The final decision of the Ministry of Health on the passage of territorial units to phase 1 of de-escalation It has again raised controversy beyond the long-awaited decision on Madrid. And those that have raised the voice the most have been the autonomies that have also received the refusal to abandon phase 0 in some of their territories. This is the case of Andalusia, the Valencian Community or Castilla-La Mancha, where all of them had requested full passage and have seen their respective petitions cut off. It is no longer that they hope to move to the next situation next week, but that they demand an immediate review by the Government.
In this way, the president of the Andalusian Government, Juanma Moreno, announced this Friday that he will ask the central government to “review” the decision to leave the provinces of Granada and Malaga in full in phase zero, so that As of Monday, they will not be in phase 1 of the lack of confinement, which will be entered by the other six Andalusian provinces. This is how Moreno has pronounced himself, in his Twitter account after the Ministry of Health, in the framework of the meeting of the Inter-territorial Council of the National Health System (SNS) held this Friday, has authorized six of the eight Andalusian provinces ( Almería, Cádiz, Sevilla, Córdoba, Jaén and Huelva) move from next Monday, May 11, to phase 1 of the unconfinement plan designed by the coronavirus crisis, while those of Malaga and Granada will continue for the time being. phase zero, despite the fact that the Board proposed that they move to phase 1, except for certain areas in both very specific provinces.
“The map of Andalusia should be painted in the color of phase 1 (lighter blue)”, according to Moreno, for whom it is difficult to understand that in other communities de-escalation is allowed by health districts and in Andalusia it is not. For this reason, the Chairman of the Board has announced that he will request “that this decision be reviewed” and that “the same criteria be applied to Andalusia as to the others.”
In similar terms, the president of the Valencian Government, Ximo Puig, has expressed himself, asking this Friday the Ministry of Health to review “as soon as possible” his decision that only 10 of the 24 health departments of the community pass next Monday to phase 1 of the de-escalation, a measure that the Valencian Government rejects.
“We do not share the decision of @sanidadgob. We have justified with technical criteria the conditions so that all the Valencian Community should go to Phase 1 to protect Valencian society. We ask that our plan be studied again to review the decision as soon as possible” Puig said in a Twitter message.
A few minutes before, his Minister of Health, also socialist Ana Barceló, showed his rejection of the decision of the department led by Salvador Illa and assured that he does not share “at all” that the Community does not pass entirely to phase 1 of the de-escalation, Despite meeting all the “criteria and technical requirements” of the Ministry, which this week put him for it, has revealed, “honor registration.”
Finally, those who have been most resigned are the La Mancha (another region also governed by the PSOE). The Minister of Health of the Government of Castilla-La Mancha, Jesús Fernández Sanz, has been “moderately satisfied” by the decision of the Ministry of Health that only the provinces of Guadalajara and Cuenca go to phase 1 of de-escalation to Starting next Monday, calling the ministerial position “more conservative” than the initial idea of the autonomous community and trusting that Albacete, Ciudad Real and Toledo will join the next phase, one week late, on Monday, May 18.
