Protests erupt in Covid-hit Barcelona as bars and restaurants shut for 15 days

Spain’s health minister, Salvador Illa, told parliament he is aware that Catalonians are tired after months of effort and sacrifice, but added, “it is not the time to relax measures, we have very tough weeks and months ahead of us.” 

The regional government also elected to extend the closure of restaurants and shopping centers, as well as maintaining reduced capacity at commercial premises and a suspension on cultural and sporting activities. The restrictions were originally brought in on October 16, but will now be extended for a further 15 days. 

The region, which is home to the tourist hotspot of Barcelona, has become something of a hotbed for coronavirus over the last month.

Between October 19 and 25, the last week for which figures are available, the Catalonia government reported 30,407 new Covid-19 infections in the community across the region, more than double those reported two weeks ago.
