Lack of airport testing in Spain could have attributed to rise in Covid cases

Data collected by the Centre for the Coordination of Health Alerts and Emergencies (CCAES) of the Ministry of Health shows that since the end of the first lockdown on May 11 until the announcement of the new state of emergency on October 29, around 4,007 confirmed positive cases of coronavirus have entered Spain from other countries.
