Spanish father says his entire family, including all ELF children, contracted coronavirus and isolate themselves after his children ‘fell one by one’
- The Cebrian Gervas family has been placed under a strict seal in Valladolid
- All eleven children, aged between one and fifteen, contracted Covid-19
- Doctors warned that their viral load could cause a massive spread if not isolated
An entire Spanish family, including eleven children, has contracted with Coronavirus and is strictly isolated at home.
The Cebrian Gervas family have been forced to lock up in Valladolid in northwestern Spain after each virus was diagnosed.
Mother Irene Gervas was the first in the family to test positive for Covid-19.
Doctors placed the family under strict closure because their viral load means they have an increased risk of hitting others in their hometown of Valladolid
The family said that they entertain their children using technical devices such as laptops and mobile phones and that they are taught at home from Monday to Friday
Father Jose Maria Cebrian told the local media, “The children fell one by one. Some of them got better and some a little worse. Since the virus takes five or six days to appear when you feel bad, you start to remember and think “OK!”
Carmen (15), Fernando (14), Luiz (12), Juan Pablo (11), twins Miguel and Manuel (10), Alvaro (8), Irene (5), Alicia (4), Helena (3), and Jose Maria (1) is now unable to leave their home.

Cebrian added, “In our case they (the kids) are sick one day, they have a headache, they vomit and they feel better after vomiting. They don’t even remember the day after. ‘
The family is severely closed because they can infect others due to the large number of family members under the same roof.
Cebrian added, “The doctor told us that because of the viral load we have, we absolutely have to stay at least another two weeks. If we go out and get it out, we can start a resource in Valladolid. ‘
They have been isolated so far since they tested positive on March 14, the day Spain announced that it would extend its alert condition.
The country has registered over 117,000 coronavirus cases and nearly 11,000 deaths.
Local media said the family relies on relatives and their 14-year-old son to help them deal with the situation.
Their son can only go to the pharmacy if he is wearing a face mask and gloves.
Cebrian also said, “He’s the only one who goes out a bit. I take out the trash and he’s the messenger. When we have our groceries delivered, they leave them in the garage and my son goes downstairs to pick him up.
Local media reported that only the family’s 14-year-old son is allowed to leave the house to go to the pharmacy as long as he wears a face mask and gloves
“Our brothers and sisters are in Valladolid and our loving mothers, the grandmothers, who don’t stop cooking, asking and bringing things.”
The children would be taught home with laptops, tablets and mobile phones.
Jose Maria said, “It’s important that they don’t feel like this is chaos, so they have classes Monday through Friday.”
