The Spaniard relentlessly celebrated the end of the six-month blockade yesterday, ignoring too many suggestions about wearing masks or keeping distance. The leading Spanish epidemiologist warned her compatriots that the pandemic is not over.
The president of the Spanish Society of Epidemiology, Elena Vanessa Martinez (Elena Vanessa Martinez) warned in a statement in the Daily Daily that there are still many people who can spread the virus and pointed out more exposure Can cause more infections.
Martinez said: “In this case, I am worried that declaring a state of emergency and curfew will create a false sense of security.”
On Sunday, Spain lifted most restrictions, including a nationwide curfew. As a result, most cities and regions in Spain lifted the ban on night movement, but it is still effective in some places.
Again, travel and family visits in Spain are allowed.
“I can finally visit my son, my wife and grandson in Cadiz,” said 82-year-old widow Asuncion.
Spain’s center-left government also called for caution. Deputy Prime Minister Carmen Calvo said on Saturday: “The pandemic is not over yet.”
Officials worry that this situation may happen again last year. In June last year, the government announced the “new normal” and many restrictions were relaxed. However, by November, the number of infected people had increased sharply and a state of emergency had to be imposed. This was the legal basis for imposing restrictions.
After the state of emergency (and therefore the curfew) ended at midnight on Saturday, thousands of young people took to the streets of cities such as Madrid, Barcelona and Bilbao, drinking all night. The Madrid city police had to disperse the crowd from Puerta del Sol, Madrid’s main square. Up to now, they have been allowed to be on the street until 11pm, with a maximum of six people together, otherwise they will be fined.
Since the Spanish pandemic began, 3.5 million people have been infected and 78,800 of them have died.
