Puig has defended that the Valencian Community “always” has adopted the measures from “serenity and respect” of what the experts have raised and “without taking compulsive measures”. In addition, he recalled that an agreement was reached in the Interterritorial Council last week that “remains in force in all aspects.”
In that sense, asked about the intention of Murcia of not allowing relatives to enter the days indicated at Christmas, has verified that it will mean that Valencians “will not be able to go” as well as “if others open longer, they will not be able to go because they will not be able to leave” the Community. For this reason, he has advocated “clarifying” the measures and making them “the most homogeneous possible “so as not to cause confusion to citizens”.
In any case, he has insisted that the restrictions that have been adopted are intended to “preserve all that has been advanced” in the fight against the pandemic since we are in “a moment from stabilization clear and of reduction from cumulative incidence“.
However, he stressed that “in no case can there be the slightest relaxation, but quite the opposite: we must be able to live these special dates in the most responsible way possible” because, he stressed, “joy and responsibility are compatible “.
