The Canary Islands demand extraordinary measures if the state of alarm not renewed
The president of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, has asked the Government of Spain to implement extraordinary measures in the archipelago, which are allowed by law, if the state of alarm finally ends on May 9th.
This has been reported in response to a question from the spokesman for Nueva Canarias, Luis Campos, about the position of the Canarian Government before the announcement of the end of the state of alarm by the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez.
Ángel Víctor Torres indicated that, among these extraordinary measures, controls in ports and airports must be mandatory, there must be mechanisms to control the meeting of groups, both in public and private spaces, as well as the need to have a test PCR or negative antigen test to travel between islands.
For his part, Luis Campos considered it a mistake to raise the state of alarm because "we are 90 days away from achieving collective immunity in the Canary Islands, after a very tough process in which we have renounced plots of individual and collective freedom."
