Contagions rebound as restrictions on leisure and tourism ease

Several autonomous communities have experienced in the last hours a rebound in the number of infections by the Covid-19 in a day in which the restrictions keep loosening, especially those related to leisure, restaurants and, above all, international tourism.

In this sense, the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda has lifted this Saturday the ban so that international cruise ships can dock in Spanish ports, with effect from June 7.

The favorable evolution of the pandemic in the European territory, from where the majority of the passengers of international ships calling in Spanish ports, allows the restart of this activity, which will boost tourism in the country, especially in those regions with a sea port.

However, the border crossings that separate Ceuta and Melilla from Morocco will remain closed until June 30, according to the provision signed by the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, and published this Saturday in the Official State Gazette (BOE).
