Spain on Sunday declared a national state of emergency and curfew in order to beat back a COVID-19 resurgence in Europe — while Italy also imposed its toughest measures since its national lockdown.

Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez announced the curfew from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. will go into effect Sunday on the mainland and likely last six months in order to combat the second wave of the virus.

“The reality is that Europe and Spain are immersed in a second wave of the pandemic,” Sánchez said in a nationwide address. “The situation we are living in is extreme.”

The curfew does not apply to people who are commuting to work, buying medicine, and caring for elderly and young family members, he said.
