Castilla y León proposes to the Government to recover the curfew from 1.00 to 6.00 to stop contagion

The Minister of Health of Castilla y León, Verónica Casado, has announced that her government is going to transfer to the Interterritorial Council of the Health System, the recovery of the curfew to reverse the increase in infections in recent weeks, especially among young people from 15 to 29 years old. Casado explained that he has already asked the Minister of Health, Carolina Darias, the implementation of the curfew he claimed. “I did not see his face, but I imagine that his eyes would have surprise,” he ironized.

The community also considers implementing other measures, such as closing nightlife or avoiding celebrations and public events that involve large crowds of people. However, at the moment, the Junta de Castilla y León has not made any decision, in the absence of the meeting with the committee of experts of the president of the Junta, Alfonso Fernández Mañueco.

According to Casado, this committee is divided between implementing “surgical” measures such as the closure of nightlife and other formulas to control crowds, festivities and large bottles in the community; or in a general return to level 2, which would imply a reduction in capacity in all areas, social events and hospitality. The counselor has not ruled out that these measures will be approved throughout this Tuesday or this Wednesday if Mañueco decides to convene an extraordinary Governing Council before the one scheduled for Thursday. “Today we have not been able to make the decision,” he stressed.

The counselor has indicated that she prefers to act in a more surgical way on nightlife and crowds, temporary measures that if they work could prevent the community from passing to level two. If the counselor has abounded in which the actions to avoid infections, which put the lives of many people at risk, including young people, since “out of every thousand infections two will die”, they should be taken for the entire community and not for provincialized form, as on the other hand the previous de-escalation took place.
