This post was written a few days before the state of alarm was actually reinstated. I have attempted to include the latest information in this fast-developing situation.
I am now more convinced than ever that when it comes to handling the coronavirus pandemic in Spain, it is a case of the blind leading the blind, and Valencia is collateral damage in this showdown. I do not envy the decision-makers as it seems like a case of you’re damned if you do, and damned if you don’t. From the looks of things, it’s looking more and more as if we’re headed towards a “new” state of alarm, as in lockdown, despite the promises of no further lockdowns from just a few short weeks ago.
