OPTIMISTIC: Juan Marin hopes to have measures in place for the region to celebrate Semana Santa

THE Junta has declared it has no intention of restricting the entry of visitors to Andalucia

Junta Vice-President, Juan Marin, has said that though he supports the decision by the President of the Government, Pedro Sanchez, to apply the state of alarm, the Junta does not plan to restrict entry of people from other Spanish territories into the Community.


Marin said that the decision by the central government to apply the state of alarm in a bid to stop the spread of COVID-19, was something ‘timely and necessary’.

However, regarding the possible six month extension period of the state of alarm, the Junta Vice-President said it was ‘risky to talk about long periods, without knowing what exactly is going to be voted on in Congress’.

Moreover, Marin said that depending on the evolution of the virus and level of contagion it was better to consider ‘an alternative solution that is not six months’.

The Junta will meet at 18:00 this Monday, for further discussion, where Marin has said that the possibility of restricting entry to Andalucia on forthcoming public holidays ‘is not being considered’, and ‘the important thing is to maintain normality’.

“There are no saturated health services, but a more serious situation could arise if no action is taken”, Marin said, adding: “We have turned a health problem into a political problem, and that should never have happened”.
