Spain reported 637 new deaths Monday, the lowest toll in 13 days, for a total of over 13,000 dead. New infections were the lowest in two weeks.

Britain’s outbreak appears headed in the opposite direction as the country reported more than 600 deaths Sunday and Prime Minister Boris Johnson was moved to intensive care in hospital late Monday after being infected last month.
