On foot, on bikes, skateboards, and scooters, children in Spain finally left their homes after six weeks, during which they lived, amidst one of the most stringent public isolation measures in Europe to curb the spread of the new Corona virus.
The easing of restrictions came with Spain, one of the most countries in the world that experienced injuries and deaths with Covid-19, the lowest daily increase in deaths in Corona for more than a month.
The authorities allowed the children to go out in Madrid with wearing masks the first time that those under 14 were allowed to leave their homes since the government declared a state of emergency and suspended most activities on March 14.
Now children can do one hour outdoor activities under the supervision of adults between nine in the morning and nine in the evening around one kilometer from their homes.
Adults can take up to three children but youngsters will not be allowed to use the playgrounds and they must adhere to the Social Divergence Guidelines by staying at least 2 meters away from others.
Schools are still closed.
Spain said that the daily number of deaths related to the Coronavirus has fallen to its lowest level in more than a month, with 288 deaths recorded in the past 24 hours.
This is down from 378 registered yesterday, Saturday, and 367 registered.
The Ministry of Health stated that the number of deaths increased to 23,390.
The total number of injuries jumped to 207,634 from 205,905 cases the previous day.
Spain has the third highest death rate, after the United States and Italy.
