In Spain, stricter lockdown measures are now in force after Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez met with his cabinet. The meeting comes as Spain reported a new daily record of 838 deaths in the past 24 hours. The prime minister says all non-essential workers will be forced to stay at home for the next two weeks. The workers will still receive their salaries but should make up for these hours when business resumes. Madrid is reinforcing police control after the PM's announcement. Schools, bars, restaurants and shops selling non-essential items have been shut since March 14. Spain is the second worst-hit country in Europe with more than 78,000 infected cases and over 6,500 dead.
