Fix For Subscription Problems For iCloud.com Email Users: Several readers using Apple’s iCloud email service have reported they have stopped receiving daily email issues. They are still subscribed, and their daily issues are being sent, but iCloud is blocking the delivery of new blog issues into the subscriber’s email. The problem is due to Apple vs Google compatibility issues. Each blames the other. If this applies to you, you must contact iCloud email support by phone (UK 0800 107 6285 / ES 900812703) or via the “Help/Support” in your email (phone is better) and request they unblock the https://digamextra.com WordPress blog by “whitelisting” this address: donotreply@wordpress.com
It is a common problem that the Apple iCloud support workers are familiar with. In this manner this problem has been fixed by many Apple users who are DigameXtra followers. Until you get this fixed you can visit the blog directly at https://digamextra.com, and you are still subscribed, so you may continue to make submissions.

Golden Leaves Funeral Plans:
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.
Handling all of these challenges is difficult enough in one’s normal circumstances, but having to go through it while abroad is an enormous burden.
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.
As one of the leading providers of expat prepaid funeral plans in Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, Balearic Islands, and the Canary Islands, we make sure to adequately support your family in the time of greatest need.
If you are an expat family in need of prepaid funeral services please contact Ruth on phone or whats app + 34 693 715 718

Vetiver Spain in Sayalonga is now fully open!
We have started to receive clients but by appointment only. It is wonderful to finally be able to have visitors! We are of course following the legal guidelines regarding masks and social distancing.
The summer is a great time to plant Vetiver as this plant is indigenous to India. Vetiver loves the heat of summer to grow. Vetiver is often used as a wind barrier in the fall and winter months. Vetiver is the best plant to stabilise erosion prone locations before the first fall rains come. We have plenty of plants in stock for either pickup or delivery via the Spanish Correos.
It is always a great way to spend a day in the garden.
We also have Moringa seeds, Lemon Grass, Moringa seedlings and now our new product, Organic Moringa Powder. If you do not know the medicinal powers of Moringa you can check it out here. https://www.vetiverspain.org/moringa-oleifera-.html
This month we have some specials for both pickup and shipments.

New measures Andalucía- The Junta restricts family gatherings to six people and closes Casariche: {Full article, translated from https://seville.abc.es, updated 29Sep20 16:52h}
-The Board begins the screening with massive tests in eleven localities with high incidence in Seville, Jaén, Almería, Córdoba and Málaga
-Coronavirus Andalusia: fewer infections than a week ago but mortality increases
-The Andalusian Government recommends reducing family gatherings to six people in the community.
-It has been decided to restrict mobility in the Sevillian town of Casariche due to the high incidence of the coronavirus pandemic. Thus, during the next 14 days, residents will not be able to leave their homes except for health care, attendance at educational centers, renewal of permits, bank or notarial procedures, attendance at official tests and exams or force majeure. This measure joins those that the City Council can take in terms of capacity, meetings, establishment hours, etc.
The closure of this municipality aims to stop the wave of infections by Covid-19 that is increasing instead of decreasing. Casariche has a rate of 254 positives in the last 14 days and 146 in the last seven, which shows an increase in infections.
This Sevillian town is the one with the toughest measures to fight the pandemic, but there are eleven other municipalities that also have a rate of more than 500 cases per one hundred thousand inhabitants. Likewise, a massive screening of rapid antigen tests will be carried out in eleven municipalities : Pulpí, in Almería; Almodóvar del Río, in Córdoba: Jamilena, Los Villares and Linares, in Jaén; Villaverde del Río, Arahal, Paradas and La Campana, in Seville and Sierra de Yeguas and Villanueva de la Concepción, in Malaga.
At the moment, there will be no applied special prevention measures in the Cordovan town of Lucena due to a better evolution of the pandemic in recent days. The same happens with Utrera, a Sevillian town whose mayor has asked the Board for more restrictive measures. However, epidemiological criteria do not recommend new drastic measures, beyond the restrictions that are being approved by the city council led by José María Villalobos.
-The restrictions on the number of people recommended by the Andalusian Government, which at the moment are not mandatory, do not apply to the hotel industry or to weddings, baptisms and communions that continue to maintain the same limits.
The reason for this discrimination has been explained by the Health Minister, Jesús Aguirre, who has detailed that “80% of new infections occur in family homes , in living rooms at home.” Although he has detailed that it is not ruled out to continue taking restrictive measures, “if the epidemiological situation demands it.”
-Isolated: The Health Minister has also detailed the number of people who are isolated by the coronavirus. According to official data, there are 11,555 people isolated in their homes for having tested positive for coronavirus, although they have not needed hospitalization.
In addition, there are another 26,321 Andalusians who are in preventive isolation at home waiting to obtain the PCR results or because they have had some contact with positives and this has been recommended.
As advanced by the Minister of the Presidency and spokesman for the Andalusian Government, Elías Bendodo , after the meeting of the Governing Council, the provincial committees will decide, based on the criteria of the health experts, measures in the most affected municipalities for 14 days based on the evolution of the pandemic and the epidemiological variables specific to each locality. Salud maintains continuous “monitoring” in each of the Andalusian municipalities.
-After advancing these measures, Elías Bendodo publicly requested the central government to apply a single criterion to apply special preventive measures against the advance of the pandemic for all of Spain.  Source, Spanish: https://sevilla.abc.es/andalucia/sevi-coronavirus-andalucia-nuevas-medidas-andalucia-junta-restringe-reuniones-familiares-seis-personas-y-cierra-casariche-202009291346_noticia.html

