The director of the Center for the Coordination of Health Alerts and Emergencies, Fernando Simón, believes that people who go out to do sports from May 2 should extend the physical distance measure established due to this pandemic, which is between 1.5 and 2 meters.
Simón believes that it must be so because of the effort that is made and that generates more powerful breaths and exhalations and sweat, than when walking, which is usually done also with people who are living in the same family nucleus, where the risk for they are the same whether they are inside or outside your case.
But also, it is not only a matter of increasing more than a meter and a half due to the risk of transmission, but also of “implementing the standard”.
Thus, some of the safety indications that are established, such as the departure of children, are made out of the need for minors to leave, but the problem comes if they go out together with the two parents, since there “has an important weight in the number of people that can go out. “
Simón believes that as mobility opens up, part of the responsibility is transferred to the people who are going to make use of these new rights.
And that is why he has warned that “these new rights are not free.”
“They also have a part of responsibility and duties that must be fulfilled to guarantee that the group is not exposed to unnecessary risks due to practices that may not be very suitable for other population groups,” he concluded.
