The Government has accepted the request of the Generalitat of Catalonia to lift the perimeter confinement of the Conca d'Òdena area , which affects about 70,000 inhabitants of four municipalities in the province of Barcelona : Igualada, Vilanova del Camí, Santa Margarida de Montbui and Òdena .

The Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, has endorsed the report that the Government provided yesterday in order to equate the situation in these towns with that of the rest of Catalonia.

"According to the assessment of the Ministry of the Interior and Health , this uprising proceeds and we are going to issue an order endorsing the request of the Generalitat," Illa explained at a press conference from the Moncloa Palace together with the interior ministers, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, Transport , José Luis Ábalos, and Defense , Margarita Robles.

The Generalitat issued last March 12 the perimeter confinement of the Conca d'12dena due to the high number of contagions of coronavirus registered in the area. The Government, already with the decree of state of alarm in force and, therefore, with the assumption of powers, extended the measure for 15 more days on March 27, despite the fact that the Catalan Executive had demanded to pass to a more restrictive phase in the confinement of the four populations.
