Given the measures adopted by decision of the Junta de Andalucía as a result of the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, Francisco Ocaña, VOX deputy for Granada in the Parliament of Andalusia, has shown his disappointment with the Junta de Andalucía maintaining "Very severe restrictions for the province and particularly harsh in the city of Granada."
Francisco Ocaña considers that the second wave of the pandemic does not justify improvisation and the lack of a plan that balances the economy with strict and restrictive sanitary measures. “It is not acceptable that the president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juan Manuel Moreno, focuses on the fact that the problem is the mobility of people when it is only part of a possible solution to the advance of the pandemic that all citizens accept but do not they contribute nothing to the local economy ”, he said.
The problem is that despite the experience with the first wave, the Government of the Junta de Andalucía, with all the warnings and contributions that VOX in Andalusia had been proposing to it during the past months, had not drawn up an economic plan of shock before a possible and more than probable second wave of the pandemic given the disaster and the damage caused, many of them irreversible.
During these months, he has only been complacent about the recent policies that, seeing the results, we question their usefulness. Forgetting what is important has led them not to plan severe economic measures that will minimize the economic impact that strict sanitary actions would entail. "This situation is what is causing our small businesses, hotels and the self-employed to be driven to ruin by cessation of activity," said the parliamentarian.
On the other hand, Francisco Ocaña, who has lamented the lost time, has celebrated that the Government of Andalusia has listened to VOX "and has allowed the collection of processed food" to take away "in catering establishments and cafeterias". "We know that even though it is not a solution to the catastrophe, it will undoubtedly help hundreds of hoteliers to maintain a minimum of activity and income for as long as the severe restrictions that the people of Granada are following remain," he stressed.
"We will continue working so that the government listens to us and releases, as quickly as possible, the direct and sufficient aid items for the business fabric of Granada to save the little that is already left," concluded the VOX deputy.
