‘Tenerife residents must enjoy life without a curfew, they deserve it’
Today is the day that the Governing Council will decide if Tenerife stays in Level 1 from Monday, and that residents of the island will actually get to enjoy the full benefits after a week of Level 1’ish due to the application of ‘Carnival’ restrictions with 10pm curfew, limited group size, and restrictions on entertainment.
Francisco Bautista, secretary of the UGT, the General Union of Workers, in the Canary Islands, believes that "the effort made by citizens in Tenerife since December should them allow to enter alert Level 1 properly”, that is, without a curfew from Monday.
Bautista said this in an interview this morning, adding: “The epidemiological situation in Tenerife is very positive. Although we have increased infections a little in the last two weeks, the data is still favourable. We continue with excellent figures and the healthcare pressure in hospitals, both in the wards and in ICU, continues to drop on the island”.
"The people of Tenerife have to be allowed enjoy the benefits after showing exemplary behaviour, but that does not mean we are now allowed to party in the streets or do things that should not be done," he emphasized before saying that it is important for us all to "keep the same line" as we have been so far, which has got us to this point.
