Recommendations & Requests

 

The new 2.0TD Electricity tariff: The new tariff is now in operation (from 1 June), and has been launched in Summer. Endesa have stated this will apply “for both Summer and Winter”, which presumably means, for example, the cheap slot of 00:00 – 08:00 will remain the same, irrespective of the season.
This does mean that it’s up to consumers to shift their time-switches each time we change from Summer to Winter, in order for appliances to remain completely within the low-cost slot.
One way around this is to avoid programming your appliances into the first hour of the 00:00 – 08:00 slot, i.e. use 01:00 to 08:00 for energy-hungry devices like pool pumps, washing machines, dishwashers and water heating.
This, unsurprisingly, hasn’t been part of Endesa’s sparse advice.
Thanks, Best regards, Stevie / Chris Gregory, Sayalonga

Recommendation: I have been delighted with the service of one of your sponsors, Warren at CarCleanMalaga. 
Having failed the ITV for our camper van because of faded headlights, I noted the service for cleaning headlight covers, as part of the regular advert for CarCleanMalaga on DigameXtra.
Warren did a great job, and we passed the subsequent ITV. Accordingly, I asked Warren if he could do a valet and major paint job on the van, and once again, he did a tremendous job for a good price, also rectifying problems with window seals around the van. We were delighted, and I would enthusiastically recommend his services to others.
Thanks, Bill Alexander, mabilica AT btinternet D0T com (CarCleanMalaga’s contact details can be found everyday in the Sponsors Section of DigameXtra.)

Thirty-two municipalities in Málaga are free of Covid in the past 14 days and 19, at extreme risk: {Translation} Updated: 11 June, 2021 – 07:15
-There are 32 municipalities in Malaga without Covid cases in the last 14 days. Among them, Atajate, which remains the only one in the province that has not registered any positive cases in the entire pandemic. On the other side of the scale are those at extreme risk of the spread of the pathogen, which are 19 in total, according to data from the Junta on Thursday 10 June.
-Most of the localities that have not reported Covid infection in the last two weeks are small towns in the Serrania and Axarquia. On the other hand, in the Costa del Sol Health District – where large urban conglomerates are concentrated – there is no municipality with zero cases. On the other hand, none of them are at extreme risk.
-Opposite the towns without Covid are those that are at extreme risk because they exceed 250 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. In total, there are 19 in this category. These are, according to the figures of the Consejería de Salud y Familias, Alfarnatejo (274.7), Colmenar (264.0), Frigiliana (326.6), Nerja (269.6), Ríogordo (330.5), Salares (578.0), Almargen (308.2), Antequera (525.2), Campillos (286.2), Villanueva del Rosario (386.7), Arriate (441.0), Gaucín (1. 888.0), Jimera de Líbar (527.7), Jubrique (382.4), Montecorto (341.3), Álora (350.8), Alozaina (1,067.4), Cártama (377.7) and Monda (259.5).

Those hospitalized for Covid fall to 90 in Malaga, the lowest figure in 10 months: {Translation} Updated: 11 June, 2021 – 13:45
-More Covid infections but fewer hospitalisations – up to a total of 90 in the province’s hospitals. This is the main conclusion drawn from the latest report released by the Ministry of Health and Families of the Andalusian Regional Government. In the last 24 hours, 274 positive PCR results have been detected in the province of Malaga. This is the highest figure since Monday, when there were 291.
-The positive note in Friday’s report refers to the number of hospitalised patients, which has fallen to 90, the lowest since the end of August. Of the total number of patients, 11 are in intensive care due to the seriousness of their condition. On the 25th of that month, 82 people were hospitalised after being infected with Covid, six of them in the ICU. Four days later, the number of hospitalisations increased and 130 patients were bedridden in one of the centres. Eleven of them, five more than just a few days earlier, were in serious condition.
-The day has left a new death. A total of 1,656 people have now lost their lives as a result of the virus. The number of people who have managed to overcome the disease since the beginning of the pandemic, in March 2020, is now 98,255, after adding another 204 recovered this last day, 70 less than the new infections counted in these 24 hours.
-As for the cumulative incidence rate, it continues to rise, although it continues to do so steadily. This Friday, with 163.6 infected per 100,000 inhabitants, it is up 2.2 points in the province compared to the previous day. With this number, it remains at high risk. This range is that in which the incidence is greater than 150 and less than or equal to 250. Until 4 June, the province was at medium level, having a rate greater than 50 and less than or equal to 150.
-For the last two weeks, the number of new infections has been increasing every day in the province of Malaga. In one day, from Wednesday to Thursday, it has barely increased by 0.4 from 161.0 to 161.4. Very little; it could be said that the rate is almost stabilised. But compared with 28 May last year, it is almost 36 points higher. Since then it has increased by a few tenths of a point every day. Then it was 125.6 and now it stands at 161.4.

EU adds another rare blood condition as side effect of AstraZeneca shot:
-Europe’s drug regulator on Friday identified another very rare blood condition as a potential side effect of AstraZeneca’s (AZN.L) COVID-19 vaccine and said it was looking into cases of heart inflammation after inoculation with all coronavirus shots.
-The European Medicines Agency’s (EMA) safety committee said that capillary leak syndrome (CLS) must be added as a new side effect to labelling on AstraZeneca’s vaccine, known as Vaxzevria. People who had previously sustained the condition, where fluids leak from the smallest blood vessels causing swelling and a drop in blood pressure, should not receive the shot, the EMA added.
-Separately, the EMA said it was continuing its probe into cases of heart inflammation known as myocarditis and pericarditis, primarily following inoculation with the Pfizer/BioNTech (PFE.N), (22UAy.DE) and Moderna mRNA shots, but also after the J&J (JNJ.N) and AstraZeneca vaccines. Israel’s Health Ministry said this month it had found a likely link to the condition in young men who received the Pfizer/BioNTech shot. Full article:

Junta’s head expects the committee of experts to prolong the current Covid measures: The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, has said this Friday (11 June) that “the most likely thing” is that the regional government’s so-called Covid committee of experts will decide to extend the current coronavirus measures at its meeting next week.
The Territorial Committee of High Impact Public Health Alerts of Andalucía, is due to meet on Tuesday, 15 June, and Moreno said he believed the existing restrictions would be maintained in the region “because the incidence rate is still high”.

