MADRID, 15 MAY – Dehors of bars and full streets, young people with a desire for fun and policemen and firefighters intent on trying to avoid gatherings and enforce the anticovid measures: in different areas of Spain, reports the newspaper El País, the first weekend without State of emergency has so far led to scenes closer to those of the times of pre-pandemic normalcy, albeit without the excesses of a week ago, when the end of the night curfew was received by hundreds of people with celebrations similar to those of New Year, often without masks and social distancing. This time, in many cities the authorities have intensified the police presence: in Barcelona, for example, the agents dispersed about 7,200 people from the beach area on Friday evening, reports the Spanish public radio Radio Nacional. The restrictions on the hours of bars and clubs still in force in almost all major cities have also contributed to avoiding out-of-control situations in public spaces. On the eve of the first full weekend with no limits to travel between regions, there was a significant increase in traffic on the roads and in the flow of passengers on trains, in particular out of Madrid and towards the coastal areas of the Mediterranean part of Spain and to the south. .
