PRIME Minister Mariano Rajoy and King Felipe VI have met in Mallorca to discuss the Ebola virus outbreak and its implications for Spain.
The meeting – the pair’s last for the summer – covered a variety of topics, including Spain’s recovering economy, but a large emphasis was placed on the Ebola epidemic.
Rajoy said the government would pay for the repatriation of the Madrid priest who recently returned from Africa after being infected with the deadly virus.
The PM seemed disillusioned with the Ebola controversy, saying that the solution was simple: “It’s just common sense.”
To solve any epidemic issues in Spain, Rajoy and Felipe discussed the construction of treatment facilities should the problem become any more serious.
