Spain resonates with applause for healthcare workers
16 March 2020 @ 20:46


AHEAD of the national shutdown to contain the Covid-19 outbreak, a nationwide movement to express heartfelt thanks to the medical staff working round the clock and risking contagion has taken to the streets: Even in back lanes in small towns, at a specific time in the evening, the country goes out onto the balcony to give healthcare workers a round of applause.

The first was on Saturday night at 22.00, but was moved forward to 20.00 on Sunday 'so children could join in'.

In practice, with all schools in Spain now shut for at least the next fortnight, most kids are going to bed at the same time as their parents, as they usually do at weekends and in the holidays.
