Spain to declare state of emergency over coronavirus: La Sexta TV

MADRID (Reuters) - Spain’s government will on Friday declare a state of emergency over the coronavirus outbreak, La Sexta television said.

The so-called “state of alert” that La Sexta said the government would announce is the first of three stages of a state of emergency.

It lasts 15 days and would allow the government to take wide-ranging measures including confining people or ordering evacuations.
