  • Around 2,000 workers, including firefighters and cleaners, are included in the initiative

Marbella town hall has started testing around 2,000 key municipal workers for coronavirus using fast test kits.

"The idea is to find out who might be a symptom-free carrier and who might have already had the illness," said the mayor Ángeles Muñoz.

The tests, which involve a finger prick and produce results in minutes, are being carried out in collaboration with the private health centre Helicópteros Sanitarios.

Firefighters, cleaners and gardeners are among the operatives being tested for the virus.
