Madrid Grinding Teeth Mostly Locked Again
The Madrid authorities grinding their teeth agree that the Spanish capital must mostly be locked again in the fight against corona.
The Madrid region administration believes that the measures taken by the centre-left Spanish government are going way too far and hurt the economy.
Right-wing regional leader Isabel Diza Ayuso announced that she would go to court.
Until there is a verdict, Madrid is reluctantly executing the lockdown. “We are not rebels,” Ayuso said in the regional parliament.
Madrid is one of the worst affected areas in Spain with a rapidly increasing number of infections. Freedom of movement and social contacts are now further limited.
The Spanish government is also in conflict with some other regions over the correct approach to the corona crisis, such as Catalonia (with Barcelona) and Andalusia.
