THE Junta de Andalucia has said measures to fight the coronavirus will be announced on Wednesday.

Regional president Juanma Moreno told press today that a meeting with experts will decide how to implement the curfew imposed by the central government i.e. whether to change the starting or ending time.

The closure of Andalucia’s borders will also be discussed following consultations with neighbouring regions like Extremedura, Murcia and also Madrid, added Moreno.

“The decisions we take must be correct and measured,” Moreno said, “In the coming days, we will be watching carefully the evolution of the virus, always alongside experts.

“On Wednesday, we will analyse the figures and take the necessary decisions… I know that sometimes it is difficult to adapt to changes but we must adapt to this scenario.”

Moreno added: “I have given instructions for the committee of experts to meet this afternoon to analyse the procedures and consequences of the new state of alarm in our territory.”

The Partido Popular leader has also requested to the central government that if the state of alarm is to last until May 9 as planned, then so must the ERTE scheme for furloughed workers.

“It has been shown as an effective measure to prevent the labour disaster from getting worse,” he said.
