Correcting flawed submissions: I only make corrections if received by the 6pm deadline the day the incorrect post is published. This is so it can be fixed in the following issue from when it appeared. People posting For Sale items should check their posts in new daily issues for accuracy. If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.photocollage.com/

Lost: I lost my watch, a Fitbit Charge 3, on Friday 13th November somewhere between Tizos at El Ingenio at about 2.15pm and the Hospital Comarcal in Velez Malaga where I noticed it missing at around 2.35 pm. I have enquired in El Ingenio, at Tizos and in the hospital with no success, but suspect it may have slipped from my wrist while walking between the car and one of these areas as the strap had come loose before. I was down on the coast for a hospital appointment and had gone to Tizos first for some lunch. I’ll not be able to return to the area any time soon because of the restriction of movement, so am hoping that someone has spotted it – it is very distinctive with an apple green silicone strap – and picked it up to hand in somewhere. If you have found it or know of someone who has found it, can you please contact me (Gwen) on 672770607 or by email: gjp1949 at Hotmail dot com. Many thanks. Competa area

Without a decrease in Covid infections in Andalusia there will be more restrictions: {Translated from https://seville.abc.es}
The curve of new coronavirus infections in Andalusia refuses to drop sharply. The 4,737 infections registered yesterday in the statistics of the Ministry of Health bring us closer to the figures at the end of October, before the application of the new measures to control the pandemic. With these perspectives, it will not even be possible to meet the most favorable forecasts that the Board is considering and that, according to the vice president of the Andalusian Government , Juan Marín, go through “maintaining” the restrictions in force “at least one week, ten or 15 days” more beyond November 23. “If the health data does not accompany, we will have to make other decisions,” he remarked.
Infections are increasing in all provinces – except Malaga, with only 15 cases less than those recorded on Wednesday. The situation worries in Seville (1,320 cases) and Granada, which, despite initiating mobility limitations in advance, continues around a thousand daily positives, yesterday there were 920.
In this province, the healthcare pressure is maximum with 845 admitted patients, of which 126 require intensive care. This number exceeds the 81 ICU beds that its hospitals have under normal conditions and exceeds half the total number of ICU beds foreseen in the contingency plans of the Ministry of Health.
The Malaga Clinic
But the tension is generalized in all Andalusian hospitals. As an example, the Clinic of Malaga, the province that now has the lowest incidence rate in Andalusia, has installed about twenty beds in the staff cafeteria, transferring this service to the general cafeteria of the center that will not serve the public «from exceptional, temporary and provisional way ”.
El Clínico was the worst hospital in Andalusia during the first wave of the coronavirus and is now preparing for the most complicated weeks of the second wave.
Despite this greater clinical pressure from the pandemic, the most striking data yesterday in the statistics was the decrease in the number of hospitalized, 3,429, which is 48 less than on Wednesday. However, 23 more beds were needed for critical patients in the ICU, which brought the number of patients admitted at this time to the Intensive Care units of Andalusian hospitals to 506. These variations in the statistics of hospitalized patients, with numerous discharges or intensive demand for ICU beds in the same day, is explained by the more rapid evolution of the symptoms of the disease in patients during this second wave of the pandemic.

€6k fine for arriving in Spain without a PCR test: As of November 23, a negative PCR test will be required of all travellers coming from any of the 65 ‘at-risk’ countries.
Tourists and travellers arriving in Spain could face fines up to €6000 if they cannot produce a negative PCR test, according to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Arancha González Laya. In addition to the monetary sanctions, they will be required to undergo a rapid coronavirus test to determine whether they are negative.

Spain prepares support package to aid bars and restaurants hit by coronavirus crisis: According to sources, the measures under consideration include: subsidies and waivers on Social Security payments, increasing the soft loans available through the state-owned bank Instituto de Crédito Español (ICO), helping businesses renegotiate their rental contracts and opening completely new lines of funding for projects and specific needs. Another option is direct money transfers, which is what has been demanded by the industry’s main associations. “Funding lines alone will not be enough because businesses are already heavily in debt,” said José Luis Yzuel, the president of the Spanish Hostelry Association, which represents bars, restaurants and cafés in the country.

Home delivery services allowed through curfew: The Junta de Andalucia has decided to introduce an exception to the time limitation that requires the closure of the hotel and restaurant establishments from 6.00pm to allow them to continue with their activity until 11.30pm, “Exclusively for home delivery service”, setting 10.30pm as the “deadline for placing orders”.

Protests In Malaga Over New Bar And Restaurant Restrictions:
The march started out as a small group, but soon grew in size, getting a lot louder, with the crowd at one point stretching to the end of Calle Larios, and with some very prominent figures from the hospitality industry taking part, including Javier Frutos, who is the president of the local restaurateurs’ association Mahos, accompanied by Rafael Prado from Café Central, and José Cobos, joint owner of El Pimpi, along with owners of numerous chiringuitos, and also some representatives of local companies who supply the bar and restaurant industry.
Frutos stated, “They said that nobody would be left behind, but we have been. We feel unprotected and we have no help”.
A similar protest took place Thursday evening in Ronda as well.
