The coronavirus crisis in the vacation destination Spain has worsened. The Ministry of Health in Madrid yesterday reported 13,393 infections within 24 hours. This means that the nationwide 7-day incidence climbed from 226 to 258 within a single day. It is still mainly young people under 30 who are infected, it said.

Health Minister Carolina Darias expressed optimism, citing vaccination progress, and asserted that the country would soon reduce infection rates again. In addition, hospital numbers were rising at a much lower rate, at least for now. Meanwhile, to curb the spread, Spanish regions are increasingly adopting restrictions.

Catalonia worst affected
Valencia, with the approval of the judiciary, became the first of Spain’s 17 regions to reintroduce a nighttime curfew. The inhabitants of 32 municipalities with particularly bad situation may since yesterday between 1.00 and 6.00 o’clock only with valid reason from the house. Among others, the metropolis of Valencia and well-known seaside resorts such as Benicassim and Gandia are affected. On the Canary Islands, which are also popular with vacationers, the authorities want to decide on an application by the authorities to introduce a nighttime curfew.

However, the situation is currently not as bad as in Catalonia anywhere else in Spain. The 7-day incidence rose to nearly 579 in the popular vacation region on the border with France. To curb the rapidly rising infection figures, the coronavirus hotspot is increasingly restricting nightlife. The government in Barcelona decided that restaurants, bars, cultural and sports venues and all other businesses must close by 0:30 a.m. at the latest.
