By fall of 2020, Spain had the highest number of Covid cases in Western Europe, with more than 610,000, while more than 30,000 individuals had died. According to a Reuter's report,, at the peak of the pandemic, Barcelona’s district with the lowest income had 2.5 times more cases than the richest, while across the Catalonia region the mortality rate was five times higher among the poorest. Meantime, in Madrid the infection rate in a northern district was almost six times lower than in a southern district with a lower average income and a higher migrant population.
