Subscribe to our channel! rupt.ly/subscribe The Spanish Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez, has called in 2,000 military personnel to send to regional governments to help track infections with the aim of containing the coronavirus pandemic. Sanchez made the statements on Tuesday in Madrid, after the first Council of Ministers following summer holidays. "The government of Spain is going to make available to regional governments effective members of the Armed Forces to carry out tracking tasks. I announce that there are 2,000 military personnel trained in tracking techniques at the disposal of the regional governments. And they are available to all those regions that have more difficulty," said Sanchez. In view of the evolution of the pandemic curve, Sanchez is alert, because "it is not good, it is worrying, especially in some territories, and consequently we have to stop it," although the Prime Minister has also asked for serenity in this respect. "We are far from the middle of March and there must not be a fear that paralyses us and prevents us from acting," he added. Pedro Sanchez has also offered the regional governments the possibility of decreeing a state of alarm in their territories to contain the coronavirus. Madrid, Catalonia, the Basque Country and Aragon are the communities with the highest epidemiological rate per 100,000 inhabitants.
