The President of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, will preside this Sunday the meeting of the Advisory Committee on High Impact Public Health Alerts to analyze the evolution of the coronavirus pandemic and decide whether to extend or tighten the restrictions activated in the autonomous community at 0.00 hours on November 10. , and that are in force until 0.00 hours of next Tuesday 24.
Last Tuesday, Minister of the Presidency, Public Administration and Interior and spokesman for the Andalusian Government, Elías Bendodo, confirmed the holding of said meeting this Sunday to decide what to do with the current restrictions based on the approaches of the experts, although he warned that if the curve of infections, hospital admissions and admissions in Intensive Care Units (ICU) it is not reduced, it will be necessary to “continue taking measures, whatever are necessary.”
The president of the Board spoke in that line this past Friday, who pointed out that, with current community data on the evolution of the pandemic, “It is reasonable that mobility is limited” as up to now, and “it does not seem reasonable, with the figures we are dealing with, that we talk about wide mobility”, although it will be seen if there are “important” improvements in any area to allow it.
“You have to see it carefully, rigorously and thinking about the best for Andalusians,” said Juanma Moreno, who stressed that the decisions made this Sunday will be based on the evolution that the pandemic has had in the last 14 days, coinciding with the application of the restrictions announced on November 8, and adhering “to what the experts recommend,” because “they always have the last word and they are the ones who propose,” according to the president.
Moreno has assessed that things “are going reasonably well” and “there is a positive trend” regarding the evolution of the pandemic in Andalusia, with reductions in both the number of hospitalizations and those infected, but has warned that there is still “a strong burden” contagion and a “Significant pressure in ICU beds”.
For his part, the vice-president of the Board and Minister of Tourism, Regeneration, Justice and Local Administration, Juan Marín, also stated this Friday that “it is very likely that we will continue for another fifteen days in the same situation that we have been up to here”, Although he added that it will be seen whether the experts recommend any extension in the opening hours or whether or not something else can be opened in Granada.
