A RECORD daily figure for COVID-19 infections in the Valencian Community is forcing the regional government to look at fresh counter-measures, short of introducing home confinements.
The Valencian Community logged 2,341 coronavirus cases last night(November 10), with 39 deaths.
That was the largest single day of cases during the pandemic.
The regional border closure is set to be extended beyond November 13 and reports suggest that the government is looking at starting the night curfew an hour earlier at 11.00pm.
That means another hour of trade disappearing for hard-pressed bars and restaurants, but regional restrictions are far more generous than other areas, which have seen enforced closures across Spain.
Regional Health Minister, Ana Barcelo pleaded with residents to follow the current measures including mask-wearing and not to meet in groups of more than six.
“We don’t want to go to the last resort and impose home isolation rules,” she warned.
The government plans to extend municipality border confinements currently running in Elda and Petrer, with other towns and cities with high infection rates set to join them.
