Spain closes nightlife to stop COVID-19 infections and follows in the footsteps of Galicia and prohibits smoking on the street

Madrid / The Government and the autonomous communities have unanimously agreed this Friday to close nightclubs, cocktail bars and dance halls in Spain to try to stop the daily increase in COVID-19 cases.

The Interterritorial Council of the National Health System has given its approval to the application, for the first time since the end of the state of alarm, of another ten coordinated actions “for the benefit of all communities,” the Minister of Health explained at a press conference. Health, Salvador Illa.

According to what has been stated by the Spanish Minister of Health, not only is nightlife closed, appealing to the responsibility of young people, among these ten measures smoking in the street is also prohibited if the distance of two cannot be maintained meters between people.

“The best thing, however,” said Minister Illa, “is not to smoke, neither on the street nor at home.”

The Galician community, chaired by the popular Nuñez Feijoo, was the first Spanish community to ban smoking in the street and on terraces -the measure has been in force since Thursday-, followed by the Canary Islands.

The smoking ban was already being studied by the rest of the Spanish autonomous communities.

On August 13, Thursday, the highest number of coronavirus infections were registered in Spain since the end of May: almost 3,000 cases, specifically 2,935, a high figure that includes data from one more day of the Madrid community.

50% of the cases that are occurring in recent days, as explained by epidemiologist Fernando Simón, are of people who do not show symptoms of the virus.

With these latest figures, there are already 337,334 infected in Spain since the start of the pandemic.

The Community of Madrid has dumped 842 new cases in the Health registry in the last 24 hours, but the autonomy that leads the infections, without adding previous days, is the Basque Country, with 545, followed by Aragon, with 418, and now further afield Catalonia, which is doing massive diagnostic tests, with 164, and Galicia with 107.
