Totana in Murcia will today revert back to Fase 1 of lockdown after an outbreak in a pub led to 55 new infections.

At least 300 PCR tests have been carried out on punters who went to the Dubai bar between July 10-11.

“The figures are high and will increase dramatically in the coming days,” explained Manuel Villegas, health minister for the Murcia autonomous community.

Villegas explained that entering or exiting the municipality will be prohibited while the Fase 1 restrictions remain in place – except in certain situations.

Entrance into care homes and residences will also be prohibited, alongside the Fase 1 measures that include restricting bar and restaurant terraces to 50% capacity, shops to 30% interior capacity, and determined timetables for age groups to be able to exercise outdoors.

The lockdown will be implemented this afternoon/ evening as soon as the decree is published in Murcia’s regional bulletin, el BORM.

“The monitoring committee of the covid took restrictive measures to stay one step ahead of the pandemic. There are people who find it difficult to understand that we are all together in this. A few put us all at risk,” he said.
