Spain is set to enter another State Of Emergency tomorrow (Sunday) at regions request
Spanish regions are urging the central government to take measures that would give them legal backing to impose curfews as the country battles a resurgent coronavirus epidemic.
As of Saturday, 10 of Spain’s 17 regions, including Valencia, Asturias, Castilla-La Mancha and the Basque Country, had called on the government to decree a state of emergency, which would allow regions to limit people’s movement.
Regions expect the government to call an extraordinary Council of Ministers on Sunday to approve the measure which is expected to be passed.
Although this doesn’t mean the whole country will enter a full lockdown as seen earlier in the year across Spain.
It appears curfews are the new thinking with extra regulations also set to be applied when residents are out of their homes.
Some of the suggestions involve again face masks having to been at all times, even in public places when sat at a table unless taking a sip of a drink or eating a meal.
Spain has recorded the highest number of COVID-19 infections in Western Europe. Total cases rose to 1,046,132 on Friday, while the death toll is nearing 38,000.
