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.
