Spain Overtakes Britain for Most COVID-19 Cases in Europe - Voice of America

More than 20 million cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed worldwide as of Monday night, and Spain has overtaken Britain for the highest number of cases in Western Europe.  Partly to blame, some Spanish health experts say, is that the government doesn’t have enough qualified contract tracers.   “Some regions have not understood that this was the key in the months after the lockdown and in the long term,” said Ildefonso Hernandez Aguado, a public health professor at Alicante’s Miguel Hernandez University.   He also blamed Spanish society for its eagerness to celebrate holidays and other events with

MADRID (AP) — Two members of Atlético Madrid's group set to travel to Portugal for the Champions League quarterfinals tested positive for the coronavirus on Sunday. It's the first pandemic-related setback among clubs participating in the final stage of Europe's top club competition. The last eight will begin in Lisbon on Wednesday amid tight health safety protocols to prevent a coronavirus outbreak from derailing the competition’s finale. The semifinals and Aug. 23 final will also be played in Lisbon. No other clubs involved in the quarterfinals have reported positive tests among its players recently. The Spanish club did not name those who tested positive and did not say if a player was involved. It said it immediately informed health authorities in Spain and Portugal about the positive results, as well as UEFA and other soccer bodies in both countries. It said in a statement that the entire group that was set to go to Lisbon will be tested again before the team can travel, and that the team's schedule is being altered to allow the new tests. Atlético is set to face Leipzig on Thursday in the last eight. The quarterfinals start on Wednesday with Atalanta facing Paris Saint-Germain.

Wild end to Spain's 2nd division 'virus' match 3 weeks later - San Francisco Chronicle

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — The match that caused chaos in Spain’s second division after being suspended because of a coronavirus outbreak on one team was decided by a stoppage-time penalty on Friday. The spot kick scored five minutes into injury time by Claudio Beauvue gave Deportivo La Coruña a 2-1 comeback win over Fuenlabrada. The outcome meant nothing to the relegated Deportivo, but it did quash Fuenlabrada's bid to make the promotion playoffs while ensuring Elche clinched a spot in the fight for the top-flight. The match was finally played almost three weeks after it was suspended when some Fuenlabrada players tested positive for COVID-19 hours before they were due to play at Deportivo. The outbreak spread among Fuenlabrada’s players who had traveled from their home in Madrid to northwest A Coruña for the July 20 match and were stuck in confinement in a hotel for two weeks. One player needed to be hospitalized for several days. The league at one point decided to just cancel the match, but a court overruled that decision and said it must be played, giving new hope to Fuenlabrada to make the playoffs. The postponed match blemished la Liga’s plan to resume the season that was delayed for four months due to the pandemic. While the first division went off without a hitch with players being regularly tested and keeping their social contacts to a minimum as dictated by league guidelines, the suspended match between Fuenlabrada and Deportivo led to complaints by second-division clubs that argued their interests were damaged. Elche complained that it could be the biggest loser of all since it finished just head of Fuenlabrada in sixth place, the last spot of four that earn a playoff berth. Zaragoza, which had already secured a playoff spot, complained this week of the uncertainty caused by the situation that had...
