This map allows you to check how each municipality across Spain voted. The map shows reveals that Vox have gained in the Madrid region, Murcia and pockest across the scarsely populated interior as well as in towns in rural Andalusia.

The Spanish socialist party won the share of the vote in 3,460 municipalities across Spain. The PP won 2,860 while Vox won 278.

In Catalonia, the ERC won 584 Catalan municipalities more than double that of JxCat (the party of the exiled Carles Puigdemont). The more radical CUP, won 50 municipalities.

In the Basque Country the vote was split between two Basque parties, EH Blidu, which won 183 municipalities and the PNV which won 153.

In neighbouring Navarra, Navarra Suma won 106 municpalities and in Teruel, the newly formed ¡Teruel Existe! took the biggest share winning 39 municipalities.

The following maps shows the dramatic change in how Spain voted on November 10th compared to the last election in April and the previous one in June 2016 revealing how Spain has lurched from blue to red and then became more fractured and with the growth of regional parties and of Vox.

The map on the bottom left from 2016 shows that the PP won the most votes in most of the provinces apart from the Basque and Catalan regions and some of Andalusia. Whereas on the right from April shows the red of the PSOE is the dominant colour.  While the one below shows Sunday's vote and how the PP are regaining ground plus the emergence of Vox as the largest party in Murcia.

MAPS: Where are Spain’s infection rates rising the fastest?

Spain's infection rate is the highest it's ever been and in some parts of the country has soared to over 1,800 cases per 100,000 people. Here's a closer look at infection rates across the country.

Map produced by Ministry of Health

Spain has yet again reported a new record high in coronavirus infections with 93,822 new cases registered over the weekend.

The average 14-day incidence rate across the country has jumped to 885 cases per 100,000 people, more than tripling from a month ago.

The infection rate in Spain has overtaken that of the United Kingdom which currently has imposed a lockdown on its citizens and is now the fourth highest in Europe behind Portugal (1,484) Czech Republic (1,010.4) and Ireland (926.9)

And while infection rates surpass the 500 cases per 100,000 people – the danger threshold that the EU wants to declare as dark red zones and impose travel restrictions – there are some regions of the country which have infection rates almost three times that.

Here is a map that shows which provinces in Spain have surpassed the 500 cases per 100,000 and would be classified as dark red zone by the EU.

Only the Canary Islands have registered a rate below 250 cases per 100,000 and several northern territories– Guipúzcoa in the Basque Country (475)  Navarra  (471) Asturias, (461) and Cantabria (395) fall between 250 and 500 cases per 100,000.

The province with the highest infection rate is currently Segovia in Castilla y León where it has reached 1,832 cases per 100,000 people. You can check the 7 day and 14 day cumulative incident rate in each province on the Health Ministry's interactive map below. 

When it comes to pressure on the hospitals most of Spain now falls into the highest risk category. This interactive map produced by shows in dark red those regions where at least 25 percent of Intensive Care beds are now occupied by covid patients.

In some regions covid-19 occupancy in the ICU has soared above 50 percent and in Valencia and La Rioja it has already surpassed  60 percent as this chart below illustrates:


This next interactive map, also from fact-checking site, allows you to discover the epidemiological situation in every municipality across Spain.



Madrid authorities produce a map which allows you to see the latest data from each barrio or neighbourhood or “basica health zone” which is how it determines which areas faced extra restrictions in September. 

For incidences in Catalonia, check out the interactive map produced by the regional government that allows you to search for outbreaks and number of infections in each Catalan municipality.

Valencia has reported one of the highest surge in infections in recent weeks. To take a look at the recent cases in each municipality use the interactive map produced by Valencia regional governement. (Clicking on the map below will take you to the interactive version on the Generalitat Valenciana page).

The Canary Islands have a similar tool to breakdown data from the archipelago. (Click on the map below to find out more)
