TAIPEI (The China Post) – Spain became the 4th most virus-infected nation in the world, surpassing S. Korea as the arc of contagion rises. Authorities said the number of infections climbed past 5,700 on Sunday, half of them in the capital, Madrid.

Overall, the normally bustling streets of the country’s two biggest cities were noticeably quieter as the message sank in that social distancing is the only way to stop the pandemic.
