New Year’s Eve comes at a time when the contagions of Covid-19 continue to rise and it doesn’t look like it’s going to descend the curve quickly. That is why many communities have decided to take Covid-19 restrictions in order to stop macrooutbreaks of contagion on the last night of the year.
However, there are 4 communities that will celebrate New Year’s Eve without restrictions: Castilla-La Mancha, Madrid, Extremadura and Castilla y León. The rest, on the other hand, will do so with limitations in capacity, schedules, mobility and the closure of night leisure. This is a new strategy that aims to curb the tsunami of contagion of the omni variant of the Covid-19.
Madrid, Castile-La Mancha, Castile-Leon and Extremadura are the four autonomous communities which, for the moment, have decided to exclude the application of additional restrictions due to the increase in the contagion of coronavirus, which means that at least 12 million Spaniards, 25% of the population, will live New Year’s Eve without restrictions.
This is the second New Year’s Eve conditioned by the Covid-19 pandemic. It comes at a time when Spain once again has the obligatory mask in the outdoor spaces, after a record number of infections have been recorded for almost a week, the highest being last Thursday, December 30, with 161,688.
