Spain has declared a state of emergency and ordered its citizens to stay indoors apart from necessary trips, after reporting a sharp rise in coronavirus cases.

Footage published Sunday by BBC News shows eerily deserted Madrid streets policed by drones. The drones are controlled by human officers who relay warnings through them via radio.

In the footage from the Twitter feed below, one officer can be seen relaying a warning from health authorities that people should vacate public parks and return home.
