Spain slams British & German travel advisories as discriminatory

Spain is outraged to recommendations from UK & Germany that their citizens avoid Spain’s islands and beaches because of a surge in Covid-19 cases. Tourism accounts for 12.3% of Spain’s GDP and 12.7% of jobs and it lost 1mn jobs between Apr & Jun owing to the pandemic. Spain has recorded 278,782 Covid cases and 28,434 deaths, but the infection rate varies widely with Catalonia & Aragon hardest-hit.
