Recommendations & Requests

 

Entertainment with security covid distance: Hello. Some friends and me are seeing that the options of entertainment will be more reduced not just by the government rules, the fact is that sometimes in some activities is not possible to keep the distance or after 2 drinks you relax too much. We are bored of doing the same things day after day and after we consider different options we came to the conclusion that badminton is a good game to enjoy it with security and at the same time socialize. For this reason we encorauge you and your partner if you have it, to join us. You don’t need to be fit, know the game or have to bring the equipment. We will play in Torrox coast. We will meet maximum 4 persons each time. In this moment we are 44, 48 & 56 years old but all ages are welcome. I will create a calendar for everybody to play. Contact Marison Tel./ 658.569. 7oo

Andalusia will update on Monday and Thursday the rate in municipalities to impose restrictions: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 18/01/2021 14:11
-The provincial committees will meet every Monday and every Thursday to assess the situation of the municipalities. These committees will decide which municipalities are closed perimeter (those that have more than 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants or grade 1) and in which municipalities the closure of all non-essential activities is ordered (those that have more than 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants or grade 2) .
-The measures will come into force at 00:01 every Wednesday and 00:01 every Saturday. If a municipality drops below 1,000 or 500 cases, the measures may be relaxed, provided that 14 days have elapsed since they were applied.
-If a municipality goes from more than 500 to more than 1,000 cases, it can go from grade 1 to grade 2, even if 14 days have not elapsed. In these cases, the period of 14 days will begin to count again from the day that grade 2 entered into force.
-The measures will be in force for at least 14 days, even if the incidence rate drops
-This roadmap of the Board has been announced by the Minister of the Presidency, Public Administration and Interior of the Junta de Andalucía, Elías Bendodo in Antequera. Bendodo has indicated that this Monday those municipalities that exceed 500 or 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants will be known.
-In this way, for the data updated on the corresponding Monday, the measures will come into effect at 00:01 on Wednesday, and in the case of those updated on Thursday they will do so on Saturday at 00:01, explained the Andalusian counselor, who has added that the decision is that these measures are maintained for 14 days “to slow down the speed of the curve.”
-There will be no automatic changes. Each territorial Health Committee must analyze the rates and publish in BOJA a resolution on changes in the level of municipalities that exceed the 14-day incidence rate of 500 or 1,000 infections; that is, there are no automatic changes.
-Asked if a total closure of all commercial activity is being considered, Bendodo has clarified that they are doing “precision surgery” with the measures that the Junta de Andalucía has in hand, adding that they have to combine ” the fight against the third wave with maintain economic activity and employment ” . “In this balance we move on a daily basis, obviously we do not want more damage to the economy or employment,” he said.
Bendodo has also alluded to the exception of mobility so that you can go to Sierra Nevada , emphasizing that it is “saving the economy as much as possible”: “It is not just going skiing, it has a very powerful activity in its environment, it generates 500 million euros per year.” At this point, the Andalusian counselor of the Presidency has argued that there “the rules of mobility, capacity and hours also apply. We are working on balancing the fight against the third wave and doing as little damage as possible to the economy.
He added that mobility between provinces is allowed for sports with exceptions and has also set an example for the control of invasive species from the hunting point of view.

The Government announces that families will be able to request mortgage moratoriums again until March: The Government will resume until March the legal moratoriums on mortgages and consumer loans. This was announced by the Vice President of Economic Affairs, Nadia calviño , before today’s Eurogroup meeting. With this measure, families, under certain assumptions, may request the suspension of payments of these two types of credits until the end of the first quarter.
This was part of the so-called “social shield” of the Executive, but the possibility of requesting it declined at the end of last September. The duration of that moratorium for each applicant was one legal term of three months , with which it is expected that on this occasion the period of extension of the suspension of payment will also be the same amount of time.

Consider changing these 14 settings on your iPhone 12: Believe it or not, Apple’s default settings aren’t always the best to help you get the most out of your iPhone. We’ll take you through a few steps that will make your new iPhone 12 even better. For instance, if you live somewhere with zero or spotty 5G coverage, there’s no reason to keep 5G on.
Do Not Disturb is disabled right out of the box, which means your iPhone will continue to beep at you throughout the night, causing light sleepers to wake up. Who wants that? Instead, a dip into settings can automatically silence your phone all night long, take advantage of dark mode to save battery life, and put Control Center to work for you by changing your phone’s settings.
Read on for all our tips and note that we update this article as Apple adds new features and settings. Full article: https://www.cnet.com/how-to/change-these-14-settings-on-your-iphone-12-right-away/

Andalucía Claims Government Is Considering Curfew Extension: A spokesperson for the Junta de Andalucía, Elias Bendodo, made the bold claim on Sunday, January 17. The central Executive “seems to be thinking about it, studying it and may agree” when asked about a possible extension to the 10pm curfew. The Andalucían President, Juanma Moreno, has been very vocal in recent days about his desire to have a longer curfew, if not complete home confinement.
Speaking in Estepona, the minister said he was confident that the Government was considering the request of Andalucía to extend the curfew to 8pm and impose home confinement in certain situations.

