What’s On

Tell them you saw it on DigameXtra! Tell your favourite establishments to post on DigameXtra to get next-day publicity!

Due to the new Curfew, to avoid disappointment I suggest you call to confirm events and times before the event. -Ed.

The Lockdown Rumour Mill: There is a lot of talk going around on radio programs and Fakebook suggesting Andalucia is headed back to Home Confinement. Do not believe the rumours, only the National Gov’t can declare home confinement. That requires a vote, so we will have advance notice if such a vote is scheduled. There should be an official update later this week, or early next week when they must review/renew the curfew.

Andalucian president says he will announce fresh restrictions on Sunday: The regional president, Juanma Moreno, told the Andalucian parliament on Thursday this week (5 November) that he was getting ready to announce new restrictions on Sunday for the region, starting from Monday (9 November). However he stopped short of saying what they would be.
On Sunday, the national government’s nighttime curfew order expires and it is left to each of Spain’s devolved regions to decide what to do locally. “If the figures from now to Sunday don’t evolve, it’s my responsibility to take decisions,” explained Moreno, saying he would meet with his committee of experts first. Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/local/202011/06/andalusian-president-says-will-20201106015915.html  (Editorial note- The regional president, Juanma Moreno has limited tools available to tighten the existing controls. One thing he can do, and this has been covered here in earlier articles on this topic, is to force businesses to close even earlier than 11pm. He has discussed closing business in the afternoon, allowing “morning business” only. This will do huge damage to all businesses who rely on afternoon and evening customer traffic. If you disagree with an earlier business curfew you only have TODAY to contact the Andalucian authorities let them know how you feel. DigameXtra does not take a position on this matter, this is posted for informational purposes only. -Ed.)


Spain sets seven-day record for Covid deaths in second wave:
The number of victims over the last week came in at 1,002 in the latest Health Ministry report, double the figure from one month ago. The infection rate, meanwhile, is starting to slow.
Of these fatalities, 368 were reported in the previous 24 hours. This is the first time in this phase of the pandemic that the former data point has exceeded 1,000. A month ago, on October 5, the number was 366. The total death toll now stands at 38,846. Given that rising Covid deaths reflect a rise in cases from several weeks ago, the number of fatalities is likely to continue increasing given where new infections were headed at that time.

Sweden and Germany removed from England’s travel corridors:
Passengers arriving into the UK from Germany and Sweden from 4am on Saturday 7 November 2020 will need to self-isolate for 2 weeks before then following domestic rules.
In England, everyone must stay at home, and may leave only for a very limited set of reasons, including for work or education. This means people can no longer travel to take holidays, or travel internationally – unless for work or other legally permitted reasons. The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) has updated its travel advice to reflect this.
Fixed penalties starting at £200 will be given to those found not following the rules, but these fines will double for subsequent offences, up to a maximum of £6,400. Full article: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/germany-and-sweden-removed-from-travel-corridor-list-of-exempt-countries


Why you will soon have to drive slower in cities in Spain:
Spain’s traffic authority plans to lower the generic speed limit in urban areas from 50km/h to 30km/h to counteract the dramatic rise in accidents in recent years caused largely by delivery vehicles.

Update Your iOS Devices Now- 3 Active Exploits Discovered:
Apple on Thursday released multiple security updates to patch three zero-day vulnerabilities that were revealed as being actively exploited in the wild.
Rolled out as part of its iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and watchOS updates, the flaws reside in the FontParser component and the kernel, allowing adversaries to remotely execute arbitrary code and run malicious programs with kernel-level privileges.
The list of impacted devices includes iPhone 5s and later, iPod touch 6th and 7th generation, iPad Air, iPad mini 2 and later, and Apple Watch Series 1 and later.
The fixes are available in versions iOS 12.4.9 and 14.2, iPadOS 14.2, watchOS 5.3.9, 6.2.9, and 7.1, and as a supplemental update for macOS Catalina 10.15.7. Full article: https://thehackernews.com/2020/11/update-your-ios-devices-now-3-actively.html
