An area in Spain’s Catalonia region has been plunged into a local coronavirus lockdown amid a new outbreak as thousands of Brits arrive in the country on holiday.
Residents of the Lleida region of Segria have been confined to their homes since midday on Saturday due to a worrying surge in cases that comes amid fears of a second wave of Covid-19.
There were just over 4,000 cases of Covid-19 in Lleida as of Friday, up by 60 from Thursday, according to the Ministry of Health.
Everyone but essential workers will be barred from leaving and entering the region, which is about 100 miles west of Barcelona. There will be a brief grace period allowing residents of the region to return to their homes.
