Malaga infection rates

Postby olive » Tue Jul 27, 2021 2:42 pm

In http://www.surinenglish.com/local/20210 ... 35208.html

Interesting article in Sur. infection rate in four figures and the authorities are “thinking” about a curfew between 2 am and 7 am.

Wasn’t that long ago that we would have had municipalities closed and non essential businesses closed with figures that high.

What has changed? Protecting tourism? Has the model changed now so many are vaccinated ( Spain has done really really well)? Less deaths?

In May the central government's state of emergency ended and since then there has been a decision by the constitutional court that the original lockdown was unconstitutional. The central government was not prepared to return to the levels of state of emergency from Spring 2020 anyway

The difference now is that, without a change in law, the autonomous regions don't have the authority to impose a lot of the previous restrictions. Even then, when restrictions are imposed, they are contested in the courts and often deemed illegal. For example, the courts here judged that keeping bars closed was not legal but the Basque government could control opening times.

Then we have our own personal takes. Mine is that the central government are looking at what is happening in the UK and seeing that even though hospitals and deaths have risen, they are nowhere near those from previous spikes and would like to get back to some sort of normality, hoping that this time increased infection rates won't translate into high hospital admissions and deaths.

To me all that matters is the hospital intake and andalucia is below the national average. Populations have gone up hugely due to the summer holiday so its to be expected.
