Spain is currently taking the first steps to ease the quarantine regime, which was one of the strictest in the world.

Under the quarantine regime introduced on 14 March in an effort to reduce the spread of Covid-19, Spanish people are essentially required to stay at home.

Unlike in other European countries, children in Spain were not allowed to leave home until now, but adults could only leave their homes to buy food, medicine, take dogs for a walk, or if they needed medical help urgently.

However, from Sunday, children under the age of 14 can be out of home for one hour but must be accompanied by a parent. True, they should not be more than one kilometer from home.

Starting next weekend, it will be able to play sports and go for walks outside the home, Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said on Saturday.

 

The government will announce a broader exit strategy on Tuesday, which will be implemented in the second half of May, he added.

The number of recoveries from Covid-19 has now reached 98,731, according to data from the Ministry of Health.

The epidemic in Spain had reached its peak on April 2, when 950 Covid-19 patients died within 24 hours, according to health officials.