Infection Increase in Nerja Forces Health Service to Carry Out Screening: The mayor of Nerja, José Alberto Armijo, informs that the Ministry of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucia will carry out a massive screening in the municipality at the beginning of next week, a decision that has been made by the Territorial Committee of Public Health Alert High Impact due to the increase in infections. “The specific date will be announced in the next few days and the people who voluntarily submit to them will receive a notification via SMS with information on the place and time in which they will be carried out,” he stated.

SPAIN

The conservative majority of the Constitutional Court is preparing to overturn the previous state of alarm at the request of Vox after revising its position: {Translation, 1st paragraph only}
The majority of conservative magistrates of the Constitutional Court are preparing to impose their criteria on the state of alarm and thus overturn the measure previously imposed by the government of Pedro Sánchez to fight the coronavirus pandemic at the height of the health emergency. The decision will be adopted in the plenary session scheduled for the 22nd and responds to the appeal filed by Vox against the first state of alarm decreed by the executive of Pedro Sánchez and which imposed home confinement to fight the pandemic. The change of rapporteur, now Pedro González Trevijano, is at the origin of this turn of events which, in all likelihood, will conclude in a reproach of unconstitutionality to the state of alarm decree that will have consequences on the effects of its application, such as the fines imposed for non-compliance, legal sources explain.

French Open 2021 – Novak Djokovic serves up one of his best-ever matches to oust Rafael Nadal in semis stunner: In arguably one of the best matches of his career, top-seeded Novak Djokovic beat Rafael Nadal 3-6, 6-3, 7-6, 6-2 to end the King of Clay’s bid for a record-breaking 21st Grand Slam title and hand Nadal just his third-ever loss at Roland Garros.
We all know Nadal losing in Paris doesn’t happen often. Along with that 105-3 career record on the Paris clay, Nadal was 26-0 once reaching the semifinals at Roland Garros. But Djokovic is now the only player to beat Nadal twice here.

Tennis News- French Open: Stefanos Tsitsipas went from way ahead to suddenly stuck in a five-set struggle against Alexander Zverev at the French Open on Friday before emerging to earn his first berth in a Grand Slam final.
The fifth-seeded Tsitsipas entered with an 0-3 record in major semifinals and it seemed as if he might let this one slip away, too, until a late surge carried him to the 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 4-6, 6-3 victory after more than 3 1/2 hours at Court Philippe Chatrier.
On Sunday, Tsitsipas will face 13-time Roland Garros champion Nadal or top-seeded Novak Djokovic for the championship on the red clay.
Nadal and Djokovic were scheduled to face each other for the 58th time later Friday. Full article: https://apnews.com/article/europe-french-open-tennis-sports-b6769b3b99a8e5fa74b605382cb057b1

Photos show Chinese rover on dusty, rocky Martian surface: The six-wheeled rover is surveying an area known as Utopia Planitia, especially searching for signs of water or ice that could lend clues as to whether Mars ever sustained life.
At 1.85 meters (6 feet) in height, Zhurong is significantly smaller than the U.S.’s Perseverance rover which is exploring the planet with its own helicopter. NASA expects its rover to collect its first soil and air samples in July for return to Earth as early as 2031. Photos: CNSA.

COVID-19

This is the map of Andalucía levels by preventative health districts –  from this midnight and their corresponding measures.  FB link

 

The Axarquia region remains at level 1 of the Health Alert for Covid-19: {Translation} Updated: 10June21, 10:30.
-The health district of Axarquia and the health district of Malaga to which the 21 villages of the Axarquia region belong remain this Thursday at level 1 health alert for coronavirus. This has been determined by the Territorial Committee for High Impact Public Health Alerts in Malaga, which met this Wednesday, 9 June, by telematic means.
-In this sense, the Axarquia health district has lowered its rate compared to last week, going from 108.1 the previous week to the current 99.3. However, the health district of Malaga, to which the towns of Macharaviaya, Moclinejo, Rincon de la Victoria and Totalan belong, has gone up from 120.1 to the current rate of 136.1.
-Since the beginning of the pandemic, more than a year ago, 8,173 people have been admitted to hospital in the province of Malaga, 784 to the ICU. The number of recovered patients is 97,737, after adding 268; and the number of deaths is 1,653.

SPAIN

Spain’s regions given total freedom to decide their Covid hospitality and nightlife measures: The Ministry of Health and Spain’s regions have unanimously agreed a proposal that gives the latter absolute freedom in deciding their own coronavirus control measures in the hospitality sector this summer. The department, headed by Carolina Darias, did a last-minute U-turn and also agreed to allow the regions to make decisions about nightlife restrictions which the minister had previously flagged as “non-negotiable”.

Top Court To Debate If First State Of Alarm Was Unconstitutional: The Constitutional Court will debate if Spain’s first State of Alarm, declared by President Pedro Sanchez on March 14, 2020, was legal or illegal. The court will hold its session on June 22 in plenary to study a proposal that that the restrictions on the mobility in the first months of the pandemic violated fundamental rights.
“If the government wanted to suspend fundamental rights, it would need to go to a state of exception and it did not do so because for then it would have to have gone to Congress,” Vox argued.

The “hippies” of the ‘Rainbow Family’ who camp freely in La Rioja handed 76  sanctions: {Translation}
-The Guardia Civil in La Rioja has issued 76 reports/complaints to the organisers and participants of the international “Rainbow Gathering – Rainbow Family” movement associated with the “hippie” lifestyle, which this year was held in La Rioja, in the remote enclave of the Portilla valley, about five kilometres southwest of Viniegra de Abajo and about three kilometres from the border with Castilla y León.
-The exact campsite can only be reached on foot for the last two kilometres. Another 70 members of the “Familia Arcoíris” avoided the sanction by leaving the site during the summons of the Guardia Civil officers.
-The reports/complaints have been processed for flagrant breaches of:
*Law for the Protection and Development of the Forestry Heritage of La Rioja, which prohibits free camping in all public utility forests in La Rioja and the setting of fires.
*Law on Forestry for driving off-road and parking vehicles off-road on vegetation cover.
*Law for the Protection of Citizen Security for the allegation of false or inaccurate data in identification processes.
*State and Autonomous Community legislation on health prevention and containment in relation to Covid-19, for groups of people not living together, not wearing masks and not keeping a safe distance.
-Since the arrival of the “Rainbow Family”, agents of the Armed Institute have carried out a “very exhaustive” monitoring of the meeting, which was attended at its peak by nearly two hundred people – men, women and children – of different ages and from different parts of Europe.
-The controls set up in the area prevented another 54 members of the “Rainbow Family” from arriving at the campsite. For the total control of this “hippie” commune it was necessary to mobilise a Civil Guard Air Service helicopter, as well as the Citizen Security Service Units, the Nature Protection Service, the Cynological Service with dogs specialised in the detection of narcotic substances and the Mountain Rescue and Intervention Team.
-The presence of minors in the illegal encampment also motivated their communication to the Social Services of the Government of La Rioja, not only because of a schooling issue, but also because of the very bad sanitary and health conditions.

