The project is the result of a collaboration between the MAEC, the CEOE, the Spanish Chamber of Commerce and the Forum of Renowned Spanish Brands. 

The campaign involves prominent Spanish personalities well-known across the world, including racing driver Fernando Alonso, basketball player Pau Gasol, and tennis ace Rafael Nadal. 

Spain was one of the European regions worst hit by coronavirus, recording 27,136 deaths with a few recent outbreaks of the disease around the country since the strict lockdown restrictions were eased.

Yesterday Letizia and King Felipe joined the authorities for a video presentation of the campaign in the auditorium of the Prado National Museum.
