‘Individual responsibility is more important than ever’ to avoid resurgence of Covid-19 warns a Costa Blanca mayor

The mayor of Elche has warned: “With the entry into the new normality, individual responsibility is more important than ever.”

Carlos González has warned that, in view of the threat of a possible resurgence, it is absolutely necessary to continue to maintain hygiene measures and social distancing.

He says the time has come to “move forward in the reconstruction of the town and the country” and calls for joint efforts and consensus to get out of the crisis as soon as possible.

“Now Elche is entering the new normality after more than three months of the State of Alarm and individual responsibility is absolutely necessary, because it will depend on it that we don’t take steps backwards in the fight against the coronavirus,” said Gonzalez.

While praising the public and health personnel for their efforts to date, he added: “The virus is still there and we cannot relax. It is absolutely necessary to continue maintaining hygiene measures and social distancing.

“Now the threat is in the resurgence that as we see is occurring in other countries, so we must be extremely careful and rigorous in complying with the recommended measures.”
