COVID-19 VIRUS HOTLINE: Information hotline for those who suspect they may have the coronavirus. Anyone experiencing symptoms should stay at home and dial 900 400 061 or 955 545 060 – and only call 112 in an emergency.

For the official Andalucia Covid rules effective 00:01 Sunday, Jan. 17th, see the News and COVID Info Reference in the News Section of this issue of DigameXtra https://digamextra.com/2021/01/17/digamextra-no-1843-sunday-jan-17th-2021/ Note: some towns are now modifying their hospitality and capacity rules as they move between different “grades” of Phase 4 restrictions.

 

WARNING- This Covid restriction map site is no longer updated in a timely fashion.  https://www.mapacovid.es/ 

NEW OPTION: For an updated Covid restriction map visit this site. Unfortunately this map does not zoom in using the mouse wheel, so it can be difficult to see the smallest towns. https://sevilla.abc.es/andalucia/sevi-mapa-covid-19-andalucia-restricciones-y-medidas-contra-coronavirus-municipio-202102101441_noticia.html?

 

Another good, reliable source for updated Covid news, announcements and statistics is the Junta de Andalucia’s FB page. It’s mostly in Spanish but they post easy to understand charts and graphs. For English, use a page translator as they have not enabled FB auto-translations on the page for some reason? https://www.facebook.com/AndaluciaJunta/

Powerful earthquake rocks Fukushima in Japan: A strong earthquake struck off the coast of Fukushima, Japan, on Saturday, just weeks before the 10-year anniversary of the deadly 2011 tsunami.
The quake was 7.3 magnitude and was felt strongly in Tokyo, but a tsunami warning has not been issued, weather officials said.
Almost one million homes are now without power in the region.
This struck near the epicentre of a 2011 quake, which triggered a tsunami and killed more than 18,000 people.
That tsunami caused a nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant – the world’s most severe nuclear accident since the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.
Saturday’s quake occurred at 23:08 local time (14:08 GMT) at a depth of 60km (37 miles) in the Pacific, off Japan’s eastern coast, Japan’s meteorological agency (JMA) said.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato told reporters that evaluations were under way, including of the region’s nuclear plants. Full article: https://www.msn.com/en-xl/news/other/powerful-earthquake-rocks-fukushima-in-japan/ar-BB1dEIHr

 

Big Brother Is Moving In- Google chooses Malaga to open a cybersecurity research and training center: And get this…Google will be moving into the building of the old Military Government, located on Paseo de la Farola. Yikes! The symbology will spur on some interesting conspiracy theories no doubt.
Could Malaga be the new Silicon Valley? Well maybe, at least that explains the new super fast internet speeds now available in the larger towns. In the rooms of this building, when the works are completed, Google will be offering training, talks, workshops and mentoring on cybersecurity, in addition to developing research and product development. Google intends to invest more than 650 million dollars in five years in Spain to help the digital transformation of the country.
This is just the kind of stimulus we need in this region. Investors will be attracted to the new tech hub. They will bring in new businesses and the associated support services, providing desperately needed jobs for all, and especially benefitting the tech savvy young people.
We may well become a testing ground for all kinds of new wizardry, some good, others not so much. Among the things we could see in the not so far off future are: self checkout at shops, driverless cars, robot deliveries, ubiquitous surveillance, smart-homes, smart glasses, hologram clerks & entertainers and health tracking implants.