Is our municipality closed ? The Facts explained in plain English:
Much confusion surrounds the perimeter restrictions here in the province of Malaga so here are a few pointers.
The all-important figure is the incident rate, and this describes the saturation of people in an area of 100,000 people.
So a 500 incident or infection rate means 500 people in 100.000 have a positive infection revealed by a test—obviously the higher the figure, the higher the saturation of those 100.000 people.
Malaga is claiming if you have a rate above 500 in 100.000 inhabitants you are at a bigger risk so the municipality will close its perimeters till the rate lowers.
Your municipality’s town halls have information on official figures for the incident rate and in the list in this article.
For instance, coin recorded an incident rate of 1079 per 100.000 in the last 14 days so this municipality is closed for at least 20 days to bring these numbers down. Marbella, however, has a rate of 485 which is close but not quite 500 per 100.000 people, so it keeps its municipal borders open.
This pic includes a recent list of municipalities with 500 to 1000, and also lists those with over 1000 cases which are therefore closed and restricted. Source: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2021/01/16/is-our-municipality-closed-the-facts/

Norwegian health officials have adjusted their advice on who gets a COVID-19 vaccine as 29 elderly people die after jab: Norwegian health officials have warned that vaccinating the most frail older people with serious underlying health conditions could be dangerous after the country reported more than 25 deaths.
The Norwegian Medicines Agency first reported on Thursday that 23 elderly people had died in a short time after receiving their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, 13 of which may have suffered from deadly side effects.
However, the number of deaths has been updated to 29 people as of Sunday, according to Bloomberg.
According to the agency, “all deaths” are linked to the Pfizer vaccine, which was the only one available in the country until Friday.
Officials listed fever, vomiting, and nausea as side effects which “may have led to the deaths of some frail patients,” Sigurd Hortemo of the Norwegian Medicines Agency said, Bloomberg reported.

‘Covid tongue’ is being increasingly spotted by sufferers – the symptom explained: Tim Spector, lead scientist on the ZOE COVID Symptom Study app, and Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College London, tweeted about the new symptom on 13 January.
He wrote: “One in five people with Covid still present with less common symptoms that don’t get on the official PHE list – such as skin rashes.
“Seeing increasing numbers of Covid tongues and strange mouth ulcers. If you have a strange symptom or even just a headache and fatigue, stay at home!”
He included a picture of a tongue with strange markings on it. Full article: https://www.scotsman.com/read-this/covid-tongue-being-increasingly-spotted-sufferers-symptom-explained-3101784

COVID Restrictions Update- This article is a summary of the official 8 page bulletin from the BOJA (Official Gazette of the Junta de Andalucía): {Full article translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 01/16/2021 20:32
-After the announcement yesterday of the restrictions by Juanma Moreno and the refusal this Saturday of the Government to grant the president’s requests, the Board publishes the Official Gazette
-The Government does not allow Andalusia home confinement but it will study the advance of the curfew
-The ten new measures of Andalusia to combat the coronavirus and stop the third wave
-The “explosion” of the third wave of the coronavirus has caused many communities that have been forced to act. Thus, Andalusia has been one of those that has announced new measures against Covid, which will come into force at 00.00 hours this January 17 (early morning from Saturday to Sunday) after the Board has published the Official Gazette of the Board of Andalusia (BOJA) .
-The president, Juanma Moreno , had already explained the most important keys in his appearance on Friday night, but there were a couple of measures that were pending for the Pedro Sánchez government to accept them.
-Andalusia wanted to advance the curfew at 8:00 p.m. and had requested permission to carry out confinements home in those municipalities in which the contagion rate was soaring. Salvador Illa, Minister of Health, intervened this morning at a press conference to make it clear that he will not allow the communities to confine, although he did open the possibility of advancing the curfew, something that he commented that he will deal with those that are interested in it.
-Thus, the curfew in Andalusia remains from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., since Juanma Moreno indicated that it would be the case if the Government did not respond to his request. For the rest, it confirms perimeter closure of the community, the provinces and the municipalities that exceed the incidence of 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days .

