Gandia confirms the arrival of tourists and admits that it cannot prevent these trips

Gandia (Valencia) has confirmed an influx of tourists in second residences in the beach area, especially from Madrid, and the City Council acknowledges that "these movements cannot be avoided" but it does remember that health centers should not collapse and that the health recommendation is to call the coronavirus-enabled telephone number in case of presenting symptoms.

Other tourist locations such as Cullera (Valencia) or Benicàssim (Castellón) have also registered in recent days the arrival of apartment owners from other communities, especially families.

The councilor for Health in Gandia, Liduvina Gil, told EFE: "We cannot prevent people from coming because the closure of any autonomous community has not been decreed, but Public Health has made recommendations."

The president of the Valencian Generalitat, Ximo Puig, asked citizens on Thursday night to consider moving to the Valencian Community from other areas of Spain such as Madrid and recalled that, according to the instructions of the health authorities, now "it is not convenient to travel. "

According to Gil, the only thing they can do is remember the recommendations of the health authorities to stay home if symptoms of the coronavirus are noticed and call the enabled phone.

In the health centers of the municipality, the posters that have been hung recall this information, according to Gil, who has pointed out that the system can overflow if the citizens flock to the health centers.

Gandia is a population with fixed tourism of second residences and between the beach and the municipality there is a separation of almost six kilometers, "an advantage" for control policies in this epidemic, he said.

In the town, no positive has been registered in people from other parts of Spain, according to the councilor.
