Navarra does not rule out applying restrictions if the spike in infections continues

The Government of Navarra has released its first notice of concern on Wednesday about the increase in infections that the provincial community has been registering in recent weeks and that this Tuesday has reached its maximum peak since the summer with 129 infections. The Executive of María Chivite does not rule out any scenario of short-term restrictions, although it indicates that at present the situation is still “controlled” due to the low occupancy of the hospitals. “If prevention measures are respected, we will be in a scenario like the current one and not in another that forces us to take other types of measures,” said Javier Remírez, vice president and spokesman for the Navarrese Government.

The vice president has not specified what measures the Government could adopt in case the pandemic continues to grow, although he has reiterated that they do not rule out any, including the COVID passport to enter the hospitality premises, as other communities such as Galicia have already applied in the summer. “The fact that concrete measures have not been put on the table right now does not mean that they cannot be assessed, at this time we do not rule out any measure that may be favorable for the control of the pandemic,” he emphasized.
