The President of the Government has stressed that "the next few months will be decisive" to bend the contagion curve of this second wave of the pandemic, and has indicated that the vaccination plan is guided by "equality".
Regarding the outbreak of the pandemic, Sánchez said that "it was terrible news that came when the Government was starting to walk. We have made very difficult decisions in record time."

And we know what the opposition did: they voted against the state of alarm, took decisions to Europe, ignored calls for unity and responded with more destructive attacks," Sánchez criticized. In his opinion "there is no such case in Europe." "When this is over we will have to ask where each one was," he stressed.
