UPDATE: These maps show the latest coronavirus hotspots in Spain
Map showing the latest hotspots in Catalonia.
Spain is now reporting between 7,000 and 8,000 new cases of Covid-19 per day. But the infection rates differ vastly depending on the region in which you live and sometimes even the district.
Spain last week became the first European Union country to surpass half a million Covid-19 infections, and it currently has a total of 566,326 confirmed cases according to the ministry — with 12,183 new cases recorded on Friday from the day before.

During the past two weeks Spain has reported between 7,000 and 8,000 new cases of the virus per day. On Thursday the country reported more than 10,000 new infections.

But while the number of confirmed cases is sharply higher, the mortality rate is far below that recorded at the height of health crisis in late March and April, when nearly 900 deaths a day were reported.

In the last seven days the country recorded 241 virus deaths.

So where are the hotspots? 

This interactive map shows those province with active outbreaks and those with municipalities that have been confined in a bid to slow the spread of the virus. 

So far four neighbourhoods in Palma de Mallorca, a town in Valencia and the cities of Salamanca and Valladolid have perimeter restrictions in place. Yet Madrid which is yet again the epicentre of the coronavirus and has recorded more than a third of all recent cases in Spain, no confinement measures are in place.

Spain is  top of the list of EU/EEA countries for the number of new cases per population size according European Centre for Disease Protection and Control (ECDC) with Spain currently the only country listed with more than 200 new cases per 100,000. 

In fact the 14-day accumulated incidence of coronavirus cases registered in Spain now stands at 270.7 cases per 100,000 inhabitants up from 132.2 a month ago.

The map below shows the 14-day COVID-19 case notification rate per 100 000 in each region, according to the latest data published on September 11th.

This is how Spain compares to the rest of Europe: 
 
The biggest outbreaks have been recorded in those areas where there is a greater population destiny, including the traditionally working class districts around Madrid. 
 
This chart shows the 30 municpalities (with a population of over 50,000) that have the highest infection rate based on new cases recorded in the last two weeks.

Each week, updated figures are published on Spain's Ministry of Health Covid-19 website showing the development of Covid-19 infections by region.
 
This is the latest data provided for region by clicking through on the map.
 
 
But each regional government provides data on outbreaks and number of cases within their territory.
 
Madrid authorities produce a map which allows you to see the latest data from each barrio or neighbourhood. 
 
 
 
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.
 
 
 
This map will show you where localized outbreaks are in Andalusia: 
 
 
The Canary Islands have a similar tool to breakdown data from the archipelago. (Click on the map below to find out more)
 
 
The region of Valencia has already imposed a confinement on the one municpality after an outbreak earlier this month.  Residents in the town of Benigánim have had their movements limited after a surge in coronavirus infections.
