Measure sets standard for UK to follow
The Spanish government has issued an emergency decree to take control of all the country’s healthcare facilities – including private hospitals and pharmaceutical manufacture – in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
When the UK is funnelling public money into shareholder pockets to rent private beds for the treatment of coronavirus sufferers, Spain has treated the situation as the emergency that it is, taking all health provision into direct control.
The Spanish government, under its left-wing prime minister, has shown what can be done when those in charge are genuinely determined to do what is needed for the good of the people instead of padding the profits of privateer donors.
