The Spanish government announced on Friday the areas that will move to new phases of the coronavirus deescalation plan. Madrids request to transition to Phase 1, which allows social gatherings of up to 10 people, was rejected again by the central government. Some restrictions on shops in the region, however, will be lifted in a bid to reactivate the economy.
Earlier in the week, the government introduced a 14-day quarantine for all international travelers to Spain. The measure, which came into effect on Friday, has alarmed the Spanish tourism sector, which is already struggling from the fallout of the coronavirus crisis.
And in other news, the preliminary results of an antibody study has revealed that just 5% of Spaniards have contracted the coronavirus.
