The Director of Traffic of the Basque Government, Sonia Díaz de Corcuera, has stated that the Ertzaintza will maintain Ertzaintza controls at Easter on the roads of Euskadi to avoid trips to other neighboring autonomous communities, such as Cantabria, La Rioja or Navarra, because There will be no exit operation due to the incidence of the covid-19 pandemic.
In an interview with Radio Vitoria, collected by Europa Press, Díaz Corcuera recalled this Saturday that the mobility of Basques to other regions will be conditioned by the perimeter confinement of the Autonomous Community.
In this sense, she has urged to follow the sanitary recommendations and avoid displacements in order to prevent the spread of the virus “that brings everyone upside down.” However, she has indicated that there will be internal flows, regardless of the municipalities that exceed 400 cases per 100,000 inhabitants for 14 days, which will remain closed.
Police controls will be installed on Basque roads so that all the measures established by the Basque Civil Protection Plan, LABI, are complied with, and the Traffic Director has pointed out that it is something that “benefits everyone”. “We must respect the perimeter confinement because we are experiencing a serious health crisis that affects us all,” she insisted.
STAY IN THE MUNICIPALITY
After recalling the increase in covid-19 infections that is being detected in recent days, he has asked the population to stay in his municipality, “if possible”, and if he is going to move because they had already made a hotel reservation for Easter, that complies with all health recommendations.
Finally, she has demanded that, once the Basques circulate on the roads within Euskadi, “they do not lower their guard” and maintain “prudence and responsibility”. “Let’s not forget that we can all fit on the road and we must make the road a safe place for everyone,” she pointed out.
