Catalan leader Quim Torra said the next three weeks — when thousands of workers will return from holidays and children are due to head back to school — will be crucial for reducing Covid-19 transmission.
"No distractions, no deviations and maximum concentration ... because one way or another this country has to get back to work and reopen schools," he told a news conference in Barcelona.
With the start of the school term just weeks away, teachers and parents' associations are angry at the government's lack of a coherent back-to-school plan.
