VALENCIAN president is looking at legal means for reducing family gatherings to cohabitants only
The President of the Valencian Community, Ximo Puig, has announced on Thursday, January 21 that he plans to exhaust all legal avenues in order to limit family gatherings to cohabitants only as he believes the evidence shows that 60 per cent of coronavirus infections stem from these kinds of social interactions.
As reported by Levante, the president is studying ways to implement the restriction “with maximum legal certainty as part of the idea of limiting the maximum family contact.”
Mr Puig added that “we have to put all the necessary mechanisms to reduce this type of activity,” but acknowledged that it ultimately comes down to individual responsibility as the government cannot put “a policeman in each house.”
The Valencian president, along with 14 other regional heads, were dealt a major blow on Wednesday, January 20, when Minister of Health Salvador Illa refused their request that the state of alarm be altered to allow an extended curfew.
Indeed, the Vice President of the Junta de Andalucía has called on people to remain at home after 8pm despite the fact that this is not an official requirement.
Ximo Puig once again reiterated that the Valencian government “does not share the Government’s decision not to allow a curfew to be advanced. It has been opened via dialogue that we hope will be resolved in the coming days.”
