The capacity of sporting events will be 100% from 4 March. This has been decided by the Ministry of Health in coordination with the autonomous communities at the meeting of the Inter-territorial Council of the National Health System. They are currently 75% in outdoor enclosures and 50% indoors.
The agreement was concluded following the positive evolution of the epidemiological situation in the country. The coronavirus is giving the first symptoms of remission, with a cumulative incidence that continues to fall and that is close to 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days.
This measure is in addition to the one announced several days ago by the Government on the elimination of the obligatory masks in outdoor areas. Communities are also beginning to relax restrictions.
In Navarre, most measures such as the COVID passport are no longer applied. Catalonia for its part has recovered nightlife and in Galicia restrictions on hospitality have been reduced.
Several days ago the Minister of Health, Carolina Darias, bet on establishing a model of endemic surveillance of the coronavirus. ” The pandemic has more and more endemic characteristics and therefore we have to go to a new model of surveillance,” she added.
In this regard, she also noted the importance of continuing to be immunized to tackle the disease. ” We must vaccinate everyone, but also facilitate the manufacture of vaccines in the corners where it is most difficult, and there Spain has a leading role with the new vaccine Hipra that we are hopeful is the European vaccine that we were all waiting for”.
