Health Minister Salvador Illa has warned that “there are tough weeks up ahead for Madrid,” and said that “it is necessary to act resolutely to take control of the pandemic in the region.”

Regional premier Isabel Díaz Ayuso, of the Popular Party (PP), is expected to announce new restrictions today that will affect areas with a high coronavirus incidence. 

For now, however, according to the Madrid justice chief, Enrique López, a region-wide confinement is being ruled out.

The Madrid region continues to have the highest number of new cases with 754 per 100,000 inhabitants, much higher than the national average.
