"We went out three weeks before, to be able to say exactly what to expect - first of all, I said - how we regulated the activity of the economic agents during the winter holidays, so we regulated the activity at the seaside on May 1, Namely, the accommodation units can occupy a maximum of 70pct of their capacity. The rest of the regulations apply equally throughout the country and on the coast, obviously, taking into account that index per thousand inhabitants, and each restaurant's recommendable capacity to use - 30pct, 50pct, depending on this situation," Bode said.
