Sánchez will appear in Moncloa to report the decree of the state of alarm

The Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, will appear at the Moncloa Palace from 2:00 p.m. on Saturday to report the details of the state of alarm statement announced yesterday by the Executive.

Sánchez's institutional intervention, which will be followed by a telematic press conference, will take place at the end of an extraordinary Council of Ministers that has begun after 10:30 am to approve the specific measures that will be applied when the state of alarm is decreed in Spain to try to contain the coronavirus pandemic.

The Council meeting at this time is face-to-face and is attended by all cabinet ministers except Irene Montero and Carolina Darias, who tested positive for COVID-19, as reported by sources in Moncloa.

The state of alarm could allow the Government, among other actions, to limit the movements of people or intervene "premises of any nature" such as private hospitals. For this, it can use the Army and the State Security Forces and Corps.
