Madrid was isolated for two weeks due to a surge of coronavirus disease

Due to the rapid growth of coronavirus cases, Madrid and nine suburban areas were isolated from the rest of the country.

Strict restrictions came into force on Friday, October 2, reports the Left Bank.

Now only those who have a valid reason can enter Madrid and some parts of its suburbs. The same applies to those who want to leave Madrid. Good reasons include, in particular, trips to work, to hospital, to study, shopping, and the like.

It is planned that the strengthening of anti-epidemic measures will last at least two weeks.

Recall that Madrid was much more severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic than other Spanish cities and became the center of the coronavirus outbreak in Western Europe.

It is impossible to stop the coronavirus COVID-19 in the European Union, as stated the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen.

Earlier we reported that according to the WHO, a mask can be effective only if a number of rules are followed and combined with regular hand treatment. However, due to the loose fit to the face, it only slightly reduces the probability of infection.

Quarantine measures are being strengthened in Poland

The country records a sharp increase in the number of coronavirus patients, and does not plan to close the borders, but wants to introduce point restrictions.

In Poland, starting next week, quarantine in the red and yellow areas will be tightened due to a sharp increase in coronavirus infection. This was stated by a representative of the Polish Ministry of Health Wojciech Andrusiewicz, reports Gazeta.pl on Friday, September 25.

“The Minister of Health will propose restrictions in the red and yellow areas and these restrictions are likely to appear soon. These will be restrictions regarding the possibility of meetings, contacts of people,” said Andrusewicz.

The agency continues to actively consult with experts on the future strategy to combat COVID-19. The quarantine will not be about closing borders but about spot-checking the spread of COVID-19 through restrictions in individual counties.

Andrusiewicz added that in the near future, the number of COVID-19 infections in Poland will increase due to the return of people to the normal rhythm of life after the summer vacations.

On the previous day, it was reported that in Poland, a record number of COVID infections per day. More than 20 thousand tests have been conducted in the country and more than a thousand cases of coronavirus have been detected, 25 people have died.
