Bangla sanglap desk: The Spanish foreign minister insists Spain is a “safe country for tourists” after the UK’s decision to make travellers quarantine for 14 days after returning from the holiday destination.
Arancha Gonzalez Laya tells a news conference Spain is seeing outbreaks “like in any other European country” but they are “perfectly controlled”.
She also says the outbreaks are focused in three areas – Barcelona, Lleida and Saragossa – and all of them are “perfectly traced”.
The foreign minister adds: “Half of those that are Covid positive in Spain are asymptomatic, which gives a very clear indication of the huge efforts that all the regions in Spain are undertaking to test its citizens for covid.
“And once they are identified they are being subject to very strict social distancing measures.”
