Children in Spain finally got to step outside for the first time in 44 days since the coronavirus lockdown. This comes as Spain reported its lowest daily death count in over a month.

Those under 14 years old have been allowed by Spain’s government to leave their homes for one hour of supervised activity per day. They must, however, stay within 1 kilometer of their home.

“This is wonderful! I can’t believe it has been six weeks,” said Susana Sabaté, a mother of 3-year-old twin boys. “My boys are very active. Today when they saw the front door and we gave them their scooters, they were thrilled.”

As the government still maintains rules on social distancing, parks remain closed and children must not play with other kids.

According to Fox News, the nation reported 288 coronavirus deaths on Sunday. This is Spain’s lowest daily death count for coronavirus infections in five weeks.

Officials said that the daily rate of infection fell to 0.8 percent – down from over 20 percent a month before.

Spanish health official Fernando Simón said: “The magnitude of today’s decrease is important. As of tomorrow, our goal is no longer to reach the peak of the contagion curve, we are already there. Now we need to consolidate (our position) and think about how to safely move into the next phase of scaling down our restriction measures.”

CGTN reported that while children can now go outdoors, authorities are still not keen on re-opening schools.
