Ximo Puig asks for a curfew for the Valencian Community

The Generalitat seeks to validate that night mobility is restricted as soon as possible between midnight and 6 in the morning throughout the Community to stop the advance of the coronavirus pandemic, as announced by Ximo Puig just a few minutes ago. “We are not going to delay a necessary decision” to stop the increase in coronavirus cases and arrive with better figures for Christmas, according to Puig “In the next few hours, the Generalitat will make this resolution effective and send it to the Superior Court of Justice of the Community Valenciana for its final validation

The Ministry of Health and Advocacy of the Generalitat is studying a resolution that allows restricting night mobility throughout the Valencian Community from midnight to six in the morning until December 9, as announced this Thursday by the president, Ximo Puig .

In an appearance with the Minister of Health, Ana Barceló, Puig has advanced that the Valencian Government will send that resolution to the Superior Court of Justice of the Community for it to be validated before starting it, something that they intend to be “as soon as possible” , between this Friday and Saturday, before the advance of the coronavirus pandemic.

Puig has ensured that the closure of the hotel trade or other measures that could harm the economic fabric of the Valencian Community has not been considered, he has admitted that the figures of recent weeks have worsened and that it is “urgent” to take measures to “mitigate” the curve of infections and hospital admissions, and has regretted that the Interterritorial Health Council this afternoon did not come out with a unitary position on the figure of the curfew.

The decision comes after a new day in which infections have soared, exceeding a thousand. The Valencian Community has registered 1,060 new coronavirus infections compared to 603 in the last update, and there have been ten deaths -four residents-, 673 discharges and 49 more outbreaks, thirteen of them in the city of València, and the most numerous, with 12 cases, in Quart de Poblet.
