Spain has allowed employees of some businesses to go to work

Authorities around the world are looking for a balance between quarantine and the resumption of business activity.

Spain is easing some restrictions imposed in connection with the coronavirus: from Monday, employees of industrial enterprises and construction workers can go to work.

In a situation when the virus continues to spread, companies should provide workers with protective equipment and make sure that they observe the recommended distance of two meters from each other.

Spain was among the countries most affected by the coronavirus: more than 165 thousand infections and 17 thousand deaths were recorded here. A significant part of the country has been under quarantine for about a month.

Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said on Sunday that the pandemic is a threat not only because of the impact on health but also on socio-economic terms.

“Therefore, the response requires taking measures not only to prevent infection and restore the health system but also to prevent paralysis and collapse of our economy, which will negatively affect employment in our country,” Sanchez said.
