    Spain’s King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia attend a state memorial ceremony in Madrid to honor the medical staff and those who died during the coronavirus pandemic.

    Spain remains a secure place for tourists to visit, even as a surge in Covid-19 cases triggers a slew of fresh restrictions in travel hotspots such as Catalonia, Tourism Minister Reyes Maroto said.

    “Spain at this time can be considered a safe destination,” Maroto said in a news conference after the government’s weekly cabinet meeting in Madrid.

    She spoke hours after Catalan officials announced plans to slap a 10-person limit on social gatherings and order all non-essential activity to end at 12:30 a.m. as the region takes fresh steps to rein in a jump in infections.

    With other regions including Valencia also imposing new restrictions, France and Germany are among countries that have highlighted the risks of holidaying in Spain with Covid-19 cases on the rise again. While the French health minister later said people “shouldn’t panic,” the warnings are a setback for a Spanish tourism industry that accounts for 12% of the country’s economic output.
