All but seven districts of Andalusia are now at Covid level 0 and their restrictions are lifted: {Translation, 1st 5 paragraphs only} Updated: 06/10/2021 17:55
-The end of the restrictions and measures against Covid-19 is advancing in Andalusia. Thanks to the drop in the number of infections and hospitalisations, as well as the decrease in the incidence rate, this Thursday all the districts except the province of Almeria, Huelva Costa, Condado-Campiña, Costa del Sol and Seville capital have joined the level 0 health alert. This means that almost two thirds of the community are now living as they did before the pandemic, except for the use of masks indoors.
-These new level 0 areas join the whole of the provinces of Cádiz and Jaén, as well as the Sierra de Huelva, Córdoba North, Guadalquivir and capital, Granada capital and Granada Northeast. These are the areas in which the population has been living since last week without restrictions on capacity or timetables.
-In this way, and with the decision of the territorial committees that have been known this Wednesday, only seven health districts remain at level 1 alert. These are the areas where there are still certain restrictions on activity, although there are fewer and fewer of them. In fact, since last week the territories of the community that are on level 1 alert can have bars and nightclubs open until 5 am. In addition, bars can serve until one o’clock in the morning on the terrace and close at two o’clock.
-But what does alert level 0 mean? Basically it is a return to pre-pandemic normality except for the use of masks. As the Andalusian government has explained, it means that all restrictions on capacity and opening hours beyond the municipal regulations prior to the pandemic will disappear. The only element reminiscent of the health crisis is the use of masks indoors, which is still compulsory even at this level 0.
-The near-normal situation in almost all of Andalusia is largely the result of the vaccination process. With nearly 90 percent of the target population, i.e. those over 11 years of age, already immunised, the effects of the reduction in contagion and the increase in the number of cases are being felt.

Costa del Sol health district remains at alert Level 1 as the rest of Malaga province enjoys eased Covid measures: The entire province of Malaga has moved to coronavirus health alert Level 0, with the exception of the Costa del Sol health district, which will retain the restrictions on opening hours and capacity that bars, restaurants, shops and other businesses have endured since the start of the pandemic.

Andalucía’s Covid-19 incidence rate keeps falling to reach 38.4:
The coronavirus cumulative incidence rate in Andalucía this Wednesday, 6 October 6, stands at 38.4 Covid cases per 100,000 inhabitants, which is down 2.5 in 24 hours and some 13.11 lower than a week ago.
The region has registered 264 new coronavirus infections, a figure slightly higher than the 218 on Tuesday, but lower than the 321 a week ago, according to data from the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography (IECA).
The official Junta organisation has also counted 10 deaths, three less than the day before and six more than those of last Wednesday. Full article: https://www.surinenglish.com/andalucia/andalucias-covid19-incidence-20211006162500-nt.html

How and who will be penalized for having an empty home: {Translation} The coalition government of the PSOE and United We Can carry out the new Housing law , which will mainly control, in part, the price of rents, in addition to putting the focus on empty homes.
For this, the Executive plans to increase the Property and Real Estate Tax (IBI) to those large owners who have their homes empty .
Thus, the preliminary project plans to increase this tax to 150% for unoccupied flats; Sevilla.ABC reports that the measure will affect homeowners who have more than four homes, and at least two of them have to be vacant for a period of two years or more.
When this punishment is delimited to the owner, it will be the city council that will decide whether to apply the surcharge or not.
The new housing law has clashed with the coalition government. Ministry of Economy Nadia Calviño’s was against rent control, considering that it affects legal security in Spain, something that the CEOE also shares.
On the part of United We Can, it was a condition to be made to approve the next Budgets. The formation of Ione Belarra threatened not to support them if these housing regulations were not carried out.

The European Parliament “micro manages” local neighborhoods, requires a speed limit to 30km/h in all residential areas: In a resolution that seeks to reduce fatal accidents, the European Parliament has proposed a battery of measures to put an end to deaths, 22,700 each year, on the roads of the EU. MEPs note that mortality reduction has stalled in recent years and the EU did not achieve its goal of cut deaths by half from 2010 to 2020.
As the main proposal, the European Parliament demands to establish a limit of 30 kilometers per hour in residential areas and those in which there is a high number of cyclists and pedestrians.

Anti-Piracy Coalition Takes Control of Dozens of Pirate IPTV Domains: The powerful global anti-piracy coalition Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment has taken over yet more pirate IPTV-related domains.

Google to turn on 2-factor authentication(2SA or 2SV, same thing) by default for 150 million users: Google has announced plans to automatically enroll about 150 million users into its 2SA scheme by the end of the year as part of its ongoing efforts to prevent unauthorized access to accounts and improve security.
In addition, the internet giant said it also intends to require 2 million YouTube creators to switch on the setting to protect their channels from potential takeover attacks. Full article: https://thehackernews.com/2021/10/google-to-turns-on-2-factor.html
(Note: 2SV or 2SA are the same thing, it is also called 2FA.
These are: 2 Step Verification, 2 Step Authentication and 2 Factor Authentication.
It is where you not only provide your user name and password to log-in, but must also provide a security code sent to your mobile as a text msg or sent by email. This makes signing in more time consuming and if you use a mobile to receive the codes, and lose the phone, you get locked out. Recovering the account if you can’t get the codes can take days of hassle with customer support!
This really has very little to do with security, if you use a proper password with at least 13 mixed characters of  upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation marks, that is virtually un-hackable, unless you are tricked into giving the password out.
The real reason for 2SA is when they send a code to your smartphone, they get your exact location, within a few meters. Having that location adds a lot of value to the data of yours that they are collecting and selling to cover the cost of these free services. So if you use 2SA, I strongly suggest you set it to send security codes to your email, NOT a text to your mobile. That way they can’t track your movements and you will still be able to get the security codes in the case you mis-place your mobile. -Ed.)
