World No.2 Rafael Nadal is dejected with how Spain responded to the outbreak of coronavirus. The Spanish star feels that the country did not take adequate preventive measures to combat the pandemic. He also explained what the conditions were like at his place.

 

 
Nadal had a serious conversation with his fellow professionals, Feliciano Lopez, Roberto Bautista Agut, and Pablo Carreno Busta during a live Twitter session organized by the Spanish Tennis Federation on Sunday. The Spaniards touched upon various topics including the heavy losses their country incurred due to the coronavirus.

“We have lived with very unpleasant news” – Rafael Nadal
Nadal explained these are trying times for everyone. After a very difficult month and a half, Spain suffered many irreparable losses. He went on to explicate that the resultant economic crisis will further aggravate the situation. Consequently, the crisis will cause great suffering for the people due to the loss of jobs.

Rafa was left disappointed with Spain’s failure to provide protective equipment for health workers. Ventilators, protective clothing for doctors, and coronavirus tests are still only just being sourced into Spain.

“For a month and a half, we have lived with very unpleasant news. However, the attitude of health personnel has been memorable. The reality is that it is a pity that the means they needed were not available. We have had a very bad time and we have had to take extreme measures because unfortunately, we do not take adequate preventive measures and now what continues to matter is saving lives,” Nadal protested.

“In the big cities, especially in Madrid, it has been a war. In the Balearic Islands, we are less ill. I am living this period with concern and helping as far as I can from my position,” he added.

Spain is one of the worst-hit countries and is one of the major hotspots of the coronavirus pandemic. The country has the world’s highest death toll per capita due to COVID-19. So far, the country has reported more than 226,000 positive cases with the death toll rising to 23,000. Fortunately, the situation is comparatively under control now as the rate of the cases has dropped significantly.
