Sanfermines in Pamplona suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic

Pamplona is left without San Fermín due to the Coronavirus. The pandemic of Covid-19 has forced the City of Pamplona to suspend the mythical Sanfermines, the most international festival that annually brings together 1.45 million visitors from around the world, as Ana Elizalde, mayor, announced at a press conference this afternoon. in city functions.

«We have summoned you to give a news that, however highly anticipated, does not stop producing sadness. We have made the decision to suspend the festivities of San Fermín this year, "he said. ‘Health is the first thing we must safeguard and more from the institutions. The San Fermín festivities could not have been the exception. Like the other events of global significance and national holidays, it is suspended. As long as we don't have a vaccine like that we will continue, ’added Elizalde. "It is a hard and sad decision that has had the consensus of all municipal groups."

A few weeks ago, the first mayor Enrique Maya stated that the San Fermín Fair would be held, although at a later date. Back then he said that the Consistory was working so that it could be held, ‘either on or off their dates. There will be San Fermín but let's see when. ’

Mecca, in charge of organizing the bullfighting bullfights, already had in mind that the San Fermín Fair could be canceled, according to Eugenio Salinas, a member of the Casa de Misericordia, to the newspaper El Mundo: “It was something we had assumed . For April 10 or 12, we suspended contact with the bullfighters because we did not know what was going to happen. We had general ideas. There was nothing concrete. We decided to be cautious. You see that, for example, Wimbledon is suspended, which coincides in dates, and it is not necessary to be a fortune teller. The surprise would have been that the mayor did not suspend San Fermín, "says Salinas.
