Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has been working with his Executive team to come up with a de-escalation plan on how to return to a ‘new normality’ after the quarantine and slowly reopen businesses.
SANCHEZ and his newly founded technical committee for de-escalation have prepared a series of outlined measures which will form the basis of the plan.
The de-escalation phase will not be symmetrical or applied equally to all areas of the country, although the rules and regulations will be set by the central government. Given that the nation has experienced different intensities of the virus across its autonomous communities, these will begin to de-escalate at different rates.
This upcoming transitional phase has been created by analysing the international response to this crisis but always whilst adapting this to Spain’s situation and culture. Sanchez affirms that the only goal of this phase is to return to new normality we find a cure for the coronavirus but only whilst prioritising the stability of Spain’s our health system and the health of its residents.
Results show that we have managed to flatten the curve of the coronavirus infection and will give way to the ability to return to a ‘new normality.’
Sanchez says that this return to normality will be gradual and happen in four phases. Each phase will take at least two weeks to transition to the next one. This is because the coronavirus roughly takes 14 days for symptoms to show and therefore this way we can proceed with caution.
