Madrid celebrated its first day without any Covid-19 deaths today, for the first time since the pandemic started.
Isabel Díaz Ayuso, Madrid’s Regional President, tweeted the good news that “Great news: Yesterday was the first day that Madrid did not register deaths due to #COVID19. Together we can ensure that this nightmare is not repeated.”
Madrid registered two Covid-19 deaths from coronavirus in the region yesterday, three fewer than on Friday, but none today.
However, Madrid remains one of the regions still registering the most new Covid-19 infections. Nevertheless, the current statistics are considerably lower than a few weeks ago, and steadily declining, according to the health authorities.
The regional head had also warned that he re-opening of borders and resumption fo incoming travellers to Madrid Barajas Airport could allow a “door” for the virus to re-enter the region.
