The Catalonian regional government is considering decreeing home confinement on weekends to contain the pandemic of coronavirus that provoked the application of a curfew in almost all Spain.

“It is a scenario that is on the table, because during the weekend is when there is more social interaction,” said regional government spokeswoman Meritxell Budó, when asked about this option in an interview with Catalan public radio.

Contagions have soared recently in this region, in line with what has been recorded in the territory in recent days, when Spain became the first country in the European Union to pass more than one million people infected with covid-19.

On Sunday, the Spanish government decreed a state of alert and imposed a night curfew across the country, with the exception of the Canary Islands.

So far, the decree does not include home confinement such as that implanted in the first wave of the coronavirus and applied during this second wave in countries such as Israel, Ireland, or in the British region of Wales.

“We have to avoid the total confinement of the month of March, unless it is strictly necessary and is the only option. Therefore, we have to be exploring different scenarios, and one of them could be this one,” said the Catalan government spokeswoman. .

In Spain, competences in the health area fall on the governments of the 17 autonomous regions, although the central executive can approve general guidelines such as the night curfew.
