The coronavirus is hitting Europe with full force. The force of the epidemic is experienced in Spain, where the federal government decides what new restrictions it will introduce in the near future.
Coronavirus Spain and new restrictions. Catalonia without bars and restaurants
Some of the new restrictions were introduced on Friday, October 16. These, due to the growing number of coronavirus infections in Spain, affected Catalonia, among others.
In this popular region for tourists, bars and restaurants will be closed for the next 15 days. The new restrictions mean that meals can only be ordered to go, which has already bothered a large part of the inhabitants.
Madrid closed, Salamanca cordoned off
They are protesting because in the capital of Spain - Madrid, where coronavirus infections are the most frequent, bars and restaurants remain open from morning until 11 p.m. Madrid has been closed as a closed area for a week and residents cannot leave the city.
The situation is also bad in Salamanca. It is a city in western Spain. The new restrictions will apply to the entire city, and it will be separated from the rest of the country by a sanitary cordon. This will be applied from midnight on Saturday.
According to the portal Lainformation.com, the decision was made after the number of coronavirus infections in the city per 100,000. The inhabitants number almost 500. Due to such a serious threat, it will be possible to enter the city only for work, in case of a court case, or for a university, although the latter option will soon be discarded due to the closure of more branches in the city's universities.
Coronavirus in Spain. New restrictions are coming soon
Spain is also planning new additional restrictions. These would go into effect next week. As reported by "El Mundo", among the restrictions in question, there may be a ban on smoking in the streets, as well as a reduction in the number of passengers on public transport.
The new restrictions may also completely close all interiors of bars and restaurants in Spain. Meals and drinks can only be served on the terraces and gardens in front of the premises.
