Neighbours, wearing hand-made penitent caps, put out a figure of the Virgin Mary (C) on a rope for a ‘procession’ between their balconies to mark Palm Sunday in the village of Carbajosa de la Sagrada, Spain, 05 April 2020 (issued 06 April 2020).

The Catholic Holy Week, a major event in many parts of Spain, began on 05 April amid the Mediterranean country’s national lockdown due to the pandemic COVID-19 disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus; Spaniards are now facing the 23rd consecutive day of mandatory home confinement.
