The regional government presented to the Superior Court of Justice of the Canary Islands (TSJC) its request to establish a curfew at alert level 3, said yesterday President Ángel Víctor Torres, who appealed to the responsibility of young people. Torres confirmed that the Governing Council agreement requesting a curfew between 00:30 and 06:00 on the islands at level 3 has been presented to the TSJC, which currently corresponds only to Tenerife. The president noted that the request has been submitted with scientific and legal arguments and data from the municipalities most affected by the pandemic. Now an “express” resolution mechanism will be activated by the TSJC according to which it has three calendar days to issue a resolution that can be appealed, but that Torres trusts that it will be “favorable” to the demand of the regional government. The curfew is an instrument that will help curb infections, and will also occur at night and will not cause an economic impact, he said. It is about avoiding crowds and concentrations of young people because, Torres stressed, the data shows that infections are occurring in the population under 30 years of age and added that now there are two large curves, the 30 to 20 year old and the 20 year old to even 10 years.
The Superior Court of Justice of Valencia yesterday validated the curfew and it has already entered into force in the 32 towns with more than 5,000 inhabitants, where mobility is restricted between 1 and 6 hours.
For its part, Catalonia agreed yesterday that activities, such as restoration or culture, end at 00:30. In addition, he has asked the justice for the endorsement to limit the meetings to ten people, due to the terrible data of the fifth wave and they are studying a new curfew.
In France, for its part, the ‘COVID pass’ was announced yesterday, which will be extended in August to cafes, restaurants, shopping centers, as well as means of transport and medical establishments, while from July 21 this pass can be to be used in «places of leisure and culture», where more than 50 people can gather.
