Spain tells millions to stay home as coronavirus cases rise

Four million residents of Barcelona have been urged to stay at home as virus cases rise, while EU leaders were set to meet again in Brussels Saturday, seeking to rescue Europe’s economy from the ravages of the pandemic.

Spain’s Covid-19 death toll of 28,400 is one of Europe’s worst and the country has identified more than 150 new virus clusters across the country.

Barcelona, one of Europe’s most visited cities, warned of a potential return to lockdown as EU leaders met and as India became the third country to record one million cases after the United States and Brazil.

“With all this news there will only be cancellations,” Joan Bernat, a 46-year-old restaurateur in the city told AFP.
