Covid Map

THOUSANDS of towns and regions are now in virtual lockdown as the second wave of Coronavirus sweeps across Spain.

Various measures to restrict any further spread are being phased in, such as curfews, perimeter borders and tighter social distancing rules.

There are now reportedly 4,815 municipalities in different phases of the de-escalation, with limits to mobility and meetings.

Restrictions now affect 28 million people in Spain, more than half of the population.

Towns and cities in confinement all have over 500 cases per 100,000 recorded in the last fortnight, with over a million reported cases, nationwide.

Spain’s national broadcaster RTVE has produced this interactive map to show variations in curfews and restrictions across the country.

However, areas such as Murcia and Alicante are applying more relaxed confinement in some localities.

They include Abanilla, Fortuna and Totana, which have all returned to Phase 1 with restrictions only applying to leaving the areas.

Asturias has announced that the entire region is entering a ‘modified’ Phase 2 of de-escalation where ‘self-confinement’ is recommended and all commercial activity ceased by 10pm.

Most ‘outbreaks’ identified have come from social gatherings, according to the Ministry of Health.

Outbreaks in schools account for 13% of new cases with an increase in student accommodation noted.

The map below shows limitations to numbers of friends and family that can gather in one place.