MALAGA

Two cameras on the Costa del Sol in Spain’s top five for catching speeding drivers:
-Malaga province has the dubious honour of seeing two of its speed cameras in the top five for collecting fines in the entire country.
-In fact, the one that has been at kilometre 246 of the A-7 for two decades, heading in the direction of Barcelona, with a speed limit of 80 kilometres per hour, is the one that caught most speeding drivers in the whole of the country in 2020, with 48,771 – an average of 133.25 per day.
-The other is located just ten kilometres away at marker 256 of the A-7, in Torre de Benagalbón, in the municipality of Rincón de la Victoria, but on the Cadiz carriageway. Last year it caught 34,327 drivers who were going more than 80 kilometres per hour. Photo:SUR. Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/local/202106/10/radars-coast-spain-five-20210610113627.html

Health confirms that it will not be compulsory to pass a test to see Eurocup games in Spain at La Cartuja stadium in Sevilla: {Translation, summary}
Good news for many of the fans who were planning to attend one of the four matches of the European Championship which will be partially hosted by Sevilla.
Hours after this announcement on public radio, the Junta de Andalucía published a tweet on the official channel of the Consejería de Salud to stress that no tests will be necessary to guarantee the entry of attendees, but they will be optional in order to allow people to enjoy the show safely knowing that they are not carriers of the coronavirus. It is understood that all other security measures will remain in place and will be respected at all times with a comprehensive policy of prevention. Source, Spanish:

The future of driving may cost you $8.50 per hour if Volkswagen has its way: VW is considering charging an hourly fee for access to autonomous driving features once those features are ready. The company is also exploring a range of subscription features for its electric vehicles, including “range or performance” increases that can be purchased on an hourly or daily basis. The first subscription features will appear in the second quarter of 2022. VW anticipates the subscriptions will eventually make the company hundreds of millions of euros in additional revenue.

COVID-19

Covid Spain- 30% of the population live in municipalities where the increases in cases: {Translation, summary} Updated: 8 June 2021, 21:30
– The pandemic continues to subside in Spain but at a slower rate than in previous weeks. And although the general trend is good – cases have fallen by 5% in the last seven days, hospital pressure is decreasing and vaccination is progressing at a good pace -, the rise in infections now affects 30% of the population throughout the country. In addition, fifty major cities are at high or very high risk of infection, with incidence rates above 150 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days. The worst incidences are concentrated in the Basque Country, La Rioja and Andalusia, and to a lesser extent also in Castilla-La Mancha and Castilla y León. The situation in Andalusia stands out: 5 of the 10 most affected large cities are in the Andalusian region.
-Among the 50 large cities where infections are on the rise (5 more than last week), the situation in Antequera, in Malaga, is of particular concern. There, cases have skyrocketed due to an outbreak associated with nightlife (infections are up +319% in two weeks), and it is the city with the worst incidence in the whole country, close to 600 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. In Lucena (Córdoba), Ibiza and Zamora, infections have also multiplied, although their incidence rates are still below 150 cases, so transmission is not yet out of control. But it is in Huelva, Arrecife, Portugalete, Santurzi and Bizkaia, which have exceeded the extreme threshold of 250 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in two weeks.
-At the other extreme there are 12 large cities that are in what the ‘traffic light’ of Health considers ‘new normality’: less than 25 new infections in two weeks. They are Paterna, Mislata and Alzira (Valencia), Orihuela, Dénia and Benidorm (Alicante), Calvia (Balearic Islands), La Orotava and Arona (Santa Cruz de Tenerife), and San Bartolomé de Tirajana, Santa Lucía de Tirajana and Telde (Las Palmas). The latter municipality has not registered a new case of COVID-19 for 18 days, so its incidence rate in 14 days is 0.
-Confirmed cases of COVID-19 continue to decline in 711 municipalities where 42% of the Spanish population lives (last week it was 51%). They are rising in 543 where 29% of the population lives (last week it was 22%) and are in a plateau phase (staying more or less the same as a fortnight ago) in 105, where 12% live. The rest are very small municipalities where very few cases are recorded – less than 5 every two weeks – or for which no information is available – representing 17% of the Spanish population.

The Axarquia reported 9 new cases Covid-19 by 46 new cured: {Translation} The data provided on Wednesday 9 June by the Ministry of Health of the Andalusian Regional Government confirmed a total of 8 new cases of coronavirus infection in the Axarquia region, with 46 people who have managed to overcome the disease and no deaths. In addition, Totalán is once again a coronavirus-free municipality, as the only person still suffering from the disease in the town recovered on Tuesday.
The new confirmed cases have been reported in Nerja (3). Rincón de la Victoria (3). Vélez-Málaga (2) and Torrox (1). The people who have managed to overcome the disease in the last 24 hours are located in the municipalities of Vélez-Málaga (16). Frigiliana (7). Perdiana (5). Colmenar (4). Algarrobo (3). Rincón de la Victoria (3). Riogordo (2). Benamocarra (1). Nerja (1). Sayalonga (1). Torrox (1). Totalán (1) and La Viñuela (1).
With these data, up to ten municipalities in La Axarquía are to date without active cases of coronavirus in their municipalities. These are the towns of Almáchar, Árchez, Arenas, Benamargosa, Canillas de Aceituno, Canillas de Albaida, Cútar, Macharaviaya, Sedella and Totalán.

Malaga has 216 cases of coronavirus infection on a day with no deaths and 268 people cured of the disease: {Translation} Updated: 09 June, 2021, 13:52
-The province of Malaga has not managed to reduce the two hundred daily cases of coronavirus infection, although the fourth wave of the pandemic has been contained, in the so-called plateau phase. On Wednesday, the Andalusian Regional Ministry of Health reported 216 cases in a day in which 268 people were cured, with no deaths to report.
-There has been an increase in the number of new infections compared to the previous day, but it is very slight (10 more cases), while compared to the data from just a week ago there has been a decrease, but also very slight (12 fewer). Therefore, the pandemic continues to stagnate in its evolution, a situation that has been dragging on for more than a month, with constant ups and downs in the curve, which is not falling as would be desirable.
-Thus, the incidence rate in the province of Malaga continues to stabilise after the upturn in the first few days of June. Specifically, it stands at 161 cases of Covid per 100,000 inhabitants accumulated over the last 14 days, just three tenths of a percentage point higher than yesterday, meaning that the province remains at high risk for coronavirus, which is between 150 and 250 incidence. The increase in this indicator compared to the first day of the month is 23 points.
-For its part, Malaga city has reduced its rate from 145.4 to 144.5 according to data from the Institute of Statistics and Cartography. Likewise, the incidence has risen in two health districts: Costa del Sol, from 158.9 to 166.7; and Valle del Guadalhorce, with 203.5 (202.8 on the previous day).
-In the rest it decreases: La Vega de Antequera, which continues with the highest rate of the province with 302.2 (323.1 on Tuesday); the district Malaga, which drops almost one point, from 137 to 136.1; as well as Axarquia, which continues with the lowest rate, with 99.3 (102.9 the previous day) and Serrania, which has an incidence of 163.6, almost ten points less than the previous day.
-With regard to the pressure of care, the hospitals in Malaga have experienced a slight relief, with seven fewer patients bedridden. As of today, according to data updated by the Junta de Andalucía, 102 patients remain in hospital due to the coronavirus, of which 17 are in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). In addition, there have been 15 new hospitalisations and two admissions to the ICU.
-On the other hand, the number of positive and cured patients are once again similar, although this Wednesday the number of recovered patients is higher than those infected after several days in which it has been the other way round. Specifically, 268 people have overcome the disease in the last few hours; and in total, in these almost 15 months of the pandemic, 97,737 patients have overcome the disease.
-Once again, a positive aspect of the report provided by the Regional Ministry of Health is the number of deaths, as deaths due to Covid have been significantly reduced since the vaccination process began. No fatalities have been reported this Wednesday, although eight people have died in Malaga in the last nine days of June. The number of deaths has risen to 1,653 in the province.

UK-EU ‘sausage war’ talks stalled: Britain and the European Union failed on Wednesday to agree any solutions to ease post-Brexit trade with Northern Ireland, in a standoff that is not only deepening mistrust between the two sides but could also cloud a weekend international summit. The row has been dubbed the “sausage war” by British media because it affects the movement of chilled meats from Britain to Northern Ireland.

Premier League decides on punishment for Manchester United and Man City over Super League: The six English sides involved in the European Super League have reached a combined £22million financial settlement with the Premier League.
Manchester City and United, along with Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea and Liverpool, announced themselves as founding members of the competition in April.
After 48 hours of protests from fans, pundits and players – as well as opposition from UEFA, FIFA, the Premier League and even the British Government – all six clubs eventually withdrew.
The settlement was first reported by Sky News on Wednesday afternoon and it has also been reported that any club which signs up to a similar project in the future will be liable to a penalty of £25million, as well as a 30-point deduction.

US loosens travel warnings for over 30 countries including Spain: Following the update, dozens of countries have moved from level 4 (“do not travel”) to level 3 (“reconsider travel”). This means that the situation is not yet ideal for people who are not immunized. The list of countries includes Spain, France, Germany, Greece, Mexico, Canada, South Korea and Singapore, among others, according to the US State Department website.
A few weeks ago the European Union announced it would allow fully vaccinated visitors from the US into its territory. Brussels is now hoping that Washington will reciprocate with a similar decision regarding European travelers to the US.
Spain for its part is letting in immunized tourists from all over the world (with the exceptions of India, Brazil and South Africa) who have received one of the following vaccines: Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Janssen, Sinopharm or Sinovac-Coronavac.

Funerals are no easy task. There are numerous considerations to factor in, including logistics, food and drink, casket purchase and burial grounds. A loved one’s death brings immense emotional strain to any family, and the question of financing and arrangements only exacerbates the stress.

Halting Erosion using Vetiver
From Vetiver Spain in Sayalonga
Our Nursery is open by appointment depending on the current travel restrictions. Please email or call first. We have Moringa seedlings, Organic Moringa powder and Comfrey plants. We also have some local trees and some exotic trees from Africa.
Vetiver is a rapid growing and non-invasive sterile clump grass with a height of 1-2 metres and a root system of 3-4 metres in depth. We have been providing Vetiver throughout the EU for almost 10 years now. We are located in Sayalonga where we can plant year round but our best results by far start in February. The reason is that Vetiver is indigenous to India and Vetiver loves the heat of the summer. Use Vetiver cuttings as mulch around all of your fruit trees. Decomposing Vetiver improves soil quality, keeps the weeds down and the insects away all while helping to maintain soil moisture.
Vetiver is a nutritious and replenishable animal fodder. Horses and pigs love it. We use it in our chicken pens replacing hay because it stops mites.
In the 2 photos below you will see land prepared for Vetiver and the results 2 years later.
We also use Vetiver along driveways and sidewalks. It also makes a great and inexpensive ornamental hedge.
Here is a link to a short video showing the results.
https://youtu.be/rjTmb_LL2uo
We suggest planting now, as this is the BEST time of the year to plant.
To see more images of Vetiver go to this link.

Presently we have some specials, which include free shipping to numerous locations.

Recommendations & Requests

 

MS Bespoke Joinery: I want to highly recommend MS Bespoke Joinery dot com, who advertise in DigamExtra.
From the start it was clear that Mick runs a highly professional firm. The traditional Spanish wood panelled wardrobe doors took up space in the small bedrooms. He liaised with the builder who was opening the spaces to discuss requirements. He advised on a 3-door solution both for aesthetics and practicality and finished both rooms off to very high standard.
They have so much work that you have to take your turn,
but it is worth the wait.
Many thanks Mick.

COVID-19

Tuesday turns the Covid statistics in Andalusia upside down- fewer infections and more hospital admissions:
{Translation} Updated: 08/06/2021, 17:13
-Andalusia counted 1,161 new cases of coronavirus on Tuesday, a figure that represents a decrease of 132 cases compared to the positives recorded on Tuesday last week.
-The statistics return to high mortality figures for Covid with 14 deaths, one more than those recorded seven days ago.
-The 14-day cumulative incidence rate has increased by two points compared to Monday’s figure, standing at 189 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. This indicator only fell today in Granada and Jaén and remained the same as the previous day in Malaga. The cumulative 7-day incidence rate fell in all provinces except Almeria and Cordoba, where it increased by 15 points in one day.
-Huelva remains the province with the highest incidence with a 14-day rate of 299 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. The Junta has ruled out for the moment the application of specific measures to control contagion in this province, according to the Government spokesman, Elías Bendodo, during the press conference following the Council of Government.

Spain adds 73 new deaths, and the low incidence of 113 cases: {Translated, first 3 paragraphs} Updated: 08·06·21, 18:15
-The Ministry of Health has registered on Tuesday, with data provided by the autonomous communities, 3,504 new cases of coronavirus, of which 1,859 have been diagnosed in the last 24 hours, compared to the 871 recorded on Monday, bringing the total number of people infected with Covid-19 since the start of the pandemic to 3,711,027.
-Regarding the current average incidence of infection in Spain in the last 14 days, the report shows that it continues to fall, standing at 113.45 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, compared to the 115.32 reported on Monday by the department headed by Carolina Darias.
-As for deaths from Covid-19, 73 more have been reported, of which 112 have been recorded in the last week. This brings the overall death toll from coronavirus in Spain to 80,309 people. Source, Spanish: https://www.laprovincia.es/espana/2021/06/08/espana-suma-3-504-nuevos-52767455.html

 

Britain’s daily Covid cases rise in biggest week-on-week jump since BEFORE Christmas amid rapid spread of Indian variant as UK records 6,048 positive tests and 13 deaths: Britain’s daily Covid cases spiked to 6,048 today in a 90 per cent jump on last Tuesday — the biggest rise since before Christmas, as fears continue to grow that the rapid spread of the Indian variant will cause No10 to delay England’s June 21 ‘Freedom Day’.
Positive tests surged from 3,165 last week as the infection curve keeps ticking upwards. The last time the UK recorded a bigger jump was on December 22, when cases had almost doubled to 36,000 from the same day the previous week.
Department of Health bosses also announced another 13 deaths from the virus, and said 126 Covid patients had been admitted to hospitals on June 2, the latest day figures are available for. This was flat from the same time the previous week. Separate figures showed Covid was behind less than one per cent of fatalities at the end of May, compared to 45 per cent during the peak of the second wave.

SPAIN

Spanish Health Ministry admits that latest traffic light system for coronavirus restrictions are not obligatory for the regions: Spain’s new traffic light system for coronavirus restrictions can be “adapted and contextualized” by the regions. That’s according to the order published Friday in the Official State Bulletin (BOE).
This is despite the fact that the Inter-Territorial Council of the National Health System (CISNS), which brings together central and regional officials, said that it was “mandatory” for the regions to follow the rules when it approved the new system on Wednesday. Full article: https://english.elpais.com/society/2021-06-08/spanish-health-ministry-admits-that-latest-traffic-light-system-for-coronavirus-restrictions-are-not-obligatory-for-the-regions.html

New ITV Ruling Regarding Your Vehicle’s ABS System: With the latest change, on June 1, in the regulations of the Technical Inspection of Vehicles in Spain, (ITV), you need to be aware that your car’s ABS system is now an integral part of the inspection, and if it fails, it will be classed as a serious defect – even now including if the warning light should just come on – which is not the end of your headache, because fixing an ABS system can cost you anywhere up to €1000 depending on the fault.

ANDALUCIA

The Board is considering postponing the meeting of the Covid expert committee for another week: {Translation} Updated: 08/06/2021 16:12
-The next meeting of the committee of experts advising the Andalusian government on the evolution of the pandemic, which is due to evaluate the phases of the de-escalation next week, has no date and could be postponed for a week longer than planned, pending any substantial change in the epidemiological situation in the region, according to sources from the Andalusian government.
-At its last meeting on 1 June, the committee decided to maintain the restrictions of the first phase of the de-escalation initiated on 9 May, the date on which the state of alert was lifted, and set to meet again two weeks later. However, the meeting scheduled for 15 June has not been convened and could be postponed for another week. If it were to be held, the same sources explained, its decisions would be very similar to those taken at its last meeting on 1 June.
-The Junta de Andalucía had planned a de-escalation in three phases. Between 9 and 31 May, a stabilisation phase was agreed with the restrictions now in force. The second phase, of “progress”, was set for 1 June and should have been maintained until 21 June, when it was planned to enter the “normalisation” phase with the lowest level of restrictions. The evolution of the pandemic has so far prevented progress in these phases.
-The current epidemiological situation is the same as a fortnight ago, with a progressive fall in the number of deaths and hospitalisations due to the disease, with bed occupancy levels for Covid patients at low alert levels, and an increase in the number of infections that places the provinces of Huelva and Jaén at extreme risk incidence rates and only two of the eight Andalusian provinces, Almería and Cádiz, at medium alert levels.

Andalusians under the age of 40 years will be able to make an appointment for the vaccine for the covid next week: {Translation, summary} Updated: 08 June, 2021, 14:46
The Andalusian Regional Government plans to begin to summon “at the end of next week” the population under 40 years of age in the autonomous community to administer the vaccine against Covid-19. This was announced this Tuesday. “At the end of this week” the Andalusian Health Service will start calling “those born in 1980” for vaccination, and “at the end of next week we will start calling people under the age of 40 in Andalusia”, something that was initially “planned for the first week of July”, according to the spokesperson for the Andalusian Health Service.

SCAM Alert- Supposed expert on cryptocurrencies accused of defrauding hundreds of people in Malaga: {Translation} J.R. has been arrested in Torrox (Málaga) this Monday at midday, according to elDiario.es. Biosca has been under arrest by the Audiencia Nacional since 5 June, which is investigating him for alleged offences of fraud, money laundering and criminal organisation. Biosca has been brought before the court. The plaintiffs had requested provisional detention for him and his family (his son Sergio Biosca and his wife Paloma Gallardo), although both his son and wife have already appeared in court and stated the address where they will be available. That is to say, if it were to be applied, pre-trial detention would only be for Biosca Sr.
The lawyer handling one of the complaints, Juan Carlos Gómez León of Gran Vía Advocats, explained to this newspaper that there are hundreds of people affected throughout Spain. He represents twenty. Some put in little money (from a thousand euros); others, high amounts (up to a million). “There are people affected all over the country and all kinds of profiles,” he says. Once the complaint was admitted for processing, others who had filed individual complaints joined the case. This alleged broker’s case is the first macro-claim for alleged cryptocurrency fraud to reach the National Court.

