Catalonia locks down 200,000 over coronavirus outbreak

作者:admin 2020-07-05

Spain's northeastern Catalonia region on Saturday locked down an area with about 200,000 residents following a surge in cases of the new coronavirus.

Catalonia's regional president Quim Torra said there had been a "sharp rise" in infections in Segria, a zone that includes the city of Lleida some 150 kilometres (90 miles) west of Barcelona.

"We've decided to confine Segria due to data that confirm too significant a growth in the number of COVID-19 infections," Torra told a news conference.

People would not be allowed to enter or leave the area, gatherings of more than 10 people would be banned and visits to retirement homes halted, officials said.

The restrictions do not apply to seasonal harvest workers, and movement is not restricted within the zone, however.

Regional health ministry data showed there were 3,706 cases in the Lleida region on Friday, up from 3,551 the previous day.
