Recommendations & Requests


Municipal Office: Does anyone know whether the office in Nerja, where Municipal taxes and payments are made, is open. I need to change my Direct Debit payment details for my apartment and I have emailed and telephoned without any response. Normally I would visit the office but I am in the UK probably until next year. Any help or advice would be very much appreciated. Brian Nerja / UK

News & Articles

(Click the link to read the full article)

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.


Getting a doctor’s appointment this summer has become a real ordeal: Health centres across Malaga province are overwhelmed by the coronavirus situation and it can take up to 14 days to speak to your doctor on the phone. There are long queues of patients waiting to see their doctor in cases where the appointment cannot be put off. It is impossible to ring some health centres because the phones are constantly engaged, and those who try to make an appointment through the Salud Responde app are often given the message that “there are no appointments available at your health centre for the next 14 days”.

Trials for Covid-19 vaccine which was due to arrive in Spain by December are suspended: The third phase of clinical trials for the so-called ‘Oxford vaccine’ against Covid-19, developed by AstraZeneca and Oxford University, have been suspended while an independent committee investigates a suspected adverse reaction in one of the participants. One volunteer in the trial in the UK has suffered an inflammation of the spine – transverse myelitis – which is often caused by viral infections.

Germany announces more focused travel warnings: The German recommendation against all but essential travel to some 160 countries due to the risk of Covid-19 infection will be lifted on September 30, government spokesperson Martina Fiez announced on Wednesday.
From then on the Foreign Ministry will analyse the virus situation in each country and issue specific warnings for nations and for regions. Full story: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2020/09/09/ray-of-hope-for-spanish-tourism-as-germany-announces-more-focused-travel-warnings/


How Secure Is Cryptocurrency (BitCoin, etc)?: European cryptocurrency exchange Eterbase this week disclosed a massive breach of its network by an unknown group of hackers who stole cryptocurrencies worth 5.4 million dollars.
On Monday night, malicious threat actors managed to raid six Eterbase’s hot wallets for Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, Tezos, Algorand, and TRON and transferred the funds into their wallets managed at six rival crypto exchanges, Eterbase reported on its Telegram channel on Tuesday.

US West Coast Wildfires- Half million Oregonians told to flee as Western wildfires kill 24: Around half a million people in Oregon, about an eighth of the state’s total population, were ordered to evacuate as dozens of extreme, wind-driven wildfires scorched U.S. West Coast states on Friday, destroying thousands of homes and killing at least 24 people, state and local authorities said.

British judge begins Julian Assange’s extradition hearing: After months of delays and legal wrangling, a British judge has finally begun hearing arguments on whether WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should be extradited to the United States to face a series of criminal charges, including publishing state secrets.
Mr. Assange watched calmly from behind a glass partition as proceedings began in a London courtroom on Monday. His lawyers argued there were no grounds for extradition because the case against Mr. Assange was politically motivated. No other journalist has ever been prosecuted in the United States for publishing classified material, they added, and these charges have been driven by U.S. President Donald Trump, who has been openly hostile to the media.

Virus spiking in eastern Europe; Hungary drafts ‘war plan’: The number of new confirmed coronavirus cases spiked Friday in parts of eastern Europe, with Hungary and the Czech Republic registering all-time daily highs.

Brexit Hotline

The Spanish government has a hotline to answer all queries from Brits living in Spain about the implications of Brexit, in English. Callers can ring 060 when in Spain or +34 902 887060 if calling from abroad and an automated system will offer the choice of either Spanish or English.
