The Ministry of Health, led by Fernando Simón, director of the Center for the Coordination of Health Alerts and Emergencies, has announced that they are evaluating the possibility of lower the 40s due to Covid-19 from 14 to 10 days, as a consequence of the new scientific evidence regarding the infectivity phases of those infected.
"The Spanish health authorities are discussing the possibility of unequivocally leaving quarantine and isolation for ten days, and forget about the 14 days ", Simón has notified in the press conference after the update of the data due to coronavirus.
Currently, in Spain it is not necessary to keep mandatory quarantine in the event that the necessary conditions are met, such as test negative on a PCR test at ten days, Fernando Simón has also recalled.
Although, unlike Germany, the medical specialist has closed the door to a even further reduction in insulation, around seven and five days. "The possibility of leaving the quarantine in ten days is being debated, although I believe that reducing it to five or seven days will take longer," said Simón.
