Loosening of Restrictions: Packages



Basic description

The loosening of restrictions is divided into six steps. The main parameter to be followed is the incidence, which is an epidemiological term that refers to the number of new patients over a period of time. In this case, the new measures will be based on the number of new cases per 100,000 people in seven days. However, other indicators of the spread of the disease are also taken into account. Depending on the number of new cases in a given area, loosening of restrictions can occur at both the national and regional levels. Loosening may not occur every week, but will always be a response to the current epidemiological situation. The individual loosening will be implemented in the form of extraordinary measures of the Ministry of Health, which will be submitted to the government. The measures, which will always apply from Monday, will be announced on the Thursday before that Monday.
