Spain is suffering at present a pandemic, something that has not happened since more than a century ago.  All countries are implementing programs of social distancing in order to flatten the curve of incidence and  narrow the gap between medical need and the available supply of treatments. However, it is anticipated that  the incidence will be high and priorities will have to be established by means of triage within ethical limits.
