Andalucía Officially Submits Its Request for Costa del Sol’s Malaga and Granada to Join Remaining Provinces in Possible Phase 2 on Monday

The Junta de Anadalucia has officially submitted its proposal to the central government for its entire regional community, including Costa del Sol’s Malaga and Granada who will have only been in Phase 1 for a week, to enter Phase 2 of the de-escalation plan next Monday, May 25.

THIS decision to include Malaga and Granada has been announced by the vice president of the Junta and the councillor for Tourism, Regeneration, Justice and Local Administration, Juan Marin, in a press release with the councillor of Health and Families, Jesus Aguirre, after careful deliberation in a meeting with the Crisis Cabinet dedicated to tackling issues related to the coronavirus.

The vice president has explained that the councillor of Health has sent all the necessary documentation for the proposal which entails all eight of Andalucia’s provinces moving towards the next phase of the de-escalation plan, Phase 2, next Monday.

Marin has defended the decision and proposal advanced by the Andalucian government and bases this on a series of objective criteria and “not on politics.” He expressed that the Andalucian government is “hopeful and confident in that in a week’s time they will not have to go through another rectification again” as was the case with Malaga and Granda passing into Phase 1.

The Junta hopes that the Minister of Health, led by Salvador Illa, “attends to the documentation sent by” Andalucía’s Health Department and that he authorise all provinces in the area to enter Phase 2 next Monday.
