Covid Andalucia- Andalucía’s Covid incidence rate drops below 300: A total of 2,102 coronavirus positive tests have been recorded in the Andalusian region this Thursday, 26 August, that is 342 more in the last 24 hours and 71 more than those recorded seven days ago.
-The Junta de Andalucía’s Ministry of Health, has also added 23 deaths, seven more than the day before. Of the 23 deaths registered in the last 24 hours, in Seville there were eleven, followed by five in Malaga, two in Huelva, Jaén and Almeria and one in Cordoba. Cádiz and Granada provinces did not register any Covid deaths in the latest update.
-The cumulative incidence rate of the region has dropped some 17.6, compared to the previous day, to stand at 289.5.
-There has been a decrease of 76 patients in hospital with Covid compared to the day before to stand at 1,145. There are 217 patients registered in intensive care units, eight fewer than Wednesday and 12 fewer than a week ago.

Electricity price in Spain breaks all records, with the most expensive bills in history on the way:
-The wholesale price of electricity in Spain continues to climb – without respite. When it was thought that it had peaked, this Thursday (26 August) the average daily price of electricity in the wholesale market will shoot to a new all-time high, reaching 122.76 euros per megawatt hour (MWh).
-The previous record was set on 13 August, when the energy price hit 117.29 euros/MWh, but the latest increase will see it jump more than five euros compared to that. This is despite a brief drop in the wholesale price being registered last week.
-Therefore, the average wholesale price of electricity will be triple that of a year ago, when it stood at 46.25 euros.
-It means that the electricity bill of an average user in August will be the most expensive in history, with an increase in the first fortnight of 43.7 per cent compared to the same period last year, according to the Facua consumers organisation.
-Therefore, the average user will pay 27.85 euros more than in August 2020, when the bill stood at 63.77 euros. The reduction in sales tax to 10 per cent until December, while the average price per megawatt hour is above 45 euros, dampens the rise by 9.16 euros. If the normal 21 per cent were still applied, the average bill would top 100.78 euros. Source:


Spain Adds Germany, Norway, Bulgaria, & Slovenia to Its High-Risk List:
-Travellers reaching Spain from Germany, Norway, Bulgaria, and Slovenia are now subject to stricter entry restrictions upon arrival in this country, as all four have been added to Spain’s list of high-risk COVID-19 countries and regions, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.
-The Spanish Ministry of Health has also added a few more regions of Austria, Croatia, France and Italy to the list of high-risk countries and territories. Full article: https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/news/spain-adds-germany-norway-bulgaria-slovenia-to-its-high-risk-list/


Ribera admits that electricity will remain at “high prices” until 2022 and questions Podemos’ proposals: {Translation, summary}
-The third vice-president, Teresa Ribera, admitted on Thursday that “all indications point” to the fact that electricity “will continue to have high prices” during the last quarter of the year.
-The Minister for Ecological Transition also considered it “pertinent” to open a debate on the taxation of energy and electricity, but warned that this matter “has a notable technical complexity from the point of view of its relationship with other taxes” and that, although the Treasury is “reviewing” the data, “there will be no results” until the beginning of 2022.

Announced- the extension of the road from Canillas to Cómpeta by 2022: {Translation, summary}
The Councillor for Development, Infrastructure and Territorial Planning, Marifrán Carazo, together with the mayors of the Axarquia region of Málaga, presented this Thursday the road safety project on the A-7207 road, which connects Canillas de Albaida and Torrox and which will receive an investment of 1.8 million euros to widen the roadway in a four kilometre stretch and improve traffic flow at a dangerous junction by building a roundabout. The section of the road runs between kilometres 0 and 4 of the A-7207, between the municipalities of Canillas de Albaida and Cómpeta. The councillor has advanced that, if the planned deadlines are met, the work will be awarded before the end of the year and can begin in the first months of 2022 with a completion period of 14 months.

Dozens of civilians, 12 U.S. troops killed in Kabul airport attack: Islamic State struck the crowded gates of Kabul airport in a suicide bomb attack on Thursday, killing scores of civilians and 12 U.S. troops, and throwing into mayhem the airlift of tens of thousands of Afghans desperate to flee.
-Kabul health officials were quoted as saying 60 civilians were killed. Video shot by Afghan journalists showed dozens of bodies strewn around a canal on the edge of the airport. At least two blasts rocked the area, witnesses said.
-Islamic State, which has emerged in Afghanistan as enemies both of the West and the Taliban, claimed responsibility in a statement in which it said one of its suicide bombers targeted “translators and collaborators with the American army”.
-Violence by Islamic State is a challenge for the Taliban, who have promised Afghans they will bring peace to the country they swiftly conquered. A Taliban spokesman described the attack as the work of “evil circles” who would be suppressed once foreign troops leave. Photo:MaxarTech.