Click to access BOJA21-506-00008-625-01_00184589.pdf


-In the same way, the BOJA indicates that there is the closure of the hotel industry and non-essential commerce in the 91 municipalities that have a contagion rate higher than 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. In addition, the bars and restaurants in Andalusia, as well as the shops, will have to close at 18.00 .
-Juanma Moreno also confirmed meetings of people restrictions. The maximum goes from six to four, both in the private sphere (houses) and in the public sphere (street and bars).
*Summary of measures*
1. The Andalusian perimeter closure is maintained. You can only enter or leave with just cause.
2. Closing of hotels and shops at 6 pm.
3. Meetings of 4 people, including tables in bars and restaurants.
4. Perimeter closure of the eight provinces.
5. Perimeter closure of the 219 municipalities with a contagion rate greater than 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
6. Closure of the hotel trade and non-essential commerce in the 93 municipalities (of those 219) with a contagion rate higher than 1,000 per 100,000 inhabitants (level 4). At the beginning, the Campo de Gibraltar district was in Level 4, grade II, except for Jimena de la Frontera and San Martín del Tesorillo, for having between 500 and 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. However, the committee of experts has considered that these two municipalities must also enter Level 4, grade II, so no non-essential activity will be allowed in them. In the other 126 municipalities with a contagion rate higher than 500 cases, they will be closed on the perimeter but hospitality activities will be allowed until 6:00 p.m.
7. The curfew is maintained from 10 pm to 6 am, since the Government has not stopped from 8 pm to 6 pm, at the expense of negotiating with the autonomous communities that request it.
8. The restaurant services may make home deliveries until 11:30 p.m., establishing the deadline for placing orders at 10:30 p.m. They may also provide take away food collection services until 9.30 pm In the collection services at the establishment, the customer must place the order by phone.

Sierra Nevada Ski Resort Remains Open Despite Tough New Restrictions: Cetursa has most certainly breathed a sigh of relief as the official Gazette will announce that the Sierra Nevada ski resort can remain open, despite tough new restrictions and municipality closures announced for the Andalucían Community. The ski resort was at capacity on Saturday, January 16 as the recent cold weather has created perfect skiing conditions, and people living further afield no doubt flocked to the mountains to take advantage of the sport before travel is restricted on Sunday. It is expected that the official guidelines will indicate that people may travel to the Sierra Nevada once they don’t come from confined municipalities, but they will have to purchase a ski pass in advance.

The National Police warns of a rebound in scams impersonating Microsoft: The Higher Headquarters of the National Police in Aragon has alerted citizens of a upsurge in scams, initiated through a call, impersonating the Microsoft company .
The modus operandi begins through telephone contacts, which are made using random dialling devices. Thus, unknown people pose as employees of said technology company and request access to the computer that appears to be affected by a virus . Through a series of indications, the victim installs a remote control program on his computer with which the scammers seize keys, passwords and other sensitive information, the National Police explained in a press release.
Before ending the call, the person who is being deceived is asked a small amount of money as a resolution of the problem , for which they ask for the numbering of a credit card. The keys, passwords and sensitive information captured by the scammer, added to the numbering of the card provided by the victim, make the consummation of the scam possible.
From the Higher Police Headquarters it is advised that in no case Microsoft will contact someone without the user having previously requested their service. Source: https://spainsnews.com/the-national-police-warns-of-a-rebound-in-scams-impersonating-microsoft/

 

WhatsApp says you shouldn’t worry about it sharing personal data with Facebook; Experts say you should switch to ‘highly trusted’ Signal: Alan Woodword, a computer scientist at the University of Surrey, told Insider that the mere fact WhatsApp is sharing any sort of personal data with Facebook is concerning as “Facebook openly says that their business model is to use data related to users for profit.”
Woodword, who prefers to use Signal rather than WhatsApp, said he was surprised when he saw the news because Facebook said it wouldn’t collect data from WhatsApp when it took over the messaging app in 2014.

