MADRID, Sept 25 — Spain’s cumulative tally of confirmed coronavirus infections rose by 12,272 today from the previous day to 716,481, health ministry data showed.

That included 4,122 diagnosed in the last 24 hours, but these daily figures tend to end up much higher after retroactive updates of the infection tally, having exceeded 10,000 cases per day for most of last week.

The total number of Covid-19 fatalities reached 31,232 from 31,118 reported yesterday. Daily deaths are now around their highest levels since early May, but are well below the late March record of nearly 900. — Reuters
