Worth the cost

Whilst Spain as a whole is seeing a rise in cases of Covid 19 with a 14 day rate of 201 per 100,000 people, in Valencia the rate has declined further to 34.9. 

The reason for this is that Valencia has opted to move more gradually than some of the other regions in deescalating measures. By maintaining strict control over the internal capacity of restaurants, early closures of establishments and a lockdown on people's movement in and out of the region, Valencia is so far avoiding the fourth wave of the virus. 

Of course, there has to be a balance. Nobody wants to curb people's freedom any more than is necessary but at the same time we want to see this deadly virus properly under control so that we can return to normality in as safe a way as possible.
