Hospitals in #Madrid are overwhelmed with #COVID19 patients as #Spain saw the death toll shoot up by more than 700 on Wednesday, surpassing China.

At the Severo Ochoa hospital outside Madrid, emergency doctor Luis Díaz Izquierdo said at one point he and his colleagues were treating 280 patients despite only having capacity for 80 people.

Many patients are being transferred to other hospitals including a field hospital set up at the IFEMA trade fair complex, but new patients arrive at the hospitals daily.

The ministry of health stated that Spain recorded a daily increase of 738 deaths, pushing their overall death toll to 3,434, which is past China’s 3,285.
