Although, for Pedro Sánchez’s executive, this is not an option. Speaking to “Cadena Ser”, Silvia Calzón stressed that “there are intermediate measures which can be adapted to each territory and applied almost with surgical precision”. In addition, he specifically addressed Castilla y León, ensuring that “he was able to combine specific measures to control the situation”.
