Andalusia enters Easter with the highest number of coronavirus infections in a month and a half: {Translated from sevilla.abc.es} Updated:27/03/2021 18:46
-Andalusia continues to be at 1,300 cases of coronavirus infection. This Saturday it has added 1,329 and yesterday, 1,320. Thus, the community enters Easter with the highest figures since mid-February and points in the direction that was already intuited yesterday: infections are slowly rising and the plateau seems to be tentatively leaning towards the rise.
-There is more data to support the theory of a change of trend in the pandemic curve. The number of people hospitalised this Saturday rose by ten, to 1,015. The figure is very discreet but relevant as it occurred on a Saturday, when the number of people admitted to hospital normally falls if the curve is downward or flat. The fact that there are more inpatients today also points to a growth in the curve.
-In the case of the ICU there is a decrease. Thus, there are 234 Andalusians admitted to intensive care in the community, the lowest number since the beginning of January.
-But while the number of cases of coronavirus infection seems to be increasing, the number of deaths confirms its decline. This Saturday, 15 deaths have been recorded, less than half of a week ago, when 34 were reported. This trend has been repeated since last Monday, when the death toll of the pandemic seems to be decreasing as the days go by.

Spain to require negative PCR at French land border: Anyone crossing the land border from France into Spain will have to present a negative PCR taken in the last 72 hours, the Spanish government’s official bulletin said on Saturday.
The measure, which takes effect on Tuesday, March 30th, comes as Spain ramps up restrictions in the hope it can avoid a surge in cases over Holy Week, which begins this weekend.
It is the first time such a requirement has been imposed on those crossing the land border between the two countries; until now, it has only been required of arrivals by air.
“They must have a PCR test (RT-PCR), a TMA test or another type of diagnostic test for SARS-CoV-2 based on equivalent molecular techniques, with a negative result, carried out in the 72 hours prior to arrival,” the bulletin said.

New Amsterdam Will Be Looking Like Old Amsterdam Next Year: New York Reaches a Deal to Legalize Recreational Marijuana. State lawmakers finalized a deal on Thursday to legalize recreational marijuana in New York, paving the way for a potential $4.2 billion industry that could create tens of thousands of jobs and become one of the largest markets in the country.
Following several failed attempts, lawmakers in Albany struck an agreement with Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to legalize cannabis for adults 21 and older, a move that officials hope will help end years of racially disproportionate policing that saw Black and Hispanic people arrested on low-level marijuana charges far more frequently than white people.
The deal would allow delivery of the drug and permit club-like lounges or “consumption sites” where marijuana, but not alcohol, could be consumed, according to details obtained by The New York Times. It would also allow a person to cultivate up to six marijuana plants at home, indoors or outdoors, for personal use.
