Recommendations & Requests

 

Going to / from Airport: The information from Nerja Foreigners office is that you are allowed to go to the airport. I landed last week at 10.30pm. My husband collected me. There were no police on the roads but we were stopped at the exit to Nerja. We showed the Guardia Civil my flight details, passenger locator form (QR code) and my passport. They were happy with the information given and waved us through. Dawn, Nerja, Towellfamily at Hotmail . com

 

Hearing aids: I have new hearing aids from Auditec, in Torre del mar (near the Hospital). I would like to recommend their friendly, efficient service, up to date technology and excellent after service. English and German are spoken.

Scotland Shuts its doors: Entering the country from the rest of the UK is banned. Crossing the Scottish border will be illegal from the end of this week under sweeping new Covid restrictions which critics have described as ‘deeply flawed’.
As of 6pm on Friday, entering or leaving Scotland without a reasonable excuse is banned and anyone caught doing so could be slapped with a £60 fine.
People living within Level Three or Level Four lockdown areas – which includes vast swathes of central Scotland – are also not permitted to leave their area.
But First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has been hit with claims that the rules cannot be legally put in place by Scottish parliament – sparking fears that lockdown-defying travellers could dispute their fines.
Futhermore, a list of bizarre exceptions have been put in place which would allow the travel rules to be breached.
Scots can leave the country – or their locked down area – to feed an animal, donate blood or take a driving test.
Exemptions to the travel ban also apply for more common essential travel reasons, including for health, work or for school.
It also emerged that people who are banned from travelling to an airport because of the rules are unlikely to receive compensation if their flight goes ahead.

Tennis News- Djokovic tops Zverev, into semis in London: Novak Djokovic ensured the world’s top four players reached the semifinals of the ATP Finals for the first time since 2004 by eliminating Alexander Zverev 6-3, 7-6 (4) on Friday.
The top-ranked Djokovic faces Dominic Thiem on Saturday as he goes for a record-tying sixth title at the season-ending tournament, and a first since 2015.
No. 2-ranked Rafael Nadal will take on No. 4 Daniil Medvedev in the second semifinal. Nadal is trying for the 10th time to win his first ATP Finals crown.
Medvedev warmed up by blowing away Diego Schwartzman 6-3, 6-3 late Friday in the empty O2 Arena, topping their group with three wins in six sets. Source: https://www.tsn.ca/djokovic-beats-zverev-advances-to-semifinals-at-atp-finals-1.1554432

 

Do digital Covid-19 contact tracing apps work? Here’s what you need to know: Effective contact tracing, whether it’s done by a human or by an app, is a three-pronged process: identify who has the virus, identify who those people have spent time with, and convince those contacts to stay home.
Access to testing has remained a fundamental problem—apps can’t work if users don’t get tested for covid-19. And if people do get tests, they need to trust their governments (or tech companies) enough to enter positive results into the app. Finally, everyone who gets an exposure notification needs to take advice about properly isolating.

EU hit by new crisis, this time over money and values: The European Union still hasn’t completely sorted out its messy post-divorce relationship with Britain, but it has already been plunged into another major crisis.
This time the 27-member union is being tested as Poland and Hungary block passage of its budget for the next seven years and an ambitious package aimed at rescuing economies ravaged by the coronavirus pandemic.
Their objection? A new “rule-of-law mechanism” that would allow the bloc to deny funds to countries that violate EU established democratic norms – something that both Poland and Hungary have been accused of doing for years.
Ahead of a virtual EU summit Thursday where leaders hope to end the stalemate, here is a look at the budget battle. Full article: https://apnews.com/article/budapest-poland-summits-coronavirus-pandemic-hungary-dc67676c3ec8210551a2613fb6b1fa31
