Spain joins Austria and Germany, offers assistance to Portugal

(Sharecast News) - Spain has offered to assist Portugal in treating patients ill with Covid-19 given the high caseload in the neighbouring country. That follows similar offers from Austria and Germany albeit with the Spanish advantage of geographical proximity.

Spanish foreign minister, Arancha Gonzalez Laya had reportedly contacted Portugal's ambassador in Madrid to coordinate and offer help "within the means possible".
