Doctors in Spain have demanded action after authorities reported 14% of the country’s nearly 40,000 coronavirus infections are among health workers.

A doctors’ union says it has filed a lawsuit calling for protective equipment within 24 hours, while nursing union SATSE says Madrid’s hospitals are on “the verge of collapse” and need urgent support.