 

Is the Halloween nightmare of dealing with red tape in the pandemic the real “Trick or Treat”? : Many would agree with this comparison. Telephones always busy or not answered, a lack of available appointments and complicated procedures online. People are coming up against a barrage of problems with administration, as the authorities struggle to come to terms with the ‘new normal’.

Moonette Aromatic Skincare for 40+
*We are a Torrox based company specializing in the creation of formulas which help prevent premature skin ageing*
As our skin is the first layer of our defence against microbial infections, ultraviolet radiation and environmental contamination it plays a vital role in our lives. As we grow older however, our skin will become thinner, more sensitive, less firm and require the use of treatments containing specific ingredients to the care of treating mature skin.
Recognizing this need we have created a range of formulas which help reduce the appearance of the signs of ageing by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, and also by eliminating blemishes and imperfection.
At Moonette, we are passionate about health, beauty and plants. Your skin will benefit from the properties of botanic essential oils combined with a selection of nutrients for deep hydration and cell revitalization, all sourced from the finest natural ingredients.
Naturally, we care about our planet and feel the need to help reduce the sheer volumes of plastics waste that are generated daily around the globe. Presently, we are minimizing the usage of plastic materials in our production while seeking alternative forms of packaging. To help reduce pollution we are asking all customers to recycle or reuse their Moonette skincare containers, and offering:
* A discount on future purchases to clients recycling containers

Community garden/allotment/huerto?: Are there any people out there who would be interested in getting together with others to find/rent a piece of land to start growing fruit/vegetables/flowers, on a co-operative basis, using permaculture methods? I am interested in being involved in something like this, in the Torrox costa area. Or does something similar already exist? I am interested in Torrox costa area because I do not have a car and don’t want one. So have to find somewhere accessible by public transport or walking.

Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating. If there is no verifiable source provided with the info, while it may contain some degree of truth (as do all good lies) you should always have a healthy degree of scepticism. -Ed.

Fix For Subscription Problems For iCloud.com Email Users: Several readers using Apple’s iCloud email service have reported they have stopped receiving daily email issues. They are still subscribed, and their daily issues are being sent, but iCloud is blocking the delivery of new blog issues into the subscriber’s email. The problem is due to Apple vs Google compatibility issues. Each blames the other. If this applies to you, you must contact iCloud email support by phone (UK 0800 107 6285 / ES 900812703) or via the “Help/Support” in your email (phone is better) and request they unblock the https://digamextra.com WordPress blog by “whitelisting” this address: donotreply@wordpress.com
It is a common problem that the Apple iCloud support workers are familiar with. In this manner this problem has been fixed by many Apple users who are DigameXtra followers. Until you get this fixed you can visit the blog directly at https://digamextra.com, and you are still subscribed, so you may continue to make submissions.

