Moreno's message: ask to stay home and not meet with friends or family
He affirms that the third wave will be the "hardest, most difficult and complex of those lived until now"
The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, has appealed this Thursday to the "responsibility" of citizens before the "explosive" advance of the third wave of the coronavirus pandemic in the community and has asked the Andalusians "to stay in home to the best of their ability "and try" not to multiply unnecessary social gatherings "or to move encounters with friends or family members who are not living together to their homes.
Moreno has launched this message in the Sevillian town of Mairena del Alcor during his speech at the inauguration of the Center for High Resolution of Specialties (CARE) Los Alcores on the eve of the meeting of the committee of experts that will agree on the tightening of restrictions in Andalusia before the evolution of the third wave of the pandemic, which has anticipated that it will be the "hardest, most difficult and complex of those experienced so far".
Faced with this scenario, the head of the Andalusian Executive has addressed the citizens directly to ask for "responsibility and head in each of our behaviors", for which he has suggested "staying at home as far as possible" and "trying not to multiply unnecessary social gatherings. "
In this sense, Moreno has warned about the need not to turn houses into "mini-restaurants" where to meet friends or relatives who do not live together and has warned that neither the Board nor any administration can "be in the houses or at clandestine parties."
