Spain Seized by Fast-Growing Coronavirus Outbreak

Earlier this month, tens of thousands marched in Spain to commemorate International Women’s Day, defying warnings that such large gatherings could spread the new coronavirus, which had already infected hundreds of people in the Mediterranean country.

Four days later, two government ministers who participated in the march were diagnosed with the virus and the number of known infections in Spain had quintupled to almost 3,000. Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez’s wife, who attended the demonstration, also tested positive.