Recommendations & Requests

 

Recommendation for Car Clean Malaga: Two years ago we got Warren to clean and valet our two cars. We were so pleased with the results that we asked him to work on the cars again this year after the summer heat had thoroughly baked on the dirt. Normal car washing wouldn’t get it off.
Once again we are delighted with the work he has carried out. Both cars (one of which is very elderly) look superb with the paintwork restored to a lovely shine and minor scratches and dents removed. The interiors look like new and the attention to detail is superb – not a single nook or cranny is missed. Warren collects and returns the car, offers an extremely prompt and efficient service and gives a quote before any work is undertaken.

Juanma Moreno will approve new measures in Andalucia to stop the coronavirus: {Full article translated from https://seville.abc.es} The president of the Board meets with the scientific committee on Monday and on Tuesday he will take the measures in the Governing Council .
The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, announced this Saturday that “new decisions” will be made on Monday in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic in the community and in some municipalities that are having a higher incidence of this disease.
During his speech at the closing of the Council of Mayors of the Andalusian PP that is being held in Malaga, Juanma Moreno has expressed his concern about the evolution of the pandemic and has justified these new decisions on the need to anticipate an increase in infections.
“Prevention is always better than cure,” said the Andalusian chief executive, who explained that the technical-scientific committee will meet next Monday, and on Tuesday the Governing Council will approve the necessary measures.
Moreno has indicated that there are provinces that “have stopped being protagonists in this sad ranking such as Almería”, but others such as Malaga, which was already at a high level of positives, and “in a special way” Seville, have increased the number of infections .
He has argued the need to anticipate the evolution of the disease to “try not to get run over by this great coronavirus storm”, a policy in which he has framed the acquisition of one million rapid PCR tests with 99% reliability , and another million “in the process of buying”, which will allow to have results in fifteen or twenty minutes.
The Andalusian president has appealed to the unity of all political forces and institutions by stating that they all have to work “in a network and not from ideological trenches.”
After regretting that Spain is in the news for having the highest infection rate in the European Union, he has indicated that Andalusia is “still” in the middle of the national average, something that, however, does not reassure him, as it “worries” the evolution of the pandemic.
For this reason, a contingency plan has been put in place in the hospitals to house, if necessary, 3,000 hospitalized patients, but at the same time, another plan is being worked on to be able to accommodate 4,500 admitted if necessary.
Likewise, he has referred to the situation of educational centers, where despite the “adverse circumstances, 93% do not have any incidence of coronavirus.”
Moreno has highlighted the importance of all citizens “taking seriously” the fight against the pandemic and has asked for caution in family and friends gatherings because they are appointments in which “one feels more confident.”

Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating. If there is no verifiable source provided with the info, while it may contain some degree of truth (as do all good lies) you should always have a healthy degree of scepticism. -Ed.

 

Health Minister calls for areas with more than 500 Covid-19 cases per 100,000 inhabitants to be isolated, 5 villages in Malaga Province qualify: He also admitted, however, that the Health Ministry can only offer recommendations, and that regional authorities must “decide”.
The 14-day cumulative case incidence figure per 100,000 inhabitants in Andalucía on Friday was 158 and in Malaga province 186.
If the 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants advice was followed for every municipality in the country, however, five villages in Malaga province would be closed: Guaro, Jimera de Líbar, Sayalonga, Serrato and Sierra de Yeguas.
Other municipalities with higher incidence rates in Malaga province on Friday were Marbella with 374, Coín with 352, and Ronda 327, among others. The rate for Malaga city was 146.

Cyclists will be allowed on new Guadalhorce estuary bridge: Crossing the bridge, when it opens Sunday, will be allowed by bicycle, said councillor for Mobility José del Río, at a maximum speed of 10 km/h with priority given to pedestrians at all times.
The opening of the bridge will not only save cyclists from crossing the river using the more dangerous road bridge, but also make it easier for people from Guadalmar and even Torremolinos to cycle into the city.

