    “Moreno again rejects rapid de-escalation. Business owners are getting more and more upset”

    The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, has once again rejected this Wednesday a rapid de-escalation: He admits that “we all want to de-escalate and recover spaces”, but assures that “unfortunately the circumstances are not yet in place” as “some economic sectors are legitimately asking for”.

    This is what the president of the Junta said in statements to journalists after a visit to the improvement works at the San Juan de la Cruz Hospital in Úbeda (Jaén), on a day in which Andalusia has added 1,788 people with positiv coronavirus tests and 77 deceased.

    “We have to be very prudent, we still have the British variant, which is increasingly present in Andalusia and is replacing the Wuhan variant much more quickly and surprisingly than it seemed that we would have,” he stressed.

    This is another hit in the face of all business owners who had hoped that they would soon be allowed to operate their businesses to the full extent in order to ensure the economic survival of their companies.

    The business owners do not understand why an entire economy is being sacrificed when it would be enough to protect the old and the previously ill. “The government is only getting approval for the lockdown from citizens whose financial situation is secure and who do not have to worry,” said the spokesman of a business association, who did not want to be named.
