The Ministry of Health recalls that these data published today on the Grafcan portal are provisional and are pending validation by the Public Health teams.

For this reason, the data may change once they are epidemiologically reviewed and consolidated by the General Directorate of Public Health according to the established protocols, so discrepancies may arise in the coming days in the updating of the data contained on the Grafcan website.
