The president of the Balearic Government, Francina Armengol, is going to ask Pedro Sánchez that travelers who arrive at the islands from risk areas by COVID-19, both national and international, go through a mandatory quarantine. This is how the newspaper of The vanguard, where they point out that this is one of the different proposals that they will send next week from the regional Executive to the Ministry of Health.
Armengol thus gives in to the demands of Ciudadanos (Cs) Baleares, which this Saturday demanded that the President of the Government request that “real” sanitary control measures be taken at the origin and destination of flights arriving in the Balearic Islands to avoid outbreaks. As reported yesterday in a press release, the deputy and spokesman for Citizen Health in the Balearic Parliament, Juan Manuel Gómez, “we demand that Armengol ask and demand, from Sánchez, real sanitary control measures at the airports of origin and destination of the flights arriving in the Islands to avoid outbreaks of COVID-19 “.
The number of infections in the Balearic Islands barely reaches 100 active cases, but authorities fear that summer tourism to the islands may produce new outbreaks such as those already occurring in Catalonia and Aragon. For this reason, Armengol will also ask the Ministry to resume controls at the entrances to the region, either by boat or at the airport, as well as different sanitary measures in case of suspicion of COVID-19.
