We issued a seal in recognition of Operation Balmis, deployed by the Ministry of Defense, to fight the spread of the coronavirus.
The military in charge of this operation went out to disinfect the streets, reinforce the State Security Forces and Corps and transfer the sick and deceased among many other tasks.
We must not forget the great achievement obtained in the planning and installation of field hospitals in Ifema, Alcalá de Henares, October 12 in Madrid; emergency camps in FIRA in Barcelona, León, Cádiz, San Fernando, Ceuta and Las Palmas, as well as the distribution of food.
This military operation was named "Operation Balmis", in honor of the Spanish military doctor Francisco Xavier Balmis, responsible for the expedition that brought the smallpox vaccine to America and the Philippines.

What is a block sheet, and how is it different from a normal seal?
Taking into account that the normal seal has only the surface occupied by the seal, the block sheet is an illustrated surface where one or more seals can appear, so its dimension will be larger, occupying that of the seal and the rest of the sheet and, their sizes and shapes can be very varied.
A curious fact that also differentiates the seal and the block sheet, is that in the first one live characters cannot appear, but in the environment of the seal in the block sheet yes.
