The new restrictions that Madrid imposes since Monday to combat the advance of COVID-19

Madrid / The Community of Madrid is going to announce this Friday new measures to try to stop the advance of the coronavirus, such as limitations of people in social gatherings, stricter capacity on terraces or wakes, an increase in trackers and more serological tests.

These measures are part of the plan for the ‘return operation’ that the Community of Madrid will implement for fortnights, depending on the epidemiological evolution, and will include, for example, new capacity restrictions, as the regional president, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, advanced on Wednesday.

The plan, according to Ayuso, will include “objective criteria” that allow deciding “objectively, with criteria” and “with time” whether or not public shows can be held.

Medicalized hotels, tests, trackers

Among the measures, he also mentioned the increase in trackers, the strengthening of public transport, carrying out more serological tests or re-enabling medicalized hotels.

For his part, the regional head of Health has expressed to a television the intention of containing the outbreaks in the places where they have detected that they have occurred more frequently: within the family environment, on the terraces, at wakes and in all mass events .

There will be no generalized or perimeter confinement

The announcement of the new measures this Friday coincides with the beginning of the school year in public and subsidized centers of the Community of Madrid, with the incorporation of students from the first cycle of Early Childhood Education.

The Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, sees a generalized confinement of the population as unnecessary at this time, as occurred in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and neither does he see a “perimeter confinement” of Madrid viable due to the increase in infections .

Madrid is the Spanish community that suffers the greatest transmission, to which is added its particular characteristics, with a very high population density and mass media, which all generate “a lot of concern”.

The Community of Madrid has reported 941 cases of coronavirus in the last 24 hours (163 less than on Wednesday) and 23 deaths in Madrid hospitals, two more than those registered the previous day.

To the 941 positives in the last 24 hours, the Community of Madrid now incorporates another 1,918 cases from previous days to the count, so that since the beginning of the pandemic, 137,318 confirmed cases of coronavirus have been detected by PCR, according to the report published by this Thursday the Ministry of Health.

In addition, 15,352 people have lost their lives due to this disease: 9,523 in hospitals, 4,834 in social and health centers, 966 in homes and 29 in other places. (September 3, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
