Easter Holiday CHAOS: ALL Spanish airports may face indefinite strike from April 20. Holidaymakers are facing flight chaos because of a massive strike by 60,000 ground handling staff set to go ahead over the holiday period. Flight industry unions in Spain say they are still willing to negotiate over pay and conditions but if no agreement is reached, they are calling for a walkout from Easter Saturday, April 20th. The strike would affect all Spanish airports, the unions have confirmed.

New killer mould, Candida Auris, spreads worldwide: Over the last five years, it has hit a neonatal unit in Venezuela, swept through a hospital in Spain (Valencia), forced a prestigious British medical center to shut down its intensive care unit, and taken root in India, Pakistan and South Africa. It kills over 40% of those infected! Source documents shown in the video are the official Center for Disease Control site and the NY Times, so it’s probably accurate.
