    Junta de Andalucia might tighten mobility restrictions this Friday

    The Committee of Experts will meet this Friday afternoon and will consider a tightening of mobility restrictions, although for the moment there will not yet be any home confinement, a measure which they believe “should be taken by the Government of the Nation”. This is what the President of the Junta, Juanma Moreno, said during an appearance in the city of Algeciras, where he made it clear that any measure that helps to save lives will be put on the table.

    The President expressed his concern about the rate of infections in Andalusia, particularly in the Campo de Gibraltar area, where cities such as La Línea have suspended all non-essential activities, reaching a rate of 1,770.5 cases per 100,000 inhabitants on Wednesday.

    “We are turning the tap on mobility. In Andalusia we had been preparing for some time and we have increased the number of hospital beds, ICUs, more professionals, more centres will be incorporated but we must be extremely careful and individual responsibility is important”, insisted the President of the Regional Government, who referred to the British strain and the impact it is having on the region and other provinces such as Malaga. “Now the important thing is to prepare for this third wave”, insisted Moreno Bonilla, who pointed out that “control has failed” when it came to stopping the arrival of this new strain.

    “We are in a serious moment and it is easier to catch the disease, so I ask the citizens to take responsibility”, concluded the President of the Junta, who, however, pointed out that for the moment the schools will remain open as he maintained that “we have a protocol that allows us to close classrooms and even schools and it is working fine”.
