Spain to Give Award to Health Workers Who Died of COVID-19

MADRID (Sputnik) - The Spanish government will posthumously award the Grand Cross of the Order of Civil Merit to healthcare workers who fell victim to COVID-19, spokeswoman Isabel Rodriguez said on Tuesday.

The awards would be handed over to the victims’ relatives. Since the onset of the outbreak, more than 100 health workers have died of COVID-19 in Spain.

"The best possible recognition that we could give them is to stay calm, responsible and cautious [in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic]", Rodriguez said.

Speaking of immunisation, she noted that the pace is still sluggish among young people, despite the efforts of autonomous communities.

Spain is currently witnessing a spike in COVID-19 cases among younger people who have not yet been vaccinated.

UK Doctors Slam Government´s Decision to Lift COVID-19 Restrictions

LONDON (Sputnik) – British Medical Association (BMA) council chair Chaand Nagpaul on Tuesday criticized the UK government’s decision to lift all remaining COVID-19 restrictions in England by 19 July, warning that "it makes no sense" to knowingly accept that infections will increase in coming weeks.

"We cannot see any sense in why the government is removing the requirement for people to be protecting one another in a crowded underground train or a bus, or a crowded shop. It makes no sense to be knowingly accepting increasing infections at a time when that infection rise is translating into increased hospitalization", Nagpaul told BBC Breakfast.
