Seems like closing the barn door after the horses got out, i would think the responsible thing to do is have the whole flight of people on quarantine, or have them come back for a re-test in a couple days, and don't just quarantine the 14 lucky ones and call it a day.

If I was King with powers, I would have returned the flight to be quarantined.

No, just joking. It is the locals coming home.

Bad move Madrid
