Spain's govt urges caution as COVID-19 curfew ends

The Spanish government advised on Monday the public to maintain responsibility and caution following the lifting of the curfew the country imposed in late October to contain the spread of COVID-19.

"The end of the state of emergency does not mean the end of restrictions – far from it. The virus threat still exists," Justice Minister Juan Carlos Campo told El Pais. "That's why the authorities will continue to take action, and the public must keep on behaving responsibly."

Campo's remarks come after thousands of people gathered in public places the previous night and partied to celebrate the end of the curfew.
