According to the latest data released by the Spanish Ministry of Health, Spain has accumulatively confirmed 236,259 cases of new coronary pneumonia, a total of 27,117 deaths, 194 newly confirmed cases in the past 24 hours, and 35 new deaths in the past 7 days. The Spanish Ministry of Health has indicated that it is revising historical data to harvest more accurate data and make further decisions, so the difference in data may last for a few days.

Spanish officials announced that from May 26 to June 4, all Spain will pay a 10-day official mourning for the people who died in the country due to the new coronary pneumonia epidemic. During the mourning period, 14184 official buildings and all naval ships in Spain will be half-flagged during the mourning period. This is the longest official mourning since Spain entered the post-Franco era in 1975.

Spanish Prime Minister Sanchez promised to pay the deepest respect to all the victims of the new crown epidemic, and King Felipe VI of Spain will be the leader of official mourning.
