A brothel in Alicante where several of the sex workers had been diagnosed with Covid and continued working has been shut down in Alicante city for several breaches in coronavirus regulations. The premises was found to be operating contrary to new government regulations, issued by the president of the Valencian government, Ximo Puig, on Tuesday, January 19.
Officers responded to a tip-off from a concerned member of the public, and entered the brothel undercover and in plain clothes. There they found a number of women working as prostitutes despite the fact that they had been tested positive for Covid. In addition, officers found that social distancing and other sanitary measures were being flouted throughout the building.
