Euskadi warns of a rise in the incidence of COVID-19 and will continue to not allow eating in football or in the cinema
The counselor-spokesman of the Basque Government, Bingen Zupiria, has warned this Tuesday to questions from the media that for a week "the number of infections and the accumulated incidence" of COVID-19 in the Basque Country has been increasing. It is something that was already appreciated in the weekly epidemiological report made public this Monday, although he has clarified that it has not yet been reflected in a greater number of admissions in the plant or in the ICU. At the same time, Zupiria has lamented that in a context in which one can "lead an almost normal life" there are "basic" measures that are flagrantly being breached, particularly the continued use of masks in open spaces when there are no distances.
"The basic sanitary norms that are necessary to follow safely are not being fulfilled. There are agglomerations in which the use of the mask is dispensed with," emphasized Zupiria. And he has given as an example what happens in sports venues. The consumption of food is not allowed and it is common that there are dozens of people eating sandwiches in the stands. He has not clarified, yes, what the authorities are doing to comply with their own rules and has said that it is a responsibility shared with the organizers of the events and with the spectators themselves.
