This is an increase of 390 cases with the regions of Aragon and Catalonia leading the increase.

Authorities have reimposed restrictions in parts of Catalonia, including home confinement in the Lleida region, affecting around 160,000 people, and health officials have said measures should be taken in the capital, Barcelona , but gave no details.

More than 170 localized epidemics have appeared across Spain since the lifting of its national lockdown – one of the strictest in Europe, on June 21, with Catalonia at the epicenter of new epidemics.

The Spanish Ministry of Health has estimated the number of cases confirmed in the last 24 hours in the region to 142, against 91 the day before.

In Aragon, in the east, the number of infections jumped to 266 from 160, according to the Ministry of Health.

The Catalan health authority, which counts both confirmed and suspected cases, said the number had climbed overnight to 1,293, the highest since at least May 18, when the counting methodology changed.

The Catalan capital – home to 1.6 million people and one of the most visited cities in Europe – tripled its number of cases of coronavirus last week.

Authorities have also imposed restrictions in three neighborhoods in a suburb of Barcelona that is home to some 260,000 people.
