Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has warned of a Christmas period tighten up on Coronavirus regulations this morning
The Spanish PM said:
“If the Christmas plan must be toughened, there is no doubt that that is what the Government will advise all regional leaders to do.”
It comes as the latest statistics suggest a reassuring November and the first week of December is being undone following the long bank holiday weekend from December 4 to 8.
“We cannot lower our guard, in recent days we have seen a worrying increase in the number of cases,” Sanchez added, “We need one last effort.” he further added.
Under the current planned regulations, between December 23 and January 6, people in Spain will be allowed to travel to any other region to visit and stay with family.
Although that appears to be up in jeopardy, with Sanchez suggesting that the population will need to make more sacrifices.
“Let’s not throw everything away,” he further added, “It is up to us to make sure there is no third wave.
“We overcame the first wave with a lot of effort and if we do not lower our guard we will overcome this second one.”
The leader made it clear that the Christmas measures, which also include allowing for meetings of up to 10 non-cohabitants, would be up for modification if things don’t improve over the next few days, risking Christmas plans for millions.
He added: “Christmas is a family holiday and one of affection. But the best way to prevent infections is to act as if we are infected. The best gift is safety. Taking care of ourselves keeps us safe… during these holidays it will be decided whether or not we avoid the third wave and successfully vaccinate.”
