25/01/2021




Selin ATAY-TDO- In Spain, one of the countries most affected by the novel type of coronavirus (Covid-19), people gathered to protest the government's measures to combat coronavirus.

Thousands of Spaniards chanted 'freedom' slogans and marched from Atocha Station to Plaza Colon in the capital Madrid. While the use of masks is a legal requirement in Spain, unmasked protesters criticized the ongoing vaccination campaign as a method of fighting with the epidemic. The public claimed that Covid-19 was not real, but rather a hoax. "People should remove the blindfold and be less afraid. We have to realize that it's a bad flu, you have to wait for it to pass, that's all," Milagros Solana, 71, activist said.

In Spain last week, an average of 400 people a day died from Covid-19. Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, more than 55 thousand people have died in the country due to Covid-19. The number of cases in Spain exceeded 2.5 million in total. In Spain, the number of Covid-19 cases detected in every 100 thousand people, which was 188 on December 10, rose every day after the Christmas holiday, and today's number of cases reached 828. The European Union considers places where this number exceeds 250 as risk zones.

Spain has declared a state of emergency across the country since October 25 against coronavirus, and on the initiative of local governments, existing measures have been further tightened in the past week.

In much of Spain, night curfews have been pushed forward, restrictions on free movement have been increased and the maximum number of gatherings has been reduced from 6 to 4. On the other hand, in the country, the number of those who have been vaccinated so far has exceeded 1 million 200 thousand.
