They are about double the figure provided by the government, as Health data indicates that the death toll from coronavirus in Spain it is 32,929. It must be remembered that this data only counts the deceased who have tested positive for covid-19 before dying.
This excess mortality from the INE reflects the number of deaths that have been registered above the average of previous years. Specifically, that excess of 58,850 deaths has been since March 11. Of that total, almost 50,000 died in the first wave of the virus (from March 11 to May 21).
The trend in mortality remained stable until the end of June. But It is especially now that it has grown again, since we are immersed in the second wave. It was in July when the death curve rose again significantly, already exceeding 11,000 deaths above what was expected in this period.