Recommendations & Requests

 

Car Hire Question: Does anybody recall using a car hire company based in the UK, called, I think, Malaga Car Hire? I used to phone a UK number, speak to a woman in Surrey, I think, pay in sterling, then pick the car up from Niza Car Hire at the roundabout near Malaga airport, with no additional charges, no pressure to buy additional insurance, no stress at all. The service was always excellent. I have not used them for several years, and wonder if they are still in business. I haven’t been able to find them on the internet, where “Malaga Car Hire” leads to a company based near the airport. Does anybody have any leads or contact details? Peter

Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating.

BREXIT Banking Update: There are no blanket answers; some banks may close some accounts, while other banks and account types will be unchanged. Until the new Post-Brexit EU/UK banking regulations are finalized there will continue to be questions. Contact your bank for info regarding your specific situation.
This article is the latest public info I could find from a reasonably respectable source on UK matters, updated Thursday afternoon, from the BBC. -Ed.
Lloyds Bank has written to 13,000 personal and business customers, saying it will no longer be able to offer banking services once the Brexit transition period ends on 31 December: Barclays, Barclaycard and Coutts –  are taking similar action.

Orca Attacks: Spain has temporarily banned sailboats from a stretch of its northwestern coast after several vessels were damaged in attacks by orcas, or killer whales, in recent weeks.
The week-long ban, which came into effect on Tuesday night, applies to sailboats under 15 metres.
The first attack was reported on August 19th, said the ministry. Since then there had been several more orca attacks against sailboats and small yachts, causing various degrees of damage to the vessels, mostly to their rudders. Full story:

Confusion over Spain’s plans to grant citizenship for descendants of International Brigades: During the past week, it was widely reported in both the British and Spanish press that the descendants of volunteers who fought in the International Brigade during the Spanish Civil War would be offered citizenship.
Yet when details of the draft bill were published, it appears that the proposal does not stretch to descendants, and includes only the International Brigade veterans themselves.
The misunderstanding stemmed from comments made by Pablo Iglesias. Tweeting last week, the Podemos leader and Deputy Prime Minister Pablo claimed that: “The descendants of the members of the International Brigades who fought for freedom and against fascism in Spain will be eligible for Spanish nationality. It was time for this government to say to these heroes and heroines of democracy: thank you for coming.”

Spanish Supreme Court rules food delivery riders are employees: The Spanish Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday that food delivery riders are employees, not self-employed workers. In recent years, some workers hired to deliver goods via apps like Glovo have been demanding recognition as salaried staff and petitioning for the corresponding rights, such as sick leave and paid holidays.
Glovo is one of the many companies to take advantage of what is known as the “gig economy,” a term that refers to workers who are self-employed and work temporary, flexible jobs such as, in this case, delivering food from a range of establishments to customers, or drive for transportation firms such as Uber, or deliver parcels for e-commerce giants like Amazon.

Police Chase Italian Pirate IPTV Subscribers: Police in Italy are reporting a large operation against a network involved in IPTV. The Guardia di Finanza says that 58 sites and 18 Telegram channels have been blocked while four IT experts with familiar nicknames have been referred for prosecution along with 1,000 subscribers of pirate IPTV services. GdF says work is now underway to identify around 1,000 pezzotto / IPTV subscribers – some local, some overseas – so that they can be prosecuted for breaches of copyright law and receiving stolen goods.

UK Bank Account Closure Update: It appears that banks are keeping their options open, only providing answers “as it stands now”, and are reserving the right to change their policies as the situation develops.
It’s important to stress that this is not all British banks, and not all types of account are affected.  Two readers have reported contacting their bank and being told their accounts will not be closed. One reader reported receiving a notice that  their credit-card was being cancelled. -Ed
-This article contains the latest responses from popular UK Banks when they were asked for their policies on account closures due to Brexit.
https://www.thelocal.es/20200922/how-post-brexit-bank-changes-could-affect-british-people-in-spain
– (Updated Wednesday) As the British government has so far failed to secure access to the EU banking scheme – known as passporting – after Brexit, UK banks are faced with complicated processes to gain financial licences with each of the EU’s 27 member states.
And it seems that for some this is just not worth the effort – leading to British people living around Europe getting letters saying their accounts would be closed or their credit cards withdrawn.

