DigameXtra sends out over 4200 email issues everyday to subscribers, and the website gets another 800 visits per day. That is way better exposure than you are getting in any FB posts!!! Entertainers get to post their shows for free as long as they are subscribed to this newsletter. What are you waiting for?

Juanma Moreno: “On Sunday the curfew in Andalusia ends when the state of alarm ends”: {Translation}
-“On Monday the curfew ends and we cannot close beaches with very high levels of contagion because the state of alarm ends. The communities are tied in knots”. This is the message of the president of the Junta, Juanma Moreno, who on Monday insisted that the Executive Pedro Sánchez has to give a legal umbrella to the autonomous regions to manage the pandemic after the end of the state of alarm on Sunday 9 May.
-The central government does not seem to have any intention of extending this table, but Moreno has indicated that this reluctance may be overcome after the elections to the Madrid regional government, which take place this Tuesday. “There is still time. I hope that when the elections are over, the government will feel liberated and will provide a regulatory framework so that the communities are not naked” in the management of the pandemic, the Andalusian president said.
-For Moreno, equally valid would be an extension of the state of alarm, an emergency law or changes to the Public Health Law that would enable the communities to close mobility or limit meetings, fundamental rights protected by the Constitution.
-Moreno has once again asked the central government for tools with which “to be able to tell a sick person not to leave the house or to close municipalities or provinces” or even to impose “a curfew, which has helped to prevent the spread of the virus”.
-And if there is no help from Pedro Sánchez’s government? Then the Andalusian government intends to act “within its sphere of competence”, in other words, “to restrict opening hours and when there are many cases in an area we would try to close that locality by asking permission from the judicial authority”.
-However, this option, Moreno stressed, would reduce the speed of the Junta’s action in controlling the pandemic. By having to consult a judge on each measure, the Andalusian government “loses time” in tackling contagion, he pointed out.