New Covid measures in Andalusia: {Full article translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 01/15/2021 22:47
-The expansion of the third wave of the coronavirus has forced the Board to act again, just a week after it announced the new measures for Andalusia . And it is that the cases of contagions and hospitalizations have a very worrying dynamic , which has caused the Andalusian Government to act earlier than expected, since the restrictions that began this Monday, January 11, were to remain until the 24th at 11:59 p.m. hours.
-Instead, everything has been precipitated and the Ministry of Health has met this afternoon with the committee of experts , announcing the president, Juanma Moreno , new measures against the Covid in Andalusia , among which those referring to the curfew at 8:00 p.m., the closure of provinces, shops and bars with hours until 6:00 p.m. and meetings of a maximum of four people both in the private and public sphere.
-Thus, Juanma Moreno , who was the one who appeared before the Andalusians a week ago, has done it again this afternoon, explaining the new decisions adopted by the Junta de Andalucía .
-The Andalusian Government asked the Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, to be able to modulate the curfew and even carry out a home confinement , although the new PSOE candidate for Catalonia did not agree to the request . But the Junta has decided that the curfew in Andalusia is at 8:00 p.m. This is how it is going to include it in the BOJA that must be published tomorrow, although clarifying that it is a recommendation waiting for the Government of Pedro Sánchez to agree to be able to fix it before 10 p.m., something that, according to Illa, they cannot currently make the autonomous communities. Even so, Andalusia wants to set it between 8:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. If the Government does not allow it, he would stay from 10pm to 6am.
-Also, with respect to the measures that the Board announced a week ago, there are more important changes. For example, apart from the perimeter fence of the community, now the provinces are also included . In this way, you can only enter or leave each of the eight for justified reasons. What’s more, there will also be perimeter closures of those municipalities that exceed the incidence of 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days. The Board will review this data for all municipalities on a daily basis to expand the list.
-And there is more. Closure of non-essential hotels and commerce in the 91 municipalities that have a contagion rate of more than 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. And, if the Government of Spain authorizes it, home confinement in those 91 municipalities .
-There are also news in the number of people for the meetings . For months it was set at six, but from this Sunday the maximum will be four people . And the norm will be both in the private sphere (houses) and in the public (street, parks, bars …) .
-Likewise, shops and bars have their hours reduced. Juanma Moreno last week announced that businesses in Andalusia had close at 20.00, but after the entry into force these measures will be to 18.00 .
-The same will have to do the hospitality industry. Bars and restaurants already had to close at 6:00 p.m. p.m. , but there was the exception of cafeterias , which could remain open until 8:00 , as long as they did not serve alcoholic beverages. Now this rule disappears and all the hospitality will have to close at 18.00 .
-Summary of measures
1. The Andalusian perimeter closure is maintained. You can only enter or leave with just cause.
2. Closing of hotels and shops at 6 pm.
3. Meetings of 4 people, including tables in bars and restaurants.

New measures and restrictions against the coronavirus in Andalusia announced 15 Jan., 2021

This is the latest new info. As different rules will be applied to different municipalities depending on covid incidence rates, no town by town list of new restrictions is yet available, only these general rules. I will try to get a more accurate summary in tomorrow’s full issue of DigameXtra. Source, Spanish: https://sevilla.abc.es/andalucia/sevi-directo-junta-anuncia-nuevas-medidas-y-restricciones-contra-coronavirus-andalucia-202101151935_directo.html#DD

The new measures look like this:

Perimeter closure of Andalusia and the provinces

Perimeter closure of municipalities with an incidence greater than 500 cases

Total closure of non-essential activity in municipalities with more than 1000 incidents and confinement if the Government allows it.  

Throughout Andalusia, shops and hotels close at 6:00 p.m.

Meetings of up to 4 people

Curfew at 8:00 p.m. (recommended but not the norm because the Government does not allow it, so it continues to be, officially from ten at night to six in the morning)

In municipalities with an rate of incidence more than a thousand cases -which occurs in 91 towns in Andalusia-, perimeter closure, closure of non-essential shops and hotels and, if the central government consents, home confinement.

What’s On

Due to the Covid restrictions, to avoid disappointment I suggest you call to confirm events and times before the event. -Ed.

 

Updated COVID restrictions will be announced today, Friday.

From what I have read, the Junta de Andalucia wants stricter rules and is considering a return to home confinement, but the central gov’t needs to approve that, and so far have been hesitant to do so.
What has been discussed, that the Junta can enforce, is that the curfew will begin an hour earlier, at 9pm, and possible municipality or health district closures. However, we will have to wait until later today to learn the verdict. -Ed.

