Catalan premier Quim Torra says the region has lifted the state of alarm imposed in mid-March by central authorities

Catalan premier Quim Torra says the region has lifted the state of alarm imposed in mid-March by central authorities.

The move, which became effective at midnight, means that Catalonia as a whole will spend just 24 hours in Phase 3.

Barcelona and its metropolitan area as well as Lleida only entered Phase 3 yesterday morning, while other parts of the northeastern region did so earlier.

Regions in Phase 3 have been granted the power to decide how long this last stage should last before entering “the new normality.”

Galicia was the first region to exit the state of alarm.
