Spain has locked down another area after an outbreak of coronavirus was detected, putting 70,000 more people under restrictions until at least next weekend.
In the US, new case numbers have dropped under 50,000 for the first time in four days but there are fears of surges in infections coming from Independence Day celebrations.
Spain imposes second local lockdown in two days
The north-western Spanish region of Galicia has imposed restrictions on about 70,000 people following an outbreak, a day after Catalonia also introduced a local lockdown to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
People living in A Marina along Spain’s northern coast in the region of Lugo will not be able to leave the area from midnight on Sunday (local time) until Friday.
The regional Government said people will be allowed to move around A Marina but only those who need to travel for work will be allowed to leave or enter the area.
The biggest outbreaks have been linked to bars in the area.
Capacity in bars and restaurants will be reduced to 50 per cent and people will have to wear a face mask, even if outdoors on beaches or at swimming pools.
