I am afraid we have not seen anything yet. I pray I am wrong. Yes, Spain is next. We in Greece we have 5 deaths and 230 that are infected. This is low numbers because our government seeing what was going on in Italy took strong measures right away however we do not know what tomorrow would bring. God help us.
