DISOBEYING THE “STATE OF EMERGENCY” THAT WAS BOUGHT INTO LAW ON FRIDAY BY THE SPANISH PM MEANS INDIVIDUALS CAN BE FINED UP TO 30,000 EUROS AND IN SOME CASE EVEN JAIL FOR DISOBEYING THE ORDER!
Spain put its 47 million inhabitants under partial lockdown on Saturday (March 14) as part of a 15-day state of emergency to combat the coronavirus epidemic in Europe’s second worst-affected country by the disease after Italy.
Effective immediately, all Spaniards must stay home except to buy food, medicines, go to work or to the hospital, or for emergencies.
Bars, restaurants, and shops selling anything but food and other staples must shut down. All leisure and sports activities also have to close, including cinemas, theatres, swimming pools, and football grounds.
It is understood that an exact and detailed list will be published on the coming Tuesday so please check the EWN for the full report, above all, take care!
