Spain has reported 812 new deaths related to coronavirus in the past 24 hours.

Authorities say 6,398 more people have been infected.

The growth in coronavirus cases in hard-hit Spain appears to be slowing, the country's foreign minister has told the BBC.

Another 6,400 cases were confirmed on Monday, the lowest increase in new cases for a week. The total of deaths reached 7,340 after 812 new fatalities.

It comes as a national lockdown expanded to instruct non-essential workers to stay home for two weeks.

Meanwhile, the doctor leading the country's response has tested positive.

Spain's latest national figures show that the virus' upwards curve appears to be flattening out, Foreign Minister Arancha González says.
