Spain Takes Extreme COVID Measures

Spain Takes Extreme COVID Measures

( – The news in the US over the last two weeks has been wall-to-wall coverage of the civil unrest. Around the globe, it’s a different story. Many countries are still in a battle against COVID-19 and Spain is one.

On June 9, Health Minister Salvador Illa announced everyone in the country will have to wear face masks and take other measures while they’re in public. The rule will stay in place until they “…permanently defeat the virus.”

While Spain is trying to keep the virus under control, New Zealand announced it has been completely eradicated.

It should be noted that New Zealand is an island country which makes it easier to contain a virus. Regardless, their milestone is one that Spain and even the US can look to for hope. COVID-19 can be eliminated.
