The Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, has stressed that the territorial unit of reference for de-escalation is the province and the island, but has opened the door to study other proposals put forward by the communities, such as Galicia and the Valencian Community.
At the ministerial daily telematic press conference, Illa, who is meeting today with the health advisers at the fourteenth Inter-territorial Health Council, has been asked about the proposals of some communities that the province is not the only territorial measure of de-escalation. .
When answering, he recalled that the Government’s plan contemplates that the autonomies will be able to make different approaches in this regard, but that they will be studied as long as they are supported by technical reasoning and meet the criteria required of the territorial units for the transition plan.
This proposed unit must guarantee the “tightness” of that unit in terms of mobility, but also other epidemiological, health and economic criteria, which must be analyzed.
If these conditions are met, the communities can make the approach that Health will study, because the plan, as Illa has reiterated, “is dynamic and flexible” and allows solutions to be adapted to the different evolution of the phases foreseen in the plan to the epidemiological reality of each territory.
“Anything that enriches the plan will be welcome,” said the minister.
