The journalist Vicente Vallés became a trending topic last night —a prominent topic— on Twitter when talking about the number of fatalities of the coronavirus provided hours earlier by Fernando Simón, who announced the first day without deaths in Spain. Despite the positive data, the presenter of the Atresmedia news program stated that Madrid, Catalonia, Castilla León and Castilla la Mancha totaled 29 people.
After giving way to a video in which Fernando Simón explained how the Executive accounted for the data provided by the communities, Vallés launched a veiled criticism of the Government that was applauded by the tweeting community: “We will see if they correct the figures again or if they keep them ”, he affirmed with a certain air of disbelief. “This is the information provided by the Government, the reality seems to be a different one.” Here you can see the video:
