The president of the Valencia regional government, Ximo Puig, has announced on Saturday new curfew measures to take effect from 1am on Sunday. The new measures will run until 9 December.

‘We have to react now,’ Puig tweeted. ‘To waste time now is to lose lives, jobs, well-being. These are the new measures of the resolution for all the region of Valencia from 1am [Sunday]. We change the chip. It is time for a new effort.’

The decision to bring forward the curfew measures in Valencia follows ten regions of Spain having now asked the Spanish government to impose a state of alarm in order to enforce such measures – including Valencia. The Spanish government is preparing to hold an extraordinary cabinet meeting on Sunday, in order to approve a nationwide state of alarm, specifically for this purpose.

These are the new measures for the Valencia region, announced by Puig:
