The Junta de Castilla y León has confined another municipality of Valladolid that will remain closed from this Tuesday and for 14 days, as announced in the Official Gazette of Castilla y León. It is about San Pedro de Latarce, with just over 500 inhabitants, which “presents an epidemiological situation that evidences the need to adopt preventive measures that affect the mobility and circulation of people as well as the development of various activities that, due to their characteristics, may favor the spread of the virus, in order to avoid the possible uncontrolled spread of COVID-19 and therefore contain what already seems an inescapable community transmission of the pandemic. ” According to data provided by the Board in its Transparency Portal, in San Pedro de Latarce, which belongs to the basic area of Salud Mota del Marqués, the accumulated incidence in the last 14 days is 207 cases per 10,000 inhabitants.
The Ministry of Health supports its decision in the Public Health Law of 1986, in the measures agreed by the Autonomous Government in August to combat the pandemic and in the ministerial order of last September in which three indicators were established for cities of more than 100,000 inhabitants to proceed to confinement (positivity rate higher than 10%, hospital occupancy in the Community of more than 35%, and incidence of more than 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants).
The order that has been published this Tuesday recognizes that “although it is true that the aforementioned measures affect municipalities with more than 100,000 inhabitants, it is no less so that the Ministerial Order itself leaves the Autonomous Communities, in the exercise of their powers, the ability to decide on the measures to be adopted in municipalities with a population of less than 100,000 inhabitants, so it is logical that when such municipalities present epidemiological and sanitary circumstances similar to those contained in the Ministerial Order of September 30 and that involve a situation of high risk of uncontrolled transmission in the affected municipality, the measures to be adopted by the autonomous health authority are the same as those adopted in direct execution of said Ministerial Order “.
