Spanish court orders doctors be compensated for lack of
Covid PPE

Court rules region of Valencia failed to protect medics in early days of pandemic

Spain’s medical community has scored a victory after a court ordered that a regional government must compensate doctors up to €49,000 (£41,000) each for having to work without personal protective equipment (PPE) during the devastating early months of the pandemic.

The lawsuit brought by a doctor’s union is the first of its kind to be won in Spain, whose health care system was pushed to the brink when Covid-19 first struck.
