In Spain, eight million people tested positive for COVID-19, according to health statistics
According to statistics from the Health Ministry, the number of people who have tested positive for COVID-19 in Spain since the epidemic began in 2020.
Since Thursday, the number of cases has increased by 162,500.
On Friday, Spain's 14-day coronavirus infection rate increased to 3,192 cases per 100,000, according to government data.
The total number of people infected with COVID-19 was 8,093,036, while the death toll was 90,759, according to the statistics.
Since November infections have risen without delay, owing to the Omicron variant's greater transmission and large swathes of the population mixing over the holidays, although hospital admissions are still far below those seen in earlier events.
