Passengers with masks were filmed at Madrid's Atocha railway station on Sunday, after Spanish authorities ended the state of emergency prompted by the coronavirus pandemic, and reopened the country's borders to EU and Schengen countries for the first time since the start of the outbreak.
The passengers were filmed walking inside the Atocha station, wearing masks, and being surrounded by screens and posters reminding them of the coronavirus measures.
One of the passengers, Beatriz Perez, said, «Seems like we're going back to normality, but nothing is normal, because you can't event enter the toilets, so... There's no dining car, there's no... anything. It's sad to see everything dismantled, but we have to get used to it. There's no choice. At least we're here.»
Another passenger, Luis Vazquez, said, «Yes, it's different, because everybody's nervous, [wearing] face masks, everybody's scared, [they have a] fear of getting infected... It's something peculiar. Let's hope all this passes and everything goes well.»
Spain has had over 293,000 cases of coronavirus, according to data compiled by the Johns Hopkins University. At least 28,000 people have died with the virus.