Andalusia doubles those hospitalized for coronavirus in just two weeks and already has 1,791 admitted: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 01/14/2021 19:37
-The third wave of the coronavirus in Andalusia, they had already warned from the Board, is explosive. So much so that this Thursday it has broken the second record of Covid-19 infections since the start of the pandemic. If yesterday the highest figure since March was given with almost 7,000 infections, today it is the second highest number of cases since the beginning of the health crisis, 5,723. Even in the worst of the second wave, this figure was not reached.
-Proof that the second wave arrives with great force is that the incidence rate adds points each day. Thus, today it stands at 405 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants when yesterday it was just over 350. To see the speed with which this data grows, it is enough to remember that last week in Andalusia there were 150 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants, almost three times less than today.
-In addition, the community is close to the average number of cases in Spain -493- when for weeks Andalusia remained well below that average and in the lowest positions of incidence of the pandemic.
-This growth in cases is directly reflected in the hospital situation, which worsens for another day. Those hospitalized for coronavirus are 1,7092 this Thursday, 94 more than yesterday and 700 more than the same day last week. Furthermore, those almost 1,800 hospitalized for Covid-19 are double the number two weeks ago, at the beginning of the year.
-In the ICU the situation is also getting worse. Andalusia has been adding patients in intensive care for eight days, which this Thursday totalled 296. There are 12 more than yesterday and almost 100 more than at the beginning of the year, just 14 days ago.
-Although the situation of the hospitals is worrying, they have indicated from the Board, for the moment the pressure on the health system is not anywhere near what it was at the peak of the second wave . Then, 3,478 were hospitalized in Andalusia, 528 of them in the ICU. However, with this rate of growth, which now, the mark of the second wave may not be that far.
-For its part, there are 29 deaths in Andalusia due to coronavirus this Thursday. It is a figure that is in the average of what has been registered in the previous days in the community. In fact, Andalusia has been scoring around 30 deaths from the pandemic for three days.

Moreno Asks Andalucíans To Stay At Home Where Possible:
President of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, pleaded with citizens to “stay at home to the best of their ability” and try “not to multiply unnecessary social gatherings.” The president’s biggest message (in a speech Thursday) in Sevilla was that citizens should avoid unnecessary gathering wherever possible, and not be tempted to turn their homes into “mini-restaurants” by organising “clandestine parties” for people of different households. Earlier, Mr Moreno called on Pedro Sanchez’s government to take a tougher line with coronavirus restrictions and lockdown. Full article:

COVID-19 infection gives some immunity, but virus can still be spread, study finds: People who have had COVID-19 are highly likely to have immunity to it for at least five months, but there is evidence that those with antibodies may still be able to carry and spread the virus, a study of British healthcare workers has found.
Preliminary findings by scientists at Public Health England (PHE) showed that reinfections in people who have COVID-19 antibodies from a past infection are rare – with only 44 cases found among 6,614 previously infected people in the study.
But experts cautioned that the findings mean people who contracted the disease in the first wave of the pandemic in the early months of 2020 may now be vulnerable to catching it again.
They also warned that people with so-called natural immunity – acquired through having had the infection – may still be able carry the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in their nose and throat and could unwittingly pass it on.
“We now know that most of those who have had the virus, and developed antibodies, are protected from reinfection, but this is not total and we do not yet know how long protection lasts,” said Susan Hopkins, senior medical adviser at PHE and co-leader of the study, whose findings were published on Thursday.

Dutch government faces collapse over child benefits scandal: The Dutch government will decide on Friday whether to step down over an escalating scandal in which tax officials wrongly accused thousands of parents of fraud, plunging many families into debt by ordering them to repay childcare allowances.
The opposition Labour party leader, Lodewijk Asscher, who was social affairs minister in the previous government, resigned over the affair on Thursday, denying he knew the tax authority was “wrongly hunting down thousands of families” but conceding a failing system had “made the government an enemy of its people”.

Andalusia requests the Central Government to advance the curfew at nine at night: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es}
Updated: 01/13/2021 20:07
-The Minister of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucía, Jesús Aguirre, has transmitted today to the Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, at the meeting of the Interterritorial Council between autonomous communities, to advance the time of the curfew by one hour, being able to be established at nine p.m.
-Aguirre has indicated that “we have transmitted our request to be able to advance the curfew as a containment measure against the pandemic as well as legal tools to carry it out, although at the moment they have not offered us such a possibility. The Minister of Health and Families has stressed that “measures like that are necessary because we are in a third wave that differs in its virulence from the first and second” and trusts that “the Ministry of Health will reconsider the refusal ” . As you will recall, the Ministry of Health authorized the regions a maximum of two hours to play with a delay or an early curfew, both at the beginning and at the end.
-The counselor, in addition, has asked the central government to reflect on the possibility of applying a home confinement in the face of the exponential increase in cases; that the be prioritized vaccination of people over 80 years of age in their own homes ; and that a framework strategy be worked on to take measures in all the Autonomous Communities in the most cohesive way possible.

