MADRID – Ana Pastor, the outgoing health minister, said Tuesday the survivors of the Madrid bomb attacks "were getting better all the time".
But Pastor, who visited the injured in the Gregorio Marañón hospital, added that the memory of the terrorist attacks was "not going to leave their minds".
Pastor said there were 145 people still being treated for their injuries in hospital, nearly two weeks after the attacks.
Two of these were described as in a "critical" condition, 15 were "very grave" and 92 others were in a serious condition.
Pastor said: "The attacks are not going to leave their(the patients') minds, nor those of the other injured people, or their relatives or the Spanish people."
All those who were caught up in the 11 March attacks are receiving psychological help.
Pastor visited some of the most gravely injured and said later they were recuperating "favourably".
"They are animated and very thankful to the medical staff," she said.
