Spain's measures against coronavirus to be extended beyond 15 days, minister says

MADRID, March 16 (Reuters) - It is “obvious” that measures imposed to restrict the spread of coronavirus in Spain will have to be extended beyond the planned 15 day period, Transport Minister Jose Luis Abalos said in an interview with national radio RNE on Monday.

Abalos said there was no fixed calendar but that a 15-day state of emergency would not be sufficient to win the battle against the virus. (Reporting by Emma Pinedo; Writing by Nathan Allen Editing by Ingrid Melander)