-Simón expressed concern about the hospital situation in Madrid, which is the only region with high pressure in the ICUs (26.25 %) and with 6.3 % of the beds on the ward occupied.
-The Ministry of Health has reported 9,536 new positives since Friday and 40 more deaths.
-For a couple of weeks now, Andalusia (186.3), the Basque Country (184.1) and La Rioja (215.6) have been at high risk of transmission, with an incidence of between 150 and 250 cases, while Madrid has managed to leave this list today, going from 154.6 cases on Friday to 151.5 on Monday.

Covid Axarquia- La Axarquía has 378 active cases of coronavirus in 21 of its municipalities: {Translation} Updated: 7June2021, 10:30
-In the Axarquia region, 21 of its 31 municipalities still have at least one active case of coronavirus. Only the towns of Alcaucín, Alfarnatejo, Árchez, Arenas, Benamargosa, Canillas de Aceituno, Canillas de Albaida, Cútar, Macharaviaya and Sedella are free of Covid-19 cases. In these localities, all confirmed cases have recovered or died. The last locality to confirm that it has no active cases of coronavirus has been Benamargosa, where the only remaining case has managed to overcome the disease.
-Thus, Axarquia still has 378 active cases of coronavirus located in the municipalities of Vélez-Málaga (129). Rincón de la Victoria (88). Nerja (55). Colmenar (18). Frigiliana (15). Riogordo (15). Periana (12). Algarrobo (10). Benamocarra (9). Torrox (9). Sayalonga (4). Moclinejo (3). Almáchar (2). La Viñuela (2). Alfarnate (1). El Borge (1). Comares (1). Competa (1). Iznate (1). Salares (1).

Covid Malaga- Covid rate rises 10 points in Malaga after the weekend and hospitalisations increase: {Translation}
Updated: 07 Junio, 2021, 14:33
-The data are not good. Slowly and steadily, the Covid rate in the province of Malaga continues to rise. On Friday it was 150.1 and, after the weekend, it now stands at 160.7. Ten points more in three days. Furthermore, this figure consolidates the entry into the high risk level for the spread of the pandemic, where it has been since then. High risk is that which includes an incidence between 150 and 250 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. The province is in this range. However, the city of Malaga – its most populated area – is somewhat lower. Its rate is 140.9. This means that the capital is at a medium risk level. But it is six points higher than just three days ago.
-The good news is that there have been no deaths. Since Friday there have been no new deaths from the virus, bringing the total for the nearly 15 months of the pandemic to 1,652 people.
-Another indicator that is not positive is the number of hospitalisations. On Sunday, after several weeks, they were below 100. But this Monday they are on the rise again. There are currently 104 patients admitted to hospitals in the province. Of these, 16 are in intensive care due to their seriousness. Since the Covid health crisis began, 8,152 people infected with the virus have required hospital admission. Of these, 782 have had to be treated in an ICU.
-The number of newly infected and cured patients is more or less in balance. In the last two days, 253 more people have tested positive and another 266 people have been cured of the disease. In total, since March 2020, 101,328 patients have contracted the disease and 97,268 have been cured.

Covid Andalucía Vaccination- Andalusians between 41 and 46 years old can make an appointment this week: {Translation} Updated: 07/06/2021, 19:20
-Since Tuesday 8 June, people born in 1976 and 1975, i.e. those who turn 46 or 45 during 2021, can make an appointment for the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine directly on the Andalusian Health Service (SAS) website via ClicSalud+, through the mobile application and the Salud Responde telephone number (955 54 50 50 60) and also at their health centre, preferably by telephone. Over the next few days, the opening of the appointment schedules will continue so that those born in 1977 and 1978 (who turn 44 and 43 in 2021) can request an appointment on Thursday 10 June and those who turn 42 and 41 in 2021 (born in 1979 and 1980) can do so on Friday.
-Immunisation for this age group will be carried out by Pfizer, Moderna or Janssen. On the other hand, as a novelty this week, on Wednesday 9, the possibility of self-citation will also be opened for people born between 1954 and 1961 who have not yet received their dose. This pending group of people will be vaccinated with Janssen.
-The possibility to make an appointment directly in Andalusia will thus be extended by the end of the week for all persons aged 41 years and older. The number of appointments will be adjusted according to the number of doses available and will be operational for people registered in the SAS User Database, regardless of whether they have public or private insurance. People who have passed the disease must wait six months from the diagnosis of the infection to be able to make an appointment.
-Appointments for the administration of the second dose cannot be requested through these channels and will be provided in most cases at the time of vaccination or will be communicated later by their health centre.
-This week, Andalusia is receiving 508,920 doses: 428,220 from Pfizer, 55,000 from Moderna and 25,700 from Janssen. The AstraZeneca doses have not been confirmed, but a shipment is planned.
-In addition, anyone over the age of 55 who has not been given an appointment because their details have not been updated in the SAS database or for any other reason has the option of contacting the SAS to obtain an appointment for vaccination via the telephone numbers set up for this purpose. These lines are manned from each centre and have been specifically reinforced. These telephone numbers are published on the SAS website, where there is a specific section on appointments and Covid-19 vaccination with updated information.

SPAIN

The EU Digital Covid Certificate- Who will be issuing them and what are they for?: From July 1, the European Union is going to put into use a “coronavirus passport” that will allow its citizens to travel across the 27-country bloc without the need for quarantines – assuming the epidemiological situation does not take a new turn for the worse. The “EU Digital Covid Certificate,” as the scheme is known, is seeking to standardize the documents issued by each country so that they can be recognized by each member.

