Today, new restrictive measures came into effect to combat the pandemic, namely the closure of bars, restaurants and other catering establishments at 6pm, until November 24th.

The Government also advises citizens not to go abroad, “except for strictly necessary reasons”, given the increase in cases of the new coronavirus in Europe, warning of the possibility of tightening the restrictive measures.


The Spanish Ministry of Health reported on Monday that the country added 52,188 new cases of new coronavirus infection to the total accumulated cases, now reaching a total of 1,098,320. This value corresponds to the weekend, since there is no data update on Saturday and Sunday.

The disease is transmitted by a new coronavirus detected in late December 2019 in Wuhan, a city in central China.

After Europe took over from China as the center of the pandemic in February, the American continent is now the one with the most confirmed cases and the highest number of deaths.
