THE Junta de Andalucia is meeting with the national Government today in a bid to earn the right to impose home confinements on its hardest hit municipalities.

As well as asking for an 8pm curfew, regional president Juanma Moreno wants to impose a lockdown in towns where the incidence rate of COVID-19 has surpassed 1,000 cases per 1,000 inhabitants.

It comes after the southernmost region saw its deadliest day of the pandemic since December 3 on Tuesday, clocking 67 deaths.

There are currently 141 municipalities which exceed the 1,000 case threshold, with 50 crossing the red line over the weekend.

They must all cease non-essential activity, meaning restaurants, bars, sports clubs and many other businesses must close.

But if the Government in Madrid allow it today, they will soon be subjected to mass home confinement of their populations.
