Looking at christmas
Christmas is a time that keeps the Government and experts on high alert, so the increase in family and social gatherings on these dates could lead to the evolution of the pandemic.
For this reason, the Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, has confirmed that during these holidays there will be “random checks on mobility issues”, although he calls for social responsibility, as he declares: “We we can’t put a policeman in every house, but we can’t.
These controls will be put in place to ensure that the restrictions that Health and CCAA have agreed to deal with the coronavirus are met. These measures include limiting mobility between communities on December 23 and January 6. Then you can only travel to visit your family and loved ones.
However, regions like Murcia and Andalusia will only allow parents to enter at Christmas, considering “parents” “to be an imprecise term”.
