LA LAGUNA (TENERIFE), Dec. 22 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The President of the Government of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, will request this Wednesday at the Conference of Presidents that the mask be mandatory indoors and outdoors and that the ‘Covid fund’ be maintained in 2022 to cover health spending and the “repercussions economic “derived from the new wave of the pandemic since the Canary Islands is the community most affected by the closure of tourist markets.
In statements to journalists after visiting the Hospital Universitario de Canarias (HUC) he has pointed out that he is also going to propose that a legal framework be articulated for the autonomous communities in order to be able to restrict mobility at night, something that his Executive has already tried in the summer but was rejected by the TSJC.
Torres has specified that he will make contributions in a “constructive” way, underlining that the Conference is positive and a “success” to make decisions on the eve of Christmas and with a sixth wave “that grows” and is leaving “hard moments”.
The president, who has shown his support for the health community of the islands, has acknowledged that he “worries” the sharp increase in infections in the archipelago so he hopes that the courts will agree with the Government with the mandatory use of the ‘certificate Covid ‘.
Along these lines, he has indicated that infections rise every time leisure and mobility increase, so he appealed to the “responsibility” of the population given that “the vaccine provides security but is false” if it is believed “that the Covid is has been”.
“Today it is difficult to bend the curve and the infections are a blow,” he pointed out, but it has affected that five waves have already been overcome and this sixth will also be overcome, evaluating “the tails” that exist to vaccinate the kids.