Andalusia may tighten restrictions this Friday due to the increase in coronavirus infections: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es}
Updated: 01/13/2021 13:33
-The committee of experts that advises the Andalusian Government on the coronavirus pandemic will decide this Friday the 15th to “tighten” the current restrictions in the face of the “worrying” increase in infections and hospital admissions that is occurring in recent days in the community.
-This was announced this Wednesday, in statements to Canal Sur Radio, collected by Europa Press, the Minister of Health and Families, Jesús Aguirre, who has indicated that the data is “worrying”, with an exponential increase in the accumulated incidence for every 100,000 inhabitants, which yesterday stood at 314 cases. He added that there is also a significant increase in hospital admissions , which in the coming days may mean admissions to the ICU and deaths.
-He insisted that the entire Andalusian Government is very concerned about the evolution of the pandemic in Andalusia in recent days and added that, although we are “moderately well” compared to the rest of Spain , “that cannot be consolation.” And it is necessary to be correct in making decisions in the face of a foreseeable deterioration of the situation.
-In this sense, he said that this Friday the Advisory Committee on high-impact public health alerts will meet in Andalusia to decide “more restrictive measures” than those adopted last week, which will, affect in all probability, the “Mobility”.
*Changes in the measures against the coronavirus*
-After a Christmas in which the measures to contain the pandemic were relaxed – interprovincial and community mobility was opened, commerce was allowed to open normally and the hotel industry until ten thirty with some restrictions from six to eight-, last week control measures were reintroduced .
-Thus, as announced by the President of the Board, Juanma Moreno, interprovincial mobility and between municipalities is maintained right now -except in Campo de Gibraltar- but the community is closed to unjustified entries and exits. This is something that is expected to change this Friday. They have already warned on more than one occasion from the Andalusian Government that one of the first measures could be the perimeter closure of the provinces or, even, of the municipalities.
-This would mean, de facto, a return to the situation that prevailed in Andalusia until before Christmas. Then, it should be remembered, shops had to close at six in the afternoon, except for essential ones, and, in addition, it was not allowed, except for just cause, to leave the municipalities.
-Because in addition, the curfew, which was delayed at eleven o’clock during Christmas, is again at ten as before the holidays. This reinforces the idea that Andalusia is heading towards a situation similar to that which existed in the community at the beginning of December. The difference, the statements of the Andalusian Government seem to point out, seems to be in the trade, which could maintain longer hours for now than before Christmas. The hotel business has closed again at six in the afternoon – except for coffee shops and the like , which can open without serving alcohol until eight.
(In other sources I have seen it suggested that the curfew may be changed, to begin at 9pm rather than 10pm, and that travel between municipalities will again be prohibited . -Ed.)

Covid in Scotland- Tightening of lockdown rules announced: Covid restrictions around takeaway and click and collect services in Scotland are to tighten. Only shops selling essential items – such as clothing, footwear, baby equipment, homeware and books – will be allowed to offer click and collect. Collections must also be outdoors, with appointments staggered to avoid queuing. And takeaways can no longer allow customers indoors, and must instead operate from a hatch or doorway. They also include a ban on drinking alcohol outdoors in level four areas – which includes mainland Scotland and some islands – meaning takeaway pints cannot be consumed on the street or in places such as parks. Finally, the first minister said the wording of the stay at home law will be altered to “close an apparent loophole” by preventing people from leaving home for an essential purpose and then remaining outdoors for non-essential reasons.

Only 7 positives confirmed during mass testing in Velez-Malaga: 502 people were tested, around 50 per cent on those randomly selected by the Junta de Andalucia’s Ministry of Health.

Three days of strikes may be called for ITV vehicle testing stations in Andalucía: The UGT union in Andalucía has called for three days of strike action at all ITV vehicle testing stations stations in Andalucía on 25, 26 and 27 January if negotiations with the management company, Veiasa, fail.
“The problem of delays in appointments to take the ITV in Andalucía has not yet been resolved and the average delay time to inspect a vehicle is between two and five months in most stations,” said the union.
According to UGT the lack of personnel is the main reason for this delay, with a shortage of 450 workers across Andalucía.
The appointment delays at the regional government-owned but privately-operated test centres have considerably worsened during the coronavirus pandemic. Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/local/202101/13/three-days-strikes-called-20210113183345.html

 

British drivers in Europe to escape speed camera fines (and vice versa): The UK’s departure from the EU means British drivers snared by speed cameras on roads in Europe will no longer be sent fines. And those Britons, resident in the EU, who return to the UK in foreign registered cars will also avoid fines.
With such big sums of money at stake it’s no surprise some EU countries are intent on negotiating bilateral agreements with the UK to ensure contact details are shared in future.
British drivers who are pulled over by local police in the EU for speeding or other offences will still have to pay their fines, however.

