Coronavirus outbreaks spread throughout the Autonomous Communities, with Catalonia, Aragon and Navarra at the forefront

The situation of coronavirus outbreaks in Spain already leaves three autonomous communities in a “complex” situation after Navarre has increased its cumulative incidence of cases in recent days and has been forced to go back to Phase 2 in a neighborhood of Pamplona. . Thus joins Catalonia and Aragon, which continue to record a high number of positives and maintain restrictive measures.

The controversial case of the Fuenlabrada Football Club outbreak, with eleven positives, has been recorded in the Community of Madrid despite the fact that the staff is confined to a hotel in A Coruña.

As of today, this is the map of regrowths in Spain by Autonomous Communities:


Catalonia continues to be the community in the most difficult situation, since it is the one with the largest number of new active cases 721 positives in the last hours. This is why the Generalitat maintains restrictive measures in some areas of Barcelona and Lleida, where seven municipalities are confined. Also, the Government plans to carry out more forceful measures like the closure of nightlife, although he rules out tightening confinement.

The Lleida health area, with 50 active outbreaks, takes the brunt, although the Generalitat de Catalunya has confirmed community transmission also in Barcelona.


In Aragon, the increase in cases in the last few days has made the vast majority of its territories have to go back to relaxed Phase 2, with the exception of the province of Teruel. According to the latest figures, Aragon has notified 187 new cases of coronavirus.

This has led to more restrictive measures in areas such as Zaragoza, where regulations such as the restriction in hospitality establishments or the closure of nightlife are maintained. All this in addition to the recommendation not to enter or leave the city to control community transmission.


Navarra has become during these last days one of the communities with the highest cumulative incidence, together with Aragon and Catalonia, accounting for 132 new positive cases of Covid-19 in these last hours.

The Government of Navarra has returned to Phase 2 to the Mendillorri neighborhood of Pamplona due to the increase of positive cases in this focus, which accumulates a total of 137 infected people. The infected are mostly young, so the Navarre Health Service has announced that it will carry out PCR on all the inhabitants of this neighborhood between 17 and 28 years old. In addition, regarding the cases related to the Zarautz campsite, a new positive has been added to add up to a total of 12.

Madrid’s community

There are currently 7 active outbreaks in the Community of Madrid, including the Fuenlabrada Football Club, with 11 positive cases, which has caused the entire expedition to be isolated in A Coruña.

The rest of the centers are in San Agustín de Guadalix and Ciempozuelos, Torrelaguna, and Madrid capital.

Despite these cases, the government of Díaz Ayuso refuses to impose the mandatory nature of the mask.


Despite the fact that the outbreak of CF Fuenlabrada is recorded in Madrid, the expedition is isolated in a hotel in La Coruña and the Xunta has opened an investigation to find out if the Club traveled knowing that there were positives on the campus.

Regarding the re-sprouting count, the focus that worried the most a few weeks ago, that of A Mariña, continues to drop and is located with 79 active cases.
