Ximo Puig announces how the restrictions due to the coronavirus and the covid passport remain in the Valencian Community
The Generalitat Valenciana plans to meet in the next few days with the Interdepartmental table for Prevention and Action against Covid-19 in order to assess the situation of the coronavirus pandemic in the Valencian Community and decide whether to extend the restrictions in force or if on the contrary it puts an end to the limitations.
President, Ximo Puig, has publicly defended the good results which -in his opinion- has brought about the implementation of the covid passport, not so much to curb infections, which record the highest data of the entire pandemic, but to encourage vaccination of the population that was not yet immunized.
According to the latest update of data from the Ministry of Universal Health and Public Health, from last Friday, January 21, there are 4,087,984 people with the complete vaccination schedule and 9,376,383 doses of the 10,240,825 received have been administered, until Thursday, January 20, 2022.
