AN APPEAL has gone out on social media to stage a minute’s silence in memory of all the elderly people who have died from coronavirus in Spain at 9pm tonight, Sunday.

People who want to join in the tribute are asked to go onto their balconies or terraces or to stand at their windows with a lighted candle and offer a minute’s silence for elderly victims “who are leaving us without being to say goodbye.”
