Spain will reopen its borders to overseas tourists from July and the government will guarantee the safety of visitors and locals, the country’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said.
“We’re sending everyone a message today: Spain will be waiting for you from July,” he said.
He called on Spaniards to begin planning domestic holidays, and he also announced that football leagues would be allowed to resume from 8 June. Sanchez said a 10-day period of national mourning for the victims of the virus would begin on Tuesday.
28,628 people in Spain have died of coronavirus and 234,824 have been infected.
