Breaking news about the coronavirus in Spain and the world

The PP questioned this Monday the report prepared by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), which places Spain among the ten countries that carry out the most diagnostic tests for coronaviruses because, in their opinion, "these are not data comparable to those from other countries "but have been" generated by the presidential cabinet "of Pedro Sánchez and do not include" not even the more than 600,000 tests returned as defective, "according to party sources.

Specifically, in that OECD report Spain is ranked eighth in the ranking, led by Iceland (134.9), followed by Luxembourg (64.6), Estonia (36.9), Lithuania (36.6) Israel (30), Italy (29.7) and Switzerland (28.8). Behind the Spanish are Norway (28.5), Austria (25.9), Denmark (25.3), Latvia (25.2) or Germany (15.1).

The aforementioned report highlights the importance of carrying out these tests to define confinement strategies and reduce the risks of new outbreaks. In his personal Twitter account, the Secretary General of the OECD, Ángel Gurría, has highlighted how "good" it means to see that Spain is in the 'top 10', since it performs 28.6 tests per 1,000 inhabitants, while the European average stands at 22.9.

PP sources consider that the ranking contains data "more than questionable", which "can not be given credibility". "They congratulate themselves on their own data, which has been provided by Sánchez's presidential cabinet," they maintain in the ranks of Pablo Casado's party.
