Meanwhile, the regional government of Andalusia is meeting on the weekend to decide on what steps they will be putting in place to help halt the spread of covid.
Currently, the region has a strict curfew in place between 10pm and 7am.
Non-essential businesses also have to close from 6pm.
The meeting will decide whether the measures have been effective and if they should be extended, eased and toughened.
Businesses in areas like Benidorm have suffered immensely since the pandemic struck at the beginning of the year.

Tourism accounts for over 12 percent of Spain’s annual GDP and 13 percent of its employment.
It’s estimated that around nine out of ten hotels in Benidorm have unfortunately closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
