Spain has now seen more deaths from the coronavirus  than any other country except Italy, with officials warning that the peak of its outbreak has still not been reached.

The nation has recorded 3,434 deaths from Covid-19, the Ministries of Health and Science announced, pushing it above China in total fatalities. The numbers are up 27% on the day before. Deputy Prime Minister Carmen Calvo is among those to test positive , the Prime Minister’s office said in a statement. She is quarantined in a hospital and is making good progress, the statement said. Spain is under a countrywide lockdown, and top health official Fernando Simon predicted the nation had still not reached the crest of its outbreak. The number of cases will continue to rise in the coming days, he said. Earlier this week, he had suggested that the peak of the infections could come “in a matter of days.”

The total number of positive tests in the country rose to 47,610, putting it fourth in the world, behind China, Italy and the United States.
