And after that we will continue to work to identify the likelihood of new pandemics that we have a duty to prevent,” said Spanish Prime Minister.
the Decision was approved, said the observers, despite fierce opposition from the conservative people’s party and the movement Vox, who accused the Spanish government of “excessive restriction of liberties”.