Spain reopens to global tourists, provided they can prove they have been vaccinated against Covid-19:
-The Spanish government has published the new requisites for travellers arriving in the country from outside the European Union and countries associated with the Schengen free-travel area. As was expected, the text released in the Official State Gazette (BOE) on Saturday states that from today, passengers from risk zones will be permitted to enter Spain if they have been administered the full doses of a Covid-19 vaccine approved by either the World Health Organization (WHO) or the European Medicines Agency (EMA), more than 14 days prior to arrival. No proof of vaccination, recovery or diagnostic test will be required from tourists from low-risk zones, said the government in a release, although everyone will still have to fill out the travel form available on Spain Travel Health (SpTH). Full article: https://english.elpais.com/society/2021-06-07/spain-reopens-to-global-tourists-provided-they-can-prove-they-have-been-vaccinated-against-covid-19.html

 

Spain eases Covid restrictions and opens its borders to all fully-vaccinated tourists and cruise ships: As of this Monday, 7 June, Spain is easing coronavirus control measures and opening its borders to all passengers entering the country who can show they are fully-vaccinated against the disease. Travellers must have received the complete schedule of one of the vaccines recognised by the World Health Organization (WHO) or the European Medicines Agency (EMA).
In addition, as from 7 June, cruise ships from other countries, banned since the outbreak of the pandemic, are also able to dock in Spain again. Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/national/202106/07/spain-eases-covid-restrictions-20210607094049.html

ANDALUCIA

Eight people in Andalucía are jabbed with ‘undiluted’ doses of a Covid vaccine: Eight people have been accidentally vaccinated with ‘undiluted’ doses of the Pfizer / BioNTech coronavirus vaccine in Andalucía, it has been confirmed. The incident happened last Friday at a mobile vaccination unit in San Juan de Aznalfarache, in Seville.
Once the error was detected, the Junta de Andalucía’s Ministry of Health said the eight people were transferred from the vaccination site to the San Juan de Aznalfarache health centre in the city, where they were examined by a primary care doctor. Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/national/202106/07/eight-people-andalucia-jabbed-20210607115141.html

 

Andalusian residents will be the first to have an EU-accredited vaccination certificate in Europe: This was announced this Monday, 7 June, by the president of the Junta, Juanma Moreno. Moreno has explained that those over 65, who have already received two doses of vaccines, will be the first to start receiving the accredited certificate from today at home by post.
It will also be available to those who have recently recovered from Covid.
The certificate will also cover a third group: those not vaccinated but who have undergone a coronavirus test – either PCR or antigens – with a negative result. In this case, the card will be valid for one to three days and can be used to travel or attend cultural or sporting events.

Tennis News:
-Djokovic recovers from 2-set French Open hole against teen. After dropping a pair of tiebreakers to begin the fourth-round match, Djokovic suddenly went from a big deficit to his best tennis. He grabbed 13 games in a row in a dominant display before Lorenzo Musetti stopped playing because of lower back pain and cramps while trailing in the fifth set. The result officially goes into the books as a retirement. The score when Musetti quit showed Djokovic ahead 6-7 (7), 6-7 (2), 6-1, 6-0, 4-0.
-Argentine 10th seed Diego Schwartzman reached his third French Open quarter-final on Monday with a 7-6 (11/9), 6-4, 7-5 win over Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff.
Schwartzman will face 13-time champion Rafael Nadal or Italian teenager Jannik Sinner for a place in the last four. He was beaten by the Spaniard in last year’s semi-finals.
-Greece’s Maria Sakkari demolished last year’s French Open runner-up Sofia Kenin 6-1, 6-3 on Monday to reach the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam for the first time.

La Farola Restaurant- Torrox Costa: A friend took me out to dinner for my birthday last month. La Farola, which previously was rather expensive, have a new menu and prices have been adjusted down on many items! I had honey baked lamb, for €18. A huge portion of lamb smothered in honey / sweet onion sauce, with veg and potato. Leg of lamb is now only €22! This is lamb that actually tastes like lamb! I certainly recommend giving them a try before the tourists return and prices go back up. -Ed.

COVID-19

A decline of 6% patients of Covid hospitalized in Andalusia for the fifth day in a row: {Translation} Updated: 06/06/2021, 20:00
-The number of Covid patients in Andalusian hospitals has fallen by 6%. Thus, it has gone from 757 on Saturday to 711 on Sunday, which means 46 fewer people, according to data from the Ministry of Health and Families of the Andalusian Regional Government. This decrease in the number of people admitted to hospital in Andalusia is the fifth consecutive day. Of the total number of hospitalised patients, 178 are in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), five fewer than on Saturday.
-By provinces, Seville has the most Covid-19 patients in hospital: 203, of which 54 are in ICU. It is followed by Granada, with 107 (37); Malaga, with 98 (17 in ICU); 95 in Jaen (21st); 69 in Cordoba (20); 66 in Cadiz (17 in ICU); 54 in Huelva (6) and 19 in Almeria (6).
-As for the vaccination plan, 5.2 million doses have been administered in Andalusia to date. A total of 3.4 million Andalusians have already received at least one dose, while 1.9 million have received the full course. At present, 22.7% of the total Andalusian population is already immunised against Covid, although if only the population over 16 years of age is counted, this percentage rises to 27.2%. In this way, the region has closed its best week of vaccination with 587,394 vaccinations from Sunday 30 May to Saturday 5 June, some 137,000 more than last week, when the previous record was set (450,754).
*Municipalities at “extreme risk*
-Andalusia maintains 156 municipalities in a situation of “extreme risk” for exceeding the 250 cases of Covid-19 coronavirus confirmed in the last 14 days, four weeks after the end of the state of alarm, including two provincial capitals – Granada and Huelva – which repeat for the second week. In total, there are eleven more localities at “extreme risk” for Covid than there were seven days ago.
-In addition, seven of the 156 municipalities in the provinces of Cadiz, Jaen and Seville in a situation of “extreme risk” also exceed the rate of 1,000 cases in the last two weeks, although only two of them have more than 5,000 inhabitants – La Algaba and Cantillana in Seville – the criterion set by the Junta to request judicial endorsement to decree the perimeter closure and the suspension of all non-essential activity.
-According to the latest Covid-19 incidence data by municipalities updated by the Regional Ministry of Health, consulted by Europa Press, Granada continues to be the province with the most localities in its health districts “at extreme risk” from Covid with 40 -one more than a week ago-, followed by Seville with 33 -six less-; Jaén with 24 -one more-; Huelva with 21 -the same-; Málaga with 16 -one more-; Córdoba with eleven -one more-, Cádiz with seven -one more- and Almería with four -one more-.

