a lockdown i think it's the only way to stop these outbreaks just see elsewhere in the catalonia region they've imposed a mini lockdown in the rural district surrounding the city of later it's after the number of covered 1000 cases nearly doubled in a week to 325 on friday in. some cases have been linked to fruit picking operations now the area's 200000 residents are banned from meeting in groups of more than 10 and they can't travel outside the zone. the new measures come a day after the united kingdom announced its so-called safe travel list those heading to dozens of countries including spain won't have to go into quarantine when they return notably absent from the list is portugal which thanks to quick action of voided the exponential rates of infections and deaths that spain has suffered on friday portugal reported $374.00 new covered cases mostly in and around the capital lisbon while the city's a tourist destination most british holidaymakers head for the southern coast of the
