      Please also add that the out break in Malaga was a group of immigrants trying to get into Spain illegally,
      Also that they were found to be infected with the virus after being checked at the Red Cross center.
      Please report the full facts as the negativity does not help the image or the workers in hospitality of Malaga or surrounding areas.
