The Community of Madrid is studying lowering the threshold it uses to impose restrictive measures for mobility and capacity in basic health areas. The Minister of Health, Enrique Ruiz Escudero, explained that the area plans to reduce it to a cumulative incidence of 300 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days (currently it is at 500), now that the incidence in the region stands at 298 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. Escudero has left in the air the closure of the borders of autonomy for the next December bridge, although he has advanced that this Friday they will report on the matter.
The counselor has made a review in the press conference after the Governing Council together with Vice President Ignacio Aguado of the latest epidemiological report of the region. The highest cumulative incidence continues to be between 15 and 29 years of age, but decreases from 435 to 385 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, compared to the previous period, it has had an impact.
Only Collado Villalba is above 400 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days, with respect to municipalities with more than 50,000 inhabitants in the region. Above 300 cases – the new threshold that the Ministry of Health plans to impose to impose restrictions – there are more towns: Arganda del Rey (335.8), Boadilla del Monte (381.2), Colmenar Viejo (388.2) , Fuenlabrada (341.8), Majadahonda (374.5), and San Sebastián de los Reyes (322.6).
In the city of Madrid, no district is already above 400 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days, but six exceed the cumulative incidence above 300: Chamberí (313.8), Ciudad Lineal, (310.3) , Moratalaz (318.7), Puente de Vallecas (316.7), Salamanca (329.2) and Vicálvaro (332.5).
However, mobility and capacity restrictions are carried out by basic health zones, not by municipalities or districts. Currently the Government of the Community of Madrid of Isabel Díaz Ayuso keeps closed 31 basic health zones whose confinement will be reviewed next Friday.
