Madrid region imposes partial lockdown on worst hit zones of capital. 1

The regional government will limit movement between and within areas badly affected by a new surge in coronavirus infections, regional leader Isabel Diaz Ayuso said in a much anticipated press conference on Friday afternoon. 

The restrictions would affect over 850,000 people – roughly 13 percent of the 6.6 million population of the region where some 25 percent of the new cases had been recorded.

Those who live within zones where the average incidence of the coronavirus in the last 14 days across has reached more than 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

The residents of the areas, mainly in densely populated, low-income neighbourhoods in the south of Madrid, will as of Monday only be allowed to leave their zone to go to work, seek medical care or take their children to school.

All bars and restaurants will have to reduce their capacity by 50 percent, the regional government of Madrid said in the statement.   

Residents of the areas affected will be allowed to move around freely inside their zone but no one from outside will be allowed in.

She said 37 "health zones" which affect 26 neighbourhoods within six districts and 11 areas across 8 municipalities of the region had been identified for "drastic measures". These are:

Madrid Capital:
Carabanchel: Puerta Bonita, Vista Alegre and Guayaba.

Usera: Almendrales, Las Calesas, Zofío, Orcasur and San Fermín.
