Russia surpassed Spain and took second place in the world in the number of officially confirmed cases of coronavirus infection. This follows from TASS calculations based on statements by the authorities of these countries.

The number of infected people in Russia, according to the latest information from the operational headquarters for the fight against coronavirus, has reached 232,243. In Spain, the number of infected is 227,436.

At the same time, official statistics in the Kingdom since the end of April include only the results of PCR tests, although before that it also took into account the results of testing for antibodies to the coronavirus. Because of this, the official number of infected people decreased: if on April 25, 223.7 thousand cases were reported, then on the 26th-only 207.6 thousand. Some media outlets continue to add up these indicators, although information about antibody tests is not published in reports of the Spanish Ministry of health.
