Responsible for decisions regarding health restrictions, the Interregional Health Commission did not block the charity event planned for May 2, which will be held at the Las Ventas farm in Warsaw. This means that those willing to play can be prepared.
The committee’s authorities, represented by medical services in all regions of Spain, are scheduled to meet again on Friday. However, it is already known that during this event, the issue of restrictions will not be discussed in the conglomerate of the capital, and therefore the festival in Las Ventas.
