Spain to extend its state of emergency for one month”

It is the lowest daily increase since March 17th.

Officials say while the outbreak has been brought largely under control, restrictions must stay in place longer as the lockdown is gradually phased out.

Simon made the comments when the Spanish Ministry of Health announced that his testing capacity has increased by 18% in the past seven days, after conducting almost 2 million tests since the beginning of the epidemic.

His ministry of health also reported that a total of 50,723 health workers have been infected with the virus since the outbreak of the country, 268 other cases since Friday.

Mainland China reported five new confirmed Covid-19 cases for 16 May, down from eight the previous day, the National Health Commission said in a statement.

"The Spanish government will ask parliament to approve a new extension of the state of emergency.it would be the last state of emergency and would continue until the end of the rollback", Sanchez said in a televised address on Saturday.

"Prudence should be the rule", Sanchez said.

Earlier, the Prime Minister received parliamentary support for two-week extensions to the state of emergency that took effect on March 14 and expires May 24.

The latest data showed a further fall, with the number of overnight deaths dropping to 102 in what was the lowest figure in two months - and a far cry from the 950 of April 2 when the epidemic peaked.
