Spain’s Valencian Health Minister, Ana Barceló, warns councils over the urgent need to reduce new coronavirus cases. That could see a new lockdown or curfew regulations applied further
Spain’s Costa Blanca given a severe warning: Thirteen councils on Spain’s Costa Blanca, including Benidorm and Dénia, have been told to take the ‘strictest possible measures’. To stamp down on too many people meeting socially and on illegal drinks parties and not correctly social distancing.
The Health Minister, Ana Barceló, laid down the law in a teleconference with the 13 municipalities.
Additionally, the order came with a very strong hint that if the councils don’t take action, then the regional government will step in. With a tough response which could see a full review and include locking down the regions.
And Barceló made her views strongly and very clearly to council members from Orihuela, Benidorm, Dénia, Ibi, Ondara, La Nucia, Crevillente, Hondón de las Nieves, Pinoso, Callosa de Segura, Benilloba, Banyeres and Villena.
Moreover, the largest number of new confirmed cases over the last two weeks in the 13 areas has been: Dénia With 217 followed by Benidorm on 97 and Orihuela with 81.
Likewise, new cases on the Costa Blanca have reached levels last seen in March. With younger people accounting for the bulk of new infections. As they don’t adhere to social distancing regulations.
Spain’s governments both local and nationally have reportedly always had the date of the 18th September penciled in as a marker in containing the second wave of the Coronavirus.
Also as the date nears next week, it appears the authorities are stepping up the heat. As regulations have not been adhered too and the deadly virus continues to spread on Spain’s Costa Blanca.
