HOUSE-BOUND Spaniards have filled empty streets with applause for the country’s medical staff.

The #AplausoSanitario challenge has filled social media with videos of streets from Madrid to Barcelona to Murcia at 10pm this evening.

It comes as coronavirus-hit regions in Spain have begun shutting bars, restaurants, business, venues, events and restricting travel.

On Monday, the government will take charge of autonomous regions and enforce a ‘state of alarm’ ordering people to stay at home.
