The TSJM revokes the confinement of the ten Madrid municipalities
This same Thursday, Justice has reversed the measures to try to stop the virus that the Ministry of Health had announced. The Superior Court of Justice of Madrid (TSJM) has overturned the perimeter confinement of the ten municipalities of the Community of Madrid, including the capital. Despite this revocation, the restrictions on hours and capacity in hotel establishments and the limitation of a maximum of six people for meetings are still in force.
Given the new situation, the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, has communicated that tomorrow Friday will report on new measures for the region, although he has asked the Madrilenians not to leave the bridge, informs Fátima Caballero. Ayuso has asked the central government for “help” to jointly agree on “sensible and fair” standards.
The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has declared that they will put on the table “all the tools and instruments” to alleviate the virus, among which he has not ruled out a possible application of the alarm state in the Community of Madrid. Although, as he has explained, they will seek to agree on the new restrictions with the regional government.
