The president of the Junta de Castilla y León, Alfonso Fernández Mañueco, announced that the Community will be confined to the perimeter from Friday at two in the afternoon and at least until November 9, to stop the contagion of COVID-19, The same thing Castilla-La Mancha will do, while Madrid will ask the government to close this next bridge “for days”, because if it does not allow it, it will not be confined.
After meeting in Ávila his counterparts from Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, and from Castilla-La Mancha, Emiliano García Page, Mañueco launched a call for the responsibility of citizens in the coming days to carry out a “smart self-driving”, this which translates into “leaving only the essential and the necessary”.
Mañueco was the first to intervene in this cycle of institutional declarations, without the possibility of questions from the press, so he could not refer to the decision of the Community of Madrid, whose president admitted that he had ” a pledge “to his neighboring communities to close the perimeter during the bridge, but he has not confirmed that he would do so if the central government does not allow him to do so only during the bridge. In fact, Sánchez’s executive has already put the question seriously to him and warned that he will not change the state alarm decree.
The council president called for the increase in infections to be “exponential” in recent days, as it translates into the deaths of more people and an increase in the workload of health workers. he defended the adoption of “drastic” and “proportionate” measures.
Mañueco defended the “firmness” of the decisions and the consensus when it came to making them stop the second wave of infections. “The virus does not understand borders, political colors, or ideologies”, he summed up, convinced that it is necessary “to bet on the addition”.
It was followed in the turn of the speech by Castilian-Manchego Emiliano García Pague, who indicated that November is a “different” month in many ways as it is “low season” and allows “on time” for the “high season” which means that Christmas can develop more normally.
He also expressed that he was “scared” by the mobility that can occur on the Todos los Santos Bridge as it can “distort” the tracking systems of every population “with thousands upon thousands of rapid movements.
García Page indicated that they face this measure with “humility” and with the feeling that if something is sinful, it is because it is excessive when taking measures to preserve the health of citizens, everything praising that this type the decisions are taken jointly, speaking between the different communities as did Castilla-La Mancha, Castilla y León and Madrid.
