A recent study carried out by the CIS, Spain's sociological research centre, has revealed that nearly two-thirds of people in Spain think that the authorities should be taking a harder line in its fight against coronavirus.

In a survey 62% said they were in favour of "more demanding control and isolation measures".

Just under 95% of those surveyed said that they were worried or very worried about the virus, despite Spain having got over the first wave of the infection.

Nearly 80% said they thought the consequences of the pandemic would be "very serious".
