Spain's prime minister, Pedro Sánchez, said on Monday that the decision of the United Kingdom to advise against all non-essential trip to Spain was "unjust" from an epidemiological point of view. Sánchez has stressed that the Spanish government is in contact with the UK authorities in seeking a reconsideration.

"The decisions of the United Kingdom are being misaligned. Many territories (in Spain) have a cumulative incidence of contagion below the European average and also that of the UK."

The Spanish government is speaking with the UK government and wants the UK to reconsider this "unjust" decision from the point of view of epidemiological criteria, given a "very low" incidence in most of the country.

Sánchez emphasised the efforts made by the Spanish tourism industry in terms of health safety.

For the same reason that hundreds of bars and restaurants in Mainland Spain where I live can be be seen on any day, packed with customers carrying on as before with absolutely no restrictions whatsoever.

Money.
