Since the state of alarm was declared in Spain on 14 March, one of the sectors most affected by the pandemic has been the health sector. Rarely does an action elicit unanimous applause from all sectors of Spanish public opinion. The commitment of the Spanish health workers in confronting the bleeding of the COVID-19 has achieved this. However, with more than 35,000 infected and 60 deaths, the health workers are moving from heroes to victims in the fight against the pandemic. At their side, the security forces and the Army have taken the lead in confronting the pandemic from the ground. How far does this sacrifice go, from a legal point of view? Do those who have suffered any damage have the right to be indemnified? The present study aims to glean the answer based on the law, with which it is only intended to sketch a note on a problem that will certainly cause a lot of ink to be spilled.
