DoctorLaptop’s Re-Opening Special: Full Laptop Maintenance Service €50
If you rely on your computer and want it running at peak performance an annual professional maintenance servicing is necessary. You wouldn’t drive your car till it runs out of oil before servicing it, would you? I do the most comprehensive cleaning and tune-up possible: verify all System files replacing any found to be corrupt, test all hardware and do hard disk sector repairs if needed, use 5 tool malware/adware/spyware removal protocol, clean out junk files/logs/history/etc., update Windows or MacOS+all drivers+programs and finally optimize your settings and registry for fastest overall performance. Heavily infected comps or those showing error messages need a repair, not a maintenance service. Hard disks of 1000Gb or more add €10 and may require longer to complete.

Local bars and restaurants torn over whether to open their terraces from Monday: Not every bar owner is keen to open their doors at the first opportunity. Some areas already in Phase 1 report only 30% of bars and cafes have reopened. Tara Tallon, owner of Pat Murphy’s pub in Torremolinos, has decided not to open her bar on Monday because it would not be financially viable. The Olive Tree in Coín will also keep its doors shut for at least another two weeks, as owner Tina Mattin is putting her staff and customers’ health first.

France to introduce quarantine for travelers from Spain: France will impose a 14-day quarantine on travelers coming from Spain in response to the Spanish government’s decision to impose such a measure on all international visitors, an official at the French presidential palace said on Thursday. “France will impose a 14-day quarantine from the moment Spain imposes the measure, based on the principal of reciprocity,” the presidential official said. On Tuesday, the Spanish government announced that it would impose a quarantine on all visitors to the country, including French residents and other residents of the European Union, in a bid to control the coronavirus outbreak.

Antibody study shows just 5% of Spaniards have contracted the coronavirus: The Spanish overall figure of 5% is in line with studies in other European countries that showed a prevalence of 4% to 5%, far below the rate that would provide the population with so-called herd immunity, and which experts place at 60% at the very least.
If the percentage of infected people who eventually die is around 1.1%, as the study suggests, the cost in human lives of herd immunity would be between 200,000 and 300,000, making the method unacceptable. Epidemiologists consulted by this newspaper said that social distancing measures must remain in place until a vaccine becomes available.

Portugal to move to next phase of reopening: Portugal will transition to its second phase of scaling back confinement measures following the positive government assessment of the evolution of its COVID-19 outbreak.
The first stage of the reopening process began with small shops and businesses such as hairdressers. Phase two starting Monday will include restaurants, bars, cafes and other shops opening under capacity limitations and social distancing restrictions.

MALAGA MOVING TO PHASE 1, MADRID & BARCA DENIED: The provinces of Malaga and Granada have officially now been granted Phase 1 measures and join the rest of Andalucia. The provinces will have to wait till Monday May 18 before this decree comes into effect.
Madrid region and Barcelona to remain in Phase 0, but with some coronavirus restrictions eased:
The government has offered a few relief measures to Madrid and Barcelona, such as allowing businesses to open without appointments, but keeping street cafes closed and banning social gatherings. This move has been dubbed by the media as Phase 0.5
Source: https://english.elpais.com/society/2020-05-15/madrid-region-and-barcelona-to-remain-in-phase-0-but-with-some-coronavirus-restrictions-eased.html

What you can do in a Phase One area:
The government has published details of what is permitted for people living in the regions and provinces during Phase One in its Boletín Oficial del Estado (BOE). Please note that regional governments will be adapting some of these measures for their own specific areas:
The key measures for Phase One are summarised as follows:
-Up to 10 people can meet for social gatherings, either outside or in someone’s home (also at restaurant and bar terraces – see below), but social distancing measures must be respected between people who do not already live together
-Small businesses can open and serve customers, as long as health and social distancing measures are in place
-Restaurants, bars and cafés can open their outside terraces at 50% capacity
-Hotels and tourist accommodation can open, but communal areas must remain closed
-Places of worship can open at 30% capacity
-Non-professional sports are allowed for activities not involving physical contact or use of changing room facilities
-Outdoor markets can operate but the stalls must be set out with spacing between
-Cultural events for up to 30 people can be held indoors at 30% of the venue’s capacity
-Cultural events for up to 200 people can be held outdoors
-Museums can open at 30% capacity
-Funerals can be held with ‘limited numbers’ of mourners
-Timetables for taking walks and doing physical exercise remain in place to avoid crowds, although the regions will adapt them according to factors such as hot weather. We understand that people are allowed to visit establishments that are reopening at other times. This was already in place for certain shops and services (hairdressers, hardware stores etc) opening up for customers by appointment only
-Rural tourism (possibly forest walks and trekking) is also permitted during this period, yet it should be in limited groups and with the same social distancing measures for people who do not live together
-It is still compulsory to wear face masks on all public transport in Spain, whatever phase the region or province is in
-The BOE also recommends that people continue to work from home where possible. If at a workplace, there should be a distance of two metres between employees. Arriving and leaving should be staggered.
-Please also note:
-The official measures are that citizens must not travel from province to province, but travel within a province or healthcare zone is allowed.
-Whilst travelling within a province that is in Phase One, people are allowed to travel in a private vehicle with other people they live with and without restrictions. Vehicles (with the capacity) will be permitted to be occupied by up to nine people. However, If the occupants of a vehicle do not live together, a limit of one person in each row of seats applies, and they will have to wear face masks.
-NB: the government has changed the measures from midnight on Sunday 10 May for driving within a municipality for areas still in Phase Zero. The same measures as above will apply.
-Journeys in private vehicles within a province can be made for any of the activities permitted above (ie, they do not need to be only for essential items)
-Journeys to second residences and hotels are also allowed, providing they are in the same province. If they are in a different province, trips will not be allowed until towards the end of June.

By supporting our sponsors you help support DigameXtra!

These banners do NOT indicate the business is open during the Alarm Period. They are simply promos like a roadside billboard. I see no reason to remove them. By now everyone should know non-essential travel is banned. Call Sponsors for their current status as most, but not all, must be closed. -Ed.

All current Sponsors have received extensions to their Sponsorship expiration dates to compensate for the lockdown time we are experiencing. -Ed.
