The Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, has appeared this morning in Congress to request that the state of emergency lasts for a period of six months.

"The government is aware that citizens are tired, but it is not the time to relax measures because very hard months are coming."

The Spanish government announced a nationwide curfew last week and the number of cases of the coronavirus continues to rise. Opposition groups have rounded on the government saying that the six month period is too long and should be reduced.

"Difficult times are ahead". Well if these are difficult times, wait till the virus has been conquered and the scorched economic earth reveals itself. Lets see if we hear a lot from Salvador Illa then. Governing by day, without any vision. How can these people be in such positions?!
