Spain is to halt all "non-essential" economic activity for two weeks to try to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez announced Saturday.

"All workers in non-essential economic activities must stay at home for two weeks," said Sanchez. This measure in Spain, which has the second highest death toll from the virus, follows a similar move in Italy, which has the highest toll.
