The mayor of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, José Manuel Bermúdez, has announced more controls in the streets to minimize the incidence of the coronavirus and has appealed to citizen responsibility so residents "exercise extreme precautions." 

On Friday, the Canary Islands Government activated the so-called 'red traffic light' level alert for the entire island because it has exceeded the figure of 100 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. Tenerife and Gran Canaria face fresh restrictions from today, Saturday, for at least 15 days, La Gomera for up to 15 days, and Fuerteventura for a week.

Specifically, gatherings of more than 10 people and mass events are forbidden (scheduled public cultural activity is excepted); a closing time is 00.00 hours, with no new clients accepted from 23.00 hours, for the hotel, restaurant and terrace establishments, and in beach bars and restaurants. Non-occupational day centers will be closed.

MORE THAN 500 SANCTIONS IN THE CITY DURING THE LAST MONTH

Local Police has filed more than 500 sanctions in the last month for non-compliance with current health regulations.

"We cannot leave all the weight of control in the hands of our agents, who have been making a great effort for months to help control infections," said the mayor, adding that "as the City Council we will continue to increase control but they will be of no use all the efforts of public workers if the public is not aware of what we are at stake. "

AN UNEMPLOYMENT RATE GREATER THAN 25%

The mayor has reported that Santa Cruz de Tenerife already has an unemployment rate of over 25% and emergency aid has doubled compared to the previous year. "It is everyone's responsibility that these figures do not continue to increase," he added, "and it is vitally important that we abide by the rules imposed and that we take extreme precautions."

Bermúdez recalled that a social and economic recovery forum will be set up for debate and proposals so that all social agents and political parties contribute to the return to socioeconomic normality in the municipality, "but that effort of dialogue and seeking consensus may be of no use if infections continue to increase in the city. "