MALAGA

Success of the march for the environment of the delta of the River Vélez: {Translation, summary} In commemoration of the 5th of June, considered by the UN as World Environment Day, the Society of Friends of the Culture of Vélez-Málaga, together with the Gabinete de Estudios de la Naturaleza de la Axarquía (GENA-Ecologistas en Acción) carried out a programmed activity. The activity consisted of a walk through the Phoenician archaeological landmarks surrounding the Delta of the River Vélez
At the starting point, located near the old viaduct over the river Vélez in Torre del Mar, about 50 people gathered, despite the threat of rain, which fortunately did not occur.
At this starting point, the coordinator of GENA-Ecologistas en Acción explained to those present that this was a protest march, in which the aim was to show a total and unreserved rejection of the aforementioned urban development project which would destroy the now protected agricultural landscape of the Vélez River Delta.

UK Minister- Delta Variant of Coronavirus 40% More Infectious, Makes Unlocking More Difficult: The Delta variant of the coronavirus is estimated to be 40 percent more transmissible than the Alpha variant that caused the last wave of infections in the UK, Britain’s health minister said Sunday.
But people who have received two doses of vaccine, should be equally protected against either variant, he added. “That figure, around 40 percent more transmissible, is indeed the latest advice I have,” Health Secretary Matt Hancock told Sky News.
It was the Alpha variant, previously known as the Kent variant, that forced the UK into lockdown in January. Full article: https://www.news18.com/news/world/delta-variant-of-coronavirus-40-more-infectious-makes-unlocking-more-difficult-uk-min-3816290.html

COVID-19

Fewer Covid patients despite the increase in the number of infections in Andalusia: {Translation} Updated: 04/06/2021, 15:58
-On Friday, the number of patients affected by the coronavirus in Andalusia remained below 800 (759). This is 35 fewer patients than the day before. Of the total, 187 are critical patients treated in the ICU. This decrease in the pressure of care marks the positive reading of the Covid statistics in the community in the face of the progressive increase in the number of infections.
-On Friday, Andalusia recorded 1,499 new cases of coronavirus infection, a figure close to the 1,497 cases reported on Friday last week and 140 fewer positive cases than on Thursday. Four deaths have also been added to the Covid death toll.
-The epidemiological trend is therefore identical to previous days and so the 14-day cumulative incidence rate has risen again to 183.4 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants and the seven-day rate has dropped by one point. The two-week incidence rate only fell in the provinces of Almeria, with a minimum of 72 cases, and Seville (233). The highest increase is worse than the maximum recorded for several days in the province of Huelva (285). The forecast for this province is negative, as the one-week rate is seven points higher than half of the 14-day rate.
-This paradox in the evolution of the fourth wave, with more infections and fewer admissions, is the result of the progress of the vaccination process. On Thursday, 122,681 doses were administered in a single day, setting a new record high. A total of 5,095,104 doses of the vaccine have been administered, which is more than 95 percent of those received. 47.5 percent of Andalusians over the age of 16 have already received at least one dose, while 26.25 percent have already received the full course.

Covid Spain- Health reports 4,975 new infections and 97 deaths in one day: {Translation} Updated: 04.06.21, 17:24
-The autonomous communities have notified the Ministry of Health this Friday of 4,975 new cases of COVID-19, 2,215 of them diagnosed in the last 24 hours. These figures are lower than on the same day last week, when 5,482 positive cases were reported.
-The total number of infections in Spain now stands at 3,697,987 since the start of the pandemic, according to official statistics. The cumulative incidence in the last 14 days per 100,000 inhabitants stands at 117.22, compared to 118.29 on Thursday. A total of 55,621 positives have been recorded in the past two weeks.
-This Friday’s report added 97 new deaths, compared to 17 last Friday. Up to 80,196 people with positive diagnostic tests have died since the virus arrived in Spain, according to data compiled by the ministry. In the last week, 108 people with a confirmed positive COVID-19 diagnosis have died in Spain.
-Currently, there are 4,135 patients admitted for COVID-19 in Spain (4,298 yesterday) and 1,163 in ICU (1,205 yesterday). In the last 24 hours, there have been 395 admissions (432 yesterday) and 486 discharges (605 yesterday). The occupancy rate for coronavirus occupied beds stands at 3.33 per cent (3.47 per cent yesterday) and in ICUs at 12.14 per cent (12.57 per cent yesterday).
-Between 25 and 31 May, the autonomous communities carried out 704,093 diagnostic tests, of which 451,973 were PCR and 252,120 antigen tests, with an overall rate per 100,000 inhabitants of 1,497.24. The total positivity rate stands at 4.82 percent, compared to 4.86 percent yesterday. Source, Spanish: https://www.laprovincia.es/espana/2021/06/04/sanidad-notifica-4-975-nuevos-52632178.html

SPAIN

The Spanish Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that general curfews and restrictions on social gatherings cannot be introduced under the country’s current health laws: The ruling has sweeping implications for Spain’s regions, which are in charge of controlling the coronavirus pandemic in their territories.

Minister Darias insists on the obligatory nature of the new Covid rules agreement on the hotel industry for all communities- “If they don’t do it, we will have to make them comply!”: {Translation}
The Minister of Health, Carolina Darias, insisted this Friday that the agreement reached between her Ministry and the autonomous communities at Wednesday’s Interterritorial Council on the hotel and catering sector is “obligatory” and, if any autonomous community does not comply with it, they will have to “ensure that it is complied with”. So far, Madrid, the Basque Country, Andalusia and Castile and Leon have shown their refusal to apply it.
In an interview on Cadena SER, the Health Minister explained that the order will be signed and published in the BOE: “From there, we will see what measures to consider”. Asked about the mechanisms to ensure compliance, she said that this would be determined by the legal services. Darias, who said that “it is unacceptable for there to be partisan fighting over health measures”, repeated that the Interterritorial agreement “is the result of previous work” by the autonomous regions and must be resolved through “dialogue”.

EUROPE

Microsoft’s Irish subsidiary paid zero corporation tax on £220bn profit: An Irish subsidiary of Microsoft made a profit of $315bn (£222bn) last year but paid no corporation tax as it is “resident” for tax purposes in Bermuda. The profit generated by Microsoft Round Island One is equal to nearly three-quarters of Ireland’s gross domestic product – even though the company has no employees.
Politicians on both sides of the Irish Sea attacked Microsoft for “unashamedly and blatantly refus[ing] to pay tax” and said the case highlighted why urgent coordinated international action was needed to tackle the epidemic of “unethical, immoral and unjustifiable” tax avoidance by multinational companies.
