The precautionary principle requires us to interrupt all teaching activities for the next two weeks,” from Friday, said Antonio Costa, the head of the socialist government, after a council of ministers. A week after imposing a second general lockdown, which did not provide for the closure of schools or universities, the Prime Minister explained that this had become necessary because of “this new strain and its speed of transmission”.

Portugal has been chaining new daily death records for several days, with 221 additional deaths announced Thursday by the Directorate General of Health in its daily report. After reaching a record of 14,647 new cases in 24 hours on Wednesday, this country of about 10 million inhabitants still recorded 13,544 on Thursday.

This explosion of new cases is explained in particular by the spread of the British variant, which is much more contagious than the original SARS-CoV-2 virus was. “There is a strong growth of this variant,” said the Prime Minister, specifying that it currently represents 20% of infections, but that this proportion could reach 60% as of next week.

The Spanish government was subject to growing pressure on Thursday from many regions demanding a toughening of measures against Covid in the face of the explosion in the number of patients filling hospitals. More than half of the 17 regions, including some on the left such as the central government, unsuccessfully requested permission on Wednesday to bring the curfew forward.

“Thousands of people fall ill every day, thousands will die,” the vice-president of the region of Castile and Leon (center), Francisco Igea, said on Thursday on national radio, calling the government’s decision to “unjust” and “authoritarian”.

Currently, the state of health emergency decreed in October and in effect until May allows regions, which have broad powers, particularly in the area of ​​health, to impose such a curfew between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m.

Beyond this device, several regions including Andalusia (south), the most populated in Spain, also claim the right to force the population to a new strict confinement. But the government of Pedro Sanchez refuses and affirms that the arsenal of measures allowed by the state of health emergency are sufficient to reverse the contagion curve.

CHINA – Reinforcement of screening

China plans to put in place very strict health controls over the Lunar New Year holiday period, when tens of millions of people are expected to travel, as the country battles the epidemic’s worst outbreak since March 2020. Faced with the increase in new infections recorded daily in the northeast of the country, millions of people have been placed in confinement in recent weeks in the provinces of Jilin, Heilongjiang and Hebei, which borders the capital Beijing.

Authorities are calling on people not to come to the Lunar New Year festivities next month in hopes of averting another nationwide wave of the epidemic, which China managed to control last year by imposing strict containment measures quickly.

Over the past twenty-four hours, 144 new cases of contamination have been confirmed in the country, according to health authorities, a daily toll equivalent to that of January 14 and which is a highest since March 1, 2020.
