After a very strict lockdown in order to fight Covid-19, Spain is gradually returning to the new normality. To come out of the lockdown, Spain has implemented a four-phase plan designed to open up businesses and get people back to work gradually. Additionally, from July, Spain would once more be welcoming back foreign tourists as per the oficial announcement of Spanish prime minister.
Spanish daily newspaper El Pais (The Country) quotes the Socialist Party (PSOE) leader of saying the below to comment on the current situation in Spain:
“The hardest part is over; we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Now the epicenter has moved to other parts of the planet, as is happening, for example, on the American continent. The response of the Spanish people has been formidable. Everyone has fulfilled their mission, and they came together to deal with the epidemic.”
“The first achievement: to flatten the curve,” he continued. “The second achievement: when those who have recovered exceed new infections. The third achievement will be to reduce the spread of the virus as much as possible. Yesterday the reproduction rate was 0.20. Today we can say that we have achieved this not by luck, but with determination. We have taken the correct path. The Spanish people have forced the virus to retreat.”
We are looking forward to welcoming back soon the international tourism to Spain. Safety protocols from the government designed for the protection of our clients, staff members and collaborators, returning towards our business as usual will of course be implemented and followed.
Thank you to everyone for your support and collaboration through these difficult times and our best wishes to you and your families.
We look forward to seeing you soon on the Costa del Sol
