CORONAVIRUS: Spain’s lockdown leaves beaches & towns totally deserted

Recent images taken from Spain’s webcams from across the country reveal that the State of Emergency rules have left its streets and beaches completely deserted. The streets of Madrid to the beaches of Alicante are now practically people free, as a result of the ‘drastic’ restrictions on its citizens movements to curb the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The country’s National Police, Local Police and Guardia Civil, as well as security guards of private companies, are out in full force patrolling all the country’s roads, public spaces and public transport ensuring that individuals who are outdoors are complying with the restricted movement measures, to buy essential food/medical supplies, go to the bank/work/medical centres, or check in on a ‘vulnerable’ family member who is elderly, or has special needs.

Here are a few pictures of deserted towns and beaches from around the country.
