Footage filmed on Tuesday morning at the Spain and France La Junquera-Le Perthus border crossing shows controls carried out by National Police after land borders were closed to prevent the coronavirus from spreading.
The measure, announced on Monday by Spanish Interior Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska, entered into force at midnight and will remain until the end of the state of emergency. It... Еще will only allow the entry into national territory for Spanish citizens, citizens living in Spain, cross-border workers or those who can prove situations of need.
Controls do not affect the transport of goods, nor do they affect personnel or members of diplomatic or consular offices, if they can prove that their movement is linked to the exercise of their public functions.
The latest figures show 9,904 confirmed cases in Spain and 342 deaths.
