GRANADA towns where de-escalation will only last two days, before borders and potentially non-essential businesses have to close again.

This Monday Granada saw 11 municipalities able to lift the perimeter closures on towns and a further four towns were able to reopen businesses classed as non-essential, as detailed by the Territorial Committee for High Impact Public Health Alerts.

For these towns the relaxation of the restrictions will be extremely short lived as the Junta de Andalucia data published on Monday shows that five of the Granada municipalities will be restricted again within a matter of hours, due to the rise in the number of cases. This means that they will see perimeters closing again and depending on the rate, their bars will close too.

The size of these towns means that only a few inhabitants becoming ill and testing positive for the coronavirus causes the rates to climb sharply. One town mayor has called the system “absurd and unfair.”

Morelábor is one of the Granada towns where the de-escalation will only last 48 hours. The restrictions were lessened on Monday, but the rate of coronavirus cases in the town on Monday came in at over 1000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, which means both the perimeters will close and bars too.

Miguel Sánchez, Mayor of Morelábor has spoken out say how hard the system is to work with and that they need to permanently be following the number of cases, as due to the size of the town a couple of positive cases can change everything. The mayor said, “We have left confinement today and we will have to return in two days.”
