The Minister of Science and Innovation, Diana Morant, has appealed for calm, “normality” and a “responsible use” of masks when they cease to be mandatory indoors next week.

“Whenever we believe it is necessary, there is nothing more than taking it off and putting it on, but in general terms we are moving to a new phase that allows greater flexibility,” she explained in an interview in Valencia.

Morant assured that the current situation of the pandemic allows “new measures” like this to be taken, thanks to the fact that the “great” majority of the Spanish population is vaccinated and the “enormous” decrease in mortality and ICU admissions due to coronavirus. “Again, we are going to make decisions at this stage,” she advanced.

She also highlighted the success of the vaccination campaign and the measures aimed at ‘normality’, recalling that Spain was “one of the few countries that has not had to suspend the school year”.

Regarding the situation of the Spanish Hipra vaccine, the minister recalled that it is in the review phase by the European Medicines Agency in an “accelerated process”, for which she has trusted that “very soon” it will be a reality. She has also predicted that it will help both this health crisis and future ones.
