The president of the Region of Murcia, Fernando López Miras, said this Sunday, in an interview with La Sexta, that the new Minister of Health, Juan José Pedreño “is going to ask the Spanish Agency for Data Protection to authorizes you to publish the list of those vaccinated in the Region of Murcia». In this sense, and after the requests of Citizens and United We Can to make the names public, López Miras recalled that all deputies can request that information from the Regional Assembly.
In the interview, the regional president assured that he did not know that former councilor Manuel Villegas had been vaccinated. “Villegas thought that it was necessary to vaccinate all the workers of the sanitary services, both those of the cleaning services, kitchen, maintenance or the scrapers,” he explained. “We are talking about an interpretation of the protocol. All first-line health professionals were vaccinated first, and then the counselor considered that he could transmit the virus and was vaccinated, “he insisted, as in the press conference on Saturday.
On the other hand, although he explained that the contagion curve has flattened in the Region of Murcia, “partly thanks to the measures taken 10 days ago,” he advanced that this next week will register “the greatest hospital pressure”. He also stressed that he does not understand why communities are denied the possibility of advancing the curfew or of imposing selective house confinements. As he argued this week, for him they are “tools that the communities should have at our disposal.” Finally, he affirmed that the Region of Murcia is already in a “disposition to vaccinate people over 80 years of age”, but the Ministry of Health does not authorize it until March, so he asked Illa to allow vaccination not to stop the Region of Murcia.
