Pedro Sánchez is studying calling an extraordinary council of Ministers this weekend to restore the state of alarm in Spain. This movement occurs after several autonomous communities, some socialists, have asked it throughout the afternoon.
Asturias, Extremadura, La Rioja, Catalonia, Navarra, the Basque Country and Melilla have been the territories that have sent their request this Friday. In addition, Castilla-La Mancha has called an extraordinary meeting tomorrow to study the possibility.
Sánchez has already been willing this morning to take tougher measures because the situation is "serious", although he has left the choice of whether or not to request a state of alarm in the hands of the communities themselves.
Sánchez has estimated the number of infected by the coronavirus at three million so far, and has appealed to limit mobility.
The president has affirmed that the Government is "ready to adopt each and every one of the necessary measures", but that they want to "avoid house confinement at all costs", for which they must be "disciplined" and carry out "new sacrifices ".
