All this in a day in which The Generalitat de Catalunya has announced that it plans to end the district confinement as of Mondays. After a Holy Week in which mobility was allowed throughout the territory – although only in coexistence bubbles – the health authorities again decreed these perimeter closures on April 9, concerned about a possible increase in infections. The will of the Government now, waiting for the Procicat – the committee that manages the pandemic – to give it the final go-ahead on Thursday, is to lift this measure by verifying that the positives have not been triggered in recent weeks, despite that ICUs are still close to 500 admitted.
