As Spain is heading forward in the Corona fight, today, Queen Letizia stepped out for the first public engagement since her Paris visit in March 2020. In the Mid-march, Queen Letizia and King Felipe were tested negative for COVID-19. Since then the Queen has been working from home.
Today, King Felipe and Queen Letizia visited the Headquarters of the Madrid 112 Security and Emergency Agency. The couple visited the agency to learn about the different services, in response to the health crisis caused by the COVID19.
The couple followed all the government instructions during the visit. They were wearing gloves, mask and kept the distance from the staff at the agency.
During the visit, in which they were accompanied by the President of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz-Ayuso, and the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande Marlaska, the Royal Couple presided over the daily meeting held by the 112 operations in the Community of Madrid.
At this meeting, they heard the explanations given by the Minister of Justice, Interior and Victims of the Community of Madrid, Enrique López, as well as the director of the Madrid 112 Security and Emergency Agency, Carlos Novillo, and representatives of the Fire Department of the Community of Madrid, the Municipal Police of the Madrid City Council, the Spanish Red Cross and Civil Protection.
