BILBAO (March 14, 2020) —

La Liga side Athletic Club Bilbao decided it was time to express its gratitude publicly to the medical and healthcare professionals treating patients with the coronavirus. The club thus posted a message of thanks emblazoned across Estadio San Mamés.

The stadium message was part of a nationwide moment of gratitude. Applause rang around Spanish cities at 22:00 CET to pay homage to medical and healthcare professionals all across Spain.

“Thanks for looking after us,” – “Eskerrik asko por cuidarnos, indarra!” (Gracias por cuidarnos, ¡fuerza!) was the message illuminated by the Basque club across the outer part of the stadium in Bilbao.

Over 6,000 people in Spain have been infected by the virus and around 190 have died as a result.
