Valencia to impose regional curfew as soon as possible

Valencia to impose regional curfew as soon as possible after an announcement made by regional president states he will pursue the measure whether it is introduced at a national level or not.

Ximo Puig, regional president of the Valencian region, is to request the authorisation of the national government to allow the implementation of a local curfew to stem the increase of coronavirus infections.

The order, if approved, would see the local community unable to leave their homes between the hours of midnight and 6am.

Puig has announced that, should the appropriate permissions be passed through the national government then, he intends to implement the curfew as soon as possible to stem the continuing transmission of the coronavirus pandemic.

Since the start of the pandemic, the three provinces of Valencia; Alicante, Castellon and Valencia, have consistently been the areas with some of the lowest ongoing figures across Spain.

On Tuesday, October 20, 1,318 new cases were reported taking the regions overall cases to date up to 51,013. This daily increase caused concern for the local government as it was the highest daily figure to date.

Due to their reasonably low transmission to date, Puig wishes to take decisive action to return the area to a more moderate rate of infection whilst a vaccine is still being developed.
