The Vice President of the Community of Madrid, Ignacio Aguado, has pointed out that regardless of the measures adopted by the EU to open its borders in July, Spain should take “serious” measures at the Madrid-Barajas Adolfo Suárez airport.
The states of the European Union have completed the list of countries considered “safe” to which their borders will reopen from July, closed since mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking to the media on Tuesday after a visit to the Barceló Market, Aguado has insisted that the Madrid airport was the “main collector” of the coronavirus in Spain in March, and has said that it is “striking” that the state government is not acting “more forcefully in this regard.
Aguado has said that the triple control for the entry of international travelers that the central government established when the borders to the countries of the Community and the Schengen area were reopened do not seem the most reasonable to try to avoid a new outbreak.
“That is why we insist that the Government has to take measures and we are waiting to know which countries will finally be able to have access to the EU, to know what the definitive list is, and then we will continue defending that, regardless of what it decides Europe, at Barajas airport take serious measures, “he said.
In this regard, he has demanded that tests, PCR or rapid tests be carried out in the countries of origin, which, in his opinion, “is what makes the most sense and is common sense.”
