The hilltop fortress town that cut itself off from the world — and coronavirus | CNN

The town of Zahara de la Sierra in Spain was often fought over throughout the centuries. The fortress type town was used to fend off from attackers and can be cut off from the rest of the world. On March 14th, Zahara did just that in order to protect themselves from the coronavirus. All but one of five entrances to the town have been closed since the state of alarm was activated throughout the country. Despite over 100,000 cases being reported throughout the country, Zahara has had zero. The only open entrance is guarded by police officers who disinfect cars, all the way down to having vehicles drive through disinfectant to fully clean the tires. Twice a week the town itself is also completely sanitized, including buildings, homes, and streets.
