81,000 people have been fined under emergency confinement rules to contain the Covid-19 pandemic in Spain.

Spain’s Minister of the Interior also announced 777 arrests have been made under police powers to enforce obedience to the laws.

All of those arrested have been charged with a crime of disobedience, which carries a hefty fine and a prison sentence up to one year.

Though all police forces across Spain’s autonomous regions are under direct government control, each force will process its own fines.
