Description

On December 31, 2019, the first cases of coronavirus were detected in Wuhan, China. Currently there are approximately more than 300,000 people affected by the Coronavirus in the world, with an international reach of more than 150 countries. The death toll has exceeded 7,000 people and the number of coronavirus cases continues to grow alarmingly. For this reason, on 11 March, the WHO classified the outbreak of the new coronavirus COVID-19 as a pandemic.

In Spain, there are already around 30,000 confirmed cases, and became the second European country to report more coronavirus deaths. This has led the Government to declare a state of alarm for the management of the health crisis situation caused by COVID-19.

These weeks are being difficult, the pandemic has shaken and collapsed all social and economic structures, having a great impact on people's lives, mainly that of people in vulnerable situations. In this context, Red Cross reinforces all its response mechanisms to meet the needs caused by the pandemic.
