The ‘counselor’ of Health of the Generalitat, Alba Vergés, has accused the Madrid’s community of not having the will to act and has criticized the proposal presented by the Ministry of Health to restrict mobility in municipalities with more than 100,000 inhabitants with more than 500 cases of Covid-19: “It’s wet paper.”
“We do not feel questioned by the document because we act long before the figures that this document expresses,” the minister insisted this Wednesday afternoon from the Parliament after the meeting of the Interterritorial Council of the National Health System (CISNS).
“The document has not caused unanimity or consensus, but it has obtained the necessary support,” explained Vergés after the approval of the document that will be transferred to the Public Health Alerts Report to work on it technically.
Madrid, along with Catalonia, Galicia, Andalusia and Ceuta, has rejected the proposal by which Vergés has classified the meeting as a “circus” because, in his opinion, the main intention of the document was to be able to act when the epidemiological situation is complex like Madrid .
Catalonia takes measures before
The ‘councilor’ has regretted that this document may generate confusion among the population and clash with the measures promoted by Catalonia: “It seems to us that the measures may collide with ours, which are the same, but with very different thresholds “.
In fact, has defended that it should have acted much earlier: “We come again days from a stage full of flags with President Sánchez and President Ayuso saying that they were getting to work and we found ourselves with a meeting that was born expired. We are wasting a few precious days, they should have acted much earlier” .
He has urged citizens to avoid travel to Madrid and to bet on telematic channels whenever possible and has appealed to “responsibility because the necessary agreements are reached” to reduce the mobility of the capital.
