What’s On

Tell them you saw it on DigameXtra!

Spain’s Malaga on the Costa del Sol plans to reopen popular tourist attraction Caminito del Rey on May 29: Tickets will go on sale online from May 14 if the province meets Phase 1 of de-escalation, confirmed Francisco Salado, President of the Diputacion of Malaga. However, in order to meet social distancing measures, only half of the amount of tickets that are usually sold this time of year, will actually go on sale – limiting visitors to just 150,000 by the end of the year. (See News Article Section, there are some doubts Malaga will leave Phase Zero with the rest of Andalucia. -Ed.)  Source: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2020/05/06/spains-malaga-on-the-costa-del-sol-plans-to-reopen-popular-tourist-attraction-caminito-del-rey-on-may-29/

 Restaurant & Market Deliveries and Open Services

If your business is allowed to operate during the lockdown, send in your details for inclusion to let Readers know. If you know for certain a restaurant is still delivering or offering take-away, have them send in the details including Name of Restaurant, Location, Phone Number, Hours and a photo of their menu (optional). Unfortunately I have received some inaccurate info from well meaning 3rd parties which has caused problems. So now these businesses must submit their own posts, although I will in this case allow them to post even if they are not subscribers. -Ed.

Lockdown Extension Nearly Fails To Pass Vote, Sanchez Confronted By Critics: Sánchez’s request for an additional period until May 24 was met with growing objections from the opposition, and the prime minister, who heads a minority government in coalition with junior partner Unidas Podemos, was forced into last-minute negotiations to secure the simple majority of more yes than no votes he needed in the 350-strong Congress.
But his words did not appear to convince PP leader Casado, who announced that because of the government’s most recent concessions, his 88 lawmakers would abstain rather than cast no votes. Casado was highly critical of the government during his speech, telling Sánchez that “the exceptional situation does not allow for a constitutional dictatorship.” The conservative leader accused Sánchez of lying about the causes of the severe impact of the Covid-19 disease in Spain, and of manipulating its economic and social consequences.
“You are trying to craft a tale that’s outside reality in order to arrive at this unsettling new normality that you’re trying to sell us. Don’t bring us another extension in 15 days, because we won’t approve it. We do not support this overstepping of legal boundaries that has turned into a covert state of exception,” said Casado
Vox leader warned Sánchez that he will have to prepare for class action suits because of his mishandling of the crisis, and suggesting that the prime minister might soon face a vote of no confidence in Congress.
“You, Mr Sánchez, are trying to blackmail this chamber into renewing a power that you have abused. Maintaining the state of alarm saves neither lives nor jobs. What would save lives and jobs would be a change of government,” said the leader of Spain’s far-right party, which is the third largest group in Congress.
Sánchez counted on 178 affirmative ballots, which was an absolute majority. There were 75 votes against and 97 abstentions. Full article: https://english.elpais.com/politics/2020-05-06/spanish-congress-approves-fourth-extension-to-state-of-alarm.html

 

De-Escalation: Costa del Sol’s Malaga and Granada May Not Pass to Phase 1 This Monday Due Their High Levels of New Coronavirus Cases. {It is possible} 10 per cent of Andalucia will remain in Phase 0 of the de-escalation plan, specifically the regions of Granada and Malaga are the most likely to remain in this phase, as they are the worst affected areas of the autonomous community and have more than 10 infections per 100,000 inhabitants.
The Andalucian government has assured that “90 per cent of the health districts” from the community are ready to go begin Phase 1 of the de-escalation next Monday, May 11.
This means that there are a few areas that will not be able to do so. Malaga, Granada are highly probable contenders that are most likely to remain in Phase 0.
The Minister of Health and Families, Jesus Aguirre, will send Andalucia’s proposal Wednesday before 2.00pm. This proposal will evaluate the regions and determine whether they are ready to pass onto the next phase, however, he did not want to reveal which areas were going to stay in Phase 0. Those in Phase 0 will still suffer from restrictions on bars, shops and other services.

Costa del Sol’s Malaga registers sharp spike in new Covid-19 cases accounting for 42% of Spain’s Andalucia total: 103 people were diagnosed with the disease in the province on Wednesday, out of a total of 245 in the whole region – accounting for 42% of the number of new cases registered across Andalucia and 15% of Spain’s total (685). That’s a sharp spike considering that only 10 new cases were registered in Malaga yesterday, with 20 on Monday and 16 on Sunday.

Spain’s Andalucia & Costa del Sol ask Government for changes to lockdown ‘outing’ timetable due to soaring temperatures: Currently a parent can take out up to three children for an hour between the hours of 12pm and 7pm, but given the increasing heat the Junta is proposing a few changes to the existing lockdown ‘outing’ timetable.
It is proposing that families be allowed out with children between 12pm and 2pm and then again between 7pm and 9pm. The original morning timetable for those between the ages of 14 and 70 – to do a solo sports activity or go for a walk – between 6am-10am, will be maintained. However, it proposes that their evening exercise slot should be moved to 9pm until midnight (instead of the current 8pm-11pm).
The elderly (over 70s) will also continue to maintain their morning timetable of 10am-12pm, but they would lose their hour in the evening of between 7pm and 8pm. The Junta is also proposing that aquatic sports take place between 2pm and 6pm.

3 Russian doctors fall from hospital windows during pandemic: Two Russian doctors have died and another was seriously injured in falls from hospital windows after they reportedly came under pressure over working conditions in the coronavirus pandemic.
The exact circumstances of the separate incidents in the last two weeks remain unclear and they are being investigated by police, but they underscore the enormous strains that Russian doctors and nurses have faced during the outbreak.
Reports said two of the doctors had protested their working conditions and the third was being blamed after her colleagues contracted the virus. Full article: https://apnews.com/62bab5b82454138c7c92d00ae6c2cb29

 

Astronomers find the closest black hole to Earth, hints of more: European astronomers have found the closest black hole to Earth yet, so near that the two stars dancing with it can be seen by the naked eye.
Of course, close is relative on the galactic scale. This black hole is about 1,000 light-years away and each light-year is 5.9 trillion miles (9.5 trillion kilometers). But in terms of the cosmos and even the galaxy, it is in our neighborhood, said European Southern Observatory astronomer Thomas Rivinius, who led the study published Wednesday in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics.

Dutch restaurant trials glass booths for dining amid coronavirus: A Dutch restaurant has come up with an idea on how to offer classy outdoor dining in the age of coronavirus: small glass cabins built for two or three people, creating intimate cocoons on a public patio.
Waiters wear gloves and transparent face shields, and use a long board to bring dishes into the glass cabins to ensure minimal physical contact with customers.
While the concept is currently being trialed only for family and friends of staff from the ETEN restaurant, which is part of the Mediamatic arts centre, it certainly looks glamorous, as diners enjoy candle-lit meals with a waterside view.