At Least 380 Whales Dead In Australia’s Largest Ever Mass Stranding: At least 380 pilot whales have died off the coast of Tasmania, in what experts are calling Australia’s largest recorded mass stranding event.
Nearly 500 whales have been stranded on a beach and two sandbars along the western coast of the island state.
Initial reports on Monday said that 270 whales had been stranded at three different sites, some of which had already died.

Spanish Gov’t Uses Grand Rhetoric to Claim Squatter Problem is an Urban Legend, Rejects Stronger Anti-squatter Measures: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} “What was illegally occupied 80 years ago was Spanish democracy” and it {VOX} seeks to create scaremongering around squatting by building “urban legends” whose sole purpose is to promote “a climate of fear” and so that private security companies do business. These are the arguments that the PSOE and Podemos parties have put forward to reject today the motion of Vox, the third largest party, in which it requested a modification of the Criminal Procedure Law so that the evictions take place in 24 hours or less and the legal reforms that make those responsible pay with jail, “not with small fines.”

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.

Purchasing a funeral plan with Golden Leaves enables you to plan, design and pay for your funeral services in advance.

Vetiver Spain in Sayalonga is now fully open!
We have started to receive clients but by appointment only. It is wonderful to finally be able to have visitors! We are of course following the legal guidelines regarding masks and social distancing.
The summer is a great time to plant Vetiver as this plant is indigenous to India. Vetiver loves the heat of summer to grow. Vetiver is often used as a wind barrier in the fall and winter months. Vetiver is the best plant to stabilise erosion prone locations before the first fall rains come. We have plenty of plants in stock for either pickup or delivery via the Spanish Correos.
It is always a great way to spend a day in the garden.
We also have Moringa seeds, Lemon Grass, Moringa seedlings and now our new product, Organic Moringa Powder. If you do not know the medicinal powers of Moringa you can check it out here. https://www.vetiverspain.org/moringa-oleifera-.html
This month we have some specials for both pickup and shipments.

Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating. If there is no verifiable source provided with the info, while it may contain some degree of truth (as do all good lies) you should always have a healthy degree of scepticism. -Ed.

 

Ministry of Health registers new 241 deaths- Spain returns to State of Alarm levels: {translated from seville.abc.es} The Ministry notifies of 10,799 new cases and 241 deaths in the last 24 hours, a number that has not been seen since last May 1, when 276 deaths were registered. According to Health calculations, ICUs are at 16.79% of their capacity.
The pandemic continues in Spain, which returns to record numbers at a time when regions are multiplying their efforts to contain contagions. In just 24 hours, the country adds 241 deaths, a figure that it had not seen since the hardest moments of the epidemic, and 10,799 new cases, of which 3,125 correspond to the last 24 hours.
Since last May 1, when were registered 276 deaths (which were reported on day 2), in a state of alarm and with the country confined, such a high death toll is not remembered.
The data provided by Health adds 241 new deaths , which brings the total figure to 30,904 compared to 30,663 in the report this Monday. In the past seven days, 468 people have died with a confirmed diagnosis of coronavirus. This is a slight increase compared to the 311 that were reported in Monday’s report. By region, the Community of Madrid is the community with the highest number of deaths in the last week: 171 (9,129 in total). They are followed by the Basque Country , which registers 65 (1,824 in total) and Andalusia with 47 (1,702 in the total count).
Of the 3,125 new cases in the last 24 hours, 335 have occurred in Andalusia, 308 in Aragon, 68 in Asturias, 28 in the Balearic Islands, 161 in the Canary Islands, 51 in Cantabria, 62 in Castilla-La Mancha, 10 in Castilla y León, 125 in Catalonia, nine in Ceuta, 27 in the Valencian Community, 178 in Extremadura, 73 in Galicia, 953 in Madrid, 16 in Melilla, 56 in Murcia, 348 in Navarra, 291 in the Basque Country and 26 in La Rioja.
At this time, there are 10,629 people admitted for coronavirus throughout the country, which is a slight decrease compared to yesterday’s figures (11,031). The pressure in the ICU is another major concern and there, according to data provided by the Ministry, 1,348 occupied beds (also a slight decrease compared with Monday, when they were 1,417), although in the last 24 hours have produced 949 admissions and 416 discharges. The occupancy rate of beds occupied by coronavirus is already 9.6%, while ICUs are at 16.79% of their capacity.

