The president of the Generalitat has stated that the processes to approve the certificate in “some specific centres” is, in essence, coming off the back burner. Seemingly due to the following facts…
- Ninety percent of those admitted to the ICU for coronavirus in Valencia have not been vaccinated
- The coronavirus is rampant in the Valencian Community, with the highest number of daily infections in two and a half months.
In a statement to the media, Puig confirmed that work is being carried out to obtain a legal basis to approve the implementation of a covid certificate in the Community, since, he says, “the duty of the Government is to protect the most vulnerable people and those who are aware of the danger of the virus and act with civic respect”.
Although he did not reveal in which “specific centres” it will be compulsory to present an entry covid passport, Puig stressed that “we all know what spaces we are talking about”, referring to closed places where “there is a greater probability of contagion as it is more complicated to wear a mask and respect the safety distance”, although he did not want to specify “until we obtain the legal basis upon which we can verify the action”.
“A call from the heart”…
“To those who have not been vaccinated”
The President of the Generalitat, (re-elected as Secretary General of the PSPV-PSOE at the 14th Congress of the Valencian Socialists held this weekend in Benidorm), made a call “from the heart” to the 500,000 Valencians who have not been vaccinated. “For them, for their families and for all of us, I ask them to go to their vaccination centres or to the points set up in commercial and professional centres.”
As for the main indicators, the cumulative incidence of Covid-19 in the Community has increased by 108 percent, standing at 77 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, since last October 8 declined the vast majority of restrictions on hours and capacity.
UPDATE SUNDAY 21ST NOVEMBER
The president of the Consell, Ximo Puig, confirmed this Sunday that in “the next few days” the Valencian Community will implement the Covid certificate in order to achieve the “maximum security” of people, a scenario that, he reiterated, “passes through the vaccination”.
“I can’t say what day, but in the next few days I will,” said Puig, speaking to the media after attending a concert organized by the Generalitat Valenciana and the Federation of Musical Societies of the Valencian Community (FSMCV), on the date of the implantation of the Covid passport.
