The virus is still spreading, hence it is so good the Guardia Civil is out in force again, blocking off roundabouts and checking people. Today saw two roundabouts being blocked off. One of them had 4 GC cars, 10 GC officers, of which two with automatic rifles, standing there ready to shoot. And this at a time people are going home for lunch or just did the school run. Why is this necessary to do it in such a military, dictatorial way?
