The Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, has asked all Madrilenians to reduce "mobility to the maximum" and do "only essential activities", since "the situation is worrying" in the capital. Still, he hopes that the measures taken since this week in Madrid will serve to stop the pandemic.
"There are pressure in hospitals and primary careto. I want to highlight the effort. The focus must be put on stopping the increase in cases. And in the case of Madrid, reduce mobility as much as possible and do only the essential activities, "Illa said this Tuesday during an interview on Cadena Ser.
Therefore, he recommends to the citizens of Madrid that "in these next few days scrupulously respect the measures dictated by the health authorities of the autonomous community and restrict their mobility as much as possible to what is essential and their contacts with the closest group of partners they have ".
Illa stressed that "Madrid has taken important measures. Sánchez and Ayuso strengthened the coordination groups with the working groups. It is important. In combat we have always been together." Therefore, he trusts that "the measurements will serve in Madrid. The important thing is that they have been taken. I will not go in if they have been late. We have to see if more is needed. "
