Spain to close land borders due to COVID-19

The Spanish government announced on Monday it will shut its land borders in an attempt to contain the coronavirus pandemic starting from midnight.

Officials revealed that Spanish citizens and residents, as well as people with special permissions will be allowed to enter the country. However, the air space will, for now, remain completely open.

Two days ago, the country's Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez declared a state of emergency and imposed a nation-wide lockdown in order to reduce the spread of the COVID-19.