Spain’s new decree on working from home – everything we know so far: A preliminary agreement was reached on Monday by the government, unions and business associations on a legal framework for teleworking, something that was not a common practice in the country until the coronavirus pandemic hit.

As Europe faces 2nd wave of virus, tracing apps lack impact: Mobile apps tracing new COVID-19 cases were touted as a key part of Europe’s plan to beat the coronavirus outbreak. Seven months into the pandemic, virus cases are surging again and the apps have not been widely adopted due to privacy concerns, technical problems and lack of interest from the public.
A few countries have scrapped their tracing apps and others that have rolled them out have found so few users that the technology is not very effective. The adoption rate goes from about a third of the population in Finland and Ireland, to 22% in Germany and a meager 4% in France. Health officials initially targeted a 60% adoption rate, an optimistic goal based on an Oxford University study from April although researchers noted a lower uptake still helps if other measures, such as social distancing, are enforced.

Moonette Aromatic Skincare for 40+
*We are a Torrox based company specializing in the creation of formulas which help prevent premature skin ageing*
As our skin is the first layer of our defence against microbial infections, ultraviolet radiation and environmental contamination it plays a vital role in our lives. As we grow older however, our skin will become thinner, more sensitive, less firm and require the use of treatments containing specific ingredients to the care of treating mature skin.
Recognizing this need we have created a range of formulas which help reduce the appearance of the signs of ageing by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, and also by eliminating blemishes and imperfection.
At Moonette, we are passionate about health, beauty and plants. Your skin will benefit from the properties of botanic essential oils combined with a selection of nutrients for deep hydration and cell revitalization, all sourced from the finest natural ingredients.
Naturally, we care about our planet and feel the need to help reduce the sheer volumes of plastics waste that are generated daily around the globe. Presently, we are minimizing the usage of plastic materials in our production while seeking alternative forms of packaging. To help reduce pollution we are asking all customers to recycle or reuse their Moonette skincare containers, and offering:
* A discount on future purchases to clients recycling containers
Free testers of eye cream, face cream, and body cream are available on request. You can also try out testers in 2 beauty salons in Torre del Mar and Puente Don Manuel (Alcaucin).

Recommendations & Requests

 

Iguana Found: If anybody has lost a pet Iguana in the Manzano Alto región of Torrox campo please contact me – neighbours have had their entire veg crop eaten! Hungry little bugger! May not be a pet but just thought I’d ask. Nigel
Email: littlenige@mail.com

 

UK Banks: Thanks Naythan for publishing the links to articles on UK banks and passporting. We have already heard we are losing our Barclaycard in a few weeks and are just waiting for the ‘other shoe to drop’ with news from our UK banks. We thought we had an ‘international’ account with Lloyds international but it seems it means international everywhere except the EU! We don’t have family in the UK and wouldn’t wish to ask a friend to allow us to use their address. Not keen on having pensions sent straight to Spain for various reasons. Any good solutions out there? Margaret, Benajarafe,

Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating.

BREAKING NEWS– Covid-19: UK coronavirus alert level moving to 4: The UK’s coronavirus alert level is being upgraded from 3 to 4, meaning transmission is “high or rising exponentially”, its chief medical officers have said. It comes after the government’s scientific adviser warned there could be 50,000 new coronavirus cases a day by mid-October without further action.
On Monday, a further 4,368 daily cases were reported in the UK, up from 3,899.
BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg said it sounded “very likely” that pubs and other venues in England will be forced to have 22:00 closing times, alongside other measures. Full story: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-54241580
