Madrid and Barcelona to finally join Spain in phase 1

The Spanish government have confirmed that the capital city can move into phase 1 with the rest of the country.

Barcelona and Castilla y Leon will also join the city.

Moving into this phase means the cities can relax their lockdown laws.

The announcement was made after a 50% drop in corona death rates in just 24 hours in a hope that the trend continues and that the worst of the pandemic is over.

Social gatherings of up to 10 people will be allowed as well as the re-opening of some establishments such as bars and cafes.

The Ministry of Health for Spain announced the details today saying they are happy the biggest cities in Spain can join other regions in lesser lockdown measures.

The government and regional government have commended health workers on their work the last few months and hope to have shown the world how strong the Spanish health system is.

Spanish Health Minister, Salvador Illa, spoke at a press conference today to pass the news and said that all the provinces of Castilla y León, as well as the metropolitan area of Barcelona and Madrid will move to Phase 1.

He also stated that the regions listed will transition to Phase 2:

Andalusia (with the exception of Málaga and Granada), Castilla-La Mancha (with the exception of Toledo, Albacete and Ciudad Real), Galicia, the Balearic Islands (the island of Formentera moved to Phase 2 last week), the Canary Islands (the islands of La Gomera, La Graciosa and El Hierro are already in this phase), Basque Country, Asturias, Cantabria, Navarre, La Rioja, Aragón, Extremadura, Murcia, and the exclave cities of Ceuta and Melilla.

Golf courses also re-opened across the country today in a bid to welcome back much-needed tourism.
