Three Regions in Spain’s Huesca Revert Back to Phase 2 After Experiencing a Dangerous Outbreak

THE province of Huesca in Spain serves as proof that the coronavirus crisis is far from elapsing, as three regions have been sent back into Phase 2 after experiencing a dangerous outbreak.

Although the majority of Spain is currently enjoying their ‘new normality’, the town of Zaidin in Huesca has been forced to enter Phase 2 once again.

The Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, announced that the districts of Bajo Cinca, Cinca, Medio and La Litera are now returning to a set of restrictions which is equivalent to Phase 2 of the de-escalation plan.

The focus of the outbreak was found in a fruit and vegetable farm with seasonal workers which has now had to enforce a temporary suspension of activity.

Illa has announced that he hopes reverting to Phase 2 “will be enough” and that they will be “following up” this dangerous outbreak and that, thankfully, this was “detected very early.”

The potential for more outbreaks to occur is a worrying risk of opening Spain’s borders to international tourism. Germany is also coping with a large outbreak which has resulted in over 1,000 new cases of the virus.
