The Minister of Health, Carolina Darias, has stated this Monday that He does not consider it advisable to return the public to the football stadiums in the remainder of the season due to the different epidemiological situation of the autonomous communities.
At a press conference in Oviedo, where he visited the Central University Hospital of Asturias (HUCA), Darias recalled that the cumulative incidence over fourteen days in Spain is in 229 cases for every one hundred thousand inhabitants, but with “a very important variability“between the different autonomous communities. Thus, there are some autonomies with a cumulative incidence below 70 cases, while others are close to 400 and even above 500.
Thus, in response to a question about the possible return of the public to the football stadiums in the final stretch of the season, Darias has considered that “It would not be the same throughout the Spanish territory” and that he does not see it advisable: “What remains of the section I think would not be the most advisable,” he said.
