Coronavirus: Spain orders two-week quarantine for incoming travellers from May 15

Coronavirus: Spain orders two-week quarantine for incoming travellers from May 15”

"The favourable evolution of the epidemiological situation in Spain and the beginning of the escalation make it necessary to strengthen control measures by applying quarantine measures to persons coming from overseas for 14 days", according to the Spanish Government Order.

The order comes into effect on May 15 and expires on May 24, when the current State of Alarm, which limits freedom of movement in the country, is due to end.

But if the emergency state is extended for another two weeks, the travel restrictions will continue to apply. Spain has so far extended its restrictions four times since mid-March.

In the case of showing symptoms, such as a fever, cough, respiratory distress, general malaise, or other suspected symptoms of Covid-19, the quarantined individual should contact health services by telephone, and indicate that "they are in quarantine due to having come from overseas".

Health authorities identified 594 new cases on Tuesday, bringing the total to 228,030.

"The favourable evolution of the epidemic in our country and the start of the rollback make it necessary to reinforce measures of control", it said. The number of fatalities related to the disease rose 176 to 26,920.

According to the Spanish health officials, those affected by quarantine will only be allowed out to buy essentials or for urgent medical care, while always wearing a mask.

"If confinement is lifted and this 14-day quarantine policy is maintained, unfortunately, that would put the country at a competitive disadvantage", Guevara told reporters on a conference call.

Shares of International Consolidated Airlines, which owns Iberia airline, were down 2.6%, in morning trading, while shares of Melia Hotels, whose largest market is Spain, were down 4.7%.
