The Spanish actor Marc Clotet, the coronavirus pandemic that has turned the world upside down, was caught in his home in Barcelona, from which he has witnessed the fight against the disease in one of the countries most affected by COVID-19.
"The truth is that the situation is complicated and each day that passes does not seem to improve, quite the contrary," says the actor in the soap opera Por amar sin ley. “Spain has already come to occupy the second place of deaths, above China. We are very concerned and the only thing we can do is stay at home and prevent it from spreading further”.
Following orders from the authorities to stay home, the Spaniard has used the time to collaborate with the #Yomecorono initiative that raises funds through the internet to finance the investigation of a vaccine against the virus. In just five days, this campaign has surpassed Joan Manuel Serrat, Paula Echevarría, Sharon Stone and Iván Sánchez, among others.
"Here you are in total confinement, you can only go out to buy food and now they have made it more restrictive: you can only go to one person at a time and you have to take a printed paper and then they can ask you for your purchase ticket," says Clotet.. "[They are} applying many measures that we all have to apply, but it seems that it is not so easy and that it is costing and that is what makes the disease spread at this speed and that we are not able to control it as in China".
In fact, if the instructions are not followed, citizens have to pay large amounts of money. "There are fines ranging from 600 euros ($ 662) to 3,000 euros ($ 3,331) for civil disobedience," he concluded.
