The first secretary of the PSC, Salvador Illa, Minister of Health during the first months of the Covid-19 pandemic, acknowledged this Tuesday that during the management of the crisis “there were things that could have been done differently” and “the step of time” has “shown that they were not entirely correct”.
In this sense, he has pointed out that in February 2020 the Executive lacked data to support that confinement was the correct decision. In any case, during his participation in the Forum of the Association of Directors and Executives of Aragon (ADEA), in Zaragoza, he stressed that the management of the pandemic was carried out “with scrupulous respect for the legislation”.
In her speech, Illa pointed out that “the most complicated moments were the initial ones” because “there was a lot of uncertainty” and there was not “a clear idea of the dimension” of the pandemic, so the Government of Spain had to take “measures prompt with incomplete information”.
In any case, he continued, the Government of Pedro Sánchez acted with “decency” and was not “better or worse” than the surrounding countries and “the passage of time has given the perspective that it has not done so badly, It hasn’t been too bad.”
“All the world’s governance systems were stressed and a climate of great complicity was created,” said Illa, who recalled that “there are still daily deaths” so “this folder cannot be archived.”