Bugs Head for European Menus After Mealworms Get Green Light:
Dried yellow mealworm, the larval form of the mealworm beetle, is safe for human consumption in both its whole form and as a powder additive, the European Union’s food watchdog said Wednesday, ruling on an application by French insect farmer EAP Group SAS – Micronutris, now known as Agronutris.
The European Food Safety Authority’s opinion is a first step before officials consider whether to approve sales of snacks, protein bars, cookies and other foods containing the bugs as ingredients.
This is the first risk assessment of insects as novel food by Parma, Italy-based EFSA, which has another 14 pending applications for bugs — from crickets to grasshoppers. The watchdog also said allergic reactions to the mealworms are possible, so more research needs to be done.
Europe is at the forefront of the burgeoning insect-startup scene, identifying bugs as part of its sustainable food agenda. EU authorities have poured money into research and factories, and the bloc already allows fish, dogs and cats to eat insect meal. PHOTO:Cyril Marcilhacy/Bloomberg

COVID-19 VIRUS HOTLINE: Information hotline for those who suspect they may have the coronavirus. Anyone experiencing symptoms should stay at home and dial 900 400 061 or 955 545 060 – and only call 112 in an emergency.

When you need reliable info consult The Citizens Advice Bureau Spain at https://www.citizensadvice.org.es/…or the website or Facebook page of your local Town Hall (Ayuntamiento).

For the new official Covid restrictions effective 00:01 Monday, Jan. 11th, translated directly from the Junta de Andalucia site, see the news section in the Saturday issue of DigameXtra, https://digamextra.com/2021/01/09/digamextra-no-1835-saturday-jan-9th-2021/

 

What’s On

Tell them you saw it on DigameXtra! Tell your favourite establishments to post on DigameXtra to get next-day publicity!

Due to the Covid restrictions, to avoid disappointment I suggest you call to confirm events and times before the event. -Ed.

Bands & Acts: Please submit your gig promos, don’t rely on venues to do all your publicity! Many venues and bookers mistakenly think a quick Fakebook post is sufficient to promote a gig, and evidently placing posters out in the streets is a fading tradition, so you are missing out on many potential attendees. Most of those FB posts only have a few likes so obviously are not reaching many people. DigameXtra sends out over 4100 email issues everyday to subscribers, and the website gets another 800 visits per day. That is way better exposure than you are getting in FB posts!!!

Pre-planning your funeral is a thoughtful and responsible way to show you care about your family.
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.

Golden Leaves Funeral Plans aims to support grieving families during these tumultuous times. Since our inception in 1984, we have partnered with a widespread network of funeral directors across the UK and Europe.
Purchasing a funeral plan with Golden Leaves enables you to plan, design and pay for your funeral services in advance.

Deal between Spain and UK plans to eliminate Gibraltar border checkpoint: The document describing this framework agreement, which EL PAÍS has seen, contemplates demolishing any “physical barrier” between the British Overseas Territory and La Línea in Cádiz.
The “Proposed framework for a future EU-UK legal instrument setting out Gibraltar’s future relationship with the EU” also talks about implementing a double-key system (controlled by both Gibraltarian and Spanish officers) for entry through the port and airport of Gibraltar, which would in effect be joining the Schengen area, a European free-travel zone made up of 26 countries (22 from the EU, plus Norway, Switzerland, Iceland and Liechtenstein). As a part of this zone, the international boundary would no longer be at La Verja, but at Gibraltar’s port and airport. The UK is not a part of Schengen.

