Breaking News – Juanma Moreno considering full Lockdown for Andalucia

The Andalucian president is considering full lockdown as he asks for regulatory changes to the central government to give the autonomous communities the power to advance curfews or confine homes.

Andalucian hospitals continue to fill with patients suffering from Covid-19, 337 had to be hospitalised this Wednesday, November 11.

The authorities, meanwhile, hope that the restrictive measures adopted will take effect.

The president of Andalucia, Juanma Moreno explained in a statement on Wednesday, November 11, 

“I am willing to take the attrition.”

He repeatedly declared to the journalists who asked him at the Torrecárdenas Hospital in Almería.

The Andalucian president has realised that being an authority without being able to lock up in homes, advance curfews or command capacity over a police force is the same as playing house with dolls.

According to Moreno, it would be something that would be discussed in the Interterritorial Council, but the Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, did not confirm such an extreme and only referred to the evaluation of the numbers that will be analysed two or three weeks before of the adoption of new policies. Moreno influenced his intentions and responsibilities.

“In Andalucia, we continue to carry responsibility and wear and tear on our back, but to make certain decisions we have to have all the instruments,” Moreno emphasised before adding that, even understanding that he cannot have command of the forces and bodies of  State security, he does consider that it should be enabled to advance the curfew before 10pm or further tighten the limit of exits from home to the top of confinement.

“I can dictate regulations, but if there are no officers, if it is not protected, what has served for me to confine each and every one of the Andalucian municipalities. I know that you cannot control everything, but the government has to make an effort “

Faced with what may be a more adverse situation of the pandemic, Moreno asked the government of Spain to adopt “the necessary measures and regulatory modifications that are required” to make it possible for the autonomous communities “to partially confine a territory, a province or the whole” of the region. 

“It is clear that Granada could be a candidate for this; if we had that instrument, we would confine ourselves at home,” he said in statements collected by Europa Press.
