More than 70,000 people in Spain's north-western region of Galicia have been put back into an enforced lockdown following several new outbreaks of COVID-19.
Only those travelling for work will be allowed to leave or enter the coastal district of A Marina from midnight on Sunday to Friday.
A day ago, the north-eastern region of Catalonia imposed a similar local lockdown. Nationally, Spain's outbreak has been essentially brought under control.
According to worldometer data, a total of 2,97,625 people have been diagnosed with the coronavirus while 28,385 deaths died. But daily fatalities have been in the single figures for most of the past three weeks.
