is the lowest accumulated weekly figure in Spain.

That contrasts with the Madrid region which has seen parts of it reintroduce lockdown measures after case figures of almost 700 per 100,000 residents.

The Valencian Health Ministry said that there were 301 new coronavirus infections last weekend compared to almost 900 reported seven days earlier.

The breakdown shows 154 new cases in Valencia Province, with 144 in Alicante Province and just three in Castellon Province.

Two outbreaks were reported in Alicante City, one of which involved ten people in a social situation.
