ANT SADURNÍ D'ANOIA, - After lifting a three-month lockdown to mitigate the coronavirus pandemic, Spain’s government is now possibly facing a second wave of infections.

The European Union nation experienced 28,400 Covid-19-related deaths since the start of the Covid-19 outbreak.

When Spain’s government made the call to reopen the economy, Spaniards were encouraged to cautiously resume their lives under “new normality.”

Spaniards were told to wear face masks, wash their hands, and physical distance.

For a moment, the Covid-19 virus seemed to be under control including for Spaniard Emma Gaya who thought the worst of the coronavirus pandemic was behind her.

Outbreaks among farmworkers and young people desperate to resume socializing after being cooped up have spread across northern Spain, spawning what some health officials fear could be the start of a dreaded “second wave" of infections.

“It pains me to think that we could be right back where we were,” Gaya said after getting tested for coronavirus at her local health clinic in Sant Sadurni D’Anoia, a village near Barcelona.

She came in because she had a fever, one of the typical symptoms of Covid-19, along with a dry cough and the loss of a sense of smell.

“I think we had done things well. Now I don’t know if we are doing it well at all. I’m not sure at what point we are safe," Gaya said.

On June 22, the day after Spain ended a national state of emergency and restored free movement around the country, the health ministry registered 125 new cases in 24 hours.
