Spanish regions with a low coronavirus infection rate will be allowed to reopen nightlife before herd immunity is achieved, which is expected by mid-August, the health minister said on Wednesday after meeting with regional authorities, APA reports quoting Reuters.
Regions with a 14-day notification rate of infections below 50 cases per 100,000 people will be able to open discos and clubs until 3 a.m., although some restrictions will continue.
It was not clear whether dance floors will be allowed and the party group - a maximum of six people inside - has to remain masked, according to local media.
"A gradual and progressive return to normality is needed. Lessons must be learned", the health minister, Carolina Darias, told journalists.
