The restrictions, which were imposed on October 2, barred residents of Madrid and the nine surrounding towns from leaving the city limits except for work, school or on medical grounds. A curfew was imposed on bars and restaurants from 11pm.

However, following the court ruling, Sanchez told regional authorities that the central government would invoke a state of emergency, which basically keeps the same restrictions, if they fail to pass stricter measures themselves. Central authorities insisted that stricter measures were needed ahead of the upcoming bank holiday weekend.

The country currently has the highest number of coronavirus infections in Europe, and the World Health Organization said there were 741 coronavirus cases per 100,000 people in Madrid in the two weeks to October 7, as the city is again at the epicenter of the Covid-19 crisis in Europe.
