El Pais, a local news outlet, says that a cyberattack on Alliance Healthcare, one of Spain's largest pharmaceutical companies, is slowing down the drug supply chain. Alliance is a company that sells drugs and helps with clinical trials.
The cyber attack started on March 17, and as a result, the company's website, billing systems, and order systems have all been shut down. The company didn't move during the first few days of the attack.
Officials from the company say that when they saw an "interruption" in the system, they took steps to limit the damage. The most important thing is the patients, and the recovery team is working quickly to fix the problem.
