The rapid advance of the pandemic in the Valencian Community has led the regional Executive to make the decision to completely close the hospitality industry, a sector marked as one of the main points of contagion. This was stated by Fernando Simón, director of CCAES, in his last appearance. “The measure that has had the greatest impact on transmission control has been the restoration closure, although not a very popular measure”.
With a cumulative incidence of 896.12 infections per 100,000 inhabitants (the sixth highest) in the last two weeks, the Generalitat made this decision in order to cut as much as possible of social contacts between people who do not live together. Therefore, once it enters into force, bars, restaurants and cafes will have to close their doors completely, when until now they were allowed to open until 17:00 in the afternoon.
In the next few minutes, the President of the Generalitat, Ximo Puig, will appear to detail this measure along with others that could be established, such as the reduction of hours in commerce and sports activities.

On the other hand, the situation in the health centers of the Valencian Community is beginning to get complicated, with a 37% of the beds occupied by patients with coronavirus, while in the ICU the figure rises to 52%.
