The second round no bars in Catalonia has been settled with more sanctions than the first. The number of citizens surprised in bottles or parties that do not comply with sanitary measures to reduce the risk of contagion of coronavirus has increased compared to the night before, that of Friday. One of the most striking cases has occurred in a parish in Barcelona, a place from which the Guardia Urbana evicted almost 200 people who were participating in a market held inside the religious compound.
According to the images that some testimonies captured, the ‘market’ organized in the space of the Sant Fèlix parish on Sardenya street was quite similar to an open-air party, with drinks and live music, in which they chatted animatedly – and without maintaining a safe distance – more than a hundred attendees. According to municipal sources, the police forced those present to leave the premises but did not file any sanction.
This parish gives its space to numerous religious and cultural activities carried out by neighbors of the neighborhood and not organized by those responsible for the place.
Macrofest at a farmhouse
The Mossos d’Esquadra, for their part, they closed a party in a farmhouse in Catllar (Tarragonès) that was intended to last 48 hours. The organizers had launched a call on social networks that 130 attendees attended and were sanctioned. The Catalan police, also at dawn this Saturday, dissolved a bottle mounted in the Mirador de Torre Baró (Barcelona) and fined the 75 people who had gathered to drink in this space.
Both have been the most numerous concentrations in which the regional police have intervened on the second day without bars after the closure of 15 days decreed by the Generalitat to contain the rebound in new cases. The Barcelona Urban Guard, in addition to the case of the parish, fined 37 people last night for participating in large bottles and evacuated a total of almost 600 people in various concentrations of risk.
