According to the British Sky News, under pressure from the regional government, some parents and teachers, Spain will relax all restrictions on the movement of young people.
For more than a month, as the Spanish government takes steps to increase (but also relax) vaccination strategies against the new coronavirus, Spanish children will be allowed to leave their homes for the first time.
The Spanish Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez, said they would want to keep the emergency until May 9 because our achievements are “inadequate and fragile” so that successes are not affected by the risk of emergency decisions. But he added that from April 27, youth restrictions will all be slightly lower. Sanchez said children would be allowed to “go out for a while”, but specific details still need to be agreed with experts.
Earlier, local governments, parents and other teachers were pressuring the government to relax the borders.
Spain implemented one of the most restrictive measures in Europe in mid-March, allowing people to exit only when necessary. Unlike many countries such as the United Kingdom, outdoor games are not allowed in Spain.
At the same time, the number of new Spanish casualties dropped. Last week’s death toll was 410, down from 565 last Saturday.
In Brazil, hundreds of people take part in demonstrations to combat the deadly plague. On the streets of Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Brasilia, protesters with trucks, cars and motorcycles have been honed with their horns demanding that the governors resign because these restrictions compel many companies to close their doors.
Posonaro has been critical of the “home-based” policies of the regions, and believes that the economic damage may be greater than the damage to disease. The day before the protests, he ousted the Health Minister who had been tightening up isolation measures.
In Pakistan, despite the number of confirmed cases, the government led by Imran Khan succumbed to pressure from the clergy and allowed Muslims across the country to open during Ramadan, but the authorities demanded that ministers maintain a safe distance from the public.
In Japan, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has expanded the country’s emergency situation. Since the first trial in mid-January, the number of confirmed cases in Japan has reached 1,000 in two months. However, in recent weeks, the spread of the virus has accelerated, and in just 10 days, the number of infections has doubled from 5,000.
