Coronavirus: Touching moment Spanish take to balconies to applaud health workers

People across Spain paused on Saturday night to give a round of applause for the country's health workers for their handing of the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

At exactly 10 pm local time, millions of self-isolating Spaniards answered calls on social media to lean out windows and balconies to give the country's nurses and doctors a big hand.

Spain remains in lockdown with all but essential movement banned under emergency rules.
