The director of the Center for the Coordination of Health Alerts and Emergencies, Fernando Simón, has warned that if the spread of the virus continues to spread in Madrid, “drastic measures will have to be taken.” The capital has once again become the most neuralgic point of the epidemic and the specialist has not specified what type of restrictions would be more effective if "confinement such as in a town, where it is relatively simple", or something more related "to the internal mobility of people without restricting perimeter mobility ".
The specialist has recognized that the Government of Isabel Díaz Ayuso has proposed to apply "important measures that, progressively, have to take effect." And, furthermore, he has already added "has made efforts to implement some", although they have been abolished by judicial authorities, such as the one that prohibited smoking on the street.
In the aftermath of the usual press conference on the incidence of the virus in the last 24 hours, Simón has warned that things must be done "quickly" in Madrid. "In Madrid it is evolving fast, it has a significant number of cases and things have to be done quickly."
Next, he pointed out that the Ministry of Health "is going to lend a hand in everything that the autonomous community requests" and that they are willing "to collaborate with them in everything in order to control the transmission of the disease," he concluded.
