WATCH: A Maltese man based in Spain describes country’s pitiful situation
In Spain, the death toll from Covid-19 now stands at 3,434, an amount which is greater than the deaths in China from where the virus originated.
Alistair Bugeja, a Maltese lawyer who lives in Spain, describes the pitiful situation in this country, which is one of Malta’s Mediterranean neighbours.
He said that in Madrid the situation is so serious that the trade fair grounds and hotels have been modified to accommodate patients infected by the virus.
He described how it is obligatory for people to remain at home and that if they are spotted outside for no valid reason the Police take action against them.
