Health chiefs crit­i­cise Spain’s war­ring lead­ers

- Politics · Spain · Madrid

Health ex­perts in Spain have united in de­spair at its po­lit­i­cal class, which they say is fail­ing to put sci­en­tific cri­te­ria above par­ti­san power strug­gles.

As Spain’s Left-wing gov­ern­ment and the con­ser­va­tive ad­min­is­tra­tion in Madrid squab­ble over lock­down mea­sures in the cap­i­tal, 55 med­i­cal as­so­ci­a­tions have launched a joint man­i­festo de­mand­ing that Span­ish politi­cians start co­op­er­at­ing.

The Madrid re­gion was forced un­der lock­down last week by Spain’s health min­istry, but the lo­cal ad­min­is­tra­tion has asked a court to sus­pend it.
