Really?
From the 22nd march
Gabriel Heras, an intensivist at a hospital in Madrid, warns that a shortage of equipment could force doctors to make difficult decisions. “I read that Italian professionals are saying they are not going to attend to patients over 65, which sounds awful,” he says. “But if you only have one respirator, and you have to choose, we have to prioritize people with the greatest chance of survival. We haven’t reached that point yet, but we could get there and it will be very painful. The system is not going to be able to take in all the cases that are coming in.”

Considering the increase since then id say its very likely Spanish doctors have started prioritising patients for respirators.

Isn't that what you and all of us are really doing 'spamming the forum' as you say, especially for something to do currently. Really 'One' you are contradicting yourself!
