Hearse ballet began in front of the ice rink in Madrid, Spain. The place is transformed into a giant morgue watched by soldiers in combination to manage the victims of the Covid-19. After Italy, Spain is the second most affected country in Europe: more than 500 deaths are confirmed in 24 hours, nearly 40,000 cases are recorded in total.
Spanish social workers are sounding the alarm on social networks because they are in dire need of beds, respirators and protective equipment. A nurse rebels against the paper masks that are provided to her. Patients are now being treated at an exhibition center in Madrid, which is intended to accommodate up to 5,000 patients. For less serious cases, hotels are requisitioned, as in Barcelona. The strict confinement imposed for ten days does not seem to curb the contagion, so each healing is celebrated as a victory.
