    ^For the time being, we are only on alert state, which means citizens can still legally go out. Given that the people are adhering to social distancing norms, our president is not going to declare state of emergency yet. But if it becomes aparent that that state of emergency will indeed need, that will happen.

    In Madrid, only first need stores are opened, no bars, no restaurants and you have to justify why you go out. We have to stay at home, allowed out only to buy food and medicine or travel to work, health centres or banks. Travel is also allowed for those looking after the elderly or dependents.And from now on those breaking the lockdown will face fines between 100 and 600000 euros.

    ^I am also alarmed by the behaviour of some people here. For the most part yes, people are respecting social distancing, but then in the middle of the week there were folks that decided to go to the beach, and this friday there were tons of people going out to bars at night. Mayors had to threaten to cut access to beaches, and the goverment had to demand bars to close at 21:00. I find this behaviour even more irresponsible than hoarding toilet paper.

    Children have more homework than ever, technology allows teachers to continue with their work, there are online platforms used by schools like google classroom.

    I’m ashamed of what I’m seeing here, authorities are taking measures because people don’t follow the indications, beaches closed... really? It’s so hard to understand? Stay at home. But when I look through the window I see people jogging or walking, not as many as yesterday, that’s true.

    My gym has set up through their app virtual classes, you can send the videos to the TV

    I hope other countries take the measures before Italy or Spain, learning of our experiences.

    Take care please !!!!

    Looking at what is going on in Italy. This is a catastrophy. I really hope the situation gets better. The rest of Europe should instantly follow the strictest "social distancing" practices.

    Even worse, countries like Sweden refuse to close schools, quoting a small litterature of research claiming that school-children don't contaminate anyone.

    Denmark just closed the borders. Danes abroad can come home, but that is it. They even talk about stopping trains and ferries.

    I don’t understand Spanish government, Madrid is slowly closing, each day new measures, and they allow people to attend a football match in a foreign country when here are cancelled.

    It’s hard to be at home all the time, but we have to do it.

    The difference is that each government handles it in their own way, and in the UK the government has decided not to intervene.

    Here in DK all sports events have been canceled and gatherings with more than 100 are prohibited, and where it's possible people should work from home, and where it's not, staff should be cut back to a minimum.

    I've been asked to self-isolate, as I have travelled recently (airports were strangely half full) and have a cold w. coughing so now I'm waiting for delivery from the on-line supermarket. The first three days were ok, now I would really like to go out for a walk, except of course it's raining

    Hammerfest has been cancelled, Machine Head's European/UK tour has been postponed and for good reasons. However. I'm a Civil Servant and I was due to go to a meeting at the end of March at the Aston Villa Football Stadium where there would have been 300 to 400 attendees and that has been cancelled, but an event at the Birmingham NEC today that had attendees in their thousands went ahead! The UK government will happily let us die. Rant over.

    I’m sure it does not change anything, they can’t control distance between people.

    Yelmo cinemas has reduce the capacity of their cinemas to a third to comply security limits, there the distance between people is controlled, but I wouldn’t go anyway, you don’t know who was there before and even with the new cleaning measures, I wouldn’t feel secure.

    Their work around was to give 2 concerts in the same day with half the crowd each time to comply with the health guidelines. I still think it is bullshit and irresponsible. They should have cancelled the concerts, period.

    Yeah, I did wonder about that, last weekend all football matches here were played without spectators!
    Here Simple Minds played two shows last night instead of one, but next week that will be forbidden.
