The Generalitat Valenciana has increased pressure on Isabel Diaz Ayuso to avoid the displacement of Madrilenians to their second residences in Alicante, Castellón and Valencia during the Easter week. Executive members of Ximo Puig They have come to describe as “unsupportive” the president of the Community of Madrid, whom they accuse of boycotting the agreements within the Interterritorial Health Council.

This body meets on Wednesday to design the plan for de-escalation of restrictions by the coronavirus for Easter with two opposing positions. On the one hand, the one that hoists Ximo Puig, which goes through a perimeter closure of all the autonomies to avoid trips on the occasion of the holidays. On the other, the one who defends Diaz Ayuso, in favor of allowing mobility in the face of the decrease in the cumulative incidence of the coronavirus.

Last week, Puig contacted the presidents of Catalonia, Castilla-La Mancha, Aragon, Murcia and the Balearic Islands to articulate a common front in defense of the restriction of mobility at Easter. In his public statements, the socialist leader expressly referred to the main source market for national tourists: “We await the people of Madrid with open arms but this Easter will not be possible.”

The attitude of the Generalitat has generated the rejection of Hosbec, the main hotel association of the Valencian Community, which understands that the perimeter restrictions feed the specter of “tourismophobia” in general and “madrileñophobia” in particular. The businessmen believe that it would be feasible to host 40,000 visitors in Easter week and they ask for a clear framework to decide the restrictions.

To this day, thecumulative incidence of coronavirus on the Valencian Community stands at 79 infected per 100,000 inhabitants, compared to 149 of the national average and 245 of the Madrid’s community, according to the data provided by the Ministry of Health.

Isabel Diaz Ayuso defends that perimeter closures have not been effective in stopping the transmission of the coronavirus. An attitude that, according to the Valencian Minister of Health, is “unsupportive.”

In an interview with “The vanguard”, Ana Barceló pointed out this Sunday that “Madrid must understand that it is part of the State and therefore should have more flexibility, seeking more agreement than discrepancy” and accused the Ayuso Executive of “retaking an idea of ​​centrality of Spain that does not correspond to the reality”.

The Valencian Government’s criticism of Diaz Ayuso they come from afar. In fact, Ximo Puig has publicly maintained that the Madrid Community’s management model of the coronavirus crisis “does not constitute an example.” Following these statements, the Valencian Community became the epicenter of the third wave of the pandemic in Spain and in the region most affected by the mortality caused by Covid-19, with one in four deaths.

Agreement of “mandatory compliance”

Along these lines, and in the face of the demands of the Valencian tourism sector, the Generalitat has focused on the Madrid president with the aim that the Interterritorial Council on Wednesday agrees to a total closure for the Easter and Easter holidays which, according to stressed this Monday the Minister of Health, Carolina DariasIt would be “mandatory”.
