Coronavirus Outbreak In Malaga

Malaga is experiencing a small coronavirus outbreak, as 83 people have tested positive for covid-19 this week.  All of the infected are connected to a Red Cross centre, where young migrants were taken after being rescued from a boat in the Mediterranean.

The outbreak is being described as minor at the moment.  All entrances and exits to the centre have been sealed off and everyone inside is now being quarantined.  Medical staff are now tracing and contacting everyone who may have come into contact with people who have been present at the centre.


No Plans For Another Lockdown

There are no plans to return Spain to a state of alarm, as local authorities have been given the power to manage local outbreaks.  Salvador Illa, the Minister for Health, said “the State of Alarm is a useful instrument for the government in cases of emergency, we have no intention of bringing it back”.  He added that local authorities are “controlling local outbreaks well.”
