Spain saw a third consecutive drop in its daily deaths from the new corona virus on Saturday, killing 510 people, the government said.
It was the smallest daily increase since March 23 in Spain that has one of the worst COVID-19 outbreaks in the world.
The update for the past 24 hours increased the total number of deaths in the country to 16,353 and the number of confirmed cases by another 4,800 to 161,852.
Masks will be issued at subway and train stations starting Monday, as some companies reopen after a two-week "hibernation" period, the health minister said on Friday.
Although health chiefs say the pandemic has peaked, they have urged the population to strictly adhere to the national blockade introduced on March 14 to slow the spread of the virus.
The restrictions will remain in effect until April 25, though the government has made it clear that it is announcing another two-week extension.
Spain tightened its nationwide ban on March 30 and stopped all non-essential activities until after Easter to further curb the spread of the virus.