Andalucia Road Closures, Truck Restrictions & Chain Requirements: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated 01/11/2021 11:54
-Up to nine highways present on the morning of this Monday, January 11, cut their circulation in the Andalusian autonomous community as a result of the storm, which forces the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) to keep the black level activated on them, which means that they are impassable, while in another five the use of chains or winter tires -red level- is mandatory, and in another nine the circulation of trucks and articulated vehicles is prohibited.
-Specifically, at the black level – that is, the road is impassable – there are two roads in the province of Almería, one in Cádiz, another five in Granada and one in Seville, according to information from the DGT consulted by Europe Press with updated data at 9.00 am this Monday.
-The impassable roads in the province of Almería are the A-5405 and the A-5406. In the first case, traffic in both directions is cut off between kilometer points 19 and 28, near Las Tres Villas, due to snowfall, and in the second -on the A-5406-, between kilometers 0 and 5 in both ways, as it passes through the municipality of Serón as a result of the ice.
-In the province of Cádiz, the CA-9104 is impassable between kilometer points 0 and 13.3 in both directions, at the height of Grazalema , due to snowfall, while in the province of Seville the same occurs on the SE-179, between kilometers 0 and 43.75 in both directions, in the municipality of Cazalla de la Sierra as a result of the snowfall.
-In the province of Granada there are five roads with impassable sections, all of them attached to the provincial road service of the Junta de Andalucía.
-It is, specifically, the A-317 in both directions at the height of La Puebla de Don Fadrique , between kilometers 59 and 90; the A-337 between kilometers 11 and 36 as it passes through La Calahorra in both directions; the A-395 in both directions between kilometers 32 and 39 at the height of Monachil ; the A-4301 from kilometer 0 in an increasing direction of traffic, and the A-4302 in both directions between kilometers 0 and 4.1, in both cases as it passes through Huéscar. In all cases, it is the snow that motivates these cuts.
-With the red level activated -which implies that the circulation of trucks, articulated vehicles and buses is prohibited, as well as that the use of chains or winter tires is mandatory- there are three roads in the province of Almería, which are the AL-3404 -between kilometers 13 and 23 in both directions at the height of Ohanes through snowfall-, the AL-4404 between kilometers 20 and 28 in both directions as it passes through Gérgal, through the ice, and the AL-5402 between the points kilometers 9 and 28 in increasing direction of traffic at the height of Bayárcal due to snowfall.
-In the province of Granada, the A-317 between kilometers 91 and 113 in both directions at the height of La Puebla de Don Fadrique is found in this situation; and the A-338 between kilometers 22 and 45.3 in both directions at La Calahorra, in both cases due to snowfall.
-Yellow level. Finally, the DGT keeps the yellow level activated on nine roads in the community, which implies that is the circulation of trucks and articulated vehicles prohibited.
-In the province of Almería, the A-1178 is in this situation – between kilometer points 32 and 16 in both directions in the mountain pass Las Menas by ice-; the AL-3102 in both directions between kilometer points 18 and 42 in Velefique due to snowfall; the AL-5407 between kilometers 0 and 8 in both directions in Bacares by ice; the AL-9100 between kilometers 0 and 5 in both directions at the height of Vélez-Blanco; the AL-9101 between kilometer points 0 and 15 in both directions as it passes through María, and the A-9102 between kilometers 0 and 15 in both directions at the height of Vélez-Blanco, in all these cases, by ice.
-Finally, in the province of Granada, the roads with a yellow level in some of its sections are the A-4128 between kilometers 0 and 5 in both directions at the height of Cástaras; the A-4130 between points 11 and 27 at Torvizcón in both directions, and the A-4132 between kilometers 25 and 41 as it passes through Órgiva in both directions, in all cases due to snowfall.

Snow and ice disrupt lives, vaccine rollout in Spain: The Spanish capital of Madrid was still trying to get back on its feet Monday after a 50-year record snowfall that paralysed large parts of central Spain and hampered the delivery of coronavirus vaccines.
The blizzard dumped over 50 centimeters (20 inches) of snow in some areas and a cold front was turning mounds of fluffy white into sheets of ice and crusted drifts. At least 700 roads were still not clear enough, half of them unfit for driving without chains.
Temperatures were expected to drop to minus 11 degrees Celsius (12 degrees Fahrenheit) in a large swathe of the country later Monday, according to the national AEMET weather agency, prompting authorities to urge people to exercise caution. Full article:

WhatsApp Scam Alert- A scam impersonates WhatsApp support to steal verification keys: {This is an edited version, not the full article, translated from https://www.laprovincia.es}
A new scam that has been distributed by the WhatsApp messaging application pretends to be the technical service of the platform to obtain the verification keys of the users, informing of an alleged illegitimate login.
In the fraudulent message, cybercriminals try to deceive the user by stating that “a WhatsApp account has recently been registered with his number.” “We cannot determine if the login is legitimate,” they add.
Under this pretext and threatening a supposed “indefinite suspension”, the scammers seek to obtain the six-digit verification codes of WhatsApp that are sent by SMS to identify users.
WhatsApp never writes to users on WhatsApp personally, and if it does (for global ads, but it is very rare) it always shows a green verification indicator visible, as WABetaInfo has recalled, something that was not present in this fraud.

Fury at ‘pathetic nit-picking’ as Dutch police strip the ham out of lorry driver’s lunch and tell them ‘Welcome to Brexit’ in import crackdown:
Dutch police officers have sparked fury after office were filmed laughing at a British truck driver as the officials confiscated the man’s ham sandwiches in line with post-Brexit import rules.
‘Welcome to the Brexit, sir,’ one of the officers says mockingly in the video of the incident, as the driver pleads: ‘Can you take the meat and leave me the bread?’
Footage from Dutch TV showed the border officials confiscating sandwiches and other foodstuffs from drivers entering the Netherlands from the UK.
The EU does not allow for meat, meat products, milk or dairy products to be brought in from countries outside the union for ‘personal consumption’.
