SPANISH experts warn of a third Covid wave after Christmas if official advice is not followed
Health experts in Alicante have warned that if citizens fail to comply with safety measures during the festive season there is a real possibility that Spain could see a third coronavirus wave in January and February, and even the delivery of Covid-19 vaccines could be jeopardised.
The president of the Official College of Physicians of Alicante, Maria Isabel Moya said that over the Christmas holidays people must comply with the maximum number guidelines and avoid “risky parties” as “they cannot be an exception.” She added that it is not so much about a specific number of people, but rather of complying with all safety measures, such as wearing masks, using hand sanitizer frequently and socially distancing.
Professor of Community Nursing at the University of Alicante, José Ramón Martínez Riera, explained that the measures are essential and that we cannot let down out guard at what could well turn out to be a critical time for the country.
