On Saturday Spain imposed a national lockdown and the government has placed restrictions on the public, everyone has been told to stay indoors.

The Spanish government are allowing people to leave their homes to buy food and seek medical health care.

The Spanish prime minister, Pedro Sánchez of Spain said, the new measures are drastic.

“Spain is demonstrating in these critical hours that it has the capacity to overcome adversity.”

He warned, “We are facing very difficult weeks of efforts and sacrifices.

“Some important rights must be limited if we want to beat the virus.

He added, the final victory over the coronavirus will come only “when we have a vaccine.”

On Saturday the number infected in Spain rose to more than 6,300 people with 196 people dead.

The British government has stepped up their “wartime” extreme measures in response to the coronavirus pandemic, but Boris Johnson has refused to rule out placing entire cities in the UK in total lockdown.

The UK shutdown of entire cities could be imposed within just 20 days, according to ITV.

The health secretary Matt Hancock said on Sunday the UK has not been tested like this “since the Blitz.”

He further said that every Briton aged over 70 will be told “within the coming weeks” to stay at home, possibly for up to four months.
