THE PRESIDENT of the Malaga Hoteliers Association (Mahos) and the Andalucian employers, Javier Frutos, referred yesterday, June 16, to the extension of at least two weeks in the bulk of the measures in force in Andalucia before advancing in the de-escalation of Covid -19 and stressed that “everything that is not reaching normalcy” affects the sector.
“Undoubtedly everything that is not that extension of time, the sector continues to harm fewer hours of activity,” he said after being questioned by journalists, as reported by La Opinion de Malaga. However, Frutos appreciated that “it is clear that we are on the road to economic reactivation right now”, also pointing out that “infections may not be decreasing at the speed that we would all like.”
He continued, “We all would have liked, which is a request I had through the Andalucian Hospitality Federation, to extend [the schedule] even one more hour”. Frutos concluded, “It has been decided by the Junta to wait, let us be consistent with this decision,” he added, also hoping that in the next few weeks the infections will go down, the vaccination speeding up and “it can be extended for another hour and the sooner we get to the normalcy”.
The Regional Committee of High Impact on Public Health decided before yesterday that the community remain 14 more days in the stabilization phase because the epidemiological situation is not yet favourable to continue advancing in the de-escalation foreseen by the Junta de Andalucia. With this second extension, the intention of the autonomous government to achieve a situation of “normality” by June 21 is far behind.
