The Government Delegation in Madrid has deployed 5,000 police officers and other security personnel to monitor compliance with anti-Covid measures over the weekend.
THE additional manpower is carrying out controls on roads, buses, railway stations, at Barajas airport and other locations across Madrid.
According to the Delegate, these controls are not only dissuasive, that people who do not comply with restrictions on movement will be fined.
The extra State Security Forces and Bodies will also concentrate on shutting down illegal parties, as they did last night in the districts of Carabanchel, Usera and Chamartin during which more than 100 fines were issued.
Government delegate in Madrid, José Manuel Franco, said the move is about “controlling and making proposals to sanction those irresponsible people who are breaking the rules and putting the health of Madrid at risk”.
Madrid updated its restriction measures yesterday, Friday, November 6, to advise that homes should have no visitors after midnight.
