Covid Malaga- Covid incidence rate in Malaga province climbs from 74.5 to 83.2: In five of the six health districts (Axarquía, Costa del Sol, Malaga, Serranía and Valle del Guadalhorce) the cumulative incidence rate for the disease has increased
The 201 cases of coronavirus reported in Malaga over the weekend is the highest number recorded amongst the Andalusian provinces.

Wave of protests over price hikes puts a damper on financial recovery: Truckers, farmers, auto and metal workers, hairdressers and pensioners are all staging marches against soaring production costs and inflation.
The recovery seems to be right around the corner just when people’s patience has reached its limit amid a blend of different realities and expectations. This is taking the form of growing street unrest: truck drivers have called a three-day strike over Christmas to complain about rising diesel prices; metal workers in Cádiz have been putting up street barricades to protest inflation spikes that are cutting into their salaries; auto workers have called a demonstration in Madrid on Monday over factory shutdowns caused by car chip shortages; consumer associations have already organized several marches against rising electricity bills, and even hairdressers have been staging sit-ins to demand lower value-added tax rates. The common thread is the rising cost of living and, for the self-employed, of running a business.

Proposed Law In Public Discussion Phase- Should customers will be able to take their leftovers from restaurants in their own containers?:
-This measure is part of the Royal Decree that regulates and clarifies certain requirements regarding hygiene and marketing of food products that are served in retail establishments, for which the Ministry of Consumer Affairs has opened a public hearing this Monday that will last 15 days.

-In addition, to avoid food waste, these establishments may sell products that present defects in shape, size, labeling or packaging when they do not affect their safety and consumers are informed of this circumstance.

Tennis WTA- Chinese tennis player’s call with Olympic chief is not enough: Chinese tennis player Peng Shuai’s video call with International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Thomas Bach did not address or alleviate concerns about her well-being, the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) said on Monday.

Football News- Football Super League squabble arrives at the European Parliament: Promoters of the controversial Super League football tournament have sent a letter to EU lawmakers ahead of this week’s vote in the European Parliament on a sports-related report, attacking what they said was the monopoly of Europe’s “self-established” football governing body UEFA.
In particular, they accuse UEFA of not respecting the EU competition law. “The conflicts of interest are obvious as is the incompatibility with EU competition law,” the letter reads.
“UEFA, the self-established ‘governing body’ of European football has, in addition to its alleged regulatory role, also established itself as the monopoly operator of cross-border club football competitions,” it continues.

The next pandemic- How Covid-19 has accelerated the emergence of super-bacteria: On occasion of the annual World Antimicrobial Awareness Week, which began on November 18 and runs until November 24, the relevant authorities have sounded the trumpets of the Apocalypse.
Health authorities warn that antibiotics are losing their effectiveness against disease and that humanity faces a future in which any minor infection could prove lethal.
Treatments to counter bacteria are ceasing to work, now at an even greater speed due to excessive and incorrect consumption of antibiotics during the coronavirus pandemic. Cristina Muñoz, co-director of the National Plan against Resistance to Antibiotics (PRAN), paints a dystopian image of a world without antibiotics, where any minor infection could prove lethal: no Caesarian sections, no organ transplants, no meniscus operations, no hip replacements.
“It would be taking a backward step equivalent to 100 years of medical advances,” says Muñoz. Full article: https://english.elpais.com/usa/2021-11-22/the-next-pandemic-how-covid-19-has-accelerated-the-emergence-of-super-bacteria.html
