The Secretary of State for Health, Silvia Cazón, said on Wednesday that with “current measures” it is possible to avoid a total confinement like last spring, claiming that there are “intermediate measures” that can be “applied with almost precision surgery “to further prevent the spread of Covid-19.
In an interview in Hoy por Hoy, Cazón also pointed out that they are beginning to see “what the effects of greater mobility and relaxation was” during Christmas, despite the fact that, all the autonomous communities have maintained “a certain degree of confinement.”
When asked about the new British strain, the Secretary of State said that “it is not dominant in Spain” and that the cases found in the country are related to people with ties to the United Kingdom.
For the moment, international organisations recommend strengthening surveillance to identify cases of this variable.
Regarding vaccination, Cazón considers that the rhythm “must improve”, but that the data is beginning to evolve favourably every day due to the “effort that is now being implemented by the autonomous communities “.
