Covid Andalucia- 868 new cases, five deaths, and raises the incidence to 105,9: {Translation} 01/12/2021 · 11:55
-Andalusia recorded this Wednesday, December 1, a total of 868 coronavirus infections in 24 hours, less than those of Tuesday (915) and more than those of last Wednesday (725), and recorded five new deaths, compared to two yesterday and last Wednesday.

-Institute of Statistics and Cartography of Andalusia (IECA), specifies that the incidence in 14 days increases 0.8 points in 24 hours and is at 105.9 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, also higher than the 76.8 of the same day last week.
-The 868 cases reported on Wednesday follow 915 on Tuesday, 883 on Monday and Sunday, 741 on Saturday, 1,045 on Friday, 983 on Thursday and 783 on Wednesday.

The whole of Andalucía remains at Covid health alert Level 0 – with no new capacity or opening hour restrictions: The whole of the Andalucía region will remain at coronavirus health alert Level 0, it was decided this Wednesday, 1 December.
As a result no new measures have been adopted to limit capacity or hours in bars and restaurants in an attempt to stop the transmission of the coronavirus.
The indications are that the next meetings of the Junta’s territorial committees will probably now be held after the long ‘puente’ of public holidays, which includes Constitution Day on Monday and the Immaculate Conception on Wednesday.

Andalusia opens the schedules of vaccination with a third dose at age 60 years: {Translation} 1Dec21 13:00
-The Andalusian Health Service (SAS) has already opened the schedules for self-citation for the third dose of messenger RNA vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) to people aged 60 to 64 years, after this possibility was opened last 22nd for those aged 65 to 69. This third dose will be inoculated as long as six months have elapsed since the second dose of messenger RNA or three months since the second dose of AstraZeneca. Pfizer or Moderna vaccine may be administered regardless of the vaccine previously received.
-People from 60 to 64 years of age can already request an appointment for the administration of this third dose through the usual channels: the SAS website through ClicSalud+, the mobile application and the Salud Responde telephone number (955 54 50 60) and also at their health center, preferably by telephone.
Currently, 1,054,724 Andalusians have already received the third dose. Source, Spanish: https://www.axarquiahoy.es/articulo/salud/andalucia-abre-agendas-vacunacion-tercera-dosis-mayores-60-anos/20211201102528045002.html


Six villages in Malaga at very high or high risk from Covid: {Translation} 1Dec21 17:30
-Six towns in the province of Malaga are at very high or high risk of spreading Covid.

Tennis News- Inspired Djokovic powers Serbia into Davis Cup semi-finals: Imperious Novak Djokovic sent Serbia into a Davis Cup semi-final against Croatia as the world number one inspired a comeback victory over Kazakhstan in Madrid on Wednesday.
Serbia had their backs to the wall when Kazakh veteran Mikhail Kukushkin beat debutant Miomir Kecmanovic in a three-hour epic in the first singles rubber.
But Djokovic calmly levelled the tie with a straight-sets defeat of Alexander Bublik before returning to court to team up with Nikola Cacic and beat Kazakh pair Andrey Golubev and Aleksandr Nedovyesov 6-2 2-6 6-3.

WTA suspends tournament play in China over concern for Peng Shuai’s safety: In the strongest public stand against China taken by a sports body, the head of the women’s professional tennis tour announced Wednesday that all WTA tournaments there would be suspended because of concerns about the safety of Peng Shuai, a Grand Slam doubles champion who accused a former government official of sexual assault.
Peng dropped out of public view after raising the allegations about former vice premier Zhang Gaoli in a Nov. 2 social media posting that was quickly taken down by Chinese authorities.

Edge Browser- Users rage against Microsoft for integrating ‘buy now, pay later’ app into Edge: Microsoft announced plans a few weeks ago to build the Zip app directly into its Edge browser. The short-term financing service gives users the option to sign up on checkout pages when they enter their credit card number. It also appears as a prompt on a web page in some cases.
Zip appears when Edge detects you’re about to buy something priced between $35 and $1,000. There are no up-front payments, and it’s all interest-free—you just make four payments over six weeks. Zip charges $1 per payment, adding $4 to the total cost, and while that’s a good deal when paying $1,000, it’s an extra 11% when buying something for $35.
In addition to what appears to be greediness on Microsoft’s part and the fact that this is adding more bloatware to Edge, there are also security concerns around Zip’s addition. Moreover, it has the potential to land some people in financial difficulties.
Microsoft made Edge a much more appealing prospect when it officially moved to a Chromium-based version last year, but nagging Bing alerts and third-party integrations haven’t helped its cause.
